Teach Yourself Some Hanging Off, For Greater Good

I’m talking about hanging off in the curves. And yes, on a Gummicow.

Made more possible with an aftermarket seat from Touratech.

It is their one-piece model, aireated, medium height. The original BMW two-piece seat is a bit wide, tractor-ish, like a overstuffed sofa cushion and the cover is too sticky to slide around on. This is something different.
As you can see, it is narrow at the front with a more rounded contour.

And, to cop something from some daft punks: “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”. You need to take care of the last two items! This is where hanging off comes in. The covering allows instantaneous sliding side-to-side, the contour promotes it. Mind you, you might look daft yourself doing that on a cow, a bit like Supermoto riding style enlarged 50%. No matter, it’s fun!
The seat is supposed to be better for long distance, too, not so squishy. And better off-road, too, with a longer, flatter region to slide fore-aft. We’ll see about that.
