Underwear comfort ?

Not sure if this is the correct 'section' to post in but...has anyone tried cycling shorts or some other kind of padded underwear for riding. I find that the seat on my 2011 just kills my 'prostate' when riding ! It's very sore just where the seam of my riding jeans digs in just behind my 'boys ! Any advice guys ? This is spoiling my enjoyment of my Wee....H.

I love the smell of wd40 in the morning.

I have tried it last year, and liked it, in the beginning of the summer, before I was used to ride 6-7 hours in a day.

LDComfort.....little bit more pricey than bike shorts, but well worth it.

What I use is triathlon shorts. Not as much padding as regular cycling shorts, but just enough, it is a compromise that that sport requires

I always wear bicycle shorts under my pants on long rides, raises the comfort level a notch. I wear regular shorts with the chami in the crotch.

It helps for long rides wearing the cyclist shorts with the padding. I did that on my GSXR on a long trip, helped out a lot, but that bike still wasn't anything but painful on the 8-9 hour days.
