I got my Airhawk in 2003 for a trip out West as far as Montana. We put on 3300 in 11 days. The Airhawk truly did save my ass on such long ride days. I have a sciatic nerve problem & would never have been able to go on this trip without my Airhawk! We easily put on 200 miles in at least one weekend a month in our riding season of 5-7 months. My original 'Hawk just bit the big one. Pretty damn fantastic for 13 years later! Trust me, I've sung the praises of this item over the years to anyone who would listen! It's finally time for Hawk #2!
