Long ride comfort

Post by dmor1019 » Tue Aug 03, 2010 1:22 pm

It has been a while since I took a 2 or 3 day ride,(2001 actually on a GL 1500). My "new " bike now is a 1982 GL 1100. I have the stock seat and was wondering if anyone has suggestions on what they use to keep the tush comfortable :shock: when doing 600 or so mile days. Used to do bike shorts but wondering what others do,

Thanks folks :D

I got a beaded seat cover for the heat - it really helps prevent monkey butt and it isn't as hard as you would think. And I've got no ass to speak of. :P

I use a sheep skin,bought it at Ikea. doubled up is real nice. The wool wicks away moisture and lets air through,no monkey butt.It helps me do 10-12 hrs in the saddle at a time.oh ya floorboards help alot
