Seems to be something to pull, but it's doesn't pull easily. Figured I'd ask and show my ignorance before I risked pulling and breaking something...

It's one of those safety releases a person would pull to open the seat in case he was locked inside, cars have them too.

Shame,
I really liked some of those other secret possibilities, especially the parachute and the passenger eject ideas.

Well, I'm running an Xmoto, so no enduros for me... But I might need it when I go two-up with the Mrs

What I meant was that if its bolted, what's the purpose of the "quick release" feature...

I originally was hoping it was some sort of "smarter than me" helmet lock
