    Low seat??

    My 2013 TTSE has an adjustable seat and being a bit of a short ar5e, I'm grateful for it. I've seen a number of 'Low seats' for sale but these appear to be the standard adjustable seat. Is there a lower sculptured seat for the TT??

    There is only 1 version of the low seat as far as I know, and it was only used on the US version.

    Cheers for this, much appreciated. Decision time, buy the low seat or lower the suspension.....

    I bought a Heated Low Seat for the Winter - the plan being that the extra Inch will help
    when stopping on wet / slippery surfaces, being able to "Flat Foot" easier,
    but I do find the lower position a little more uncomortable on my aging knees -
    which have to be bent that little bit more with feet on the pegs !

    If you're passing through South Birmingham anytime and wanted to try my Low Seat,
    before committing to buy, you'd be welcome to !

    Cheers  :821:

    It's not too easy on old knees. Yeah, I know from experience, but the Trophy isn't the only one, my K1600GTL with a low seat was just as rough on the old knees. :745:

    Of all the places, in all of the world........We have friends who lived in New Braunfels. They've now moved to Schertz where we visited last year. We had a fantastic afternoon of live music at Gruehne barn one Sunday and I'd love to get over there again. A great part of the world!
