Low Seat - DL1K L8
« on: May 11, 2018, 17:20:53 »
Fitted the new OEM low seat today for the v-banana. Fan-blud-y-tastic..  :happydance: :dance: :happydance:

I'm 5'11 1/2 but my 'suits you sir' is only 31", and coming from years of sport orientated rides I was struggling for flat foot with the extra reach.

New seat is flat foot and far more confidence inspiring at low speed. Feels much more like sitting 'in' it.

Perfect... or should I say 'Radiant Sir'.  :lala:

I concur, at 5'10" after losing confidence on my Crosstourer (too big and heavy) I opted for the low seat (sad that you have to buy it) but feels so much more in control. First trip 200 miles and could have gone further but decided fuel was a good idea.
