That look is exactly why Im building a new seat perch along with a new seat. The stock perch is WAY to tall (a ton of wasted space under the perch) to just put a lower seat in it. That seat would be less then 1 inch tall. Not exactly what any passenger would want to spend any time on. IMO

Ok, I'll bite. It has a one piece seat. What, you still have the passenger seat on your bike? BWAAHAHAH!

Why? No passenger is going to sit on the back of the one piece seat, so why bother to make one that extends back that far when you only need the rider portion?

But, just for giggles, it's already been done. No idea if it's available or not.

It's like in the movie "The right stuff". You just have to rewrite it a bit...



How are the fires down there? No where near you I hope.
At the moment the fire bug bastards haven't got to our area YET.
With the rain you've been copping lately, I hope you're keeping your head above water Graham.

.................
The idea was to make a passenger seat much lower than the OEM. It would be two seats but looking as a one piece.
I’m riding without passenger most of the time and I was looking for a flat luggage surface but with the option to take a passenger for a very short ride as I do sometimes (just to pick a son from town to home…)
This option could do that and also is better for off road riding when you move backwards.
I was looking this option before I found the Touratech rack I have now, is very easy to put on and off.

I know that this is blasphemous on a Tenere thread, but I wanted to say thanks for the comments and suggestions.

Two days ago, I sold my 1200GS. Less than an hour later, I saw this bike being sold an hour away and pounced like a hungry Jaguar!

I picked her up yesterday, she is by far the cleanest used bike I have ever purchased. It came with over $5500 in the exact farkles I would have wanted, a two inch thick folder with reciepts for every single service, warranty repair, farkle, original brochure and installation manuals for the farkles. The best part is that it only has 7500 miles and it is still under warranty until July of 2015! I can't wait to take it out and see how she looks with mud all over her!

I am not famous for keeping my bikes long, a Tenere may still be in my future...

Very nice. Looks like you won't want to farkle right away. Great price as well.

Nice bike and price, yet the flavor is different enough that we may see you back here again.
Enjoy & congratulations!

That half of an ALDI tank bag. ALDI have these sales that focus on certain markets every month. That is half the tank bag.

It also converts to backpack, carry case, etc. I'll find out what the actual manufacturer is for you if I can.

No I just though I would ride it around Naked for a while to see how it went. Works fine. I think it after was after I drowned the bike back in the days when everyone was convinced that's what caused the hard start. It started fine so I took it out for a ride to dry out its bits.

Blasphemy!!!

Good buy though. Now you will be sucked into the Kool Aid vortex and spend the rest of your life poor

Don't drink the coffee at the BMW dealer. I think they put stuff in it.
