slow news day... be forwarned
Your were warned!
After 1 week with the Versys I discovered the crappy seat is MUCH better if you take your wallet out of your rear pocket...I discovered this years ago but forgot. Also the seat foam settles down a bit so it gets a little better.
Still Kawa could, without any additional cost, probably less cost, make a better stock seat by making it flatter (in front) and longer (in back) for the driver. I'm pretty sure most US riders arent spending the majority of their time 2 up.
