As a long time road cyclist, I second that.. I always wear two pairs of padded shorts when I ride my bicycle these days.. no offence to Lance, but I like to keep my balls, and they are worth far more than $100 pair of bicycle shorts to me.
I also stand up on my LC4 Adventure every few miles when I ride long distance, no just stand up and sit back down, but stand for a whole mile if you could.. lean into the wind, straighten out the knees, hop on one peg.. don't just sit on the bike..
