    Hello
    Has anyone fitted a Corbin seat to their Trophy? And if so, what difference, if any,  has it made to the riding experience?

    I did not like the Corbin, loved them on other bikes but not the trophy, it sits you back farther thus making the reach to the bars longer. It was better than stock but still not an all day seat.

    I ended up getting my stock seat modified by Russell Day Long, very pleased.

    Tank,

    I have a Corbin, without heat, I bought from another forum member who found it too tall after he bought it, consequently, I got it for a substantial discount.  That said, I like it much better than the stock seat.  It may be that my back side is larger than I care to admit.  I suspect it is not as comfortable as the "Day Long" seats I have seen posted on the forum.  When I am going to ride over 3 hours, I use an air hawk cushion on it and can ride 8 hours without much difficulty.

    You will see a variety of opinions on the forum, if you search all the different seat names, you will find members views on other seats they have tried.

    Good Luck, and Ride Safe.

    Thanks for the reply lads, I had a Corbin seat on my BMW K1100lt and my Honda Varadero XL1000V and they were the most comfortable seats I have ever had, I notice that in the USA you can get the heated Corbin for around the equivalent of £480, whilst over here in the U.K. It's around £780, bloody typical U.K. Rip off

    I had a Corbin on an 09 Kawasaki Concours.  It was an upgrade over stock. The dished out area gives you a nice pocket to settle into.  It looked fantastic on the bike too :002:

    The downside....it was very, very, very firm. 
    I was on day two of a ride. Day two was a 670 mile leg.  About 400 miles into the leg i realized just how hard the seat was.  My butt was killing me and I squirmed out the next 270 miles.  Even in the first 400 miles there was some thigh riding and moving around.

    I opted for the Russell on the TTSE.  Since riding season has just began in the PNW and the seat is fairly new I have only ridden 350 miles in a day. Very easy to keep planted in the seat, no need for thigh riding with your butt hanging off the seat for relief.  :047: I look forward to really testing the comfort as we move towards summer with some back to back 600-700 mile days.  However, at this point I can say that I am impressed.  FOR ME, the Russel is a more comfortable seat.  The price difference between the Corbin and Russell is about $250.

    While not a direct comparison to a Corbin on a TTSE, you may find some value in the above comparison.

    I also bought bike with a Corbin and stock seat. Hate the stock seat. Corbin is too firm and it sets me back to far to be perfect also but I make do. I also use air hawk for longer rides than just quick Cruz
