Any fellow numb bum sufferers here? Between losing weight and my natural padding, and my previous bike (DR 800 - big single) jack hammering the Crown Jewels, I have apparently damaged a nerve in my pelvis which is causing all sorts of issues. The doctor ordered 6 months of no biking but having made it clear that I would only consider that as a last ditch option, he suggested that I may be able to compensate. My new bike, an R1200RT is much more comfortable but I was still getting numb bum after about an hour in the saddle. I bought a new seat from Sargent which is much wider but also much firmer. It has been good at transferring pressure from the hackey sack and the tail bone, but it feels like my butt bones are now connected directly to the engine mounts due to more vibration being transferred through the firmer foam. Next step is either padded shorts or some sort of gel seat cover. Has anyone tried either and can you report on how they work?
