Numb bum, Sweaty ass and Wet crotch....

Today’s mini project was fitting a ‘Sit&Fly’ style 3D mesh seat cover to my baby GS.
For those who don’t know about these covers, they are a woven 3D mesh which does NOT fully compress under your weight, but instead allows air to flow between your butt and the top of the seat. Great for avoiding ‘sweaty ass syndrome’ when riding here in the tropics.
Also added benefit - when it rains it allows the water to drain away so you’re not sitting in a puddle of water on your crotch area!
Oh.... and the little bit of extra springiness makes long rides so much more comfortable!

That is a really good idea.
Is it is purpose made for the 310 or is it a kit .
Where can they be bought, eBay - Amazon ?

They are certainly available on Ebay as 'Sit and Fly' seat covers but I bought mine on-line in Philippines from China supplier so definitely will be on Aliexpress.

My first ride out today with the seat cover fitted. almost immediately I could feel the cool flow of air around my dangly bits! Outside temperature was 32C. Very happy with this purchase. Feels a little more spongy seat as well so should be good on longer rides.

Plus if you put your cell phone under the seat it becomes a Faraday Cage and no one can track your movements.

...Yeh but with respect the one you listed is NOT a mesh-style seat cover, but more a 'leather-look' padded cover; a completely different design, function and construction.
