Summer is almost upon us (one can hope) and I'm thinking, again, about how I can keep the sun off my seat and, maybe, preserve my manhood in the process. I've tried several versions of cloth but noting is both insulated enough and compact enough to present a viable option.

Any ideas?

I almost used "Hot Nuts" in the subject line but thought better of it.

I would strap an airhawk on it.

Be careful of anything with gel in it, as the gel tends to soak up the heat from the sun!  Ask me how I know.  Whenever we parked somewhere, like for lunch, we'd leave our riding jackets draped over the seats.  Save roasting you know what on an open fire.  We also found that any seat cover made of vinyl turned the seat into a heat sink, so all our aftermarket seats had leather seating panels.  They weren't necessarily cool, but they were a lot less hot than vinyl covered seats.  Velour is even better, but doesn't last as long, gets dirty quickly, and soaks up water when it rains.

I was thinking of doing something with a sheepskin. (They are easily obtained over here especially around Easter:) This may be cheaper.

That would work. Had one on my bicycle for summer tours. Just stow it in case of rain.

Most of the sheep over here are, pretty much, water resistant.

The sheep are fine but riding with a soggy bottom not much fun.

Many local folks in my scooter club bought these. Flimsy and don't last, mylar with a little elastic unless they have changed. They do work.

That might be an option if I can find them on this side of the pond. The shipping from the US is almost the same cost of the cover!
