To Airhawk or not...

...to Airhawk... that is the question!

Has anyone tried the Airhawk - cruiser, size small on the Bobber by any chance?

I have a few different sizes of airhawk(s).
It’s a resounding NO from me. I just could not get along with it no matter how much (or how little) air I used. The trick is to use as little as possibe, but I always felt seasick when using it. Horrible and doesn’t work (for me).

Airhawks serve a good purpose, but they are very expensive. I bought one several years ago and ended up using it at work more than on my bike and over time the thin walled air pockets started wearing through and after many patch attempts, some good some not, I threw it on the used gear pile. Last summer I bought a copy cat air pad on amazon, didn't even have a name, for less than half the cost of an Airhawk. It claimed thicker membrane, and it is, and I used it on my Texas to Alaska trip last fall. It literally saved my arse. Highly recommend for extended trips. As far as daily use on a Bobber, probably not worth the trouble. If you plan to take your Bobber out of town an air pad would probably worth taking along. The key is to run as little air as possible to just give your rear a layer of air between it and the seat. As eisen77 pointed out, even with minimal air you can get the sensation of swaying, I got used to it but it can be a bit annoying.

Noooo...I'm sure they work great but when you get off everyone will think you've got piles!!!

For similar money you could do it old school and get a sheepskin cover or if you're regularly doing big miles buy a Corbin seat by all accounts they're super comfy and they look cool too.
