    I placed an order for a beadrider for the seat of my BMW. I've always been curious about them. I hope they're all they've been cracked up to be.

    I figured that it's about time to stop wondering about them and find out if they work.

    I have one, but have not done the long range test. I tried it on a cool day, and the air flowing under my ass was cold. I move around on the bike, and it stayed put, but I was trying to keep it from moving.

    The ceramic bead does not move around at all. You just have to make sure it is installed tight on the seat.

    I didn't mean the bead itself, but rather, the whole pad shifting back & forth.

    Re: Bead Rider 25% Off Christmas Sale

    My Bead Rider seat pad arrived today. Initial impression is that it looks to be of high quality and very well crafted.

    It fits the contours of the seat of my BMW well. I haven't had a chance to actually try it out as of yet, but I am planning a ride on Christmas Day. Kind of a tradition for me.

    Ordered it on the 14th and it arrived on the 19th. That's pretty good!

    I figure I'll just have to wait until then. Ride report to follow later.

    Re: Bead Rider 25% Off Christmas Sale

    Bead Rider ride report:

    I was going to wait until Christmas Day to go for a ride. But, the weather prediction has changed a bit and it's calling for possible rain / snow showers in the higher elevations. That would be me.

    So.....I went today. I've had the Bead Rider pad mounted on my seat since the 19th. Today was the 1st ride on it. Everything considered, I think it's great!

    The initial impression was that it felt kind of weird. Not in a bad way, just a different way. Within 20 miles or so, I had already gotten used to it. It definitely lets the air circulate under your butt. I could feel how cool it was. I like to ride in cool weather, and no matter how cold it is out, I'll still use it.

    I also noticed that it elevates me a bit in the saddle. That was another good thing. Not a whole lot, but enough to notice the difference. And, it seemed to reduce the felt road vibration. My bike felt smoother going down the road.

    My stock seat is on soft side, compared to something like a Corbin Gunfighter seat. The Bead Rider added some stability / firmness to my seat, making it so that I didn't sink down into it as much. That was yet another good thing.

    And last, but certainly not least, the pad doesn't wander or shift around like I thought it might. It pretty much stays put. That's a huge plus and a big relief.

    Overall, I'd give the Bead Rider a BIG .

    I'm going to order a Bead Rider pad for my passenger seat.

    Re: Bead Rider 25% Off Christmas Sale

    One thing I forgot to mention, is that my stock seat slopes a bit towards the fuel tank, and tends to make me slide towards it. I have to keep pushing myself back.

    It's vinyl and I always wear blue jeans. Between the two materials, it can be hard to push myself back away from the tank.

    The seat pad seems to fill a void / depression in the seat and now makes my seat more level. If I do need to push myself back, it's a whole lot easier to do. My pants don't stick to it like they did the seat.

    Remove the fabric from an old mouse pad. Fold it in half and slip it under the front of the bead rider. Slope No More!!!
