tip to make your ride for comfortable

hi All,
not sure if anyone is doing this, but it always help me ride more comfortable:
im a road cyclist, and has always wear cycling short under my leather pants while riding motorcycle, the fabric wicks all the moisture away, and its padded with foam on the bottom, i do notice the difference in comfort when im not wearing one

Thats a great idea. I usually just wear gym shorts under my leather pants but the cycling shorts would probably be much better. Thanks!!

Worth is weight in gold!

Every piece of gear I ride with is RS Taichi and by far this is the most awesome cool gear made! Cycle Sector in San Diego has best prices, especially if you're military! Once you get one of these you ain't gonna ride without it for sure!

I am curious about where to get them too. What is the best brand?

Rode 120 miles yesterday and my ass really hurt.

Going to Dick's Sporting Goods today to check out a pair. Even with the comfort seat, the heat is almost unbearable (after 100 miles).

Guess im just numb to the heat everyone is listing here. There is absolutely no comparison to the amount of heat thrown off the 1198 series!
No where near that amount!!!

Got this exact pair, wore them just now. Maybe, maybe it helps just a tiny bit. But I would say don't waste your money. After 30 minutes, the heat (for me) is hot enough I have to quit riding. Gonna love this bike in Sep/Oct but over the summer, this is gonna be a problem...at least for me; until I can find a solution.
