How To Achieve Backside Bliss On Long Motorcycle Rides

 8 Tips to help you maximize your seating comfort on long adventure rides.

Published on 03.04.2014

1. Simple Solutions

Sometimes the simplest methods for improving comfort on long motorcycle rides are also the most effective. Just standing up on the pegs periodically can work wonders. You can also vary your position on the seat alternating between forward, back, left and right. Stop to take a break periodically and walk and stretch a bit to help get your circulation flowing again. Also, make sure you are hydrated to prevent muscle soreness and cramping. This type of preventive maintenance helps your body recover from the abuse of long rides and can stop soreness before it sets in.

After a few days of riding, it can become hard to get on the bike in the morning. Not only is your backside aching, but everything else starts hurting by day three. An easy way to turn down the volume on your pain is to take over-the-counter pain medication. Anti-inflammatory pain killers like Advil or Aspirin help reduce your body’s overall sensitivity to pain and provide long-lasting relief.

  1. I have an xr650r the stock seat was killing me after only riding 1/2 hour, I got a seat from seat concepts , night and day difference, I can ride all day now!

  2. I’m using a Saddlemen Adventure Track on my KLR; it’s the only expensive piece on the whole bike. However, with that seat installed, I can ride for 10 hours w/o needing to visit the ER for monkeybutt-syndrome thereafter. It was worth every penny.
