PostSubject: Hello again...   Tue Feb 06, 2018 3:39 am

Hi all, I’m a returning member, I forgot my ID and have a different e-mail now. So, after a break of a couple of years I just signed up with a new account.
 My ride is a 2007 Silver Wing, I bought it new and it now has 46k miles. In the last several years I’ve completed 2 Saddle Sore 1,000 (Iron Butt Association) rides and an 8 day 10 State 2,300 mile vacation from Southern California to Yellowstone WY.
  I hope to increase my knowledge of my ride through the forum, and if possible offer my knowledge when I can. I also own a 2013 Honda PCX150.

Hello Tcrichard. Welcome back to the forum. Thank you for your introduction. Nice to hear that we have another IBA member here too.

When your ability to PM kicks in (after 7 posts IIRC) please PM me your old forum screen name and I will try to merge your two accounts.

Tim

Hello Tcrichard

Welcome back! Another long distance rider! What kind of saddle bags do you have on your Swing? I am going to invest in a set and like the looks of yours.

Thanks cosmic_jumper, I’ll keep that in mind.

2wheelgal I have the Tourmaster Elite saddlebags with matching tail bag. I love them, they have lots of room. I like that they open to the side, makes it easy to get to whatever you have in there.

I like that seat on the PCX.  I have one that I got for my wife along with my silverwing.  Is that one of the seats that you can order custom from Thailand?  The OEM seat sucks on this little bike.

I am interested in the brand of seat too. You are right, the stock seat on Silverwing could be a lot more comfortable, especially for someone like me with long legs. I removed to drivers butt pad, still not that much better. With the butt pad removed, now I have the brackets left on the seat which are less than visually appealing.

About the PCX Seat, I bought in on E-Bay. I don’t know what brand or where it came from. There are no tags on it. It is much more comfortable then the OEM seat. I use an Air Hawk R seat pad on the Silver Wing, nothing better. I’ll look at my eBay account and see if I can dig up anymore information.

Thanks for the quick reply Tcrichard! I would love to have a Corbin, always had them on my Goldwings, but they are soooo expensive! I just purchased and received an Airhawk R seat pad, going to put that on my Swing this afternoon and take a ride to see how it feels. I'm sure it will take a little adjusting to get the best fit/feel.

You’ll love the Airhawk R. Just add a little bit of air at a time. If you’ve never used one before, you may be surprised at how little air it takes to be most comfortable. Enjoy!
