Last weekend the OL and I rode up Hwy 101 350 miles to Hollister for our saturday appointment to have a custom seat made for our 02 Heritage. Jack had the seatpan and standard foam ready and waiting then asked if we needed any changes. Yeah, since she uses the regular sissybar, make the rear of the seat 2 inches longer, top the whole thing with soft foam, and sand down those big side edges digging into my cheeks and thighs so I can be comfortable at a stoplight. We rode around the parking lot, came back and said it's good. 2 hours later the leather was stitched and riveted, and we were on our way to the Kamping kabin at the Santa Margarita Lake KOA campground. Somewhere around Carmel my butt was getting real sore but I figured Corbins need a break-in period. By the time we got to San Luis Obispo, my ass was on fire! I felt like I was sitting on a phone pole, and couldn't wait to get off the bike. Well, I got home and rode it some more, and then decided to go back to Corbin. I left friday at 12:30 am, rode all night, got there early, and Jack redid the seat. He added the side and front support foam that I originally had him sand off, and he made the foam just like their standard Dual Tour seat. I made sure it felt right this time, and I could feel the support was good all around. He said sanding off all the side support was a mistake the first time but he figured I knew what I was doing. Got done by 11am, then rode back Hwy 5 the 350 miles, and got home by 5:30pm. When I got back I knew the seat was right! I was comfortable and happy, and now I have a Corbin backrest for those long rides. So I guess the lesson is Corbin knows how to contour a seat right, and if you go there, spend a lot of time listening to the tech's suggestions.
