    Heres another angle. The single seat raises the seat height by an inch, but its alot narrower and it now feels like a true dirt bike. I can shift my weight better from side to side and forward. It also lengthens the seat to peg distance, so my knees are lot more comfy. Don't feel like a catcher any more. The handlebars position also improves with this change.

    S. Meyers in Germany. They had it in stock. I originally ordered the seat from Seibenrock, but they were on backorder for 3 months before, I decided I didn't want to wait anymore. The Seibenrock seat is more expensive but higher quality in construction from what I hear.

    I wasn't impressed with the quality of the siebenrock GS solo seat that I got a few years ago. The vinyl was very cheap feeling, the foam was too soft so I was basically sitting on the seatpan, it was shaped incorrectly to fit the tank and left big gaps. I sent it back.
