Numerous motorcycle touring gloves have some form of "dimpling" on the palm to stop slip-so I would suppose these could work.

The other solution is to use another type of "dressing" on your leathers/textiles to stop the slip....(use NON silicone)

Don't know if your post is "tongue in cheek" tho.... rolleye0012

I'm sure that would work, but I can't ever wee myself wearing one.

So says the guy who's ridden on his camping pillow severa times.  lmao lmao lmao

I think I should save up for an air hawk seat cushion.

Sorry Ray,

I don't think it would be that comfortable on the bike. Strapping it to yourself as well - seems a bit of extra discomfort. I have three forms of seat apparel.
1 - Lambswool rug - used to be a kids nappie changer - totally awesome - works well - I also roll it up for a pillow.
2- Gel seat pad - works well for a few hours - but then the gel when nice and warm flows from the required areas very quickly and then does not work that well.
3 - Air Hawk seat - found that to be the best for comfort - it moves with you and allows air to pass under - and keeps things cool - similar to the lambswool but provides some additional comfort on longer trips

I use mainly 1 and 3 if going on a trip longer than a few hours. Have not used my gel seat pad for a while - you are welcome to try it and see if it works for you.

Cheers

I have been known to wear mountain bike pants especially for long trips, they have built in foam/gel inserts and they work a treat

4 - You have extensive padding on your backside.

Was I standing in front of one of those fat mirrors. ??

No, I think you were riding my Custom and I was wondering if my poor shocks would ever recover.

That sounds brilliant.

Simple & inexpensive.  You can probably get them at K Mart.

I got mine from a bicycle shop-they are Italian made and pretty swish ergonomically-I think I paid around $60 but well worth it.
