Judy does 99% of the driving making me the passenger. She is also the taller of the two of us. The seating position on our GL1500 was such that I could see over the top of her helmet and I liked it. I could see traffic and signs very well. Honda in its wisdom has changed that and I now see the back of her helmet. Hal in his wisdom (and sales) has seen to it that I can no longer afford a custom seat. Is there any way that I gain an 1" or two in the passenger seat compartment. Will the stock seat accept a little more foam? Anyone else have this problem and how have you solved it - short of a custom seat?
