New Seat or Cover Needed

I just purchased a 1998 KLR and the seat covering is pretty ratty. I am in the process of preparing the bike for a trip to Tierra del Fuego next fall and need to update the seat.

I don't really want to spend the money on a Corbin (idea is to keep the bike cheap so I can leave it in place in SA in case of a mishap) and have been looking at the gel seat from Dual Star.

Anyone have experience with that model? I may also just go buy some new vinyl and recover it myself. Thanks for the input.

I've had the Dual Star Travelcade Gel seat on my bike for 3 years, and I have zero complaints. I find it comfortable, and even better with a slab of sheepskin over it. My only complaint is that it's not waterproof..

I just purchased the 08 KLR monday and ordered the kaw gel cover. Don't have it yet. But would probably work for your bike.
