In Qld we can get cheaper rego if the bike is converted to a one seater. Apparently the seat needs to be less than 50cm long (as well as rear footpegs removed). I haven't been able to find any aftermarket seats that fit the bill. Has anyone done this? I'd be interested in how you tackled it. Ie: found an aftermarket seat, or how you modded the stock seat.

I quite often find myself sitting on the back seat on a longer ride just to let my legs stretch a little. You'd lose that with a rear cowl. Not sure it's really worth it?

Not everyone needs to move back to stretch their legs.

Heh, and I'm a shortie anyway. :) I did look at the cowlings but I'm not sure they meet the requirements for single seat. The motor vehicle department can be picky about this stuff. It has to do with insurance, so they want to make sure you don't ever put an extra person on the bike.

It might if you do a little surgery and make it a permanent part of the seat.

Yeah, I think I'll have to hack on the seat itself. Probably shave off all the foam at the back and recover it. I'd prefer a commercial single seat as it would look better, but if one isn't available.. *shrug*

Although I do like cowlings. :)
