Hey, my ST1300 seat is starting to sag (27,000 miles), and the raw sheepskin we threw over it no longer solves all my "nether region" problems as it once did.... on the way back from Nova Scotia, I was seized by genius and put my blowup pillow under the sheepskin...... worked fine until it punctured, but, boy, what comfort!

Heard nothing but good things about the Airhawk, and I wanna get one.... anyone know of a good place to get these? They're spendy, up to $180(!), but they beat heck out of a $700 Russell Day-Long seat......any help appreciated.....

If you get one, keep us posted.... I liked my (cheap) air cushion too but couldn't keep it holding air so I have shied away from the airhawk for fear of the same (probably not true?).. maybe it actually will hold air for at least a day...

You know CJ, I had a blow up thing in college that... wait, that was something else altogether.

There is a thread on here somewhere (I'm not real good at finding that stuff yet) that was discussing air cushions, not sure if it was Air Hawk or not. Seems like there were samples being sent out to try. Might be worth a forum search.

That's what we paid (each) for ours. I ordered them direct from the manufacturer. I figure, if something does go wrong with them (they have a 2 year guarantee) I don't have to worry about being jerked around by some (fly-by-night) middleman. Be careful though, there are two models. One is cheaper than the other. The AirHawk told me that the cheaper one is not as durable as the more expensive one and has less of a warranty. So, if you do find one cheaper, make sure it is the one you want - not the lesser model.

They are a bit tricky to set up, but they are really nice after you do.

Hey CJ, you might just go to a medical supply shop and get one of those little inner tubes they sell. Might even be cheaper to go to Les Schwab and get a lawn mower inner tube. I've heard you old fellows need that kind of help.
