My bike is pretty comfortable but after 300 miles on the factory seat, I start to ache. I was about to leave on a 2500 mile ride so I decided I needed something to prevent the butt ache. For the money, this is a good option. It didn't completely fix things but it definitely made things easier. A custom seat is probably your best option for comfort, but this is almost as good and much less money. I ended up buying another for my other bike, too. Now my a$$ lasts as long as my gas!
If you're looking to improve the comfort of your ride, without the cost of buying a whole new seat, you really can't go wrong with an AirSeat. It will take you a few rides to get the amount of air tuned in but, once you do, the difference it makes in your riding comfort is nothing short of absolutely amazing. I'm not exaggerating in the least when I tell you that before using the AirSeat, I would climb off my cruiser after only 50 miles and not want to sit down again for a good 20 minutes because, my backside was just that sore. Since getting my AirSeat, I've twice taken off on a full tank for a day of joy riding, and only realized I'd been in the saddle for nearly 150 miles, because I had to switch over to my reserves. Money well spent.
If your mama didn't pass along her butt genes, this thing is glorious! Probably pretty nice if you do have a natural cushion too. I bought a 2004 BMW R1150R a while back and really like the bike. But the seat isn't very good and I'm lacking in the natural cushion department. After seeking out others' experience with Airhawk products, I gave it a shot and am SO glad that I did.
I got this seat before I even rode in my stock seat on my Boulevard s40 because I have hip issues and knew I would be hurting with any amount of riding. I'm soooo happy I took that risk of spending this much on a seat. Not once have I been on my bike and had my butt or hips be anything but comfortable. Meanwhile, my boyfriend's **** is going numb on his Sportster. He thinks that this seat slides around too much, but I disagree. I never feel unsafe or unstable in this seat. It was pretty easy to install and we haven't had to adjust it since installing it. I aired it up with some slack using the free air pump so it isn't too hard and the air can redistribute easily to compensate for my butt. I can't recommend this seat enough!
I purchased this after buying a bike and then finding out I couldn't hardly ride it more than 15 minutes before my Sciatic nerve started to cause pain down my leg. Anyone who has problems with that will know. It has something to do with the the seat or position I am in. I played around with various things trying to change my position while riding the bike. I bought the pad and it has almost resolved my problem totally. So if not for the pad I probably would have had to sell the bike or possible go buy another seat to just see if it would make a difference. This is a whole lot cheaper and your butt doesn't get near as tired riding for long distances.
