Are Adventure Bikes Comfortable

ADV-style bikes offer the most comfortable riding position, which eliminates the need to hang on to handlebars. Riders sit upright in a neutral posture, reducing pressure on the neck and back, and avoiding the awkward hunch over the bars.

Plush seats and low foot pegs are also convenient for long rides and long distances. Some of the best ADV-style bikes can cross the Kalahari with ease.

These bikes are usually large displacement vehicles that can withstand long rides on pavement and dirt roads. Their seats are well-padded and offer more adjustment.

Electronic suspension is also common on many touring bikes. The seat can be easily adjusted between touring and sport modes. The motorcycle's seat can be raised and lowered for a more customized ride. The front wheel of adventure bikes is often large and has a high-profile tire to help absorb bumps.

The Adventure Bike Seat Types

The seats on adventure bikes are designed to be lowered, and some models have heated seats. The taller seats are also useful for standing up on rough surfaces. Some models have lowering links for the seat. Despite the higher seat height, many manufacturers include features like electronic rider aids, heated seats, and adjustable gears to provide greater comfort for the rider and the pillion. Generally, the bikes are tall, but some models offer lower seating options.


With the added benefits of adjustable seats, high bars, and cruise control, ADV bikes can be very comfortable for long rides. The rider can also rest his/her wrists on the handlebars and keep his/her arms and shoulders free for more control. With all the available accessories, an ADV bike is a great purchase. If you're planning on taking a long ride, it's essential to find a comfortable and safe bike.

Some adventure bikes have big capacity engines that make them suitable for long-distance travel. These bikes also have a wide range of speeds and are incredibly light. But what's more, the GS Adventure has a comfortable saddle, while smaller rivals aren't. The KTM stocker is also more versatile than its competitors. A good-quality road bike should be comfortable, and you should choose a bike that can do both.

With the added benefits of big wheels and a sturdier frame, adventure bikes can be intimidating for riders who are not used to riding on the road. But they are built for off-road riding and are comfortable. Most of them also offer electronic rider aids, which make them more convenient and less likely to require a higher level of concentration. In addition to the ergonomics, an adventure bike can be very safe for long-distance touring.

An adventure bike can be very comfortable if you are used to riding on the road. But if you are short, you may want a bike with a tall windscreen and low seat. A long-distance touring bike should be comfortable for both long-distance and multi-day riding. However, it should also be sturdy and stable, which means it's suitable for off-road use. When you're riding, it's essential to take the comfort and safety of the rider into account.

Dudes! Are you really asking that? Ok, we et it there are alot of dodgy folks online these days trying to make a quick buck. But now, we have put our heart and soul into Rugged Motorbike Jeans and scamming is the last thing on our mind. We are a small team of bikers, generally adventuring around on our various bikes (supermoto's, adventure, naked street and enduro bikes). If you email us you will generally get our CEO Sam or one of our other support staff who love the motorcycle community and are a part of it wherever we go. Everything is legit as soon as you make an order, it is processed immediately and on the way to you.

Yes & No. We sell a wide range of pants which DO have protective knee and hip pads and are suitable for motorcycle riding AND we also sell biker style jeans and pants which, although are all made of durable tough material are not certified for safety and do not have the protective padding needed in case you do get a little too throttle heavy and lay your bike down (we have all been there and done that!). Please check each product and contact us if you have any questions on this.

Since we offer a wide range from various manufacturers, they all have their own sizing per brand. However there is a sizing chart on each product page, look for the tab just above the description or the size chart link on the right side, or email us and we can recommend the size for you.

PLEASE NOTE : the size charts are taken directly from the manufacturer and the length is incorrect on some, the length is generally a standard length based on the waist size (waist size is correct on all size charts).

Typically the standard FREE shipping (which has full online track and trace) takes anywhere from 7 to 40 days, depending on your country. We also offer an expedited shipping service for a low fee of $4.95. Please see the shipping page for more detailed info.
