    We are vendors at the BMW MOA rally in Sedalia, MO July 18-22. Stop by and see us! The booth is indoors and air conditioned (so they say). Thanks, Barb

    Good luck with the heat in Sedalia, with it being that hot, I don't imagine any air conditioned will be able to keep up with that many doors being opened and a building like that.

    Barb,
    So sorry I missed meeting you while I was in AK. Amazing place you live in and I will definitely be back! I was blown away by Denali Nat'l Park.
    Thanks for organizing the sheepskins for my lil car. I look forward to receiving them and will share my thoughts and photos.
    Still love my buttpads on my GS. Especially the spotted one:D
    Thanks!
    Great personal service!

    Hey Barb,

    Love my sheepskin on my F800 GS....almost perfect. Would i be able to fit an Airhawk cushion under the sheepskin? Wondering if that would work....does anybody do this that you know of?

    Thanks for the great product.

    That is the most popular sheepskin accessory-an airhawk. I would use anything that makes you more comfy. Thanks! Barb

    Hi Barb. Canadian KLR-ista here. Looks like my old bum needs one of your pads. So many rave reviews have a way of convincing a man (not to mention hot weather and a cheap Kawi vinyl seat...)

    I gather I need the DS model and probably the sheared version. But I am confused why the "natural" is $30 more than the dyed sheared. Is it better quality or something?

    Sorry if you have answered before. Read the first 10 pages and the last 5, but didn't see anything.

    Cheers
    Ben

    Barb,

    I will be ordering another pad. I replaced my stock seat with an RDL. Once I get the bike back out of the shop after my CDR ride I will be putting in a request for a custom size. I am debating if I want the sheared vs. long. I expect that I will be looking for a natural color one.

    I will send you a PM when I have the RDL seat measured.

    Naturals cost me more the dyed. They are tanned in smaller lots and not available in the larger dyed quantities. I think you can cover a lot of ugly with dye so the sorting process is easier for the tannery. No worries, the dyed may be going up in price too! I'll know what the next batch brings. Thanks, Barb

    Hi Barb, you make a great quality product! I just bought a 2011 G650GS. I have the stock seat in the first picture but am thinking someday I will replace it with the tall seat in the second picture. Would you have a full length buttpad that would fit both seats?

    Great!
    My girlfried toio says it's really comfortable on long distances.
    I love it in short distances too! :D

    Do you think it's safe to wash it in the washing machine? Cold water, and 15 minutes?
    Thank a lot
