I seen this and wondered if anyone has one or experienced one.. It is less money than the Ultimate that I am saving money for seems to offer about the same comfort but no place to test one out that I have found as of yet.
Got my new liner and trying to collect all the bells and whistles to make it mine. Its the money part that is slowing me down.. Riding is just getting nice and back into practice.
Thanks
Paul

that is the corbin dual tour with some custom stitching. I have the dual tour on my bike and absolutely love it. If you go to corbins website they have a wide selection of colors and textures to choose from and will make seat to order for no extra cost. I've bought 2 of them from corbin and takes about 3 to 4 weeks to get it. The seat runs about 500 bucks or you can get it heated for about 700.

Thanks,
Although corbin is giving other options like heat and choice of material, the PU seat comes with one backrest and trying to stay in a budget.
Just wondered what people have thought of it and if its a corbin seat I know all that have them love them.
Thanks for the info.

It looks to have the same exact profile of the Corbin and if construction is the same other than the upholstery it should be a pretty comfy seat, Just keep in mind that for the most part you get what you pay for. Its hard to say though until you've actually sat on one. It sucks because unless you live somewhere close to a manufacturer you will probably will not get the chance to test one out, and that is a big investment to just buy and find out that you don't like it. Don't budgets SUCK!!!!

It claims to be solar reflective leather seating surface and auto vinyl sides. Lower rider height but doesn't say how much lower like corbins site does. The parts I read on corbin say leather seating panel but doesn't say about the non seating material.

yes the budgets suck, lucky the wife let me get a new ride anyway.
and the Ultimate I know I like but hoping some more who might have this will pipe in b4 having the money to get it anyway.. If it is made by corbin I am sure I will like it.. every thing looks like what corbin does, the stock seat feels ok need more ride time and I know I love the backrest which is why I got the ultimate for last bike. that was after a summer with the kury backrest and then the seat was the issue.. and the ultimate let me ride hundreds of miles wanting to go more. Did 14 hundred daytona bike week last year and felt like it was just a test ride.

Thanks for the info HTMNKYLVE,
Paul

I had one on my 07 strat for about 300 miles. I bought it from Dennis Kirk and returned it. It made my butt hurt after about a hour. I think the stock seat for me was more comfortable. But I'm 6'5" so it might be better for you. For me it felt like I was sitting on my tail bone.
My Wife liked it because the passenger part of it is a few inches taller. But both of us thought the seat felt like it slanted forward too much. I always felt like I was riding down hill or something. Might have worked well for a bike that has had the rear lowered a little.

There is a little more info and some pictures on the delphi forum.
I think the thread was titled "big and tall seat question"
