Default Grey Market Insight

Those sheepskin bikes that you see are not such a bad idea. I have recently had the misfortune of placing my *** on a bike seat at about 45 degrees, and the sensation is not exactly pleasant

The fur-like thing that you see is an excellent example of recycling. Rag pickers often collect shredded clothing. There are syndicates collecting rejects at ports and docks. In fact I am told that they even have access to clothing 'donated' after every catastrophe that nature decides to afflict our country with. These clothes and rags then undergo reverse engineering...that is, they are shredded back to yarn, and dyed and then made into these auto-fur coats that you see.

What could be dangerous however is the fact that there is almost zero traction between your *** and the seat. Therefore, either get 'ABS butt cheeks' or figure out a way to roll them up behind the seat when you are riding and roll them out on the seat when you have to park in the Sun.

Dude, if those clothes keep your lower cool, then why use them in monsoon and winter ..

This is what wannabes end up doing. Probably the poor guy wanted to live his dream of riding a CBR.

I don't think the makeshift headlamp will be that effective as a OEM would.
