how badly will the gearing affect ridability in the sand? Im usually in 3rd gear anyways but sometimes 2nd is needed.. will i still be able to do those kind of things in 2nd and 3rd?
Bike still has throttlestop and the AIS.

I took a trip this last spring in which I did three 300+ mile days and managed it ok. I just had to stand up a lot of the time.
Offroad, the gearing is a bit high for anything technical, but I would think sand riding would definitely be doable. I'd say 15-46 is definitely worth it. I can't imagine goind 70 mph with the stock gearing.

Marshal Giles , what seat do you have on your bike? What are your service intervals like?
I still have the stock seat, hence the reason I had to stand up much of the time on my trip. I've never thought about getting a softer seat, actually.
I change the oil at about 500-700 miles.
