Air hawk seat

Hi All,

I have been playing around with comfort over rough surfaces. I currently have bitubos (13inch) in the rear and added an AirHawk air seat pad. I must say this is the most comfortable I have made a 14 plus touring Harley so far. Down side is it puts you higher in the seat.

Anybody else on hear using AirHawk seat pad?

I use one on my 16 RGU. Love it.
Key is to only put enough air in it to keep you from bottoming out. Then it won’t raise you too much.

I love my Airhawk R. Just used it for my 990 miles over the weekend. I also wear padded bicycle shorts.

Just bought the Air-Hawk R-L after hurting my back fighting a cement mixer. Had to play around with the amount of air to put into the seat, (basically followed the instructions) but just enough air as Silver said. I've only done two small rides but the back is good so far.

I also have an Airhawk R that I use whenever I take a long trip.
I used it on my 2015 trip from NY to Sturgis on a stock 2012 RG Custom seat and had no problems at all.
It works best with the least amount of air in it.

Used Airhawk for years doing thousands of miles all over the country. Can't go wrong with it, helps a lot. Agree with air amount mentioned above

Thanks for the tip, I could probably let a little more air out, I do get a little rolling sensation sometimes. Makes me want to consider a Road Zepplin seat from Harley.

Another votefor the AirHawk. Rode from Daytona to Key West and my arse was killing me. A buddy let me borrow his on the ride back. I bought one when we got back to Daytona. Best $80 I have spent on the bike!

I have a Wild Ass seat cusion/air pad. Saved me on my Fatboy for long rides. Though it is a "sport" version. Doesn't fit the stock RG seat quite right.

I recommend them though. Seems to be the same concept as the air hawk.

How much higher in the saddle does the Airhawk raise you? Being vertically challenged sucks!!!
