    Beautiful seat. Can you post up a profile picture of the bike and seat. Tell me about it. Is it firm? Does it have a rain barrier between the leather and padding? Does it have a gel pad? How does it change your riding position?

    Don't know about rain barrier, or gel for that matter, specifics on it were pretty thin. Comes with external rain cover so I suspect that it lacks an internal one.
    I haven't been out for a spin on it yet. Aesthetically, I think I prefer my solo seat but it's nice to have a different option to keep things fresh haha.
    I dont have much on pedigree, except that it is nearly identical to the one used on the "Nomad" design study. Some profile pics are on web:
    wide.piaggiogroup.com/en/articles/garage/eicma-2017-the-custom-moto-guzzi-bikes/index.html
    Difference being that the one I received has the leather strap.

    Sourced overseas, came in M G packaging labelled as an accessory, rather than replacement part fwiw. Arrived much more promptly than some other things I've ordered in the past.
