Seat Mods

I took my seat to an auto upholstery shop. I had them trim about 2" off the back, tapering to 0" about half way to the front. Made the seat much flatter, and no more scooting forward.
My wife made a cover for some foam seat padding, and I strapped it on top. Way more comfortable now.

Here's a link to my KLR page. Scroll down about 4 images to the section on the seat mod.
