Need a seat so my ass stops bleeding.

I have bad hemorrhoids. This is annoying as it is due to the fact that i'm 23, but whatever.

The rock hard slick looking solo seat from Danny G is going up for sale and I need something pretty soft so my ass stops bleeding.

Would love some suggestions. Don't want to completely give up looks completely but need to sacrifice.

TLDR: I have butt problems. Need a seat for said butt problems. Not willing to stop riding for awhile until butt problems subside.

Thanks,
Nick

Hammock seat.

Really. Most larger dealers will have one that you can demo. Check it out for a full day. You'll be amazed.

You can also try using an Airhawk with your present seat.

I did not like the hammock at all.

Get you an inflatable donut and ride on that until what ails you clears up.

I'll have to look into that. Never heard of an air hawk.

I'll have to stop by my local dealer this weekend. I did not know that.

Hey Nick,

I used to get butt ache after about 40 minutes in the saddle. Got a Mustang seat and wasn't much better. Using the AirHawk helped a bit on longer trips, but wasn't the answer I was looking for. What did it for me was changing out the suspension. Super Shox in the rear and Progressive Monotubes up front enable me to drain a full tank of gas without butt ache. It's not an inexpensive solution, but you also will get improved handling as well. An AirHawk isn't bad if you only need help until the hemmies go away, but long term, suspension will be your best bet.

dude, you don't need a seat or suspension, you need surgery! hemorrhoids aren't anything to mess with. Like any other vessel they can rupture and cause you to bleed out. see your Dr and get this fixed as soon as possible!

Life is too short to put up with stupidity. Strive every day to educate someone, including yourself!
