Removed the Pillion Pad

As I mostly ride solo, I decided to follow the trend and remove my pillion seat.

Easily done, just a hex key and a 10mm socket. I used auto trim buttons to cover the holes for a nice clean look. They're easily removable when I want to fit the bike for two people.

Cheers

Jim

I know some people that like to keep the pad just so the rear end looks a bit busy although they never have a rear passenger

Funny to see reasons people have, but yours is normal, I would do the same.
