Airhawk R Seat Pad
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.

Saved my fat butt on the first try.
I'm a fat boy and my wife and I ride a vstrom 650 adventure.
We go on 13 hr 400-500 mile trips each weekend. A hundred miles into the ride, I'm usually pulling over to take a break. Last week I went 259 miles and pulled over just to eat and fuel up. This is an amazing product.

Worth every penny
My 2014 BMW R1200RT has a comfortable saddle, but after a while it can get a bit uncomfortable. Enter the Airhawk! No more discomfort. You ride on a thin layer of air that moves through the different chambers. All pressure points are taken away. Best investment for touring comfort when I need it.

Cured my back pain on long rides. It's wiered how it doesn't require much inflation. Whatever, it works
I was skeptical but at my age and work history my body is a little wore out. I'll try anything if recommended which helps bring me comfort. Well this product did.
