I am having some issues with lower back and leg pain. Looking at buying a Airhawk R cushion. The website advises a medium cruiser size and Wingstuff told me to buy the large. I have a 2014 Goldwing with stock seat. I am hoping to be more comfortable with sciatica on cushion than on seat for long rides. Would like to know what you all think of their cushions and what size to get in the new R model. Do you actually strap it on your bike seat or just lay it on seat?
I've had one for a few years. And use it when I feel the need. One thing to remember is that you don't need a lot of air in them. And I don't strap mine on, but I do put it in the trunk when I'm stopped and away from the bike.

I bought the large heavy duty air hawk several years ago and love it. Fits the seat perfectly. I do not strap mine on and it doesn't slip at all. Again, as previously stated, use very little air. You may have to tweak it a couple times to get it just right.
I have Air Hawk larger one and I place it under those strap/hook on beads. I have pain in the top of my butt cheeks. I have difficult time riding thru a full tank of gas. My legs or back do not limit me but my arass does. I can do 500-600 mi days but I got get off and get the feeling n pain from butt well before I burn out full tank gas (approx 200+ mi).
The Air Hawk position I like is pulled forward leaving less pressure on the area that touches the stock backrest and stock seat. I have highway pegs that let me stretch legs out and actually push me up in the seat and takes pressure off that area described above.
I hear riders talk about a gel foam Walmart product that is $20 vs Air Hawk $150 +/-. You may try that before making bigger investment.
