Why are your RF days over? I have my 21 month old son in it and although no leg room-he manage and just leaves them bent.. The only issue I have is the lower buckle part (the edges of the clips) kind of press into his thighs and not sure how I can fix that.

(I have the Boulevard 65 for Canada)

Oh she is still rf'ing, just not in the BV. She's now been moved to a Radian XT as her main seat. The BV in my new car was very upright and she had no leg room at all. It was a royal PITA to get her into the seat and get her buckled just to have her all scrunched up in it.

I have Paisley too. Unfortunately, my very short legged 25mo old is completely out of room (in our new car). It's now sitting in my living room as a nice recliner. I will be gifting it to my oldest dd for her baby due in less than 2 weeks. I do not like the BV as a FF seat and since our rf'ing days are over (in the BV) there is no need for me to keep it. :(

Why don't you like it FF, am I missing something? I have mine installed FF and we love it!!!

Both my boys have complained that it hurt their back. And in order for the harness to be 'at or above' their shoulders, the head wings end up almost pointless as they are not surrounding their head.

Here is my little 4.5yr old just sitting in the house. In one pic, the harness is at his shoulders (he's almost over, but he's actually even with it) and in the next, I moved the head wings up one notch which is where we'd have them if he were riding in it. I prefer position #1, but there are too many times when it looks like the harness is below his shoulders rather than even.

And just for fun comparison, here is his twin brother in the tallest harness position...in the house, he is even with the top harness slot...in the car he has outgrown it.

Kayskidz, does your cover slip down over the harness a little bit? I noticed on my blvd70 with either cover that the harness slot in the shell is always 1/2" above where it is in the cover.
I actually really like it ff, but it installs so upright in the first position that ds has head slump so I usually have to use the second position.
