Product Review written for Countyline Publications and printed in Wisconsin and Illinois Biker Information Guidethird quarter 2010 Want a more comfortable ride? Stop by Alligator Bob’s Shop, Advanced Custom Design, located in Lake Villa, IL. (on Hwy. 59 just south of Grass Lake Rd.) and have a Pro Pad installed in your stock seat or any after-market seat.  Their same day service is available by calling ahead and making an appointment and they have loner seats available for most bikes so there is no down time.  That’s right, you can ride with a loner seat, while they install a Pro Pad in your seat. (Installation takes 3 to 4 hours for each Pro Pad installed) Shawn and I both had the Pro Pads installed this year and we love them! Here are some Pro Pad facts: Not a gel, it’s a Viscoelastic Dry Polymer Will not crack, leak, freeze or dry out Life time warranty Handles wide range of temperatures:   -60* to +220* Reduces pressure points for a longer ride time Gets rid of the “numb butt” Designed in the Medical Field, it offers proven technology.  Other suppliers also offer Pro Pad as an attachment to the top of your seat. Installing the Pro Pad will NOT change the height of your seat.  But they can and also did a Foam Modification on my Springer Softail seat above; to move me back for my long legs.  But their foam work can move you forward, or lower your seat, trim the sides, at the same time they’re installing the Pro Pad. They can recover your seat in Leather (many colors in stock) or consider Exotic Skins, they stock Elephant, Alligator, Ostrich, Shark, Hippo, Stingray, Python, Lizard, Hair on Calf and Buffalo Hide. Stop by and see the shop and tell them you saw the article. Need Help or have questions? Call Alligator Bob at 847-265-9378 Check out their web site:
