Well I am definitely concerned about steering geometry and handling. Not looking for another straight line bike. Will shaving the seat significantly impact the bike due to relocating my fat lower?

Depends, I know when I shaved mine I feel lower in the seat, I can tuck tighter to the tank, and believe it or not it made my confidence go up a little. I feel like I am more part of the bike as opposed to just riding it.

Define fat ? Is you suspension set up for your weight? Shave the seat, and dial in your suspension, it will be like riding a new bike.
