I, too, had the bead mat from Wingstuff. The air flow was great on those hot day rides, and the multi bead surface allowed for easy shifting around on the seat. I didn't need more padding, just a different interface between me and the vinyl. The beads are black painted wood. The years have taken their toll so I'm ready for a replacement. Wish they made them with ceramic beads.

snowmoer Another lover of the Air Hawk. Use the large size also. I could only stand to ride my 2012 for one tank of gas then I had to get off for a good long rest. I put the Air Hawk on and can now go from tank to tank to tank without stopping other then for a bathroom break. I put on 600-800 mile days and am ready to repeat the next day on my long trips. No way I could do this on the stock seat.

As others have said, you just need a little air to get your bones off the seat just a little. It also takes a little getting used to sitting a little higher in the seat. I do not use mine for short rides or running around town. I can stand the stock seat for that. I just use it for long multi day trips or all day rides.

I agree. We were at the Honda Hoot and Airhawk let us test ride ride them. What used to be a sore but after a few hours turned into a relaxing 5 hour ride.
The vendor showed us how to adjust the air pressure. Just enough to conform to your backside without actually lifting you on the seat. Takes the pressure off your tailbone and allows air to circulate.
It does take little while to get used to.
