Options For Adding Motorcycle Gel Seats to Your Bike

Lyle Ellerbee

Riding on a motorcycle is usually not all that comfortable for long periods of time unless you have gotten a custom seat or pad to make the bike more comfortable. Depending on how much money you have available, you can either order a custom motorcycle gel seat or you can get a gel seat pad to put on top of the seat you already have.

The least expensive option to improve the comfort of your bike is to add a gel cover. AMC makes Comfort Max Gel Pads that cost between $70 and $125 depending on the size and cover material that you choose. If you choose a waterproof neoprene cover your gel seat cover will cost $20 less than if you choose a silver, tan, or black sheepskin cover. There are five sizes available: buddy (7″ wide by 11″ long), medium (12″ by 12″), large (14″ by 11″), jumbo (16″ by 12″), and ortho-deluxe (18″ wide by 17″ long by 8″ wide front).

For about $250 you can get the Suzuki Genuine Accessories Custom Gel Leather Seat, Pillow – C90T for Suzuki Boulevard motorcycles. This motorcycle gel seat equalizes the pressure of your body weight. It has a SaddleGel and foam inside and an outer cover made of leather/vinyl.
