How very true John. Everyone’s body is different and does not react the same to miles in the saddle regardless of accumulated miles over their life. Pretty much everyone is going to have special seating arrangement that works for them exclusively.

As I mentioned you might want to try bicycle shorts over your underwear. I also use dry spray deodorant in underwear during summer months.

I know mine is just an option that works for me. I think I qualify as much as anyone that has peeled off 700+ miles in a day.
I used to ride Mtn bikes a lot, tons of trails where I live. I have some shorts left over but on the motorcycle they didn’t work so well.(for me) Great on the Mtn bike. Granted mine are padded not sure if those are the kind you are talking about though. I have some enduro padded spandex that works pretty good though. I mainly wear them for extra protection off road. Padded thighs, and tail bone mainly. I have some regular spandex boxers for gym class that are ok for motorcycling. Truth, and it’s opposite of most, typical cotton loose boxers seem to work best for me.

I wear all kinds of riding pants depending on the bike, trip and weather. They all are better at somethings and more comfortable at certain temps and riding style. I really need to reduce my gear so it all fits better in the closet but I just can’t bring my self to get rid of it. Today I road down to Louisiana and wore all klim gortex gear. Rain most of the way and in the 40-50 degree range. On the way back it will be 60s and sunshine so I can open up the vents and be very comfortable with out layers. Anyway I am rambling, thanks for the tips.

I have a Terry Adcox seat i bought from an inmate here whose height was similar. Works great, can ride all day without discomfort. Much better than the Laam and Sargent seats I tried earlier. Runner up to the Adcox seat was the Seat Concepts seat.

I have a few pairs of those as well for dirt riding that work really well. Klim Tactical and the EVS Impact shorts. I love my Klim Badlands gear!! Just before my injury I was experimenting with layering Smartwool for winter riding. I have not tried the Smartwool shorts yet but they are on my "to buy" list when I'm back in the saddle.

Seat Concepts is local to me. I have one on my Beta and it is fantastic for about 100 miles of pavement and all day comfort for true hard core dirt riding with paved transfer sections. When standing I can squeeze my legs into the sides of the seat and control my bike better.

I thought about a Seat Concepts for the Super Tenere. OTOH, AirHawk and beads work so good for super long miles I'm sticking to them. Another thing to consider is by adding the 2 layers of seat covers it puts my legs in a better position.

I have the concept seat on my S10 is a good seat. I would love to try the smart wool shorts too. The socks work great for me winter and summer

They're in Idaho now. Very good bang for the buck with little wait.

Its wider at the front, and sides. It has more girth if you like, and its firm. I tend to sit forward a bit. Best thing i did was put the back support on the gap / step between font and rear seat as i dont sit back much unless im doing long miles. As i dont move back on the seat on the gas i just dont have to hang on as much. Its more relaxing when chucking it about.

As there is a lot of talk on this thread about it, I was enquiring about underwear. However, your answer would make a hooker blush. Impressive stuff :)
