SC told me it would take 1-2 weeks to get a cover sewn with a gripper top since it's a non-stocked item. I'm okay with that, but would I be better off with a smoother texture like carbon or embossed?
Hard to say, everyone is different. When I roadraced I used to use baby powder on my leathers when I had a new seat bad as I moved around on the seat a lot. On the DR I shift my weight around a lot on the road and I don't like it.
Offroad I would prefer it, though.
