My Ballz!

Jesus. Went for a 5 hour ride today and my balls got all crammed down there after awhile. Is there anything I can wear that will keep them padded and cozy like, you know up front and off the skin? Something that pads the bum would be nice too.

eesh.

Whomever said all good things in moderation certainly never rode a bad ass Bonneville

Another 50 or 60 five hour rides and you should harden up a bit.

I think you are braking too hard, too often. They don't call 'em tank slappers for nothing.

You could always get a pair of cycling shorts, that pad from front to back. They are a life saver when you are in the saddle for 2 hours.

God Bless the USA!!

^ what he said.

Padded bicycle shorts were a real bonus on my US coast to coast (and back) trip back in 09. As pusher said, I always wear them if I'm gonna be on the bike for more than a couple of hours. Not only do they pad, but good quality ones wick moisture away from all your crevices.

So, fair to say that having big balls is not always going to help you win the fight ????

Big balls are no match for TnT. Or at least that's the way I remember it.

I have wondered about the possibility of modifying the tank and/or seat to be more accommodating.

Try draping them over the side of the tank, one on each side. I find that wrapping each individual ball in a sock provides enough padding between me and the tank for comfort, although the balls get very sweaty in the summer heat. But I am trying to loose weight so I am good with this.
