Social Distancing Ride

Went for a little ride this afternoon. It was so good to get out of the house if only for an hour or so.





Stay safe and healthy everyone, and have a great Easter Weekend!

That rear passenger butt rest looks huge. Is it custom or corbin ( technically custom I guess )

Thatís a Laam. Custom. Looks normal to me.

No commercials. No dictators.

it looks and fits the bike well -- but to me looks so much wider than stock for sure. I will check them out.

Moparman,

Lumberg is correct - it's a set of Seth Laam seats. I had Seth do them up last year. When I got the FJR a couple years ago it had a Corbin seat at the front and stock seat at the rear. I upgraded the rear to a Corbin soon after but my wife said it was no more comfortable than the stock seat. She could only take 60 minutes at a time max on either the stock or Corbin seat before having to get off due to the pain. If we rode all day or for a few days in a row she would be down to about 20 minutes between stops by the end of the day. I had no problem with the Corbin front seat but then I had been riding an FJ1200 with a Corbin for close to 25 years. Took me a bit to get used to the feel of the Seth Laam seat but now that I have I love it. The biggest improvement was with my wife's comfort - she can easily last twice as long on the Seth Laam as the other two seats. We went for a 4-day ride last June and even on the last day she was able to go close to 2 hours between stops. When we would stop for a break it was usually because she needed to go pee, not because her ass hurt. What can I say, Seth Laam was the best thing that happened to my wife's ass! I'll leave it at that.

Happy Wife...
