Well Mr. Allen, we may be doing something different here. I have gotten into the habit of using a Cool Ass seat cover and keeping the stock seat covered most times when off the scoot. Now the wife is complaining about aches and pains (she's a bit older than me) and I want a back rest (catching up in age), so we are thinking about a Corbin $eat. I dont have a problem looking after a leather seat and I have used their $eats in the past. Nice quality and comfort. Will post a review IF we pull the trigger.
