new seat cover

Picked up this custom fitted seat cover that is supposed to allow a cooling breeze between the seat and your butt. My buddies have them on their CRF's and ntice an improvement so as it is 39 C here today it is a good opportunity to see if works.
Also claims to give a cushioning effect due to the honey comb structure.

At 40.00 it is worth finding out - non fitted universal models are cheaper but look a bit sloppy

Probably something that Alaska Jeff will not need!

Hogshead, how did it feel on your ride yesterday. I know it's no Airhawk, but did it make any noticable difference?

Hoghead I don't think you got ripped. I presume you got yours from either Hat Yai or Chiang Rai saddlebags. I've looked at the cheapies available here in Chiang Mai, and I think you get what you pay for.And as you said they are fitted for the seat not a one size fits all. I've just come back from riding in Cambodia and was very happy with mine, especially with the Air Hawk underneath the seat cover. Just my two satangs worth!

fit

Purificator did the $10.00 cover from e bay fit the seat of your V? I realize it is not a custom fit pad.

I figured it out!! A good day is when you can't see through your visor or windshield b/c of the bug splatter!!!!

It is a Hat Yai from Chiang Rai Saddlebags
690 THB for the cover
about 860 to EMS to the States

Marty will not export as he has been dicked around by time wasters, but I am going there on Tuesday and picking one up for another forum member

It is great and money well spent

BTW I live in Mae Rim and you can see me on GT-Rider
