Definitely. I bought two pads (both felt, fairly similar) and one I'll probably leave a little bigger/longer in case I want to use saddlebags, but one I'll cut to size and will be my main pad. I'll try the other one tomorrow and then decide which one I want to cut back. (Being felt they won't fray - love that you can slice 'em up if you need!)
