Anything I hate more than sitting on my bike and having to sit on a wet seat. It doesn't have to rain.....just the cool night air make the seat get wet. What is the solution? Where I live, bike accessories are rare. I searched this site and the internet and there seems to be nothing to solve this problem.

Agree totally. Wet seats in the morning are no fun. I did find a cure, although it is pricey. Take a look here: Waterpoof Motorcycle Seat Covers | King of Fleece | SPLITWEIGHT. I purchased one of these for my Suzuki Boulevard after I finally had had enough. It just plain works. The VStar 1300 I purchased has a full set of Ultimate Seats and backrests on it, and King Of Fleece don't have a seat cover specifically for it. So I ended up purchasing Ultimate Seats Rain Covers which are made of the same material as Frogg Toggs. Haven't had a chance to use them yet in the rain or morning dew.

Is it worth $100 to have a dry butt? Only you can answer that.

Do you have a bike cover? That helps with the dew. I also, leave a hand towel on the seat. That is the icing on the cake. I also keep the hand towel for laying on the seat in it very sunny out. Black seat. Can get hot, very quickly.

Surprisingly my Depends not only protect me from my own wetness but also the wetness from my seat. But I usually keep a chamois on my bike to wipe down anything that gets wet that I don't want moisture on.
