Thread: Seat Optons R850R

    Seat Optons R850R

    I'd like to replace my 2 piece seat with somethin a bit more conventionally designed. The rider portion has me quite locked in with no wiggle room. While the passenger seat is quite long and unused. I need to keep the low riding position and be able to stretch out a bit. Would a seat from another BMW with better ergonomics fit? Or other suggestions please?

    I like the look and design of the R1100S seat does anyone know or think the pan would or could be adapted??

    Somebody did some carving on my 850 seat foam, but so far it works well for me...even with my short legs. Someone on ADV has an 1100 that they added a rear mount plat off of a GS in place of the rear seat. Looks interesting. I'm hoping to hear from said person as I may want to try that too.
    Ride fast, take chances.
