Talking Corbin Seat installed w/PICS

Okay here are some pics I took this evening after installing the Corbin seat and Cowl back from them..... I got pictures do not do this seat justice and I sat on it in the driveway and wow it fits my rear better. Oh yeah they tossed in a free seatback and also they covered my cowl padding to match.

I will have to say it was worth the wait and I only had to live without my seat cowl a few weeks which I wasn't really using and I got all this back for free.

Even though St. Patricks Day was yesterday, I'm still green with envy. It looks really nice. Is your bike the first with the Corbins on it?

Nice!

That looks spectacular. You'll have to let us know what a passenger thinks of the seat and backrest. I know my wife is curious.

Yeah that could be hard since I seldom have a 2up partner on the bike thus I got the seat cowl. I know a few other have already ordered a seat but have not gotten them yet.

Yes its basically the stock seat (Gunfighter & Lady Saddle fitted with the rear support) with modification to meet my needs. I had them shave it down some to lower it and also shaved the sides for my legs to be able to reach the ground better, I picked the glossy carbon fiber leather for the seating areas and then used carbon fiber vinyl on the side areas and had them use carbon fiber silver piping around the seating areas of for the front and rear and around the cowl padding and rear back rest. Oh also had them move the rise forward 1 1/2" similar to Eprior since I sit more toward the tank which seemed to work out great.

A few pics of my bike with the Corbin (so WTVA doesn't steal all of my thunder ). Also a couple of comparison shots of the Corbin I had made and the stock seat.
