It is not by any means a sudden iron butt saddle but, a very welcome improvement. I'll get a pic when I can & also another opinion after my wife has a chance to chime in after a 2-up ride. As an added bonus, it also fits just fine on my Triumph seat too & is easy enough to move from one bike to the other.
+1. I still have the sheepskin cover from Barb that was on my 1150, before that it was on my KLR, it now resides on my 800. It DEFINITLEY helps stave off the dreaded monkey butt, and comes off in 3 seconds if it starts to rain.
