I do not like the gel at all. It is hard, expensive, heavy, boosts you up in the seat. I only sell it because people insist on buying it. It makes more sense to me to get a piece of foam or air pad to put under the sheepskin if you need more cushion. You can perk up your old pad by washing it. Thanks, Barb

I bought a butt pad from Barb before my Alaska trip. I rode from Asheville, NC to the Arctic Circle and back on that pad. A total of 10,282 miles in 27 days. I can only say that I would not have been able to do it with out that pad. Anyone contemplating a trip of more than 500 miles without this pad is not smart enough to ride a bike!!!

which for drz400s gel seat?

hi barb,

i have a suzuki drz400s with a gel set (which is probably the same dimensions as the standard but less height, would i be right in guessing the dualsport would be the right fitment?

thanks!

wes

That's the one. You can get away with a small if you want something cheaper. Thanks, Barb

Hey Barb, I referred Art from the Springs to you-he's vertically challenged and needs something to make the seat on his F650 more comfy, he really liked the sheepskin on my 990. Besides, I couldn't find your thread-it needed a bump!

Thumb These are awesome

These things are great. Bought one for my 01 DRZ with stock seat and rode it 2700 miles in 9 days on TAT. Easier and cheaper than aftermarket seat for sure. Washes well if it gets dirty too.

Awesome Stuff

Thought I would throw my two cents in here as well. These butt pads ROCK. I have had one for each of my three bikes over the past 3 years ( yeah, I know...bike slut ) but they are by far the best improvement in comfort I have ever experienced. My current Multistrada has the butt pad on top of a Sargent... amazing comfort. Even have one on the wifes bike.

And to top it off every single one that I have ever ordered has arrived within a week of the order... by mail no less....

Amazing service and excellent product

Thanks Barb : )

I might make another order myself. I have 2, and with the new bike on order, I should get one for it, also. It is a fantastic product.

Hi Barb,
We've got a bit of a problem around our house...


I cant get the little bastard off the the seat cover!
Any chance that you have some blemished pieces of fleece that I can buy for a Barb's Cat-Matt?!
Cheers,
Jorge
