WOW! Errrr I know that no one sees what's under your trousers but knowing that I look like a Baboon's ass with those bad boys on might put me off.

I'm sure they do help though, thanks for sharing.

I have similar padded shorts made specifically for motorcycle riders.
Moto-Skiveez
They come in stretch forward, sit upright, or cruiser style seating positions.
And the padding is on the inside! :laugh2:

Lol the padding is on the inside in these too.

Dave, give them a try. They won't stand out much (a lot less than the d3O armour on your knees).

It is amazing the difference they make.

I use the Air Hawk inflatable cushion, which works well provided you adjust the air pressure just right. I had some padded cycle pants, but when it's 30C plus out, I just ended with a sweaty crutch. Nasty, nasty.

sheepskin

Sheepskin is an absolute backside saver. Got an off cut when I had my 1150GS from a place called Lambland in Devon I think, £10 at the time. A natural wonder material - if you're doing the miles it's well worth it. It was discussed at length on ukgser.com and at £10 I thought it was worth a try, worked for me.

Just ordered a real sheepskin cover for the Turbane. Lambland supply good long pile sheepskins with the natural oils, so they last for ages. I'll probably bond a closed cell foam to the underside to give more lift and comfort too.
I'll stitch some good grade elastic webbing to it to secure it to the existing seat. I used similar on my Ducati and it was surprisingly comfortable.
