Living in Cali, you have all of the best aftermarket seat builder out there. Have you ever considered making a drive-in appointment at Laam or Russel?
That's quite a project with that plastic seat pan, did you get any pictures? (hopeful look)

I have considered using that spare gallon of gas I had strapped to the back of the bike to set it on fire and call 911 to tell them there was a horrible crash but I think the rider got away, then dance around it singing pagan songs until the firetrucks arrived but other than that, no, I haven't looked into modifying the seat.

Crank it up!

Brant, dinner was great and you know how it is as the last few miles roll on by!
