    Allright...I'm gonna go there: underpants

    Yeah. I don't think I've seen any discussion thereof. I wonder what other riders prefer in the way of underpants for riding. fabric, style (boxer, brief, etc- not designer vs name brand!) As the seats on all three of my bikes tend to push me a little forward, I find occasional pressure on the boys. also sometimes digging in at the top of the legs. I also wonder if any fabrics are better at preventing monkeybutt. I've found that my close fitting poly-type boxers (not loose but formfitting) are the worse. but I haven't come up with the ideal type. while standing up on the pegs and bouncing will "re-set" my outer pants, it won't help with the underpants.

    Well there, I did it! (Not without a little embarrassment )

    Some seem to like the LD Comfort, some bicycle shorts and some Ex-Officio to keep their bottoms comfy.
    A bit of searching should show you how it's done.

    Which bikes and seats? When a seat is too soft, I'm not a fan.

    Many choices / many opinions. Here's one from my personal vault of touring tips:

    Tried the LD products - held "the boys" in a vise - also covered to much area and got warm - fast. Didn't like them.

    Have used these for years - not just for riding, either - very comfy, and yet 'supportive.' You can also rinse them at the end of the day, clothespin them to the curtains over the air conditioner during the night, and good to go the next day.

    Only negative is the price, but I've yet to wear a pair out!

    I usually wear Under Armour. The ones that look like bicycle shorts, but without the pad.

    I have a 2004 Triumph Thunderbird sport - i usually ride with the "solo" seat- fairly firm. My Harley XR1200 is surprisingly comfy but with that foreward tilt- don't know if I'd call the OEM seat hard or soft. My BMW is a 2016 R1200RT.

    There's a similar thread on the LT forum right now...

    I also tried the LDComfort shorts and found them itchy, hot and downright uncomfortable (just my opinion...I know many riders love them). That led me to try Moto Skiveez:

    http://motoskiveez.com

    They are similar to a bicycle short (with padding in the seat), but with different fabric panels sewed into various places on the shorts. I wore them through the heat in NV, AZ, UT and NM on my way to the SLC rally. While I was plenty uncomfortable in other ways, the shorts did the job, stayed comfortable and no monkey butt. I wear the Adventure model.

    I have no association with the company...just a satisfied customer.

    LD Comfort.

    No comparison.

    The best on two IRON BUTT Rallies and a few 100K miles in between.

    I used Kirkland brand (Costco) boxers. Yes, the top of my thighs did make me uncomfortable at times. I found though that if I stood up for a second and sat back down on my Airhawk, if I did so with a little side to side motion, I could get the seam that was causing the pressure to move off to the side.

    Maybe that "technique" will work for you.

    If the "boys" are causing a problem, you could have them removed. Then the king would allow you in with his harem.

    If you're looking at the Duluth products, this website might offer a better deal.
