Auto dept, seat pads/covers section. It's just a waffle style rubber pad in a cover. We use them with a gel pad added in them as they have a zipper. We had them with us when we all camped together.

I've looked at those Skoosh pads before and have thought about getting those as they have the sectional pads in them so you have a tail bone relief built right in them.

My wife uses a sheepskin covered gel pad with a tailbone cutout. It allows her to ride about twice as far. Its called the "Ortho-Deluxe" from http://www.amspecialitiesusa.comfor about $120. I've known others who swear by it, too. They'll take it back if you don't like it. Good company. [gel pads will raise you about an inch higher from the ground].

Also check this archive:

  1. sheepskin seat cover - New Members Introduction Forum - Steve ...
  2. I prefer a plain sheepskin myself. Also, I've heard some good things about the $20. waffled-rubber, 'stadium seats' from Wally's in sporting goods or auto dept. They can be trimmed.
  3. Cushions &seats seem to be a very personal preference with the plain sheepskin being the most popular, but still not for everybody.
    Good luck !

I have just allowed my own natural padding to develop. It works fine and I always have it with me.

Give us a ride report on it after you've tried it for a few hundred miles. I may get some for us if your report is good.

I sure will, my tailbone is the major problem which the sheepskin helps but doesn't totally. The split pads is what makes it interesting / appealing to my bottom side:action:

Just completed my speedy checkout, it ships via priority mail and total was $47.94.
Lets see if it was money well spent:D

That pad looks good. I see it uses a non-slip material so it doesn't move. Only concern I might have is having it move either getting on/off the bike but also I stand up when riding to stretch sometimes and wouldn't want it to fly away.

OK, open fire about unsafe standing up when traveling.....
