Default Seat Cover ???

Anyone know of a seat cover that will fit the XC seat. I don't want to mess up tank paint with a cover while riding in rain. I have the C Ness suede seat that has stitching and suede inserts. Going on a 3K mile trip and we usually see our share of rain. last time on the Road Glide I had a wet seat for several days afterward. I like the seat but Ive only had it a couple weeks. I haven't seen anywhere from Vic on how to clean this seat.
Thanks, mike

Default Seat Cover

Mean City Cycle shows a seat cover. I think it is actually a seat pad built into the cover. I just sent my seat there today to do a Double Decker Foam Mod because I get hot seat after a couple hours ride. By all accounts/reviews on their site they have some good products. Hope this helps.

My last 3 HD's had seats done by MCC. Always been happy with their work. They can take a stock seat and make it as good as any high priced name brand seat.

Lots of places make covers for seats, but most seats have a single point at the front. I'm worried about the shape of Vic seat at the front fitting the cover and rubbing tank paint.

2011 C2,
Since your seat is there can you call and ask it they can make a seat cover? If so can you see what they charge?

This may be a good deal for them; if they're advertise that they can make them they will be able to sell them. I couldn't find anything on their website about removeable seat covers or rain covers but they have to know there's a market for them.

I rode out to HD dealer yesterday and tried to fit the HD touring rain cover over the Vic seat and it won't stretch far enough. I would guess the Mustang covers for HD seats probably won't fit either. I need something by Thur. or I guess I'll take along a plastic trash bag.
