    Default Higher Seat

    First time owner/ride of 2013 RT and my wife and I love it, First time ever owning a bike. I was wondering if they make a taller king/queen seat for these bikes. As much as my wife likes riding she is short and has the pleasure of only looking at the back of my helmet and out to the sides. It would be great if i could get her higher up behind me so she can see what I am seeing. Any ideas? Thanks

    Default TALLER SEAT

    Hi Dave here,
    Before you go out and spend a bunch of money on a different seat....
    go in the bedroom and get one or 2 of your pillows of the bed and put them
    on the back and have her sit on the seat with the pillows under her then go
    ride down the road for about 5 or 6 miles.... chances are she will be unhappy
    with the higher seat because she will most likely get the wind blast in her face
    and the wind will buffet her helmet all over. Remove one pillow and do it again
    with just the one and see how it is.
    This will tell you real fast id you want to raise that seat enough to get her head above yours.
    Good Luck
    Dave
