Corbin Seat Report
« on: October 07, 2013, 11:50:56 AM »
I just returned from a 3500 mile trip thru the southeastern states.  Totaly satisfied with the new Corbin seat and backrest.  Averaged around 10hours/day on the bike.  It is an "all day" seat for me.  I must add that I have about 50,000 mile experience with Corbin on my preivious bike and was used to the Corbin feel.  This is a keeper.

Thanks for the report.  Is a Corbin seat firm?

Yes.   Give it 500 miles or so and it will get broken in.  But still firm.   If you are used to, or expecting a cushy mushy seat, this is not for you.

Thanks for the write up.   :460:  If you dont mind what is your heith/weight/inseam?  I am 6'3", 240, with a 34" inseam and am looking for more room and less sliding forward.  Do you find the seat more flat?  More room?

I knew right away that that low seat had to go and ordered the stock seat.  It's much better because its taller and flatter. That low seat pushed me toward the tank and chapped my butt because when I scooted back I was sitting on the angled portion of the seat.  I have no idea why Triumph puts the low seat on all North American imports.

I'm 6'1", either side of 215 pounds, with a 32" inseam.   The seat felt slippery (leather) at first wich gave the sensation of sliding forward but after a few break-in miles that perception is gone.

This is from the Corbin web site but mine is identical to this picture.  I only have the driver backrest.
