i know, use your legs as I've ridden ATV's for years BUT even with that after a long pounding ride and even a long time on the jetski in smooth water my rear end is as sore as it could be. I'm 66 so not as firm as I used to be ( LOL) but I'm thinking there must be a solution, a cushion of some type. I tried a 1 inch piece of Styrofoam ( didn't help much). My next attempt will be with a donut . Are there any older riders who have found a solution or even aftermarket devices. I'm riding a 2005 Kawi 3 seater. I Thank you and my rear end will thank you also LOL!!
