Sheepskin seat pads.

Just a heads up for anyone looking for that little extra bit of comfort on long bike journeys. If, like me, you're too tight to bosh out for an Airhawk seat or similar, why not give one of these a try..

Motorcycle Seat pad: from Lambland UK Online

..an idea I picked up from this thread here..

Numb Arse saving seat mod.. - ::. UKGSer.com .::

I got one at the beginning of April and it really has significantly increased the amount of time I can spend in the saddle in any one sitting. 1300 miles on various trips in April without any of the sore bum-itis the GS usually gives me after a while. And all for £10 plus postage and half-an-hour sewing shoelaces onto it so I could tie it to the seat. Brilliant!

Now I appreciate having a deceased baa-lamb stapled to your pride and joy isn't going to be everyones cup of tea, but if you're looking to extend your saddle time on the cheap, and aren't phased by the idea, then the Lambland seat pad comes with the Hairy Ben seal of approval, and could well be worth a go.

Tidy that bloody garage upAfter 500 miles last weekend I might invest

Sounds worth a try at that price.What happens to it when it's wet, and is it any easier or harder to move to shift weight when you're riding?

My concern would be the rain and it staying wet, Unless it works some think a ducks back I reckon its gonna be cold and soggy after a while.

Movement is possibly a little easier. Although it depends on how securely you've attached it to the bike, and that depends on your own ingenuity as you have to make your own fitting method.All I did was sew two shoelaces onto it and then hooked them over the front of the GS seat to stop it blowing away should I stand up, so it's basically just my weight holding it on and it's yet to be a problem. There are far better ways of doing it though for a firmer fit, some of which are described in the UKGS'ers link.As you say though, for a tenner it's worth a bit of experimentation.

Not had to use it in the rain yet. So I've got that to look forward to. I'm kind of thinking that it probably wouldn't get that much more soggy and cold than your bum and seat would be anyway if it was raining that much.. And there's always the option of just taking it off.A bridge I'll cross eventually no doubt.

I thank you for the
