    Default gel cushion info needed for 22RT Please

    I bought the utopia backrest for my 22RT I need it to give me most support to lower back but wont go low enough. I was wondering if anyone tried these from saddle man or may know of other good one. Im thinking just lifting me up a little will help. https://saddlemen.com/saddlegel-gel-seat-comfort-pads-1 suggestions ?? thanks all

    Talk to Motorcycle Dave, one of our Sponsors here. Just click on his logo on the Home page or on his username alongside any of his posts. I doubt you'll get any 'better' result (or price?! ) elsewhere, and Dave supports the Forum too.

    I go along with Peter Aawen......MotorcycleDave is topnotch to deal with and does medical grade upholstery work. He may just have the perfect solution for you. Talk to him BEFORE you decide to try something else.

    I actually just got a Butt Buffer (large) in today for a trip I'm taking end of the week and like how it feels. I had tried an air hawk previously but didn't care for it (at various air fill volumes) and returned it - it chafed a bit on my legs and I felt like I moved around too much. I plan on putting a sheepskin on top of the butt buffer (should arrive in a couple of days). The butt buffer definitely raised me up about 3/8-1/2" or so.

    I use a Wild-Ass seat cushion (very well made and very comfortable) - along with a Misty Mountain Sheepskin cover. I was told the sheepskin would keep me warmer in the cool weather and cooler in the hot weather. I thought no way. To my surprise, I love it in all weather. Only downside is it blocks some of the heat from the seat heater. If my wife really wants more heat, she just flips the back of the cover forward (but she rarely needs to do that). I like the combination because it I'm tall and it raises me a bit.

    I use the Air hawk seat cushion covered with a Misty Mountain sheepskin seat cover on my Spyder.
    I find the combo to be comfortable for me..I have a small butt not much cushion back there. ☺️

    I have the butt buffer, make sure you cover it in the sun or put in the trunk it gets hot enough to burn you... trust me I learned the hard way and through a pair of Carhartt jeans no less.
