Greetings from the Land of Lincoln and the Badger State New Member

Rode conventional motorcycles from 1966 till 2008. Quite a feat since I never got older than 19.
In 2008 I sold my Valkyrie Interstate as I didn't trust my self on 2 wheels any more.

My main passion is snowmobiling, but I also ATV. Woods riding is O.K. until you stop, bugs seem to have a passion for the way I taste.

I bought my 2013 RT LMTD SE5. having never even sat on one let alone driven one. Found it on EBAY in PA.

Has 16k on it and a local CANAM dealer in IL went through it yesterday and said everything checked out good.

I'm 6'2" and quickly found out the stock seat isn't very comfortable so am working on that.

Looking forward to information on this site.

Welcome. The Driver's butt-stop is two inches further back on the Comfort Seat, which will give you more leg room.

I noticed that and had been doing research on the Corbin, Ultimate, and the Russell Day

I found a COMFORT with matching passenger backrest brand new on the INET that I passed over a few times because the price was so low. Finally read and reread all the fine print and it does not say covers only but does say Kit.

Any how it is on order so will see what shows up. In the mean time I built a temporary pad with cover to allow me to sit on the hump.. Looks weird sitting there but when I'm riding you don't see it and supports me fine, straightens my legs out etc.

Here are picts with and without me on it,

I have made a 2" pad to move me forward when my wife rides along.

Well the CAN AM Comfort arrived and I put it on. Not good enough for met so it is listed for sale with the matching backrest.Just finished putting a wrap on the RT and like it other than I'm not pleased with my installation. Like a fine painting you can't look at it close up.

Here is one pictSPYDER WIT PATRIOT DECALS (6).jpg
