Default Aihawk Seat Cushions

We just started selling these and I'm wondering what experiences (if any) you have had with them. Are they useful on an ST or is it more for the cruiser crowd?

They help, but getting them just right is a bit of an issue and in the long run were not near as effective for me as a custom seat. Also did not care for the extra seat height with it on. Everyone is different though, some swear by them.

Default Aihawk Seat Cushions

I have an AirHawk II seat installed on my ex-cop ST1300A with the stock seat on it. It works ok for me, and the fact that it is easily inflated or deflated can help quite a bit if need be. I keep mine about half way inflated. Rode with on yesterday about 200 miles and never squirmed much at all.

So true, was following a Corvette on a long, lonely straight on the way to Avila Beach, Cali who was doing 90 plus, he must have seen me in his rear view mirror and dropped the speed to 60ish as I passed him doing 80ish...

Surprisingly he never passes me as I slowed to a safe 70ish speed the rest of the way, some 15 miles.

I used a borrowed one for my SS1000 Iron Butt ride many years ago. I thought it worked well. If nothing else you can take it out and put it back periodically to vary the pressure points. Having said that, I've always been amazed and discouraged by how expensive they are. Would never buy one personally.

I used one once. It blew off during a gas stop and I decided that I didn't like it that much anyway.

I had already determined that I was going to get rid of my POS Corbin seat and I was going to get a Russell.

The Russell was so much better that I didn't feel the need to add an Airhawk again.

YMMV,
