I feel like the whole point in having a GoPed is *not* to have a seat, tho... supposed to be more of a Segway-ish chariot-like feel. I would have opted for the GTR46i (Trail Ripper) if it were my money, tho. See here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW1HpzNlz9M
That C.I.D.L.I. suspension is what makes both the Riot and the Trail Ripper. Amazing innovation by GoPed... so maybe they're worth $700 each, but not much more than that.
