That was kind of my idea. I should have researched it more, as I thought there would be a way to not have the seat attached all the time. Should be able to figure something out but kind of annoyed with Polaris.Wow that's strange I have two 2010 550 touring. one has the large Polaris lock and ride cargo box. the other has the small flat box it gives a large flat deck. I love the longer wheelbase of the touring machine stable and comfortable. It seems as though Polaris is putting more emphasis on its side by side accessories.
