Gear Review: Motorcycle Seat Covers – Sheepskin vs. Beaded

In the video below, I discuss a couple of options for cheap ways to make your motorcycle comfier for those longer rides – sheepskin covers and beaded seat covers.

 

For those who want a quick rundown of things:

Sheepskin seat cover

Pros:

  • Comfy and soft
  • Cheap
  • Snug for winter

Cons:

  • Can look a bit daft
  • Not great if it gets wet
  • You have to make it yourself

 

Beaded seat cover

Pros:

  • Cool in the summer (due to airflow underneath)
  • Firm, but comfy
  • Massaging effect
  • Can buy readymade

Cons:

  • Cold in winter
  • Can cause you to slide on the seat under harsh braking
  • The inevitable taxi driver jokes
