I can't wait to get a solo seat for the bike. It's a PITA taking the seat off every time I pull over somewhere and want to lock the helmet to the bike. With my ZX6R I could hold the helmet in one hand and remove the seat with the other. Now I have to set the helmet on the ground, take the seat off, set the seat on the ground, then fight with the helmet hook to get the helmet on and then pick the seat up and put it back on. I have been mening to bend the hook up a little bit so it would be easier to put my helmet on. But I only seem to remember when i'm somewhere about to stow it. I don't ride anyone with me so I never had a back seat on my Ninja. I kept the racing cowl back there instead. It worked out better due to the fact that that was my storeage area. I miss that. On my old bike my storage area was big enough to put a 20 oz coke and maybe some snacks. On the Stryker there is no storage area. And I don't like the look of saddle bags or those boxes.
