How much of that is your personal stink? My Alaska butt pad doesn't stink. Its soaked right now due to the storms running through Indiana.

I usually saute` the sheep chops before smelting. This gets rid of the gamey taste.

How many guys actually sniff their seat?

LOL...I'm pretty sure it wasn't my "personal stink", but the pad itself. And it's not like I go around smelling seats! I was at work, and it started to rain. So I ran out, grabbed the pad off the bike.

I had sheep skin seat covers in a Wrangler a few years ago....they were great in the cooler months, but riding in 90 deg 90% humidity for awhile and sweating them up a bit. The stink would follow you around for awhile. I thought a sheep was following me the first time I stepped out of the car kept looking back to see what that musky smell was that would occassionally overtake me.

Ended up not using them in the summer months.
