A few weeks ago I posted that while traveling with my bike, the weather did a job on the saddle even though I had it covered with a plastic grocery back. Wind ripped it apart, then the saddle would get soaked, grimy etc. Someone recommended wrapping the plastic tighty with duct tape. Well I did it and it worked perfectly on a 5 hundred mile drive yesterday. Driving about 450 today, we'll see if it continues to protect the saddle. Not sure who suggested it, but whomever it was, thanks!!
