I've got probably 80K miles in the LDComfort stuff, including dozens of 1,000-1,500 mile days (or longer, if you string them together.
) The stuff just plain works, just as it is.
Although I agree that in Tommy's case, perhaps a size smaller would be beneficial.
I'd also suggest that anyone with questions contact LDComfort and ask them directly. I've been to their facility in Washington, and met the owner Mario several times. He's a hell of a rider himself, and he's always glad to help out a fellow rider.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
