New seat and rack for GS--seat sliding question

Hi Hexheads:


I am shipping my GS to Houston by Forward air and riding it back to Seattle in early Sept. I plan to toss the rear seat and rack and replace with the following:




I am taking the seat to Rich's Custom seats



--and will ask that he extend it a bit over the rack and add gel and leather. I don't know what he will say about that, but I like to slide back during long trips.


Anyway, I don't really like the standard rough seat material. I agree it is super for weatherproofing, but I like to slid around a bit in the corners.


Am I crazy or just don't know any better? Comments or suggestion (preferred) are welcome.

Not sure how you're going to get back much further with the rider's seat because of the height difference in the framing. But hey, it'll be an interesting experiment!

$220!!!! I dunno why but that seems killer.


FWIW, Jesse makes a plate that snaps in place of the passenger seat for $95.
