Hi All,
I just purchased a sheep skin seat cover.
Now, I have never used one before and some fellow I met said "start out on the trip with just the seat- then when your butt is sore, put the skin on".
Is this correct?
Thanks for your time...

I think I'd prefer my butt not to get sore and use it from the get-go. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/yes.gif) I think your advisor just wants you to have a before/after experience for comparison. I've never used sheep skin because of the look, but there are many times I wish I had. I have a set of beadriders that really help with hot sweaty chapped ass issues without leaving an animal pelt on my bike.

Beadrider +1! Some don't like them, but for me, they literally "saved my ass".

To get the full benefit of either the sheep skin or Beadrider you have to ride naked. Only problem with the sheep skin is the possibilities of skid marks. But that 'depends' on personal hygiene. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/bike.gif)

Been using a sheepskin for years, use a dog brush to get some air back into it. Wouldn't change it, works great in the extreme heat here (120+). Only time I take it off is to put the bike in for a service, then I notice that it makes me sit higher.
