I used one with my V Star 1300 and the Potato Chip seat. It saved my tailbone on long rides. I've got the medium size. Haven't ridden the CTX for an extended distance since buying the bike last week. I've still got my Airhawk. I've found that using minimal air gets the best results when using the Airhawk. Too much air and it will feel like being on a waterbed.

My wife and I, both, ride distance stuff on the AirHawk 2. We love it. So much nicer than some of the other options, and, we don't have to buy another seat. The original seat is comfy for short hauls, but, the AirHawk makes the longer stuff last all day. We have used gel, covers/sheepskin, air pads, and even a memory foam floor mat from BBB cut in half. I like that it does not raise my position like a lot of others, due to the amount of air in the cells. I use a couple puffs and am good to go. The wife, 100 pounds soaking wet, has a little more air. She likes that it is adjustable for the changes during the ride, it elevates her nearly to the level of the Mustang on the VTX1300 so she can see...especially when I am feeling frisky and punching 80mph on a twisty road.

I have one coupled with a Utopia backrest -- just did 1,600 miles in 5 days -- no significant discomfort issues.

Inflatable seat cushion

I was going for Airhawk,but decided on a Danmedicasouth one and purchased it from Mistervisor.
It does make distance riding more acceptable,however after 5months it has developed a leak and I am having problems getting it sorted.
Apparently the Airhawk is made by the same company only in a different colour.

Keep your knees in the breeze.
If you want to do it do it now.

The medium is 14x14 , I thought I measured like 12" front to back on our seats, or does the shape go around the center area ?

I'll take a picture of my Air Hawk on the stock seat tomorrow and post to this thread.

Thumbs up

A couple of years ago my crew and myself were on an extended week long ride. I had an Airhawk, They did not. When the complaints of sore arses began to arise...I offered my Airhawk. It got to the point where at every fuel stop the Airhawk got passed off to the next sore arse in line.
This years annual road trip saw every last rider in the group with one. Not one sore arse in the bunch this year.
