I must have bigger butt calouses. I can get 2~3 hours non-stop no problem from the stocker. Oh well, different strokes.....Ranger Dave said:The saddle is contoured and firm, very cumfortable and allows for 1 to 1-1/2 hour rides between stops.
Does the Corbin seat reduce the reach to the ground? I'm 5'7" and wouldn't mind getting off my tip toes? Also -- can you`feel`any difference in your knees --- are they more cramped? How tall are you guys?gski02 said:I've installed the new corbin for the 06. Nice, very comfortable. I wasn't a fan of the std seat. The corbin is very different, expensive, but a lot better, so far and Ranger Dave.....
Did the Corbin saddle reduce the reach the ground?bdueck said:Just installed the Corbin seat and Smuggler for my 06 FJR.
Finish on the Smuggler is nearly perfect (very small nick, hardly noticeable), and the paint is a perfect match. Quite a bit of space in the Smuggler, and looks amazing on the FJR (just like it came from the factory that way).
The seat feels great - but pretty tight to install. I still need to fiddle with the latch a bit as well to ensure it locks down properly (mentioned in Corbin's instructions that might be necessary.
Overall, an expensive bit of kit, but having loved the Corbin I had for my FJ12 before I'm looking forward to riding on this seat vs. the stock.
OK - point taken, I'll crawl back into my hole..... :lol:ocfjr said:Try checking who said what again Alan. :lol:
You said 250 miles in 8 hours. That was an incorrect assumption on your part. Not everyone limits themselves to the stock tank.
The point is a proper custom seat will be comfortable all day. I'm not suggesting speed has anything to do with this topic. I cover 500 miles in 8 hours at a fairly relaxed pace, I just don't stop to smell the roses. It's not everyone's idea of fun travel, but if you have to get off the bike after only 1-2 hours because your butt hurts, that's not good.
How much you like it is, after all, the "bottom" line :crylarf:bdueck said:To each his/her own I say. I happen to like Corbins, and after putting 65,0000 km on my FJ12 with a Corbin, and a few 1,500 km days I know what works for me.
Others are of course free to go (or pay) their own way - I simply state that for me, Corbin makes a great product that works well for me.
Hey Ed, how much lower if you know? Also, is the Corbin narrower than the stock seat?vmaxed said:
