Shaved stock seat

My seat was killing me as it has alot of us. I decided to try shaving it down like
Beavis has rather then buying a new one first.
It is very easy to do. Took about 2 hours only because of taking some off alittle at a time to it felt right. I highly recommend doing this if you dont like your seat.
Very easy to do and it feels great now.

And maybe a description of the process. Glad to hear it worked for you. I never got a chance to try the stock seat. Bought mine third hand. Already had a Corbin saddle. I like it though.

Tim time to get on that repair/mod bud. If you need a hand with it let me know.
your only about 20 mins from me if that. Im hoping and thinking that after this week its good riding weather from here on out.

I will get to those pics later this week,todays gonna be good for riding too,the
rest of the week is shot,snow showers for 4 days 75 degrees or so today.
Have to ask Al Gore about this weeks weather.
