First test ride

My local Kawasaki dealership just opened and had a 2014 650 versys ready for a test ride. I took it out for about an hour and love it. Pretty sure I will buy one in the next week or so. The only thing I found that I didn't like was I found that I slid forward on the seat. At the back of the seat I was comfortable but found that the angle of the seat caused me to slide forward. Is there a way to adjust the seat to stop this sliding.

alot of people do a mod of raising the mount that the front tab of the seat goes into... i find it easy to just grip it with my legs and that keeps me back in place... but im also 6'2 and have alot of leg
