What a great product!
I live in Houston Texas and ride long distances as well. While the seat of the BMW R1200RS does not get hot from a mechanical heat source (like an exhaust), heat does build up and every bit of airflow can only make the ride more comfortable. While I have not tested this in a Houston summer, testing it today (65 deg.F) suggests that it will perform very well – it must by design. You are kep elevated above the surface of the seat and as a result air is able to flow feely. It also seems like a durable product that will last for some time to come.

Having bought a KTM 1050 Adventure I was probably in more need than most for a hot bum solution, as the KTMs run really hot and the heat source is right below the seat. The previous year on a tour to Sicily had been particularly uncomfortable, and I was keen to see how much difference this would make on my tour to Romania.
Having done many thousands of miles on mine and can confirm that not only does it work with regard to heat build up, but it is not showing any signs of wear. It also adds an extra level of comfort to the ‘Comfort’ seats I have on the bike. The mesh seems to spread your weight more evenly across the bum, and numbness and pins and needles are a thing of the past. Added bonus is that in the rain it avoids the puddling in your groin that normally results in some dampness getting through your trousers, and first thing in the morning you don’t need to wipe the seat if there has been rain.
All in all, a great product that I highly recommend to my customers.Paul Myers – MCi Tours
How I have managed without this I’m not sure. Great comfort and nice and cool. Looks nice and pretty sure the longer rides will be even better now. 5 star service from start to finish thanks JohnRichard Jackson

Stopped in at Ledbury and had covers made for our custom seats on our BMW 1250GSA. John and Co. could not have been more helpful.
Then did 140 miles non stop back home. The seat covers made it very comfortable – and cool……..my gentlemen’s bits were extremely comfortable, and my wife had a smile on her face! It was weird to feel the cool air flowing between my thighs then all the way under my backside – just as advertised. Thoroughly recommended!
This product works, it really cools your body ( buttock). I rode 26,000 km from eastern Canada to Alaska and back in a variety of temperatures. It really improved my riding and extended my time/distance between each stop. It also fits great on your seat. It’s so effective that when the temperature fell below 12 degrees Celsius, I had to lay something over it because I was getting cold. I also want to mention that the staff at Cool Covers were exceptional in dealing with. I recommend this product because it works. Please be aware that the Cool Cover does not solve all your riding comfort issues. The type of seat, the location of the pegs and other factors affect the overall comfort in a ride.Louis DEVEAU
It’s August in Texas. 104 deg f (40 c) in the shade! I bought a cool cover for my Triumph Tiger 800 back in the spring. Of all the mods I have done to my bike this has had the most impact on my riding comfort. You can hop on the bike after sitting in direct sun with no heat whatsoever. Before my pants would be soaking wet after a short ride in the summer. Now they stay dry and you can actually feel the airflow on your butt when riding! On to of that the factory seat is much more plush and comfortable. Fitment was spot on. A big “Yehaw” for Cool Covers!Michael Barnett
Yesterday i bought the product for rider for bmw r1200gsa 2017.CHRIS P.
perhaps the first customer in greece!!
for 40-42 degrees celcius this is a must!!!
Ordered a cool cover to fit my BMW GSA. firstly, fantastic customer service and secondly a fantastic product which not only does exactly as it’s name suggests but looks great too! Thank youRob Preece
I used a bike fitted with a cool cover for a trip accross Austrailia. After 4000+ miles and three weeks in the saddle there is no doubt it made my trip much more comfortable than it would have been otherwise. I felt the differance from the outset. For sure I’ll be fitting to my bikes in future.Chris
Fitted a cover to my Triumph Tiger 800 and it works that well, I have just ordered one for my BMW RT1200Dave Stacey
