Yeah, that's the one thing I hate about any on/off-road bike. I understand you need a ton of suspension clearance for it, but then the pile the seats on top of as much other stuff as possible. I'm 5'10", and enduros/duals I have to lean pretty hard to the side when I stop.

Yeh. Harleys are not something you can be talked into. If you want one great but they make very little sense. I love mine but do not discount what it is.

well it already has foam cut out of the seat. that should help. i don't know if the suspension work on my friend's bike lowered it or not. i'll ask him. you need to go join up on the supermoto junkie forum if you haven't already. i know the guy that did his suspension is on there. it made a world of difference, as it would on any bike, in his handling.

Haha yeah I've been on smj for awhile now. What's your buddies forum name on there? On my seat I don't know if material was removed but I do know he added the hump to keep from sliding back on the seat.
