And today was one of those days.I have been thinking a bout takking my air cushion that I sit on while turkey hunting and strapping it to my seat and trying it. It has the adjustable air valve as well and if it helps I will probably spend the money for the air hawk,sort of a try before you buy deal.I know this cushion is comfortable and if it helps some ,one purpose built for a bike will be even better.Looks like a plan anyway.

|slimvulcanrider||i know he was.. but I hated my AH so bad it ended up in the dumpster less than a week after purchase. Hence why I posted my thoughts on a custom seat.|

Slim - I think he was asking for advice on the Airhawk... not the seat.
On to that... I sit in the middle, but I have placed my AH back a bit more so it covers the lower half of the seat rise. Adjusting the air with it in that position helps out. Fill it up, then sit on the thing in riding position, letting the air out slowly until it's not like sitting on a balloon anymore. Hope that helps. Love the Hawk.

|slimvulcanrider||hence the reason I made my own seat... nothing fits every one the same, the only way to get a perfectly comfortable seat is to have one specially made to you.. but that cost lots of money... unless you make your own.|

How do you adjust/fill your airhawk pad? (and my brief review)
Took my new airhawk pad for a 420 mile spin today:
1. the zipper stinks. Had to fight with it twice to get it zipped properly
2. seat is way more comfortable, but still had posterior/tailbone pain.
So, for those that have an Airhawk seatpad, how do you use yours? How full? Do you sit in the middle or towards the back edge? Have you done anything to mod it? (I am considering adding a foam pad with a tailbone cutout to slide into the cover)
