Airhawk2 Cruiser Pad
It does what it says.
If you have pressure point problems, this will help. It does raise you up though. If you are at your limit in seat height it might be too much. But I really needed it. John

So far it has lived up to the promise of comfort
I like the comfortable seating so far. I will be going on a two week extended ride and that will be the true test. I have only used in on 200+ mile rides so far. Needed to play with the inflation pressure to see what I liked on these shorter trips. Waiting to see if that setting is right for the longer rides. Big thing I noticed so far is no pressure points or monkey butt after a few hours riding without stopping. Happy with the purchase and ease of adjustment on the seats.

i tested this product extensively...
just did 2000 miles over the past week in every kind of warm weather condition and road type you can imagine. whether you are slogging out miles on an interstate to get to the next set of twisties. in those twisties leaned over hard. climbing switchbacks on an 18% grade. cruising through rain. this pad never gave an inch of slip and kept my derriere (ha @ language filters here) from barking!

No more monkey butt............great customer service
My travel distance at least doubled since I installed this on my bike. I have a v strom, and 300 miles was about my limit. I just finished a 700 mile day with very little "monkey butt" with the airhawk. It takes a little getting use to because it felt like I was rolling around on the seat . After awhile I barely noticed, and now I can ride several hours without stopping. I was skeptical about buying this because it is kind of pricey. I had to do something, and this was the cheaper than buying a seat.
The sizing on these are a little funky. I initially ordered a small before checking the dimensions. Thanks to Revzillas awesome customer service for changing my order and getting me the medium which seems to fit my seat better. Airhawk also makes a DS pad which would probably be a better fit for my seat. But not knowing if this was going to work for me I did not want spend the extra money.

Makes a big difference
I have been using the Airhawk 2 for a few months now and I must say, it is great. It took some time to get the air adjusted just right but after that it is wonderful. It makes a long trip a pleasure rather than a pain. I would recommend it to anyone.

Definite improvement over stock seat.
I ordered the small AH2 to fit BMW F700GS, which, to me, has a seat that is basically the same seat I had on my CR250 moto-x bike. It is a great seat for...standing. The airhawk, once you have the right pressure dialed in, allows air to circulate and getting rid of the "hot spots" that usually settle in after about an hour of continuous riding. It does not raise the sitting height noticably and it seems to be made well. I cannot comment on durability as it only has about 120 mi. on it from a short ride the other day. It does come with a few patches in the event your dog thinks it's his new toy. I have heard only good things about the product which led to my purchase - it is a popular, economical upgrade for sport-touring riders.

Great help on a long dual sport ride!
The Airhawk Cruiser small helped keep this 50+ year old comfortable riding a Yamaha wr250r on a 300+ mile ride home after riding the WABDR for a few days. I thought I'd take it off on trail sections for better bike control... but used it all the time. With just a thin layer of air... it helped with 8+ hour riding days and didn't interfere with my trail riding (and it hasn't come off the bike since!). It might benefit from more robust straps and buckles; the pad shifted an inch or so to one side during my several day ride but still "did the job" and I was never concerned it was coming loose. Recommended.

Feels a bit wobbly but comfortable
I think it will take some getting used to. I need to make sure I sit on the front of it or I feel like the air pushes you off the back of the pad. You have to get on it at the right angle. It's also very wobbly for performance riding. But I think it's something I could get used to. I would take it off once I get off the freeway. My butt has not hurt yet, so it seems to be working.
