The foam that Corbin uses is designed that way on purpose. Its called "support" which your stock seat lacks. The firmer foam is much better on your backside over a long distance ride. And the Corbin does tend to "break in" unlike alot of other manufacturer's seats. They are a great seat and well worth the price!!Texxen said:I just bought a '01 FatBoy. The seat sucks!! I was looking at a Corbin until I read the foam they use is twice as hard/stiff as a stock seat so I passed. I am buying a Lepera "Sorrento Sport" Monday. I'll let everyone know my opinion when I get it and ride and put some miles on it! oh yea...I wiegh 175lbs...which probably makes a difference....
Doc, I'm 5'10" and about 215. I replaced the stock seat on my RK with the H-D Touring Seat because I wasn't really all that comfortable on longer trips and wife REALLY wasn't. While it has improved, I think I'll be switching to a Mustang seat sometime in next year or so. Everyone I've ever talked to swears by the Mustangs.Doc Naumo said:I concur. My RK Classic seat sucks! After an hour or so my but hurts and my legs start to ache. From my research, it is caused by being too soft and not enough support (I'm 5'10" 175).
I was looking at HD touring seats, but could find nothing on their composition. Like it is a secret or something. I love their bikes, I'm just not that crazy about some of the parts they use on it
