I like the DIY thing as momma says she is just fine. As for the leg room, I am all for it at 5'17" where do i put em. I had to get rid of the stock engine savers and get the 98, 99 ones to save my shins. I rode a friends (who knows less then I) 95 SE and it was fine, and he got the numb butt on mine too, do the diff models have better seats? I got the bike with a new in the box seat and an ole p.o.s. I can recover. I tried the beads and couldnt get used to em.
