Well, the results are in. Did just over 1,000 miles this weekend with the Air Hawk II cushion, unbelievable comfort. Finally got the air adjusted right, takes very little air actually. Did consecutive days of 380, 280 and 380 miles. As you change position, it adjusts so you don't have any pressure points. I was very impressed.

I've done a few thousand miles on my Air Hawk and I really like it. You can find them on Ebay for 'bout $82.00. May sound a little pricey for a seat cushion, but it's a lot cheaper than an aftermarket seat.

I would echo what others have suggested on this forum: get the medium cruiser pad.

Ditto on all of the above. The key to comfort is to put much less air in it than you'd think. I only use one strap, slipping it around the back-rest post.

I don't use it for short trips. But I add it to my Corbin on long trips, and it's an a$$-saver.

I did over 1400 miles in two days with my AirHawk twice. Worked out to be about 14-15 hours of saddle time each day. Would have never made the trips and still be able to walk without it. Once you find your sweet spot with it it's great. But I also made a pad that slides inside and under the rubber to give the old tailbone a bit more space.



The pad was made from a garden kneeling pad of dense foam that I picked up for $2. My cuts are a bit rough, but it works for me. :)

I really only use it for long trips, but the wife uses it when we ride two up.

Chuck A: got mine from a buddy who has a motorcycle parts business, but you can find them on ebay. The AirHawk II is cheaper, supposed to be good for 600 miles per day vs. 1,000 for the original AirHawk, but for the price difference it is just fine. I've got the medium, it fits great. I just tie it on with laces that I have tied under the seat, that way just have to untie 4 spots and it is off.

Another benefit is that it allows for some air circulation under you, which is really nice on the hot days. Was in mid-90's one day, was in textile riding pants and was fine.
