Sweet Cheeks Seat Support

I have been working on this for about a year. Keeping it simple was the hard part. http://cycle-analyst.com/sweetcheeks

Folds up smaller than a pack of cigarettes and can be refilled at any store or gas station with 2 liter bottles.

$24.95 includes shipping and handling

That looks pretty slick. Has anyone (besides Dualsport) tried these?

Yes, someone has. I need to search better...

Covering my butt on this one. I figure someone will try hauling gasoline without it secured and loose a bottle into the rear wheel at 90mph.

It doesn't matter how idiot proof it's built, somewhere there's a better idiot.

I will have a large box of sweet cheeks at the AMA Renfro Valley dualsport ride this month. Bring your own 2-liters.

shows great promise

Good thinking, Dualsport, really good thinking.
I am going out to measure the seat on my Husky.
If someone manufactured DOT approved 2 liter gasoline bottles, it would be even cooler.

MSR bottles are of excellent quality and fine for carrying gasoline (can be used in some of the muti-fuel cookstoves that MSR manufactures), but the largest size they come in is 33oz, roughly 2/3 the diameter of a 2l bottle. I foresee a fitment issue.

Thumb Air Pumps

I have found a supplier of 2 liter pressure pumps. I tested several and found one that is almost no larger than just the cap. It holds pressure without leaking and is cheap. This allows the sweet cheeks bottles to be pumped tight and still left empty to prevent bouncing on the trails.
WooHoo, these things make a dirt bike seat feel like a Goldwing.

Website is gone. What is a "sweet cheeks"?
It sounds like a seat pad that holds gas?

It's a canvas or nylon dealie that straps over a dirtbike seat. It has pockets to hold two liter pop bottles paralell to the seat making it wider and putting some weight on your thighs and less on your sensitive bits. I think the idea was you could tune the firmness you wanted by how much water you put in. I don't think gas would be a good idea that close to the muffler.
I'd like to have one, those of us with TE610's could use something until we get our renazco's built.

This has been getting some play over on ThumperTalk, and there is current ordering information on the thread:

http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=655418

You can see my post on the third page, but I'll briefly say here that combined with an AirHawk, this is pretty much the best thing ever for long rides on a bike with a narrow seat.
