My Corbin Seat

Arrived today (a week early too) and its AWESOME. only had 1 hour ride today but have tomorrow off so plan on a long ride to get the feel of it and see what I think.
for anyone who has checked out the color chart on their site I went with; Black Bomber jacket (Front), Ghost gray (side), ghost gray (rear), no welt.

I see you have passenger pegs, what are you going to do about having a passenger on the bike if that is something you still plan on doing?

Thx Gary, i'm super excited about it

Shorty- it's a non-issue at this point, i'm just leaving them on there, cause i installed with the Honda rear seat. So far there has been no passenger, and no plans for one in the future.. if that day comes, i'll let you know if/what happens LOL. I guess i'd give it a try and see if they could sit back there, and what it feels like. But since i've been riding the bike lately I feel like it's a "just me" thing

If the rest of the bike was white, then man, that would blend in nicely!

Still not loving the back part of the seat, but the thought of the comfort from the seat is slowly growing on me here.. Ugh, might just have to cave in some day..

I like it, but it looks like there's three different shades of gray going on here, or is it the lighting?
Would really look slick if you matched the tank and side cover to the gray of the seat.

as i'm sure Gary and a few others have stated the comfort cannot be expressed enough. the seat isn't even "broken in" yet and I did 250 miles today and my butt didn't go numb at all!
also I don't know if i'm imagining this just cause i'm excited about the new seat, or it's for real-but after riding over some of the same roads/bumps that i normally have to hit around my area, i'd swear it seems softer (i.e.-i'm not feeling bumps as much, or being jolted off the seat)- and i haven't changed the suspension in over a month so that's the same. so is it the extra padding helping out?

$ Bill- yes it's technically 3 shades. the bike is listed as Matte silver, the paint i used on the side covers/radiator cover is called Matte Nickel, and Corbin calls the rear seat color Ghost Gray. i tried to pick the color that would closest match IMO. sure it's not 100%, but I love it!

update-the seat is Amazing. Did 250 miles today , rode for the better part of 5-6 hours, and never felt like my butt was sore at all.

*just realized I said almost the same thing a month ago, but still true*
it literally is even better now. before i'd shift my weight once in a while if there was the slightest tingle, but that never happens anymore

*sigh* For the sake of comfort it feels like I might have to bite the bullet and get this... Still not loving it a 100% though...
Since I've got two seats now, I'll get my original reupholstered and try that first. If that doesn't work out, then I might just get myself a corbin seat...
