Airhawk seat cushion

I have a 1993 GL 1500 Aspencade. I'm thinking very long and hard about a Airhawk seat cushion. For those that have them and used them in the past is it worth the money. And what model (size) did you get.

yep I have one, they work great, it can be fiddly to get the amount of air required in them, too much and you move all over the place on the seat, not enough, and it just doesn't change the monkey butt at all.

Once right, there is still a bit of movement under you, but its easy to get used too, and they do a great job, of keeping things cool.

they do alter the height of the seat a little as well.

I've tried them all. Like the Beadrider the best.

I have had my Airhawk 3 years. I have never had to adjust it since finding the right setting, thats how good it is, never leave home without it.

I had an 1100 Spirit - same issue. Same result. Made a world of difference! Wish I hadn't let the Airhawk go when I sold the 1100.

I just ordered an Airhawk R for my 1800 for a long trip.

Shop around to get the best prices.

Used the Airhawk on my 750 as well. Haven't used it on the 1500, but plan to on my next Arkansas tour.
