After a pretty heavy butt cheek battering in Spain, and especially on the last two days either side of the ferry, I decided to try a new sheepskin approach.
One of the guys we chatted with on the quay at Santander and on the ferry, and his wife, two-up on a KLX1000 Kawasaki, said they had bought sheepskins off eBay from a company in Yorkshire. They looked a lot shaggier than the Alaska Leather ones that I bought for Claire and me way back in 2004.
So I bought one. The jury is out. It is a rectangle, with an anti-slip underside and a thick elastic to pass under the seat. I think my arse cheeks need to recover before I can feel any benefit.
The suppliers are www.sheepskinseats.net and are available via eBay as well as direct.
