Greetings all fellow scooter riders:
Recumbents are a hobby of mine. Here is my '06 Burgman 650 in its remarkably comfortable form.

Nice! How low is the seat? Is that a problem for vision?

Have you seen the member here with a Volvo seat on a 400?

Fellow scooterists,
Perhaps this 2nd picture will reveal a bit more. The seat is 22.5 inches high......no problem putting a foot down. The Givi shield has been cut down, enabling a clear view of the road ahead. The bars have been rotated downward to a comfortable position. The rider who fitted a Volvo seat back to his scoot gave himself wonderful back support. To add wonderful butt support, and still be able to get a foot down, the seat must be mounted much lower. This requires removal of the storage compartment and tank. The tank is now behind the seat, immediately underneath the custom rack, which also supports Givi bag mounts. I completed this project 3 years ago; it is a joy to ride. I also have numerous other bikes, both street and dirt-----an addiction for sure!
Stu.
