You only have to unbolt it once. There is a quick release on each side and you leave the strap underneath. Dualsport is the size or you can use a pillion type 1 for the driver seat. Prices go from $34.95-$69.95, shipping is $6.00. Thanks, Barb

Barb,
Just wanted to thank you again for that excellent "Mad Cow" cover you donated to the WARPED event. I got the new one wich fits and love it. Not been on a long ride yet, but Im sure it will be a great addition to the bike, thanks to you!

This week has been hectic...but I will have the mad cow (below) on its way back home!

I went for my first ride today with the dual sport buttpad and also the boot insoles. It's just crazy good! Significant improvement on the street, though I still have some issues with my bomber shorts after 30 mins or so. I need to ditch them.

Surprisingly, the off-road improvement was the greatest for me. Less impacts to my feet/legs via the insoles, and sitting/cornering over trail trash is so plush it's scary. Went so much faster today, my license plate got eaten by the rear tire LOL.

Hey Barb

Just wanted to let you know how fantastic my buttpad is working out on my DL650! I was worried that it would be too hot here in AZ but it really keeps the seat cool and comfy (as opposed to boiling hot and sticky ).

Barb - Excellent butt pad once again! I've had one on my K1200LT for 2 years now and just put a new one on my R1200GS. Both work great. Don't think I could ride without them any more...
Thanks

Another satisfied customer here. I received mine maybe 6 weeks ago. It makes a difference fer sure! The aft end of my gas tank (Kaw. ZR-7S) is rounded, so I trimmed my wool (hey now!) so the front of the pad follows the seat front's contours (i.e. the front of the pad is now concave if viewed from above).

I haven't read this whole thread, so maybe others trim as well. If not, what I did: remove the seat, mount the pad in the aft-most desired position (there was then a inch or so overlapping the front of the seat), flipped the seat over, traced the front of the seat onto the back of the pad using a Sharpie, then trimmed with sharp scissors. Viola! Looks like it was custom made for my seat.

Today I took my seat off to use as a pillow, and I took a nap in the parking lot

Then the qwads started doing donuts and woke me up

Bought the saddle pad for my BMW and I have one trip of 300 KM on it. I think this is a wise investment on my part. I bought the sheep skin insoles and wore them today. Sure feel good.

Service is fast, shipping is fast. Shipping to Canada is a bit funky but it will be OK I think. Recommend this vendor.

Wee strom saddle question

Hi Barb-
I was curious if you make a pocket for a gel insert in your medium pad that would fit my Weestrom. I'm sure the pad is plenty comfortable on it's own, but I need to build up the height of the dish a bit. I'm 6'1" and having my knees flexed that far for 200 miles wasn't too cool yesterday. I figure a gel pad like the Saddlemen Rawgel wouldn't absorb water and might buy me an inch or so. Unless, of course, you already make something like that.
Cheers----Chris

No pocket, but you can put the gel under the pad. The strap will hold it down. I've seen them put on top of airhawks, beads, extra foam. Whatever it takes to make your butt happy. Thanks, Barb

Which passenger pad for R1150GS with Rocky Meyer seat?

Hi Barb

I've put 12,000 on the buttpad you fitted to my GS in your shop last August and it is great. Now I want one for the pillion for my wife, but I seem to remember that this Rocky Meyer seat is slightly oversize. Should I order the Pillion 2 or what?

John
