Which Airhawk seat pad should I get - 06 FZ6

Well I already have two seats for my FZ6, the stock one and then one that was lowered (bought the bike in 2015 and the suspension has been lowered as well as the seat).
I like having the seat as low as possible since my inseam is 29" and I am aware that if I add an Airhawk I'm going to be sitting up higher but I will be doing a cross-country and back trip this summer (LA to ND to NY then taking the southern route back) and will be spending long hours in the saddle. This will be my first long..... trip and I'm planning ahead - at 72 years old I don't have too many years left to make trips like this.

Searching this forum I noticed several people mentioning using the Airhawk on their FZ6 but no one mentions the size. I'm looking at getting the Airhawk R Cruiser Seat Pad but I don't know if I should get the Small or Large size.
Can anyone advise me on which to get?

Well no one replied.
So, I bought the small Airhawk R seat pad and was not pleased with it as it just wasn't large enough... it made me sit way too close to the tank and if I scooted my but further back on my stock seat I was nearly sitting off of it and if you took off fast it was hard to feel secure, so I purchased the large one and I love this one, works really well.
Now I have a size small Airhawk R for sale
