New Seats

My seat from this morning.

They weren't uncomfortable, but when it rained, the material beneath the cracked layer absorbed water, and when you sat on the seat, the water was squeezed out, resulting in wet pants.

The new seats are a bit thinner, and not as comfortable as the old ones, but at least they won't crack.
