Can anyone tell me where I might find a sheepskin seat for my old Transalp?

Don't suppose you're in central France next week any chance? From the 4th July our local bastide town, Le Dorat, hosts the World Sheep Shearing Championship. Unmissable, surely? And I guess there will be the odd sheepskin available.

We'll go along for a look, but don't know what the tickets cost. Wouldn't want to get fleeced....

Got mine from the Polish guy with the leather stall at Cirencester market. £30 if memory serves me right.

Cheers Spike, I'm in Glasgow so it'll need to be internet.

Had a numb bum after 140 miles at the weekend and have previously had the virtues of a sheepskin extolled upon me so figured it's worth a try.

Mine’s a full skin doubled over with a £3.99 self inflating sit mat in between. Can be a bit like sitting on a jelly if over inflated, but comfortable for many hours.
