We left May 26th and returned home June 10th. We covered 5800 miles with a low temp of 48F and a high temp of 107F.

I had a pair of the Cruiser and a pair of the Adventure shorts for myself, I gave Pop a pair of the Cruiser shorts.

Without naming competitive brands my normal complaints are:
1. Legs too long.
2. Legs too tight at cuff.
3. Legs too tight at quadriceps.
4. Depending on brand, not supportive enough.

The MotoSkiveez were a HUGE improvement in all those areas.

But... The "Butt Pad" is not a Good Thing. That pad, while it wicked moisture very well, still held moisture in extreme heat. The Butt Pad on the Adventure Short often felt like I had let something slip out and I needed to "check wipe".

My biggest complaint with the Butt Pad is that Pop and I both have Laam Custom seats. The edges of the Butt Pad would overlap the edges of the stock seat but are on top of the support area of the Custom Seat. That led to some discomfort from that edge digging into my (beautifully shaped!) butt cheeks.

If MotoSkiveez decides to build these shorts to fit EXACTLY the way they do now but without the Butt Pad, I am ready to buy. Right Now.

Even as they are, these were the best Motorcycle Underoos I ever tried. And I have paid some good money on several other top rated brands.
REDFISH, Thanks for choosing Moto-Skiveez® and thank you for the comments. We always appreciate constructive opinions about our products. It is exactly this type of information that will allow us to continually improve and refine our products.

Everyone's anatomy and physical makeup is different. Although we put considerable time and resources into designing our pads, I know that short of a custom tailored design, there may never be one product that will accommodate everyone. In very hot conditions, our pads are designed to absorb moisture but still remain effective at reducing discomfort. Again, this is a broad area. Some people perspire much more than others. Unfortunately, if there is much perspiration or moisture, and no means to transport that outward, such as venting, etc., the pad will retain the moisture. For the vast majority of riders this has not been an issue. We have had reports of people wearing our shorts immediately after washing while they are still wet with no problems. We even have one report where a customer swam in them, then without removing the shorts after exiting the water, put his riding clothes back on and continued to ride for another fours hours. This was in Hawaii in very humid conditions. Again, I'm just trying to emphasize the range in experiences with the same product.

Now having said that, we know there is a certain market segment that is just averse to wearing a padded undergarment. We are currently developing a new type of garment that is unlike anything currently on the market. It is intended to accomplish the same result, to reduce riding discomfort, but it will do so with out padding. I don't want to give too much away at this point, but know that we are committed not only to continually refine and improve our current products, but also to bring new and innovative products to market.

Thanks again for the comments and thanks for choosing Moto-Skiveez....stay tuned.

Yeah, I've tried a couple different brands too but always seem to migrate back to my preferred brand. They're not perfect but they seem to work best for me. I learned long ago that I'm not a butt pad type o' guy, very uncomfortable to me as it seems to pinch off leg nerves in short order causing my legs to go to sleep. Kinda like if you doze off on the throne in the "reading room". So I have yet to try motoskiveez. If there were some without the padding I'd love to try them.

07FJRVegas 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.

Daniel DiMaggio I would love to try one but I will wait to see if they are ever on sale. A little high for my wallet. I'm sure they are a good product though!

Hello,
thanks for your article.
I want to buy a pair but I am confused as to which type is suitable. My bike is a big Sports Tourer (FJR1300), half way between an adventure type upright position and a sports bike crouch.
Which of the three styles would you recommend?
Thank You.

nicpaige I knew how helpful these are on longer rides but tonight after sitting on hard bleachers for the fireworks I found they make a world of difference just for overall comfort. I'm ordering more!

Although many women have worn our product, the base short is really designed for male anatomy. We are finalizing our women's short and it should be available very soon. Thanks for your interest in Moto-Skiveez®.
