This is a very good product for long rides , especialy for your passager,if you know what I mean. It will help keep you cool in the heat of summer and also butt dry. Do not leave it sit on the seat in the sun for any length of time when the bike is parked , it will heat up and stay hot for quite awhile,vise versa in the cold. Overall its a good product.
I was skeptacle at first but took it on a 1100 mi. weekend ride and was able to ride without any discomfort at all. was able to ride longer between stops, and less sweat. the pad did not bunch or shift at all, I didn't even have to strap it down.
I was hoping to get some additional comfort for longer rides. This seat cover helps go further before needing a break, but isn't as thick and cushy as I expected it to be. The synthetic sheepskin helps when it's hot to not stick to the seat as much. However, using this seat cover left me feeling a little less "connected" to the bike than without it. It's a trade-off you have to live with unless you spend the additional for an aftermarket seat, which may be my next upgrade.
I bought an extra large and a lage gel pad for my wife and I to use on a Goldwing. The stock Goldwing seat is a little hard and tends to be unconfortable after a couple of hours of saddle time. We were hoping the gel pads would extend the time before we started to feel sore, but, frankly neither of us can tell the difference with or without the gel pad.
