I understand the bony butt think, an inexpensive try is that Walmart waffle
/gel pad, $20.00 might save you a lot of discomfort. And you can put two pads in one cover if needed. I cut a U shape out of the front so it don't stick up so far in front.

Diamond Seat, rest stops every hour to an hour and a half, wallyworld gel pad and working up to endurance riding. I resorted to the gel pad after back to back 550 days. How I would do riding that distance solo, who knows? Now I remember how bad the stock seat is having to put it back on until my Diamond comes back.

So we went riding for a few hours yesterday and I had numb butt by the time we got back. So what do you all do on long distance rides? I tires the highway pegs but it really didn't help much. I'm thinking stops when it get to tough but I'm sure with all the veteran riders here there is an answer.
Foot boards, highway pegs properly adjusted, Ortho Ultimate seat pad with sheep skin cover and Anti Monkeybut Powder. Add someone to keep your back warm and XM set on the Clasic Vinyl station and I could ride forever. Oh yes, take your wallet out of your back pocket.

We went out for a few hours last Sunday and it felt much better. The butt thing wasn't an issue as bad this time. I'm learning to stretch at a stop which helped immensely. Now the new issue it the sweating while leaning on the back rest, I still think when I find the side car I want it will be much better. I'm sure at this point a lot of what I'm going through is just getting used to a big bike. In a year or by this summers end all I'm feeling will go away. :D

I took a look hot ride Saturday afternoon on all back roads and I'm finding it a lot easier to ride now. Guess I had to toughen up the old butt toughened a little. Now I'm finding out the back get real wet from sitting a long time but I guess I'll get used to this too. I like it more every time I get to ride it. Cool! :D

Nohandles,
Son, you're a hot mess! I suggest you take a 500 mile roadtrip on a 250-500cc with a dead flat seat and poor rear shocks (if any). Then your Wing seat will feel like you're parking your narrow *ss on a cloud! I'm a fellow member of the "Where did my *ss go?" club.

I like the bead seat covers over wool more than just wool itself when it's warm; wool alone when cool. And of course the wool INSIDE the undies if cold. Really not a cool look though, especially when it hangs out front and back, as I recently learned during a trip to Wal-Mart!

Completely right. We had a Honda 250 Rexlex and a 1971 BMW R75 both butt killers for sure. But I've lost 127 lbs so the ole butt just aint what she used to be? LOL. I'm learning! :D

+1 on beaded seat cover in heat and sheepskin in cold. Try sitting on a gel seat cover in 105 degree temps and your fanny will be on fire. Gel gets heated to the ambient temperature. Beaded cover ventilates the butt and keeps it cool.

I prefer sheep skin year round...in the summer it helps keep your arse from sticking and swetting from the vinyl seat...and in the winter keeps it warm....:D

So, Tatanka; why were you wearing the wool inside your undies at Wal-Mart?

I think the butt is there now. Went 500 miles in the last 2 weeks and the butt can take it now. Guess it just took some getting used to. Once I learned the bike it became a piece of cake even the wife is happy now. Got love the Wing!
