Don't be an idiot all your life ... it's a forklift seat

Nothing that a sheepskin seat cover wont disguise if you have a kbasa complex

If Dave is tempted, it must indeed improve the riding experience?

If I was half as clever or obnoxious as I'm thought to be, it would really be something.

I have a door to the trunk behind the lift out seat(2 door trunk) I was thinking a seat with a little suspension that tips forward for trunk access. Claude has my rig for the leading link and a winch mount, I got a bunch of stuff I want to tweak, I would have ridden for the last 2 days but we are now having a 8 to 12" snowfall blizzard with all the extra's 30-40 mph winds and power outages and another shot of below zero F temps. Damn I love the N Hemisphere.


Please Claude remember me, snivel snivel, hurry as thomas hobbes said :"No arts; no letters; no society; and which is worst of all, continual fear, and danger of violent death: and the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short."

that seat I posted is a race trim wide with head rest. they make them for a VW and as such they have a mounting kit for it that tilts forward so the passenger can get into the back. They are not bad price wise. about 170 for the seat alone and around 150 for the rail system. I bet Claude could fab up mounts that would work with the car better and have the tilt feature.

Dave big: do you have a link to more pics of the rig? possible some close up detail stuff too

Big mother!

Why would you want to ride (an outfit) at more than 75m / 130k on a public street? And how often is it going to happen anyway?


Enjoy it, get the sucker filthy! It's too clean.

I was thinking about access to my Dnepr trunk and found there are tons of waterproof boat seats in all kinds of colors that have a tilting back on them. Some really inexpensive.

Heading into the wet city today...

I was parked next to a Sparrow! You can see the front end on left.

Perfect day for a visit to a volcano! Is that the Nisqually Glacier?

Another view of the mountain from Reflection Lakes - still snow bound.

My route took me through Enumclaw, this is the only DMC souvenir to share since the shop is closed on Sundays.
