2-26-12 Ride to Weleeka

Today is supposed to be a good day to ride, and Tom has asked us to meet him and Allen at Rudy's in Norman.  We get there and Allen has his side kick, Brandon with him, and they are sporting a brand new bike.  I know how excited they are, and I am just as excited for them.
 We grab some lunch and we are ready to hit the road.  Tom is going to lead us to Weleeka, as he is on a mission for Norma.  He is looking for some of the family graves and going by grandpa's house and get some pics.  I would love to say the ride was wonderful, but I have to admit, it was a bit uncomfortable for me.  We have the new Corbin seat on, and for Chuck to be comfortable, he has to move his back of the seat towards me, and therefore I am scrunched into a very tight space.  I was about beside myself by the time we get to Weleeka.  Chuck is not happy with me, but I can't help it.  Like putting a size 8 foot in a size 5 shoe.  It just doesn't work.  So to say the least, the trip was not that enjoyable.
Tom lead us right to the house he was looking for.  We took a few pics, and Chuck does some adjusting to his backrest.  It did help some for me, but he wasn't comfortable.  Have to say this "seat" issue is really a pain in the seat.  We have tried the Mustang seat, and I love it and he hates it.  The stock seat is just that....it is "stock".....not a lot of padding.  He really likes the Corbin, and I have researched some on the Internet and looks like a relocation kit is going to have to be done to help me get the room I need.  I am just amazed how difficult it is to get both of us happy.  I can usually be pretty OK with about anything, but man, this is one thing I just can't stand.  I am claustrophobic anyway, and when I am given a small space to sit, it just doesn't work.  Not trying to be difficult, but we are going to have to figure this out, and soon.  We are planning on a trip to Florida in a little over a week, and not sure what we are going to do.  One way or the other we will get our seat issue figured out.  Other than this little issue, we had a great day to ride, (windy but what else is new) and got to put some miles on Allen's new bike.  Thanks for asking us to ride Tom.  Glad we were able to find the cemetery.  LOL...
