Airhawk seat pad.
« on: June 11, 2018, 17:05:19 »
Hello all. What type or style of airhawk cushion fits a vstrom ( riders seat)? There are cruiser, sport etc pads and small, medium and large too. Best fit for a 14 Veek.
I've had two seats now, shad comfort and an oe Suzuki tall seat but still I get this tail bone pain. Comes on about 100-150 mile mark. Thought the tall seat would sort it but its no better really so was thinking about an airhawk.

Seriously try a bit of dead sheep...

Not a leg of lamb.
A bit of sheep skin rug.

I got 2 'bike seat covers' from LambLand.co.uk
About 20 each. Makes a world of difference and doesn't feel like I'm floating on a lilo like the AirHawk things.

After a long ride last weekend the sheep skin rug option looks great - how did you fix it in place?

Sewed a little adjustable strap on it that goes under the seat.
I've had one on all my bikes at some point.

Makes a huge difference.
I brush it from time to time.

Cheers - I get the needle and thread out (and buy SWMBO a gin and tonic).

Sheep skin is tough. You'll need a decent needle and a thimble too.
