What I notice more than the seat height change is the fact that you slide around quite a bit on twisty roads. About 50% of the time I'll take it off if I'm going to ride something fairly twisty.

The absolute best thing about riding with a Sheepskin Buttpad is that when you pack you don't have to make room for a camp pillow. Throw the pad over some clothes or a dry jacket and you'll have all the pillow you need. Because it rides on your seat it takes up exactly no room!

I just placed a order. Been thinking about it long enough. By the way, how long does it usually take for a order to get sent out?

I bought mine at the Honda Hoot last year. I've read where others have gotten their pads in as little as 3 to 5 days to the East Coast.

For anyone interested in seeing one on a R1200GS





Despite a Corbin seat on the bike, my wife :rabia still complained of a sore butt after long rides. So a buttpad was purchased to cure it.

I ordered mine on 7/29 and received it in the mail on 8/1. Yes, for those of you looking at your calendar, that is one business day. Even though it was over the weekend, I was pretty impressed. I'm in NY.

Okay, I'll bite.


I've got an '04 GS Adventure, but I'm going to (some day ) convert it to a standard GS solo saddle. I never carry a passenger anyway, so I think I'd rather just have the rider area sheepskinned, and end up with the proper cover when I switch seats.

What do I need?

MH, I guess you need Marty's eMail! I have an idea I know what that's all about but if I'm wrong, call me.

A dualsport will fit both the solo and one piece. It just covers the driver seat. Thanks, Barb

Sheepskin Buttpad

Riding a 2000 GS. I always thought that anybody who put a silly looking pad on their seat was a weenie. Until my first experience with the dreaded monkeybutt...

After only a few hundered miles, I can tell that this thing really makes a difference. My butt is in heaven.

Another unexpected benefit is less inadvertant sliding around on the seat. There's a pretty steep downhill stretch near my house and I don't have to squeeze the tank with my knees to keep the family jewels from getting squashed.

I still haven't tried aggressive riding in the twisties yet, interesting comment above about taking it off for that. My initial thought was that there would be less sliding on the seat.

Anyway... Barb, thanks for a good deal on a good product.

Thanks, BARB. Marty Hill actually has an extra one (who knows why, he seems to have "extras" of everything, even an "extra" 12GS ) He made me a deal I can't refuse on it, so I bit.

I WILL, however, be glad to chime in with glowing reviews, should it please my butt as well as it seems to please everyone else's.


Thanks again!

27,000 miles in 4 months on my butt pad

This is me (im the short guy ) nearing the end of my North American ride on the Alaskaleather sponsored DR650 . My biggest day was south from Yellowknife where I rode 1022 miles in 24 hours and I couldnt have done it without the added comfort of the butt pad. Next year its East Canada ,USA
