So my girl hates riding on the back unless I'm doing 140. The seat is like a 2X4 and it positions her much too far back from me making it difficult to stay cozy. What to do? Well with a littl ehlp from some fellow BCSB'ers and some foam shaping and recovering by Trim up Auto in Richmond we were able to extend the base plate 3 inches forward with a 1/4" aluminum plate and add about 1/2" of softwer foam. Not the sleakest thing on the bike, but then again anything for my girl.
