Hi Barb,
What size of gel pad do you recommend for the 2007 R1200GS adventure?

Thanks

I don't recommend a gel pad at all. I think they are too heavy, expensive, boost you up in the seat too much. It just adds a layer to your existing seat that is firmer than your stock seat. Try just the sheepskin first and if it doesn't do enough, put a piece of foam under it. If you still want gel, get the large. Thanks, Barb

I have a Ducati Multistrada that I would like to put a buttpad on, but I do not need the custom fit (double price) Multistrada specific one. Which generic size unit would you recommend? I would rather get the generic so I can use it on other bikes as well. Thanks in advance for the guidance, I will be buying one shortly.

A Big Thanks

On Thursday, the 26th, I order a buttpad from Barb -- Well, today is Monday, the 30th and the pad arrived -- ooo wee, if only every business reacted as quickly --

Thank you ma'am!

I'd use a medium or a pillion one on that seat. The pillion one is about the exact shape. Thanks, Barb

The reason I make the MS pad specific is because the seat is such a pain to remove. The pillion one is the best generic fit. Thanks, Barb

Barb,

I was thinking of getting one of these for my Honda CRF230L. The smaller dual-sport size seems kind of big for my seat, so I was thinking of the 12"X16" pad like on the KLX in this pic. What do you recommend for the smaller dual-sport bikes?

The small 12X16 will work just fine. Remember to put the bike type so I put the clips closer together. Thanks, Barb

Hi Barb!

I can't find the Tracking Number on my invoice from my purchase last Friday. Order #26998. The neigbor has a new puppy and I need to make sure I find the package before it does!

I was just dropping by to tell you I'm liking my buttpad very much. Then I saw this post right above mine and it cracked me up.
Good one Donnie You're thinking ahead.

Thanks for a great product Barb.

I would like to get a Gel Buttpad and or sheep skin pad for my 2007 BMW Xmoto, what do you suggest I buy ?, the seat is as hard as a rock after 15 minutes. I can sit flat footed on it, so a rise in height would not be a problem.

Black in color.

Thank you
Steve
