Good point. Maybe try to double them up prior to a ride? On a road bike (bicycle) half the padding is on the seat, the other half is in your riding shorts or pants.

Are the low-beam headlights always on when the bike is running @bennymx? I haven't seen them off on my bike yet, and don't see any control on the handlebars besides the high-beam trigger/switch.

Damn. Was hoping the DRLs were only the sexy eye-liner lights that are below the projector lenses. Safety first though.

Hi,
This Sunday I drove my buddy's 2019 S1000RR, new model,EU version, M package with Akrapovič slip on.
I really like new model but I like much more the braking system on the old model(2018 s1000rr sold),especially corner braking.
On new model in Race mode when you press the front brake in corner the whole bike starts raising and you need to correct your riding lane ,on the old model in corner just press the front brake and the whole bike is steady.
Have anyone noticed this?
Cheers!
