    Hello,

    Anybody here use the airhawk seat cushion on long rides? If so how do you like it and does it help? Just got back from a 1800 mile ride with the wife and needless to say the derrier was not feeling great. Currently not looking for another seat as i don't think that is the answer either as i'm sure there is some difference but not convinced there is enough to put out the money for a different seat.

    Thanks for all your input

    My wife and I both use airhawk. We used to be in pain after riding all day, now we can do 600 miles a day if we have too. We don,t do it often but it,s nice to know you can. Just don,t put too much air in it, you,ll love it.

    I bought an Airhawk at Sturgis in 2001. I use it often. Airhawk makes wheel chair seat pads and bed pads for disabled patients. Simple item and not cheap.

    I've used them but I generally dont start out using one but switch to it when I start to feel uncomfortable. I've used it on some seriously long rides on my old FJR1300 and it was a savory to say the least.
