I got these in preperation for the SCBR, I planned on also using an air hawk or similar pad, my thought was that mixing things up may feel nice on the bottom end.
They feel great. One thing I noticed right away was that I no longer felt the strap on my seat, it always bothers me a bit.
Really nice to slide around on, I dig the look, definetly going to use them on a regular basis. Probably move them around in bikes if I was taking one or the other out for a long ride.
Worst things is I constantly think my cat is sitting on my scooter.

*I just realized these pics have them sitting on the scoots before I attached them with the strap. The strap holds the in place nicely, and the sides pull down a bit.

They are super comfortable.

Alaska leather. My brother and a friend both have a shorter shear, I have the long and natural on my p200, that's the one that always looks like a cat out of the corner of my eye.

I believe the Kiwis are the sheepskin seat cover guys? But hey if they have imported sheepskins then the import duty has already been paid.

Is the seat pad in your first photo (white scooter, brown pad, long seat) from the AlskaLeather outfit? If so, which specific model did you order? Are the straps connected under the seat or outside? I'd think under would better deter theft. Thanks in advance
