    I have had nothing but terrible experience with Ride Now in this area. Nash Motorsports is better but unable to do timely repairs. Maybe if you explain that you are on the road they might squeeze...

    The seat height is seven-tenths of an inch lower than previous RTs. Don't know if that's the entire reason to state "lower COG". But, I guess that is what they are referring to..... Jim
