Here's one that's available.

Thanks for that, i'll give it a try too. Ordered now :) Should complement the mighty shad nicely. This will be the third add-on i'll have tried after the tucano seat cover and bumbags4bikers. Worth a punt for a tenner...

We've done Normandy to home in 1 day. That was hard but over 500 miles in 1 day. You just need to mentally prepare yourself but can be done. Helped on a bigger bike too.

Nearly 400 was enough for me.

Same on my r1200rt a few years back. Calais to Vienne (south of Lyon) around 500 miles in a day. Took me 9 hours with a few breaks.
The Airhawk seat cushion (bought off eBay, used for £70) assisted superbly.
No arse disasters :lol:

However, on my Burger travelling to S. France, I tended to cover no more than 350 per day. Anymore seemed to be pushing it icon_thumbs_up.gif

I am curious about the Airhawks too but the price point scares me off. Beads are cheap and cheerful if they work. If not, i might try the airhawk at some point too. I will need to renew my trousers and jacket before that kind of expense though as they are getting on
