An Idea for Honda

Here is something for Honda to consider.
I see post about the saddles not fitting some rider when they buy a new bike.
Why not make several seats available.
One for tall lightweight riders
one for tall heaver riders'
one for shorter lightweight riders
one for shorter heaver riders. and maybe acouple seat for the in between size riders.
With what a new wing cost. the least they could do is provide a seat that would work for the rider.
Just an idea.
I would rather have a comfortable seat then some of the whiz bang stuff they are putting on the new wings.Just an idea from a GRUMPY OLD GUY!!!!

Nice thought ole grumpy one but where does it end??

I don't like the way the bars feel. I think they should offer different rise bars.

I don't like that type of interface, they should offer multiple choices of interfaces

On and on and on.

When the 1500 was a high dollar machine (new), there was one seat choice. When folks didn't like the seat, they bought aftermarket.

Just an Ole Fossil's opinion back at you pal

You can't please everyone.

I see what you are saying Bill.
But I see a lot more wings with after market seats that a lot of the other stuff. Just saying.

Hey guys, after market products fill niches that are not robust enough for the big brands to offer themselves and stay profitable. So I think you need to give the big and little guys a break on this. They each do their part. JMHO

It's just a matter of perspective - try riding a 10 speed bike for a mile then get on your wing - Now imagine the sound of a hot iron being dipped into cool water.
I have never complained about the seat (on the wing)

Actually HD has seats available for people of different sizes and shapes, they have seats for tall and short riders. Honda could offer 2 choices.
