Talking 910R Corbin Seat is Ready

Well Corbin finally emailed me after almost 8 weeks and said my '07 910R is ready and I need to come in an get my free seat adjusted to fit me. It will be a week before I get the chance to see it in person, but they have these pics on their site http://www.corbin.com/news/

Now if someone could just show me how to adjust my chain, I can ride this baby home.

All Brutale seats are fully interchangable among models, though IMO, like most Corbin seats, while this may be more comfy, it's rather ungainly.

For me, the main issue with the stock seat is not the comfort of the seat per se. Rather, it's that it slides you foward, off the wider rear portion onto the narrower front portion- which is more uncomfortable by virtue of not being fully supportive. I know pictures are often misleading, but the Corbin seat appears to have a rather dramatic slope foward as well, even it it is more "ungainly", er, more thickly padded.

It's Aria Giovanni, next to the MV Agusta, Italy's hottest export.
But, though a porn star, she likes women only, or so I hear.

When I dropped off the bike and they showed me the material they were considering for the seat, my first though was it is not as slippery as the material on the stock seat. I felt it offered more friction, to hold you in place more. But I haven't seen or felt the finished product yet. I am supposed to pick the bike up Oct 3rd.

Honestly, I didn't think I would like a different seat, but seeing the pictures now I am not so sure. I rode the bike down to Hollister, 3 hours in the saddle and it didn't bother me much comfort wise, as it did sliding around during stop and go traffic.

I am not closed minded, I will give the Corbin seat a chance.

Just talked with Corbin and they are taking orders. They don't know the price yet, but it looks like they'll be shipping within three weeks.

And they will do them in any color combination.
