    Barb,
    Great meeting you at Lima, even if it was at the VERY last minute. The ride home was cushy, thank you very much!

    I don't know how I missed the last two posts, sorry about the late reply.

    Strom is a medium and SVS is a pillion type 1. Thanks again everyone! Barb

    Hi Barb,

    Well, I finally gave in and just placed an order for a black one for my KLR. Looking forward to it arriving. Thanks again.

    Ordered a dual sport sheep skin on Saturday and it arrived Monday. Great quality and fits well. Will see how it works on my ride to New Mexico and Ouray.

    I actually bought the medium for the SVS. Took it out for 200 miles yesterday, works great. Shit load cheaper than an after market seat, too.

    My friend laughed until he sat on it. Now he wants one for his Buell.

    I guess getting "sheeped" in Lima is better than getting "fleeced" Thanks, Barb

    How much do these raise the seat height?

    Actually, quite a bit.

    .5 to .75 inch would probably be the norm.

    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 :rolleyes ) 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? :ear
