Moto-Skiveez Adventure

Looking for more comfort, I recently replaced my seat with a Sargent and today ordered the Adventure Moto-Skiveez. Anyone else wearing these on long rides? Worth the money? Improve riding comfort? Hoping for no more monkey butt.

Yes. Yes! Yes!!!

The first long ride was last summer's 12 day ride through Oregon and California. I can't say you'll have no monkey butt, but it should be much better. At least it is for me.

I also picked up the Cruiser model this year to try. I think the Adventure model is better for the V2 and my butt.

Haven't tried them yet but we met the owner at a BMW event a couple of weeks ago at Laguna Seca. Nice guy. Everyone I've talked to that has them say they do make a difference. They're not cheep though.

On the advice of Seat Concepts, I tried some Russell compression shorts (lycra, mid thigh) and the monkey butt went away. 20 bucks at most sports stores.
