Seat Pads

Anyone try those universal gel seat pads? It'd be a nice comfort item for weekend trips. Only issue I can see would be slipping/weight shifting while leaned over. But if you're doing that, your but should be off the seat anyways.

For around $55, might be money well spent. I also see those Airhawk seats for around $140, really that much better?

I have one and it works pretty good. It takes a little getting use to, but it happens pretty quick. I got this for a trip to AZ., but now that I'm concentrating more on MX and Supermoto, I really don't have much call for it. If you want it, I'll let it go for $50.00 shipped to your door.

I embedded a 3/4" Gel slab + 1/2" Memory Foam into my seat a couple of years ago. Helps on long rides.

Hasbeen, PM sent.

MMike, stand-up job on the seat! Definitely a much cleaner look than a pad. How's it held up to now?

Thanks Andrew. So far it seems to have held up great. I guess to know for sure I would have to take it apart, but no sign of it shrinking up or anything (at least externally). I may re-cover my seat later this year and take a peek.
