    I Just got an Amphibious Softseat (Large) by Hepco Becker. This air cushion seat pad has made all the difference for me. I love my Griso but have always found the seat to be somewhat uncomfortable. What I like about it is it self-inflates if you open the valve and lift off of it, then close the valve. I can do it while I’m riding. On curvy roads I deflate it to give good contact with the bike. On straightaways I’ll reinflate it for comfort. Wish I’d bought this years ago.

    Has anyone else had experience with this accessory? Or anything similar?

    Also, might as well say that my luggage is Hepco & Becker C-Bow Luggage. The C-Bow mounts were very easy to install, and the semi-rigid bags are great. They hold a lot, look great, and don’t interfere with my passenger’s legs.

    The bags are Hepco & Becker Sport Soft Bags,

    The Griso I can ride 14 hrs in a day as long as I take breaks every 90 minutes or so. with a little "standing" on the pegs on quiet straight roads.

    For my V11 Lemans the legs give out due to the high pegs I decided to raise the seat with a Alaskan Sheepskin seat cover long hair ($80 or so). I was surprised at how much more comfortable the seat was -- I was just looking for a little less knee bend.
