Airhawk Motorcycle Cushion
The Airhawk coushion seating system has
been thrashed and tested to extreme. In this podcast Andy
describes how the Airhawk system works, how it fits, comfort
and health problems it alleviates and whether it deserves the
hype as the best motorcyle comfort accessory.
I've used an Airhawk for ovber 70,000k's now. Around 30,000
k's on a Harley Davidson Wideglide and over 40,000 and counting
on a BMW R1200GS.
The trick is to not overinflate the cushion. Simply inflate
the Airhawk with your mouth seal up the inlfator screw and
throw it on your bike. Jump on and slowly let the air out until
you are supported off the seat by only a few millimetres.
The object it get a small air buffer between your butt and
the seat. You should be able to "slide" around on the seat with
the Airhawk cushion acting as an air memebrane seperating you
from the actual seat.
In the Audio Review below:
After a trip to Alice Springs we get the impressions
of a large pillion rider who shared the ride on two
BMW R1200GS’s. One with an Airhawk fitted to the pillion seat
and one without. This ride also saw an Airhawk get shared
between several riders on different bikes and their
impressions. If you’ve ever thought of buying an
Airhawk you better listen to this Audio Review.

You can see how the Airhawk
Motorcycle Cushion fits for both the rider and the
Sore bum? you’ll find one! The Airhawk Cushions
fit almost everything form M.V. Augusta, Aprilia, BMW,
Buell, Ducati, Harley, Honda, Indian, Kawasaki, KTM Moto Guzzi,
Suzuki, Triumph, Victory, Yamaha and almost every model and
probably a few others.

This sounds perfect. I commute daily on a sports bike and
find that Sydney roads literally pain in the butt. The Airhawk
sounds like a great way to soften the riding experience without
painful or expensive fiddling of the suspension. Great review,
thanks. It takes the risk out of purchasing often expensive
biking accessories. CHEERS !
