I live in southern UT . Bought a 2009 KLR650 Enduro bike with 1400mi on it. I paid an upholsterer to redo the seat, but he did a miserable job, so I ended up doing it myself, but I figure it was about a 100mi seat. In Jan I planned to go back , by motorcycle, to visit family in IA,MN, and WI. After reading reviews I decided to get the Airhawk-the med for my bike-I would never have made it if not for the Airhawk. My buddy and I left Jun 22nd and were back home in 8 days. The longest day was leaving Withee,WI and getting to Georgetown, CO above Denver (1117mi) in one day. I have to say , my ass was not sore ,but surprisingly comfortable after that brutal day. The next day we got up and rode home to Saint George-UT. I hope the marketing agents don't read this, because now they know they can charge whatever price they want for this gem of a seatpad. If I lose or break the one I have ,i would pay up to $500 for a new one, without it I will never go on a long trip. Love the product!!
