Thinking of getting an airhawk. Just wondered what size people would recommend for the tranny? Thankyou please!:blob2:
Good point Shack the airhawk does reduce your legs a little, it also means I get a little more buffeting over the screen- this was acceptable for the comfort.Putnams if you want value for money (see my product review) came across if on a BMW heavy site (don't shoot)
But if you have the cash, medium should fit (remember not everyone gets on with them, and I hope your legs will still be long enough to reach the ground )
Nice! Enduring image! Might try the ol lambskin before forking out for the hawk. Wheres Lambland?I invested £10 in a sheepskin from 'Lambland'....works well but the dye tends to run a bit when wet, which is OK if you have black trousers but gives a brown stain around the arse region if they're beige - a little unfortunate as it gives the impression of some over zealous cornering!
The shortening of the legs would work in my favour! The buffeting wouldn't increase as I've taken my tall screen off for that very reason. I just cop it in the chest now with the small screen! Might try the sheep skin 1st tho.Good point Shack the airhawk does reduce your legs a little, it also means I get a little more buffeting over the screen- this was acceptable for the comfort.
I looked at the sheepskin option but as the bike lives outdoors and is ridden each day and left out in the rain while working I could imagine the mess it would be in- would have to book it in for a wash and blow dry every few weeks.
I only put the airhawk on when I am doing long runs otherwise it lives in the topbox.
There are 2 versions of the airhawk. The most expensive is supposedly repairable with glue and patches.
Thanks tigerjohn I will give it a go. What product is it exactly? The nearest I could find in price was the pet rugs for £12.99.www.lambland.co.uk - based in N Devon and available online. White or black available at £11-99. Certainly a cheap alternative and cosy to sit on in your tent as well, but beware the black dye running when wet! I fix mine with a simple webbing belt from a pair of 'Craghoppers' which runs under the seat - quick and easy to remove.
That’s the problem I would have with fitting sheepskin also liable to get some chav git nicking it when the bike is parked outside work.I looked at the sheepskin option but as the bike lives outdoors and is ridden each day and left out in the rain while working I could imagine the mess it would be in- would have to book it in for a wash and blow dry every few weeks.
