HELLO ALL
BOUGHT A NEW 650 BURG IN COLUMBUS OH ON SWEETEST DAY AND MADE IT TO A .5 MILE OF MY HOUSE [APPROX 70 MILES]BEFORE A CAR PULLED OUT IN FRONT OF ME -LESS THEN 100 MILES ON SCOOTER. NO MAJOR DAMAGE JUST PLASTIC FROM ROAD SLIDE.I AM 59 AND HAVE HAD SEVERAL BIKES MOSTLY KAW 500-650-900-[1000] WHICH I SOLD TO GET THE BURG--LOVE IT ALMOST - STILL AFTER 450 MILES STILL NOT KNOWING TO DO WITH MY FEET JUST SETTING THERE DOING NOTHING . BOUGHT A BACK REST FOR MY WIFE [STOCK] BUT ADDED A 6' X 10'' PAD ON TOP FOR COMFORT AND PULLED BACK OF SEAT UP AND ADDED 2' OF FOAM UNDER REAR SEAT--MUCH BETTER- ALSO ADDED PIECES FOR A CAR HOOD DECAL FOR EXTRA FLARE[RED ON SILVER]. MAY BE A LITTLE NUTS GETTING AT 59 BUT HAVING A GREAT TIME HERE IN OHIO.. L.SKULSKI

Welcome on board, Those seat mods sound interisting, can you post some pics?
HI JIM DONOT HAVE CAMERA BUT WITH MIAN SEAT I TOOK OUT STAPLES FROM BACK OF SEAT TO RADIUS AND ROLLED COVER FORWARD-TOOK 2" FOAM AND CUT TO MATCH SEWING OR SEEM OF SEAT-THEN CUT BOTTOM OF FOAM ON AN ANGLE [SIDES,BACK, AND FRONT]SO CORNERS WOULD BE PULLED DOWN AND TOP WOULD STILL LOOK SMOOTH. USED CONTACT CEMENT TO REATTACH MATERIAL TO SEAT PAN. WORKED WELL.THE BACK REST I BOUGHT A USED PAD [COVERED AND MOUNTED ON WOOD APPROX 6" X 10"] AND FABRACATED A MOUNTING BRKT TO STOCK REST -WELDED UP NEW REST MOUNT - DRILLED TWO 3/8 HOLES BETWEEN MATERIAL AND PLASTIC SO NEW REST CAN SLIDE INTO POSITION AND TAKEN OFF EASY. TRY TO GET PICS OR SEND ADDRESS AND I WILL MAIL HARD CPOIES. L/S
