Default Low Rider seat?

So, anyone try the low rider seat on the XC or XR?
I love sitting as far down into the chasis as possible.
Also, is that low rider seat, just lower of the driver? or the passenger also?

It drops you 1" and moves you fwd about 1". The drop is for the passenger too.

If you want to sit really low look at the Vision 8-Ball; it sits you almost 3" lower than the Cross bikes. Note that I haven't measured with a ruler but that's what it looks like comparing the 2 by hand. It gives you a larger built-in backrest, has a wide driver/passenger and the passenger seat has a lip on the back.

There is also a 1" lowering kit that was on a demo bike at Arlen Ness in Dublin, CA. It lowers the bike but you still get the full 4" suspension travel. For another option.

I don't really need the bike lower. Just like sitting inside the chasis. Wonder how comfy/cushin that low rider seat is...

I test drove a vision 8 ball. That was a lot of fun! That's the only vision I could ride. I love how low it was...

There's 1" less foam than the standard seat; that probably subtracts from the "comfy/cushin".
