We thoroughly tested the Butt Buffer motorcycle seat cushion during a 9 day, 3200-mile motorcycle trip to Sturgis 2020 on multiple bikes, including touring and non-touring models. I also tested the Butt Buffer on my Kawasaki KLR 650 while adventuring and off-road riding.
You may think that you have the best seat on your motorcycle but I can tell you from experience that your butt will still get sore and achy if you're riding long distances and for multiple days. Additionally, many of us suffer from varying degrees of lower back pain, which can get worse during these long motorcycle road trips. Our findings were that the Butt Buffer definitely helps with both these issues.
The Butt Buffer is a super-thin hospital-grade seat cushion made of solid and elastic materials and made in the USA. The materials used were originally developed for hospital use to prevent bedsores. And that’s why the Butt Buffer can alleviate pressure points while promoting circulation, which is super important when riding long distances. The Butt Buffer significantly reduces shock and road vibrations, helping with those back issues.
The Butt Buffer motorcycle seat cushion is unlike those other air and gel seat pads. It won't leak if punctured and won’t freeze as gel pads will. It fits all motorcycle seats, installs in seconds, and you can easily clean the cover after removing the pad through a velcro closure. Further, the Butt Buffer is water and oil resistant and the materials used are hypo-allergenic.
There are a couple of Butt Buffer motorcycle seat cushions to choose from: (**links to the Law Abiding Biker Store below. Support us if you appreciate all the free content we put out to help the biker community!)
- Classic Butt Buffer Seat Cushion
- Pebble Polymer Butt Buffer
- Offers all of the benefits of the Classic, however, it also comes with a premium air-flow cover to offer enhanced air circulation to your seat cushion.
The Butt Buffer motorcycle seat cushion comes in three sizes. Small, medium, and large. Simply measure your seat and then head over to the Law Abiding Biker Store where we have the measurements, making it easy for you to choose the correct size. If you need a passenger cushion, most riders choose the small version but measure your passenger seat area for proper fitment.
Installation of the Butt Buffer is a breeze and there are several options. Please see the video on this page for installation details.
