Custom Seat cover

I am on the verge of having a custom seat cover made by my local upholstery guy. I'm considering a Gator Skin material. Have any of guys had this type of material on a seat before? If so, does it hold up with long term use?

A coworker had gator skin added to his 2017 Road Glide and had it dyed purple to match the purple paint. While I'm not a purple kind of guy, his bike looks good and that seat came out awesome. It's just the stock seat that he reupholstered and it looks great on his bike. I have a pair of gator boots that I bought back in 1998 - 20 years ago! They have been re-soled, but the gator skin holds up well. So does Stingray.

From what I know about gators, they live a pretty rough life, in and out of water, if their skin works for them, I'm pretty sure your ass ain't gonna hurt it.


Overtime pays more because of what you're missing, money isn't everything.
