Re: Seat woes

It's generally accepted that the wood-ass over at Mother Honda's seat development office is, well, a wood-ass.

I've run the stock saddle, a Corbin and a Sargent. Because I tend to ride balls-to-tank, the two aftermarket saddles didn't really help me a whole lot; their comfort zones lay out back where the seat is wider (not where I'm riding most of the time). Plus, the dished shape of the custom saddles takes precious leg room away from me - not good, as I'm a leggy 6'3'.

So for the past couple of months I've been back to the stock, aesthetically pleasing, but painful seat. I'm going to try some sort of strap-on ( make your own joke there, lol! ). Here are the choices. I'd like to know if anyone has experience with these products, good or bad - or are there other products I ought to consider.

TIA.

Do a search for the AIRHAWK. 2OHOH2 has one and swears by it.
