I have been reading post after post about the Brutale seat being uncomfortable. Today, as I blasted down 347 skipping through flattened patches of sugarcane at 110 I once again realized I was having no prob with the seat. Same as when I am jumping off the curb in front of the Dallas City Hall, splitting lanes in Lafayette, or popping wander lust struck turtles with the back tire out in the back roads cutting through the swamps in Cameron (rear hugger is a must for this as turtle juice tends to get up into the back of the bike). not once did I notice the seat in all these activities. As for it pushing your nuts up into the tank, just hammer on the throttle and bam - problem fixed. I will admit, the longest I have ever road my R has been about 150 miles but hey, this aint no touring bike. If I want to take a long trip I have a horribly ugly but wonderful BMW K100 with a corbin seat and a huge winshield and heated grips AND a tape player! I guess you could get a big floofy corbin seat that will grip your ass like pro wrist wrestler as you try to get from one side of the bike to the other in the backgrounds or even call Alaskan Leather and slap a big furry wool pad on there too. I bet the corbin is gonna put the driver seat heigt right up there with the rear seat, wich will be perfect for long trips as now not only will the driver be forced to deal with a sore neck from wind but just out of fairness the rider will be forced to swich from side to side at they attempt to avoid helmet clunk or see in front of them giving them a sore neck too, its almost poetic. I guess I never factored in the thought of a ride over 150 miles on the bike with full blown racing suspension, dirtbike bars and absolutely no faring at all. Maybe they should bundle a big huge winshield with some nice speakers and a cupholder for some nice hot cocoa in with the new seats? Maybe Corbin is not the answer? Why not Lazy Boy? The seat works perfectly when the bike is doing what it is supposed to do, hauling ass, raising hell, and looking cool. I think that corbin seat is gonna be funny looking, I hope they put those big tuck and rolled buttons in it.
