"It doesn’t matter how good of a seat your motorcycle has, eventually there will be that one time it’s going to start to get a little bit uncomfortable or bother you."
There are many things you can do to make your motorcycle fit you better, and making your motorcycle more comfortable can improve your riding experience too. It doesn’t matter how good of a seat your motorcycle has, eventually there will be that one time it’s going to start to get a little bit uncomfortable or bother you.
Here are some effective ways to make your motorcycle seat more comfortable:
Change your seat
This is the most logical and obvious solution. But it can also be the most costly.
Changing your seat will give you a chance to make sure the seat is correct for your body type.
Take the time to research and make sure you are getting the seat that is best for you and your riding style.
Air Cell Cushion
An air cell cushion might be the most expensive one that you could buy, but they are very durable and will last you a long time.
These pads were inspired by the pads they use to make sure people don’t get bedsores in hospitals, so you can rest assured that they’ll be comfortable.
You can also customize how many air cells you want in this cushion.
There should be a small valve on the side that lets you decide how high you want to sit and how firm you want the seat.
Another popular type of motorcycle pad you could get is a gel pad.
Unlike the air cell pads, these are filled with gel which will help to distribute your weight a little more evenly across the seat.
They’re normally thick, heavy, and made of fabric. However, it will offer you more comfort than the hard motorcycle seats.
One easy way to ease the pain is to just take breaks now and then. Whenever you come to a stopping position, just stand up for a little bit.
If your motorcycle has back pegs, you could stand up on the back of those while you’re riding.
If you don’t feel comfortable standing up, you can try switching up your positions throughout the ride.
You can sit forward, left, right, or back to help distribute some of the pressure.
