I've been very happy with Airhawk cushions. The trick with them is to put just a bare minimum of air in them. Properly inflated, they look like they won't do a thing for you -- but that attitude changes as soon as you sit on one...
I bought the wild ass cushioned air bladder last August for a ride from philly to Des Moines Iowa. 1100 miles out. Rode straight through 23 hours on way home and my ass n back were fine! Can not recommend high enough...Hello all I'm looking for seat cushion suggestions for the wife and I we wanna start taking longer trips and can't afford Mustang seats but thought we could get away with using seat cushions for a longer ride as we are planning sometime in the near future a trip to San Diego from the Tucson Az area. I looked around a little bit and found Airhawk cushions which seem to be decent and reasonably priced but I don't know as this is the first experience I have had with this sort of thing! I appreciated any feedback to this end.
I just ordered some of the Beadriders. I'm looking forward to giving them a try this summer.I had Beadrider ceramic beads on the Triumph Trophy for really long hauls and they worked great, they allow air flow under the butt and made the long distance rides more comfortable. They're very durable, and they stay in place. The only thing I didn't like about them is that they raised me up an additional 1/2" to 3/4" on an already tall bike. I currently use an Airhawk II on the Guzzi and as others have stated, the key to the Airhawk is just enough air to keep your butt off the seat. Too much air and your butt feels like its rolling around on a bunch of marbles. It works fine on the Guzzi (rounder more elongated seat), but not so well on the Kawasaki adventure bike due to the deep (cup) shape of the seat, it causes the Airhawk to bunch up a little in the center. If I add more air, the bunch up goes away, but then your back to that rolling around on marbles feeling. I also have a gel pad that I use on the Kawasaki, it extends the ride time, but not as well as the Airhawk does on the Guzzi.
no responseThe bottom seat cushion cover on my 03 Convertible is done. I'm thinking of throwing on a set of the neoprene covers from the State of Nine, but it seems odd to me that there is a $35 upcharge for the specific year of 2003. Is the convertible seat really different between 2002 and 2003?
Any other good fitting seat covers out there? I don't want a universal fit $35 deal.
