Holy Cow !

I gotta stop going to my dealer. I swung in, this morning, to have my RT 1200 inspected. While I was waiting for them to finish the inspection, I spotted a bike that I hadn't seen there before. It was a beige, '08 RT. At first glance, I knew something was different about it, but it took me a while to spot it. It was a factory lowered version. But, that wasn't the coolest thing about it. The seat was a one piece seat. And it was extraordinary. They said this came from the factory that way and that it was a stock BMW seat made for the lowered version of the RT. I asked them to take it off and see if it would fit on my standard RT, and, if it had, I would have ordered one on the spot. It was that cool. But, no luck. It doesn't fit on the standard models. I was so taken by this lowered RT, that the wheels started to turn in my head. But, I've already gone through four bikes in five years. And if I even mentioned another switch, my wife would make me live in the shed. But, has anyone seen these factory lowered models with the waaay cool one piece seat ?
