Hi Eric and  :401:

You don't say which model you have. I have a Gen2 XRx with the comfort seat and it is probably one of the comfiest I have ever used.

These are pretty good on very long trips

Or even just some seamless running boxers from the likes of Decathlon, the lack of seams make a big difference IMO

Used an Airhawk on my KTM 690 and done over 2000 miles in week, found it really good just don't over-inflate it.
