Burgman 650.

There's a guy that parks one near where I work.
I often see it when walking to lunch.

The bike (scooter) has a Corbin seat.

It is, bar none, the most ginormously fucking huge monstrosity of a seat that I have ever seen.

I really don't think I'm being too far off when I say that the seat is 50% of the size of the scooter.

Ah, Corbin has the dimensions on-line.
Burgman
Standard seating: 16.5" wide x 15" long
Passenger: 16.5" wide x 15" long
Rider Seat height: 30.5"


Trying to think of a large bike, I randomly select an
FJR1300
Rider seating: 13" wide x 14.5" long x 6"
Approx. seat height: 31.5"
Smuggler Capacity: Approx. 11.5 Liters

For our relatively puny
919,
Rider seating: 13" wide x 15.5" deep
Passenger: 11" wide x 9" deep
Approx seat height: 32"

The scooter seat is 3.5" wider than an FJR 1300... my eyes aren't lying.
The passenger portion of the scooter is 5.5" wider than the 919 !

Yeah I'd call it a bench seat, but under that monster you can stow 2 pizzas and a 12 pack.

There are folks out there who cultish-ly follow and love the Burgman. I think that's really, really strange!
