I use a beadrider when it gets hot.
They work well in channeling heat away.
Otherwise it is an Airhawk cushion.

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

But delivered to Australia, the land of 23 million people with a coastline length of 25,760 kilometers, or a little over 16,000 miles, Americas being only 12,383 miles and sheep stations nearly as big as Texas I suppose The Postage of $45 Australian where mine was free could be justified?

Well i started out with nothing and I still got a whole lot left

For around $20 delivered to Australia, everywhere else they are at least $60
Their 11"by 15.5"so take up most of the seat
So going to give them a go, everything I have read say they are good, so we will see?
Has anyone used them?

You can take those small bungees off the beaded seat as you will not need them. I've used beaded seats for probably twenty years and when you put them on the seat lift up the seat "horns" for lack of a better word and stuff the beaded seat under them on each side. That will hold them in place and you'll never need the short bungees....they look like they would have a good use on the bike I just haven't found what that is yet. Even when I've stood up to give the butt a change of position and give the boys a moment of fresh air the beaded seat does not fly off at highway speeds. I just looked at a F6B and see that they don't have the same type seat as the GL1800 so you very well might want to use the bungees if that is the bike you ride.

Mate what I did was take the seat off and put the beaded seats on and then run the bungees underneath, they never fit so just took em off and joined the black elastic together
The fits perfect and no movement at all

Well i started out with nothing and I still got a whole lot left
