Airhawk R Seat Pad
Worth its weight in GOLD!
I’ll be very honest with you. At first, I was put off by the price tag. I mean 200 bucks for a seat pad? I’m buying a seat pad, not a new seat. And then I read an independent online review, which tested 5 seat pads on cross-country motorcycle trips, and I decided to give the AIRHAWK® R Cruiser Comfort Seating System by ROHO a try. I’m glad I did!
On a previous trip, I had ridden my 2013 Heritage Softail Classic 560 miles in 10 hours without a seat pad, and the pain was excruciating. It was bad enough that I was stopping about every 90 miles and taking breaks – one was at least 30 minutes. Even with a long break, it was difficult to walk and painful to get back on the bike. Before my next trip, I ordered the AIRHAWK® R Cruiser Comfort Seating System. With the AIRHAWK® R, I rode 707 miles, 14 hours, in one day. I was able to ride 105-110 miles on each leg with minimal soreness, and after 10-15 minutes for gas and a snack, I was as good as new! Not only could I ride further but I got back on the bike refreshed after each stop, as if I was getting on for the first ride of the day. I was both amazed by and thankful for this little product called the AIRHAWK® R Cruiser Comfort Seating System. I won’t ride again without it!

good build quality, easy to use
I purchased this product as a Christmas gift for my dad. The rubber insert is extremely durable, and can be inflated by simply blowing into it. The outside cover has a soft top and a rubber bottom to ensure a good grip on the seat. It also comes equipped with seat straps but works just fine without. Great product!

Worth the investment!
The Airhawk R seat pad has been one of the best choices I have made. This item makes long rides much more comfortable resulting in even greater enjoyment of my bike. If you are considering an upgrade to your seat, look seriously at this product. You will not be disappointed.

Saving your butt on long rides
No matter what you ride. If you ride over 200 miles on your journey, do yourself a favor and get this. Some of the best $ i've ever spent for long distance rides. I've ridden from LA-Phoenix-North Dallas and back a few times but this last time my butt and back were not sore or fatigued. DO NOT put too much/too little air in or it'll defeat the whole purpose. Just like other reviewers, your butt should just be above the seat, literally. You'll be floating so to speak. I left mine with the same air as it arrived, then adjusted once on my way back from North Dallas to El Paso. Yes, it will seat you a lil' higher but not much and it'll feel a lil' weird from your seat, especially on turns or twisty's, but once you get used to it, you'll be glad you did get it. The rubber on the bottom grips great. It will not shift on you while riding, you have to adjust it yourself. I didn't use the straps it came with and I just throw it in my hard bag when checking into the hotel or going into a restaurant where I can't see my bike. Another cool aspect is if you have more than one bike, like many, you can easily move it and your movin' & groovin'. If needed, I can even use it at my office or use it on long drives across the country in my car with leather seats, I'll take it and trying it for sure. As the saying goes and I'm paraphrasing, "long m/c rides teach you about your bike... and yourself". A good dependable bike of choice, good/great helmet, good and comfortable gear, some heated gear, rain gear, cash, a credit card, and this seat. This is definitely worth the coin and is a lot cheaper than a new seat you may only use a few times a year. Ride fun and safe. \m/

Does not bulk up
It will not bulk up seats like foam or gel that will leave you tippy toes. Works as expected did 300 miles to test it and it delivers. Although it was winter time so I have not ridden this over summer I am about to find out.

Worth the relatively high expense.
I've had this cushion for about 5 hours of riding on my 2014 Yamaha Bolt. The Bolt has a uniquely uncomfortable seat position especially for big guys like me (6'3" and 34" inseam). This cushion of air gets the delicate parts off the rigid, non-cushioned portion of the Bolt's seat.
Before this cushion, I was ready to sell my Bolt for something much more comfortable (like the Honda or the Harley, of which I am not a fan), but I quickly changed my mind. The pain and discomfort that was building over the past 7 months on the Bolt vanished in an instant.
I highly recommend this air cushion for anyone suffering during a long cruise on a great bike. No point in trying to enjoy the bike when the seat makes it unbearable.

excellent product and performs just like it says
This is a great piece of equipment. It does exactly what it says it does. The trick though is to inflate it just a touch. If it isn't working for you, then you might have it inflated too much. It literally should look like it's flat when it's done right. About 2 sections filled with air in the whole thing.

ideal fit on my 2014 R1200 GS LC stock seat
Product performs as advertised. Took several "adjustments" to get the comfort level to my liking. Much more comfortable after 90 minutes with virtually no moving around at all. Very impressed so far.
