Seat covers?

I really like the stock seat. I like the type of padding and the shape. I have had seats in the past on cruiser type bikes that locked you into one position and found on long rides they found some magical pressure point to press somewhere along the way so I prefer the UJM type bench seats because you can shift around. I also find it handy when you want to throw more weight over to one side.

So by and large I like the seat and have done about 3 hours on it happily .. the only thing I dont like is that somewhat rubber textured cover. Blech ... its hard to slide around especially in Arizona 112 degree days when your arse is stock to the rubber cover. Anyone make decent after market cover.

Go on ebay and punch in motorcycle 3d mesh seat covers. I havn't used one but everybody on here likes 'em. They are $4.00 to $20.00 and are stretchy universal fit. Cheap enough to toss if you don't like.

2014 DL1000 - Sold
2010 Triumph Scrambler- Sold
2014 KLR650 - Sold
2017 Honda CRF250L - current
2016 Honda VFR1200X - current

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

I will second the recommendation for the Sit N Fly cover. It has really helped with comfort in general and especially in the heat. I find it gives some airflow under my butt and adds a little cushioning as well. $25 well spent.

You may want to try a Sheepy Hollow sheepskin SEAT PAD I just bought one and like the result.

sometime in the 70's my grandmother made me a full seat cover of natural colored sheeps wool. It had elastic around the bottom so it fit the seat nicely and was installed on a GS400. Off white fuzzy seat cover on a Red GS .... It was pimp a licous!!
