Re: New seat or Airhawk?
I'm a true believer in the AirHawk seat comfort. But, after 4 or 5 years of use I can't keep it patched. The weld along the front edge of the rubber bladder deteriorates and I have had no success sealing it.
I was about to spring for another AirHawk when I spotted a $15 gel cushion at Costco ("Cool Cushion" Item # 501080). It's design for car seats, but fits rather well on both driver and passenger seat of the K1200LT. The bike has a Corbin aftermarket seat.
I didn't expect much for $15, but both the wife and I like it. Usually after a 200 miles, I start squirming with "monkey butt", but with these cushions we did two, 400 mile days with very little discomfort.
