Numb Bum Syndrome
on: June 16, 2015, 11:56:03 AM
Not sure if the recommendation came off this forum, but I've come across this saddle-addition

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MOTORBIKE-COMFORT-SEAT-PAD-NOT-GEL-TRIED-AND-TESTED-WORLD-WIDE-/351409719726?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item51d1a6c9ae

Given I'm off on my 3000m Euro-tour this weekend, I thought at £30 its got to be worth a go?

On my final last leg of the journey - its Remich in Lux to Tenby in West Wales - in one hit!  That 1000kms from breakfast to supper time

Be interesting to see how the bum seat, the bike and my various bodily bits perform

I've done this run before - but last time it was on a RR6 FireBlade!

If you've done it on a Fireblade you could do it on a Crosstourer with thumb tacks sticking out of the seat  :169:
English is a tricky language - just consider the difference between "Free Alcohol" and "Alcohol Free".

Thats how it felt for the last 100 miles!

Surprisingly the FireBlade tours extremely well

For £25 that's got to be worth a punt Bert.

Airhawk R, accept no compromise, seriously though it's amazing, does what it says on the tin, numb bum eliminated

Maybe but at £170 for effectively a cushion?

At £25 the one I spotted has to be worth a go
