How tall are you? I'm 6'2, with powered seat and sunroof I have less than an inch of headroom, there's no way I can fit with a helmet on. I think manual seat gives about an extra 1/2 to 1", sunroof delete might work for you however. I'll be removing the headliner and putting in a delete panel in the spring I can let you know how much space was gained.
