Is that the taxi driver bead seat your running there?
How well do rate them for long distance riding? With the bigger tank, I don't have to stop riding for about 200 miles before refuel and my ass would like
something between it and the seat.
I like the beads. They help a lot, but the seat is still a brick. The airflow through the beads makes a tremendous difference in butt comfort during long hot rides.
The beads were made for a pillion seat on a cruiser. I just took some measurements and ordered what I thought would work the best. If I remember correctly, they're 14 inches long and 10 inches wide.
In cooler weather, I use a Walmart ATV seat. It helps too, and it was less than 20 bucks.
