Just got back from Ecuador / Galapagos and I thought, being it's April 1st, you all might appreciate the seat on this unique "species". Now people are all about lower seats, or cafe style seats or comfy touring seats, but I think this guy is onto something. I have a feeling this trend will soon be appearing north and south of the equator.

In fact the whole bike ("ShineRay" is I think the brand) has been tastefully customized:

Style aside, riding a bike in Quito, Ecuador is not for the faint of heart. Cobblestones, potholes, steep hills, wet and rainy for half the year, pedestrians (lots of tourists and locals), constant stop and go traffic. You get the idea. 125cc motard style bikes were the rule although I did see an R1 (!) and two Adv-Touresque BMWs pass by (the riders wearing Aerostich suits gave them away as gringoes to me). The locals favored helmets, boots and rain ponchos. I saw not a single accident.

The seat image is a bit less obtrusive than other alternatives:

I've seen that picture a bunch of times...
I think it might be Malaysia.
