Up until recently, I find after a couple of hours in the saddle I have to stop, get off and give my butt a break - and that's riding on my incredibly comfortable Le Pera seat. Some time back a member was selling his Air Hawk seat pads for driver and passenger at a great price and I grabbed them, not really expecting much. I was very much mistaken! Took back roads from Central Mass to Louden, NH (wife got me a Groupon for 10 laps driving a race car, but that's another story) and all I can say is "WOW! Three hours without a trace of sore butt - I feel I could ride all day without stopping except for gas. My buddy who came with me on his wide glide and who was hurting, tried the rider pad for a few miles and now is ordering his own. He was planing on buying a new seat but now does not think he'll need to. So, for what it's worth to you, I give Air Hawk two thumbs up!
