Hey guys! I just received an airhawk motorcycle seat pad in the mail yesterday. The company makes hospital beds so they know a little about keeping people comfortable in one position for long periods of time :p . For only 100$ I think it makes a huge difference! Much better than the 300$ "comfort" seat from Yamaha! Now if you plan on getting one, I think the "cruiser r small" is a tad too small. I checked their website with measurements and bought what I thought would be best. Happy riding! - Ty

I have used an Air Hawk for many commutes between Albuquerque and Phoenix. My only complaint, which is pretty minor, is if you have significant elevation changes, you will need to adjust the air pressure to stay comfy. Other than that, they are a butt saver on the longer trips!

Way too much drama for me, inflate, deflate, I'd rather focus on more exciting things to do while mapping out vectors when engaged in terrorizing mode 'T'.

I hear (for some reason) complaints about this OEM product. I've had mine since I purchased my '10' and I couldn't be more happy with it in comparison to the OEM original. Plus, it looks very cool, and we all know that 50% of everything must be cool! :smile2:

Why not try it out. If you don't like it at least you gave it a shot and move on to something different.

On 400+ mile trips on an R1, a little air maintenance is definitely not drama. Around town or on a trip up some mountain roads, a comfort seat is not needed.

I just don't feel like spending 330$ on a seat. Plus I like the looks of the stock one over the comfort

Just ordered the Yamaha comfort seat. I commute up to 65 miles each way in traffic in a day, and didn't want to deal with a blow-up cushion. $287 OTD, with some tactical persuasion with the dealer. Only bad thing, it's back-ordered until 08-21-17. I guess my butt's gonna stay sore a little longer. :frown2:

Frequent breaks are the trick, although if you're commuting it will suck having to extend the trip by 25% or whatever it might work out to be.


Did that on one of my buddies bikes that i borrowed for a week, wasn't fun but got the job done.

I must have extra padding on the area that matters since this is the first seat in about the last four bikes owned I didn't feel the need to change.

I ride a road bike, (bicycle), and I can stay on that for 3 hours before I even think about my @rss end. 1 hour on this, I'm done.
