A lot of folks have the ATV seat cover including me (thanks to Paper). It helps with comfort a bit, but the best thing it does is add an inch or so in height.

ATV Seat

Took my first ride yesterday. About 10 miles to store and back.
Seat is a little harder than my first one ( see same link above ) made with foam and fake fur cloth cover.
It gave good support and made the stock seat wider to sit on.
Also looks better on bike than my home made one.

The first one wouldn't be good in rain but I was able to put on 100 mile trips in comfort. The advantage of customizing the padding your self.

Looking forward to giving the ATV cover a longer run soon. It looks like it would be ok in rain, or at least would dry out faster.

Any one using the ATV cover have comments on how it is when wet?
