Airhawk Dual Sport Seat Pad
The seat on my KTM 1190 ADV is really hard. Bought this solution and it took awhile to find the needed amount of air to feel good. Now the long trips are easier. But there is one cons - I'm slipping back while accelerating fast.

This product did not work for me.
I purchased the Air Hawk DS for use on my 2005 Suzuki V-Strom 650, the oem seat tends to push me forward toward the tank and the padding is thin. I am 6ft./245lbs. The Air Hawk pad was wide enough but too short for me. It would not give support front to back, and did nothing to prevent the seat contour from pushing me forward.
This pad may work ok for a smaller rider on the V-Strom, but did not work for me.

This pad litteraly saved my butt.
I didn't expect a seat pad to make a big difference in my riding experience, but my new Air Hawk made me a believer on my first ride. The temperature on the hottest stretch of road was 104, and I was the most comfortable one of the bunch. The learning curve was fairly easy, once I got the air pressure dialed in. I was carving the road on my chicken strips and my seat always felt stable. Several of my riding buddies are talking about getting themselves one. I thank you and my butt thanks you more.

More miles with smiles
I have an older Airhawk but it didn't fit the shape of my R1200R seat. The new Dual Sport is a great improvement and works very well. They are expensive, but so is a new seat.

R1200RT Extends riding in comfort
I purchased the Airhawk specifically for our "old military guys" annual ride. After several 500 mile days, my butt felt better than in previous years. A couple of the guys on the trip rode it for a couple hours and were impressed as well. Another advantage is the the ease of transferring it from one motorbike to another, if you have more than one in the garage.

Great, quick and not too pricey solution
I own a 1990 RD04 Honda Africa Twin. The bike is a legend and overall mechanic and performance are just great. The only problem......THE SADDLE IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH HUMAN ANATOMY!!!!! I thought in buying a new aftermarket saddle but decido to give a try to the Air Hawk DS. After a few minutes of installation and a couple of milles of playing with the right amount of air in the internal bladder, the thing work just fantastic. I extend my ridding time considerably, I'm not swinging right to left after an hour riding and I'm more focused. I just not longer looking for excuses to stop. Great solution for an affordable price.

saved me a lot of trouble
I purchased this seat after getting numerous positive feedback and I am glad i made the purchase. I live in India and ride iron 883. not to mention combination is deadly enough to kills your back and give you enough sour A$& issue. recently I did a long ride for about 400miles..approx 600Km and made 2 short stops.
Initially I felt little uncomfortable and had to make air pressure adjustment. thanks to other reviews who mentioned to keep the air pressure to least. you will feel like a layer in between and your seat. magic is really in the lessor air and not to inflate it to the max.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone suffering from sour butt issue or is a regular rider on long rides.
all the best.
P.S thank you revzilla for wonderful experience. this was my first purchase with you guys and will be glad to do business with you
