Mine's the red and silver one Spry...here it is

Yeah, black looks great on the red/silver. I found a pick of eddypro's and the black corbin looks fine on his black 1078:



Still going to think about it for a while. May as well take my time because I will be looking at it for a long time.

I have a Corbin on my 910S. It is as hard as a rock and makes my ass ache after about 150 miles. I have a Corbin on my 996 and it is much softer. I don't know if the original purchaser of the seat requested such stiff foam, but I'm heard that Corbin will modify your seat to your liking.

I have a Corbin for mine, not crazy about the quality of fitment around the tank and it's heavy. On a 5 day trip it was way better than the stock seat but the rounded shape that makes it so comfortable just doesn't work with the lines of the bike. I rode up to San Fiasco with Alvin after the 08 MV meet to visit the factory. The Man himself agreed it didn't fit around the tank correctly. They reworked it but still doesn't fit like the stock seat. I decided appearance was more important than comfort and it's been collecting dust ever since. Pics in my album. If you look at the pic titled Big Bear you can see the fitment issue, and that was the good side.

Yep guys, I'm one of those who swears by wearing the boxer shorts with gel inserts under my kevlar denim jeans. Got them cheap from sth Korea about $15 freighted. Normally worn by mountain bikers. Much better than my airhawk gel cover

Love my seat

No sliding, bit more padding, custom stitching by Ade. Don't know if he is still doing seats, but he's the best.

I really had a terrible experience with Corbin on my Tuono. Sent it back three times and still couldn't line the bolt holes up to install it. Fitment was awful as well. Took forever to get my money back. Even sent an email to the boss with no reply. Would not choose them ever again.

Wow mz3boy love the look of the saddle... When you say no sliding, what's the material?

I believe that material is alcantara. Though I haven't seen one in person, Ade's are the best looking seats on the forum.

Does it absorb water if it gets rained on?
