Dear Brothers,

Any updates on the gel seat modifications that you did. A pictorial would be of great help if not at least the description of your modifications or experimentations with GEL seats would be precious info too.

Any other manufacturers in India doing this by now ?

And lastly is air seat (rideonair / airhawk) better or doing the Gel mod better.


Cheers !!

Strange that no one replied here.

Anyways I ended up modifying my seat at Perfect Seats Imran Andheri and also got the Rideonair cushion too.

This is a brilliant product albeit the same concept as the Airhawk.

This stuff really works, I recently went for a ride and it was awesome. No butt sores or fatigue or pressure on my tail bone.

Disclaimer: This is not my product and I am not commercially involved with them. I recommend this product on the basis of my usage and experience.

His father sure is out of his mind now. Being arrogant was one thing and talking like he is the only 1 seat maker in the entire seat industry is absolutely absurd. Looking at his age I chose not to argue with him but he kept on pestering me. Imran on the other hand does have great seat making ability and his product is undoubtedly excellent. I know him since last 12 years and he has made good seats for my bikes. He has got the foam specially cast as per his seat dye. All other seat makers generally glue foam over existing one or modify the foam as per the seat.

I got the backrest version and I am very happy with the result. Although the seat nearly took 6 hours to be made.

But whoever goes to his shop has had a bad experience with his father, at least all the ones that I know of.

Yes exactly the point I was trying to make that he is not the Only one and his father acts like that way.

That whole lane has a number of seat makers now.

As far I have experienced RE Thunderbird has one of the most comfortable seat around, the suspension on the bike is also great, encourages travelling for longer distances with fewer stops. But the seat for pillion with the pillion footrest set a bit back feel a bit cramped but the suspension still steals for the comfort otherwise.

Hi Guys

I have a TB350 (2016)
the rear seat is so bad that the posterior will be absent if seated for more than 20 mins.
Any idea if I can get the rear seat a bit more comfy to use?
thanks

Default Most Uncomfortable & Most Comfortable seats - Indian motorcycles

Wanted to run it by the folks here before I take the plunge. There seems to be a new player offering air cushion for motorcycle seats for a bargain (preorder at ₹1299). Is this too good to be true?
Would love to hear from owners of ride-on-air.
