So last time I had written I was in my first season (in Wisconsin we have two seasons; riding season and winter) with my new AirHawk R cushion. At the time I was excited for the prospect of a solution to my road weary ass. Having ridden with it for several seasons now I can honestly say it does the job for which it was intended and does it damn well. The inevitable burning/ painful ass on the FZ1 right about 200 miles no longer presents itself. I will not ride without it. Last summer I went overseas and rode through Germany, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland and my AirHawk was right “behind” me making sure my mind was on the Alps and not my aching butt. If you’re riding and your ass is hurting’ congratulations you finally found the solution.
