Do you have one size that I can use on both my R1150GS Adventure and my R1200GS?

buttpads

I've got two of Barb's Alaska Butt pads. One on the V-Strom and one on the Wee Strom. I recommend them highly and just because it is from Barb. Yes, she is a babe i.e. a wonderful person and great to do business with and attractive too. Now if that makes your buttpad more comfy, cool.

Sometimes they smell like a wet dog but it shouldn't be too offensive-if it is, I need to know because that's a tanning problem. Don't put in on if going out in a torrential downpour. Barb

Get a medium, it'll fit on both (although not as good on the Adventure). Put a note to add an extra strap. Barb

I got caught in a killer storm coming back from Oregon a couple months back. At first I took the pad off, not wanting it to get soaked, but I just couldn't handle riding without it. Even underneath me it got pretty soaked (I was soaked to the bone through my supposedly waterproof suit)

Got home and took it upstairs to drip dry in my bathroom. No smell, looks great, still fluffy.

Much <3 for the sheepskin.
