Yeah, I've tried bike riding shorts and those akin to them. Pretty worthless IMHO for long, multi-day m/c rides. And I ride a road bicycle.

I've yet to encounter an oem seat that works for me and have always resorted to Russell saddles. I still use these shorts though on multi-day long trips. The only time I haven't liked them is when temps are above 90F. Then they're a bit too warm.

Long retirement ride, eh? Cool. Are you also going to the MOA National rally in Salem OR? I am.

BTW, if I ever get the opportunity to meet the design crew at BMW in Germany, I'm gonna throw them a beat down with a ball pein hammer, especially the seat makers...

I'm gonna order a pair from aerostich since I get 10% off for being an MSF instructor. Thanks for the swift reply!

I'll post my opinions about these shorts from the road.
