LT Upholstery With Ribbing.
So, the more LTs I see, both here and on the road, the greater is my confusion. Seems that every one I've come across has smooth upholstery on the saddle, passenger seat, and backrest. My bike came with a stock saddle and passenger cushion that has ribbing on its face. I'm thinking that, somewhere during its life, the bike had the original seats swapped out (the back pad is still smooth) for these. In fact, since the bike came with a Corbin saddle which had an altogether different pattern, I had my upholsterer re-cover it to match what's on the bike. (See photo).
My question is, when were these seats offered and why?
