Seats, Seats, Seats
As mentioned elsewhere, seats are very much a personal fit issue. Things to consider include: The quality of the materials used, workmanship, appearance, tilt, padding thickness and height from the ground,, width through your knee area, weight, but most of all, comfort. Like others on this FJR forum, Iíve been through a lot of seats on quite a few bikes. Comfort wise, some work, some donít. Actually, the stock seat on my late model FJR is one of the most comfortable stock seats Iíve owned. Corbin: great workmanship, great appearance, usually well-formed with limited forward tilt, but the seat pan is super heavy and the foam consistency is like sitting on a rock. Firm is one thing, but hard as rock is something else entirely. That alone disqualifies Corbin for me.
