I have a Corbin on my 1500, I picked it up second hand from Kijiji or Craigs list. First thing about it is this seat is heavy. the foam is much more dense, it is very comfy. Leather cover, so it needs some care and water proofing. Best $100 I spent on my bike since I bought my electric vest. (ya I got a REALLY good deal on the seat). 8-)

Pretty tuff to beat a Corbin.I'm running a Hartco right now that the wife and I both love,but if someone wanted to trade me a Corbin for it the Hartco would be gone.If you're running a stock seat now I would be all over it.JMHO.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

Also running a Corbin seat on my 98 GoldWing. I got mine for $300 off of a craigslist ad. The best investment I have made for the bike thus far.

If you are going to ride any kind of distance at all the seat is the best place to put your money to keep those two little pain in the a$$ bones happy!

Im the third owner of my Corbin. It was Grey with Teal pinstriping. Luckly I lie 1 hour from their shop, so I had it recovered to my tastes. Mine came with a leer to raise the huge backrest tat came wit it. I had them remove them lever,d in the future will find a more moder backrest. They refer to teir seats as Saddles. It allows you to sit in te bike instead of on the bike. It will take about 500 mile for it to form to your butt. If your into cushione seats, it wll not be for you because it is hard. en you first ride it it on the bike, you will fel how it olds you into the bike, and doesn't let go. I ihly recommend it.
Rd Safe,
Rich
