My butt hurts. I have a GL1100 and when I ride a long distance I get a sore butt. I have been looking into getting a seat pad and don't know what type to get. I read pros and cons for each type of pad. What have you tried and what do you use? Keep in mind I have more butt then most people.

Ever saw these? A combination of gel and sheepskin. Motorcycle Gel Seat Pads, Cruiser Luggage and Covers Kit

The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike.

Yes I have seen the combination and it seems that sheep skin offers breathability and gel officers cushioning. might be ideal but so many say gel doesn't work

Where is the best place to get a sheepskin cover?
A real sheepskin cover.
I want to only cover the pillion seat.

From a real sheep maybe? Give Taffy a call, he lives in sheep country.

I have a $9.95 gel pad that I got at Canadian Tire on sale with a sheepskin over it. I find it the ultimate in comfort. Like sitting on the couch.
