1. Shave down the steep shelf ridge near the back. It is right where I usually sit for cruising rides. Very ouchy.
2. Extend the width of the seat, 1/2 - 2/3rds back. The nose will remain narrow so I can scoot forward and put a foot down when stopping.
3. Remove another 1/2" on the overall height of the seat and overlay a 1/2" of medical foam for a bit softer cushioning.
The former fork seepage has been resolved and the carb seems fine (for now). I hope it stays that way.
The most difficult part of returning to riding is getting on and off the bike. I can't just swing a leg over haphazardly. And my ab muscles REALLY need re-educating! Lots of crunches coming up!
