This is because the seat is pretty narrow in the front and about 11" wide at the widest, however maybe the medium at 15" wide would do better by overlapping the sides some. Which do you think would work best? Not sure if you've had the Touratech request before. Should I order a nose strap? Lastly, is the discount still on? I started to order, but canceled when I didn't see the box for the "deadsheep." Also, thought I'd better get your advise on size first, discount or not. I've am going to try and attach a photo to give you some idea of what the seat looks like. I recently went on a 150 mile charity event with over 400 m/c riders (the vast majority HD guys) called the Run for the Border, from Wenatchee to Oroville, WA. (my hometown) and have to admit my backside was starting to feel the road because we had only one stop. Gary.



I own the exact same seat on my 97 1100 GS. A small or medium will not work. If you don't want the dualsport, get a pillion one. In the special instructions put "Touratech GS seat like Barb's" and I'll know what to do. I would add a nose strap if you stand on your pegs.
The word deadsheep goes in the promotion code box when you are checking out on the shopping cart. Thanks, Barb

Heard great reviews on this one. Just ordered a Medium for my 1200GS, hope it's as comfy as it looks.

Thanks Barb.

Extra strap?

Barb,

I'm ordering a Dualsport Full Saddle to use on both my KLR 650 and my Super Sherpa, should I just order an extra strap? Thanks!

Hi Barb,
I just finished riding an Iron Butt SaddleSore 1000. A personal distance record for myself... 1,035 miles in one day.
I purchased one of your sheepskin buttpads just for this ride.
It was so good I felt like I was cheating. Shouldn't my butt be sore after such a ride? 18 hours of riding and I felt good to go the next day.
WOW! It worked great. Thanks for making such a wonderful product.
Cheers,
Mark

Yes. The clips may be a bit wide for the Sherpa though. How wide is the seat?. Thanks, Barb

It's about 10 1/4 inches wide. In general it is an inch shorter and an inch narrower than the KLR and WAAAAY less comfortable. Thanks

Got it!

Well my butt pad showed up Thurs just before leaving for the long weekend, but early enough to get it installed before I left.

I did about 25 miles of single track on Sat and it worked great. Never in the way, didn't get bunched up while sliding around on the seat and was a god send when it came to my tailbone.

I'll post up a couple pictures tonight.

Thanks to everyone at Alaska Leather.

Got my buttpad yesterday

12 days and it got past the watchfull eyes at the border.
Light colour looks great with the bike.
I don't think "install" is quite the right term, but I got it on the bike in 30 seconds and it fits great.
Proof of the pudding will be in the sitting.......................I will get my wife to give a report once we test it.

Thanks Barb

cheers

Barb,

I have the low, and very hard and uncomfortable Corbin seat on my 1200gs. I like the fact that I can touch both feet so I keep it on even though it was designed for the Inquisition. Will the medium fit?

F650 GS Thumper

Barb, I have an F650 GS (Thumper) and am thinking of ordering a buttpad.. According to the fit chart, I should be getting a deluxe Medium..

I also read that certain pads should have a strap added if you stand on the pegs often.. (doing a fair amount of Non paved and stand up often enough) I will be doing the Trans Lab this June..

Should I consider adding the strap to a medium for my bike.. and how do I specify on the order?

Thanks

Hey you, haven't talked to you since Ouray. Yep, medium should fit. A pillion type one would be a better shape for the Corbin. I may have to cut it wider. What is the width and length of seat? Follow the contour through the bucket. Thanks! Barb
