    Love the irony of the pink plaid on a motorcycle! Very clever.

    looks so cool, although i couldn’t do it here – in ireland riding in the rain is pretty much a sure thing!!

    What about rain? Do you sit in water then? I also have a motorcycle and a thought about this myself – but the material has to be waterresistant (like it is in general = sky leather)

      Yes I thought about this too, but this is the fabric he wanted. we have an over hang so he parks under that and doesn’t drive in the rain. We live in the desert so rain isn’t much of a problem.

      What’s sky leather?

      sorry for using the wrong word. Sky leather is fake leather.
      In the desert? It must be quite hot out there.

    Wicked!!! I love the plaid :D I recently did the same thing, but used marine vinyl. I think you did a better job of it, though :P
