Rocking Robin 'et al',
(Read post from Slupcho in this thread dated 01-29-2015 to start)
I have both the Adventure and the Cruiser models of Moto-Skiveez. I've ridden thousands of miles with each and they are both very good.
To begin, the Sport model is not suitable for an FJR as the padding is positions for a significant forward lean.
My FJRs both have bar risers (MCL on one and Motorrad on the other) - both these risers plates bring the bars up and back; therefore, my riding position is more upright than stock. I also have Laam seats which create a neutral seating position versus the stock seat which caused me to continuously slide forward (among other discomforts).
Based upon my experience, I suggest the following:
- if you have bars in the stock position and/or a stock seat, go for the Adventure model. The rationale is that the Adventure model provides better padding for the inner thighs and still provides good padding for the rear.
- if you have risers that bring the bars back and/or a seat that provides neutral seating, choosing either the Adventure or Cruiser models will work well. To determine which to buy, give consideration where your rear end connects with the seat and how you ride. If you primarily sit back on your rear and are prone to having the big sit bones getting sore, consider the Cruiser model. If you tend to sit forward a good portion of the time and back the other part of the time, coupled with your common discomfort points being more forward, consider the Adventure style.
These are both excellent products and in my view you can't go wrong with either model. They are stretchy is all directions, they do not cause overheating and they have add about 2 hours of comfort to my riding day. They can be worn for multiple days while on a trip and do not retain unpleasant odors. They are easy to wash in a hotel sink with a little mild soap and, when rolled in a towel to remove the bulk of the moisture, will dry overnight.
