    jk. I was trying to figured out a way to explain it yesterday. The only thing I can relate it to is how a 3 ton picker kind of unfolds on the back of a 1 ton truck. Basically an arm that swings out and drops the seat down to ground level, if that's ones choice of height but would be able to stop before that level. With a simple wired toggle switch. And would all work with a 12volt ram.

    I love this post. I am a C6/7 quad for 20 years now. I have modified a Honda Odyssey, Honda Pilot, and then moved to the RZR in '08. what a blast to ride. Much easier to get into. I built a mobile platform to make it a straight transfer. I added suspension seats and 5 point harnesses. Once strapped in it is such a rush to ride the mountains of Eastern Ohio. The bike is very safe. I owned it a month and rolled it several times down the side of a mountain. It was completely rebuilt from new frame up. Actually it only bent the aframe tab for the rear wheel and the dealer insisted on the new frame. But they made it like new again and I did not get a scratch. I climbed right back on my steel horse without hesitation. I built my own hand controls and they work excellent. I love this bike so much I'm actually looking to upgrade to the 2012 model. So my '08 may be for sale soon. Ready to ride.

    That is awesome Ed. Makes me really miss my Rhino and RZR.

    I've since switched hobbies and now spend all of my extra coins autocrossing my Miata.

    Here are a couple pics of the controls and the platform. Just mounted the brake master cylinder under the seat and shortened the throttle cable. It's a push forward for brake pull back for gas system. No peddles to bang my feet off of. We ride in some pretty agressive areas.
