Comfy Seat

I've been looking for ages for a Gel seat for my Tiger, but with no joy.
So I'm now looking at buying some sort of seat pad for my bike.
There seem to be two types of seat, Air or Gel.
Is there anybody who used both, if so what is the best one to go for?

I have a gel insert on the blackbird and its fine never had an air seat but nothing is air tight so it will leak over time. There are plenty of seat rebuilder out there who can do same thing with verios foam inserts may be worth talking to them before laying out money on a gel insert or pad

It was Paul from Ormskirk (555byker) who had the seat converted with a gel pad on his VFR

Cheers Imola I've had a look on ebay for Bob the seat, it doesn't look like he's on there anymore.

There's always the option of buying gel pad and doing the job yourself. I've never tried air seats but I know gel seats work really well from personal experience.

I can't do it myself.
Because I'm not allowed sharp things, Big Sis gets worried.

yeah that was him 555byker - well remembered. Strangely enough got a photo of him and Jane on my 'Cat and Fiddle' album in my 'photos' on my profile.

Seemed like a really decent guy, not seen anything of him since despite only living 11 miles away
