Puddle on rear seat

Yesterday when I was washing the bike I was reminded about the non draining puddle on passenger seat.
Anybody come up with a cheap idea how to fix this?

If you drive slower and less radical that should keep puddles from developing in the passenger area.

So far no good, try some other ideas. During the ride the dry towel gets wet and then my wife's butt.No rain gear protects good enough if you seat in water for long time.Maybe a string or bungee cord tight across the seat would drain it.
I dont see how going slower is going to help, but the drill will work, just not on my bike.

Nowadays some of the rain gear IS truly waterproof...AND, the good news is you don't have to pay a lot of money for it. If you don't like any of the above ideas, better rain pants is your only viable option.

If it isn't broken, some people like to fix it until it is.

Frogg Toggs eventually soak through under butt pressure- I have never had soak through with my rain gear - Tour Master Elite.
I just thought you originally meant the wash puddle and in that case soak it up with a towel. The other answers are pretty funny though...

And going slower comment was probably a comment on scaring the pee right out of the passenger with riding style...

Having spent thousands of hours sitting on rain soaked seats I've not found anything that will not develop tiny cracks after a few weeks resulting in a wet butt.
