A few days ago I was trying to decide between a beadrider cover or an Alaskan leather cover. I ended up ordering the Alaskan leather cover. Shipping was super fast and the order process was nice and easy. I wish all online orders were this smooth. So I tried the seat pads out twice now. Last night I did around 40 miles of heavy stop and go city traffic. This morning I did 100 miles of twisty country roads. I gotta be honest I've noticed no difference in comfort. I still find myself trying to get comfortable after 30 minutes in the saddle. Do the seat pads break in? Do I need to do something to it? I gotta say I'm a little disappointed. I bought a pad for pillion and driver and my wife didn't notice any appreciable difference in comfort either.
