Home-made Sheepskin Seat Cover

Well, I wish I had seen spriddle's post about the sheepskin seat covers before I had ordered the sheepskin rug from sportsmanparadise.com, but, neverless, I like the way this turned out after I cut it down, punched some holes in it with a leather punch, and laced it to some tie-wraps I mounted under the edge of the seat. After I get my Pro-Tac backrest next week, I think I'll really like this setup...thx again Dianna for the link to sportsmanparadise.com...

That certainly looks like it should make for a more comfortable ride.

Was that from sportsmanparadise.com or sportsmansguide.com ?

Can't recommend this

After finally gettting some decent weather to get out and ride yesterday, the first time trying this sheepskin cover that I made. I wasn't happy with the slippery feeling that it gave, like I was sliding around in the seat. It's coming off, and I've decided to purchase the Corbin seat that lgower is selling from parting out his bike. Thanks for the great deal, Lee.

LMAO....that's almost the same thing a riding friend said (and another reason that it's already off, other than the sliding around feeling)...
