I got the Alaska sheepskin, and it helps you go a tad longer, but I really don't feel it's the answer. It does help however. I really think you have to get used to the pain somewhat and get your ass conditioned to take it for long periods of time. Maybe the Corbin will be the answer, dunno, but I think your ass will hurt with one of those after a period of time too. I think with pretty much any bike you'll have seat problems, it's just to what degree. I'll be taking my second long trip in September using the Alaska sheepskin. I did ride 500 miles in 2 days recently with a trip to Michigan, and the sheepskin did seem to help deal with the seat. I took some breaks which help.
The Airhawk, I think you'll either hate it or love it. It's pricey, and you need to make sure you have the right amount of air in it for it to work successfully.
