I agree with the Alaskan pad. They are really nice, in hot or cold weather. .

Well, we've been on a couple more long rides. He wore his new helmet and bicycle shorts. That vastly improved his comfort. I mentioned the Alaskan pad to him, but he thinks the bicycle shorts do enough for his comfort. He is leaving for his freshman year in college next week and decided to wait until May 2020 to do the Iron Butt. I'll bump this thread up then if it happens.

I've never done rides just for distance but I've had several 6-8 hr drives on my versys and the air hawk mad those possible, that seat is just HARD. the riding position is fine I do put an extension on the top of my windscreen to decrease the sound blast from the stock and even the mra aftermarket plain windscreen, I think its the mra version of the clip on. I keep it lowered for less than 50 mph and bump it up for highways. As a plus when I'm doing dirt roads I tilt it so it catches the wind and it directs wind directly to my body for cooling.

Glad he got a comfy helmet, that is key. As the king of the big, mishaped head club, I can suggest HJC helmets. They make some (CL 17, Modular IS Max 2 and more I am sure) that when you look at the description on Revzilla, they specifically show it as for a very round head, NOT an oblong head. I started with a CL 16 and now have the Modular and every one has been perfect for me in my 3XL shape. Only bad about the supersized helmets is they are only DOT rated. Oh well, I will take comfort over perhaps a slight cut in safety.

Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!
