  1. Has anyone used an airhawk seat and if so, was it any good? My Guzzi seat is really pretty good, but after 500kms my behind needs a massage!!

  4. I am the FarRider guy, I don't use mine now as I am mostly happy with the stock 1400GTR seat. However I used mine for over 80,000 in the last 2yrs on my other bike my 1000GTR Kawasaki and I LOVE it.

  9. Yeah, finding someone to do the job can be a problem.

    Thanks all - might give the Airhawk people a call. Are the seats custom fitted to particular models and do they come off for washing etc?

  10. on the cheap

    Airhawk is exxy on the price though.

    One cheaper solution is to unpick the seat covering a little, hop over to Clark rubber, and buy some foam for yoga mats, about 10 mm thick, and add that to the top of the exist foam. Reattach the cover with some staples, and You can ride twice as far easily, for about $10.

    Reshaping most seats a little seems to work as well. A flatter wider seat provides a greater area for your cheeks to rest.

  11. Hi, I am the Airhawk Guy.

    I introduced the Airhawk motorcycle cushions to Australian motorcyclists in Septmber 2000. They are designed with patented medical technology and are light years ahead of gel or foam. They improve circulation and absorb vibration, two major issues for motorcyclists. But don't listen to me, put one to the test and decide yourself with our Risk Free Trial!

  17. Go and see GEORGE at DELINI LEATHERS. He's a good mate of mine and crazy bout bikes. He can do anything with leathers, and is a pro at customizing seats too, so he can do whatever u want. my seat got done, multilayer foam, it looks the same but is cushy. He's on the corner of sydney road and gaffney st, coburg, in the big blue shop. usually there after hours too..
