C'mon, get serious. Show us something which states you will get hp gain from heat wrapping your pipes. Delusional.

Hey, panties just gave me a great idea for you guys....

Back in the day (bear with me here) the military used to issue us with shirts made of industrial grade scotchbrite which played havoc with your nipples after you'd "walked" in them for just a few hours. The pain was unbearable, but the solution was to apply a sticking plaster to each nipple.

This gave me an idea, if your suffer so badly from the pain of the pani's saddle there's a readily available, sticky backed, ladies product that could help you out. Apply one to each buttock to achive the same effect.

Two tips though, don't let her catch you borrowing them and I wouldn't tell the lads you have them on either
Thanks from henrypbui

Yep with you on this one, get the race seat and if that's still too hard for you, well I'm afraid it's time to face facts, that you've gone too soft and should be looking at a gold wing or something.... !

I personally like the standard seat, apart from the fact it is a bit slippery.

Planning on upgrading to Alcantara covering in the winter, as the other DP seats would be too tall for me.

my cycling clothes that i like the most is Pearl Zumi, you can find them on any big cycling store, or on Amazon.
dont get me wrong, i have a 30 miles commute on my road bicycle everyday, and the rides are alot more brutal than the Ducati, to me hopping on the Ducati is a therapy time for my back and butt, i have done a few 400-500 miles trip in one day, and fine.
the reason i suggest this cycling short is to make the bike better, i have not complain about the Duc being too hard or uncomfortable
that said, cup holder is a pretty cool idea hehe

They give you a toaster, I dont see any reason why they would omit a cup holder from the bike.
