How To Achieve Backside Bliss On Long Motorcycle Rides

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

3. Anti-Chafe Glide Stick

Bodyglide Anti Chafe Stick

The waxy substance helps reduce friction even in the presence of moisture.

Bodyglide anti-chafe stick is a popular product for long-distance runners that helps protect against blisters and chafing caused by sweat and friction. Bodyglide’s ingredients are non-petroleum based, all natural vitamin E & Aloe. The product is applied like a deodorant stick and goes on without a mess. Use it strategically on your backside in the areas that get irritated the most. The wax like substance works its way into your skin and reduces friction instantly. The product works in the presence of moisture, so it’s great for wet conditions or when you’ve worked up a sweat. Although, once wet you may need to re-apply Bodyglide more frequently.

It is best to apply Bodyglide before you begin a long motorcycle ride, but Bodyglide can still help reduce discomfort and irritation even when you’ve already become raw. Bodyglide is hypoallergenic and won’t clog pores, allowing your perspiration to escape. At the end of the day, any extra residue washes off easily with soap.

Bodyglide works wonders for hand blisters as well. The compact 0.45 oz stick fits conveniently in most hydration packs for easy access when you need it.

I use a Russell Day Long seat on my V-Strom. It is an awesome, totally 100% comfortable seat no matter the miles or the hours in the saddle.

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.
