07/01/2010 Yesterday I had a canvas cover made up for my gel pad. I rode home with it and I am unsure at this stage about it's effectiveness. I think I made a mistake in getting the size I did, I think I should have got the largest size possible. Something about my physical attributes means I am not getting the cover from the gel pad I bought. Actually it is too small for my motorcycle seat. True. Anyway I will continue to use it for now, it may simply require getting used to it.
