    @rustyman101 there are few videos on modding dirt bike seats in YT. I
    recomend to buy the same seat for bike somewhere on Internet, and then try
    modding it. It would be terrible to ruin your only bike seat :O

    a quick release seat post would be convenient and just take your seat with
    you its not like it weighs a ton! and i do believe the perferation on her
    seat cover does help absorb farts and disperse it thru the open remainder
    perferated holes!

    @makemagazine We now know the brand name of your bike and are going to
    go quietly it! 0:21

    why don’t you just reupholster it with leather? anyway the only way of
    stopping seat jackers is by ballbearing the seatpost nut

    @rustyman101 I would not recommend it for a generous power bike because the
    G-force s in a turn are greater then that of a bikecycle and if the cover
    slides from under you it might not be pretty. but hey depending on the
    fabric it might work. test it at different speeds. OOO but I do like the
    craft I reckon it is outstanding.

    @paukenkiger 1. it’s really leather, and the drawstring makes it really
    tight so it doesn’t slide. 2. Just throw it in the washing machine. 3. It’s
    to deter someone from stealing my name brand seat off of my parked and
    locked bike. 4. show me yours! Mine’s a 2009 Fuji track with 650 wheels,
    nothing to sneer at and a fantastic ride nearly town.

    the seat you had under it was really nice lol i don’t reckon i would have
    done that, would have just used a bike lock so people don’t go quietly it…

    You’re not supposed to sew over pins! They could break the needle and it
    could go flying into your eye!
