    Spenser modified the seat on my '06 ST1300 and had him stick a carbotex car heated seat element in it. I had it for 4 years and had no problems with it. It was great to flip on the heat when it was under 30 degrees outside.

    Under 30? Heck, I flip mine on around 60 degrees.

    My cheap and dirty solution to heat is a $10 drug store heating pad plugged into a $10 70 watt inverter. The heating pad is about 12" X 18", water proof, 110V, 50 watts, with a 3 level thermostat built into the cord. You can sit on it, put it inside your jacket front or back, or whatever. It gets too hot to use when set on high. It's 10 years old now and still working great. The only drawback is people look at you funny when you walk around with a white 110V cord dangling from under your jacket.
