Airhawk R Cruiser Seat Pad
Good option for long rides
I was a little leery about the product itself, not knowing if it would work, especially after reading a few reviews. It ended up being a pretty good product for the money, went on a long ride (5 hrs) and was not near as sore as I was on similar rides before.

Very good value seat upgrade
There are already a hundred recommendations for these seats, I just want to stress to any purchasers that you must not overinflate to get the best performance: it is NOT an air mattress, it's designed to augment the seat you already have, you should feel like you're sitting on your seat, just with support around the edges to keep pressure points dissipated.

Best comfort item EVER.
I went from a one hour butt to being comfortable ALL DAY. Seriously! BEST SEAT PAD EVER! The only downside is that when you gain altitude the seat expands. I overcame this with a hand pump that can inflate and deflate the seat while you are riding. No stopping to adjust and no discomfort. www.BetterMotorcycleStuff.tictail.com. I frequently ride from sea level to over 10,000 feet in altitude. This turned a great seat into the perfect seat.

My butt doesn't hurt
Makes putting on the miles less painfull. Fits well on my '13 Triumph Explorer.

I used this pad for half of a 3,000 mile trip. I ordered it about 1/3 of the way through my trip because the seat on my 2014 BMW R1200RT was starting to really get to me. It arrived promptly at a friend's house and I go tot use it for the 2nd half of the trip (some interstate, some twisties). After what I feel is a good test period I have to say that this a good addition to my long distance travel. There is a 60 day return policy (Revzilla honors) that basically says if the pad doesn't add miles to your ride, you can return it. Well I will not be returning it because it clearly added many miles before those "need-to-stop" stops. In addition, it eliminated my need to stand up on the pegs once in a while to get some circulation back in my derrière. Well designed. The medium fit nicely for my application. I am 5'9" 170lbs. Takes a little while to adjust right- I felt like I was sliding forward in the beginning few miles, but after moving it around a bit and letting out some more air, it was just right. Good way to spend $150.

Makes the difference between riding and limping
I ordered the Airhawk R Cruiser seat pad to help me be able to get out and really ride again. I'm a Disabled Vet with chronic pain in my legs. The longer rides, 200-300+ miles, just couldn't be done anymore. I'd get off my bike and almost literally crawl into the house or hotel room from the pain.
The Airhawk has really, really changed that! I can now ride the distance and when I dismount my legs still work normally! I've tried gel seat pads and every other kind out there but they just didn't do the job. The Airhawk does. My legs work, my backside no longer feels dead, and my back doesn't feel like it's been beaten to death.
For anyone looking for a truly comfortable ride, this is the solution.
Yes, it's a bit pricey, but I spent the money because I've only got this one life to live, to ride, continuing to enjoy a life-long love of motorcycles and the open road. I don't regret purchasing the Airhawk and you won't either.

This is by far the most comfortable seat pad I've ever used, I've tried all my friends, different kind of gel seat pads, beads, etc... This thing is awesome! the initial test was a 425 mile ride, when I got off the bike I felt like I had only done 100 miles, was ready to keep going, all my friends with gel seats were done, got up the next day and rode the tail of the dragon, again no problems, from there onto Huntsville AL, then to Talledega the next day, then 750 miles home split over 2 days, put a ton of miles on that weekend don't think I could have done that without this seat, totally love this thing, I highly recommend it. It's a bit pricey but worth every penny.

Ive tried other pads and this seat pad topped them all. i used to have a sore tail bone after a long day ride. i never had an issue after a 2600 mile trip. 300 miles a day and could have gone further because of this GREAT Airhawk Seat pad!!!!
i ride a 1200 RT w/ a "Corbin" Seat. This pad makes it fun to ride. With the right amount of air, its great. Too much air and you roll around a bit.
Thank you Airhawk and Revzilla for this recomendation!!
