ok Slupcho I chased down the Australian distributer it turns out he is based about 20klms from my place right on one of my regular day ride routes. It was very good of the distributer to meet me there on a Saturday (Valentines Day) he was not opening and I told him that I was doing a 3 day 1400klms trip the following week through a great and popular motorcycle route (thunderbolts way, Oxley hwy etc) and I was doing the trip with a lot of serious tourers so I needed something to help with the conversation at the bar/table besides the great corners and lonesome back roads, so hopefully they will prove to give me that little extra between pain stops. I have tried them on and sat on the bike when walking they feel like I have something in the back of my pants (have not had that feeling since I got out of nappies) and when sitting they certainly fill the gap between the rear tail bones which is a good sign. Even if they don't prove to give me any assistance my wife says they improve the shape of my butt so I can still wear them when we go out, of course if the improvement is to great she wont let me wear them out without her presence.

Effjayed,

Thanks for taking such great effort in acquiring Moto-Skiveez®. Most often the first time you put them on they might seem a little odd. We always recommend a few washes just to soften them from their initial manufactured condition, which is a little stiff. I will ad that most riders experience they tend to conform and soften a bit after an hour or so in the saddle. I know that I am always more comfortable after I wear them for a while. My opinion is that after they warm to body temperature and actually absorb some normal body perspiration the materials improve.

Regardless I'm glad that they improve your physical appearance. And if the misses likes the result, then all the better.....

Thanks again for the feedback. Safe travels!

Hi Slupcho I just completed my 3 day trip of about 1400klms and as I had to leave after work as the others had the full day to get to destination 1 I had to knock off
350klms after 5.pm winch meant I was going to spent more that an hour in the saddle getting out of peak hour Sydney before I can hit the freeway after a short stop for some crap food on the run (why does the food always look better on the promotion photo) I was back in the saddle to complete the trip the next 2 days was great riding drinking eating and then back home so my verdict on the moto-skiveez (remembering I do this trip twice a year so my memory bank was armed and dangerous) is that I started to get the pain in the butt about the same time but the pain was easily more bearable for an extra 40 to 50 klms which meant I was able to get the extra klms I was hoping for so the verdict is
Bums up

Very fair assessment. Obviously I would like to hear that you think these are the best garment that the universe has ever produced, but my realistic expectation is that they provide additional comfort and allow for extended riding.

For some people, the results a far more, but I would rather under promise and over deliver. I will never profess that Moto-Skiveez® are the end all and be all for riding motorcycles and that by wearing them you will never experience any riding discomfort. I think possibly the best description is from a riding buddy who stated "....I never realized how well they worked until I rode without them."

Thanks much for the feedback.

They work

I just finished a three day 1400 mile trip averaging about 10 hours per day on the seat and the Moto Skiveez do work. Without them I was good for about six hours before I started squirming around, and I was ready to quit after eight hours.

The Adventure-style did not do miracles- but they did add about two hours to my comfort time, and when the soreness started, it was much less severe than usual. By the next morning, there was no residual soreness.

I took them off and washed them as soon as the day's ride was over and they dried out by morning, as advertised. Being a skeptic I started with one pair- and now that they are proven to work- I will get more.

Thanks for a good product !

I have been wearing the Adventure for about 4 months now "Yes I have washed them" Although they seem to make it better there are some areas that still need improvement. I am going to order a pair of cruiser and give them a try.
