Hey, I hadn't planned to ride it naked. And depending on what I'm made of, I guess it could have made pasta out of me.

Well, now I've heard of a$$ hatchets AND a$$ shredders.
As if my butt didn't already look like a waffle.

It's my first experiment in drillium, and it's still harder than a brand new Unicanitor. My next step is to get a larger drill bit in the chuck and make those holes bigger. I'm saving it for the drop bar conversion I'm building on the $100 clunker contest thread.

Big thanks to Noglider for starting this thread, I've had that waffle saddle on my eBay watch list for about 6 months, but something has stopped me from pulling the trigger. I've almost bought that thing at least a half a dozen times.
