I've bought one of these Cool Seat Covers and a Lambland Sheepskin off Amazon and I will attach velcro to each so that the sheepskin can be removed.

On the varadero i cut the sheepskin to shape, cut four small slits in the front and threaded a bungee through, then that went over the seat to attach to the engine bars. Worked well and it was secure but easy to remove.
Now ive got an S10 i need to figure out how to attach it, that gives me another hour in the mancave during our enforced hibernation!

Not sure if up to your standards and if it does help. Worked for me. Cheap elastic tape long enough when it stretches goes under the seat. Seat of course has to be taken off for the skin to be put on. ImageImage
