What size Airhawk suits the Silverwing? Did any of you get one for the passenger seat as well? A happy passenger brings a happy ride !!

I bought the Medium and it works fine. I don't worry about the passenger as she won't ride on it anyway. Sad

My wife had the pillion, but, switched to the medium cruiser....it is a little large for the back seat, but, it does not matter when it comes to comfort.

I beg to differ as we say over here. I have the Airhawk Cruiser Medium, and once the novelty wore off during my Burgman 400 days, I realised it was just another piece of kit that I thought I needed to have, then quickly realised I didn't. It was more useful when I had an over tall Biondi and built up the cushion to look over it rather than cut down the screen

I didn't have the Airhawk under my porcelain white and cutely dimpled butt cheeks on that long day ride yesterday and I didn't suffer at all.

So it's in my garage in the Airhawk box, in a brand new cover, and I have a spare new cover and a set of straps for it. A testimony to an old mans farkling whims. Neutral

My take....after lots of miles.....get your butt in shape. I thought SilverWing seat fine, as well as Burgman 400. My current CB300F has hard, very basic seat, 10,000 miles since late Oct.=it works fine.

Secret for me is : Long distance/long hours ride simply get off the bike every 50 miles or one hour. Give the old body a break...wakes you up,too. And No underwear in summer. Winter loose fit Long Underwear is ok.

Aw jeez. You're not going to resurrect the topic of your crass predilection for riding combat again, are you now Mr Grinsel?

I use Bead Rider Deluxe. Looks painful but works great. Prevents hot spots and gives some airflow so no sticky shorts.

No problem for Mr. Grinsel. He will be sure to have his leather chaps on...much needed for riding combat. Whew! I thought we were gong to slip into an R rating for this post. Saved by the chaps. But be careful getting off every 50 miles to rest. Be sure to back away from everyone at the rest stop.

Only Idiots wear chaps on bikes/scooters. Hot weather I wear jeans----wet/cold Darien pants with long underwear, no jeans. Getting off every 50 miles or one hours works for me....but I have only ridden over 1.5 million miles....and still ride at least 30,000 miles a year.....Chattanooga is very boring place, with bad food, I like, need to get away as much as I can.

Not everyone has an iron butt. Either I need gas or food that's about all I'll stop for unless sight seeing.
Sometimes need to take a leak.  

Chaps those are for HD types. Black leather fits in with the rest of uniform. Coat, vest and boots.
Helmet-- We don't need no stinking  helmets. It blocks my vision and I can't hear my loud pipes.


Ride on

Yup. Chaps don't go well with my flip flops.

I have a Corbin on my Silverwing. It seems to work really well.
