Riding a bike for long is not only exhilarating but also quite painful when it comes to not having a proper seat.  How good the road conditions be, at some point your butt gets sore when you have been riding for long trips. Investing in a new seat is not a wise decision, instead, adding an extra layer of padding is definitely gonna make the ride more comfortable. For this, you need a motorcycle seat pad or cushion that relieves pressure, numbness, sweating, reduced air circulation and pain in the buttocks, back and legs.

The motorcycle cushion or pad is placed on the existing bike seat using straps and is either gel-based, foam-based or inflatable.
