As far as I am aware it is only the monos that are adjustable because you actually get a little bit of storage on the bips. Also isn't only the S models that are adjustable as well?

Believe me,there aint a lot of room under the pillion seat.I would'nt want to put anything under there,unless I wanted it cooking from the exhaust!
It is only the Monoposto's with the alloy subframe that are adjustable.There is plenty of room on the Bip tho,I'm 6'1'' and have plenty of room on mine.

there isn't ANY storage on my "S" - but I have found that the extra fore-aft adjustment on the seat has helped fit my 6'5" frame onto the bike. That said I didn't really have any problems on the standard settings - the extra length (ooh er) is just the icing on the cake.

I'm 6 foot and have everything set as standard with plenty of room. Having riden 450 miles in one go on it, it was great. There is defintely no storage on the S model.

Regarding storage on the 749/999S mono's , for all the good the standard tool kit would be you could allways take them out of the little bag and use it as a small storage area , toothbrush , credit cards , clean pants , what more do you need ?
