Has anyone ever seen an R3 with the whole tail section removed including the rear seat so that all that is left is the single seat? I have a single seat conversion but I have a muscle disability that causes a nightmare situation for me when I need to get on or off. Getting on isn't as bad as getting off, but it is nearly impossible for me to get my leg over the raised tail section and I end up having to drag my leg over the riders seat and even one time I dropped the bike on myself with the stand down even.
Thought maybe there was a fiberglass kit or something out there that allows someone to remove that section. I have a lowering kit on there already for 2" reduction but it doesn't help.

Have you tried getting on by putting your left leg on the left footpeg and then stepping over, instead of swinging your leg over from the ground.

That tends to work well for my friends that ride tall bikes.
