Didn't like the stock seat, so I went out and bought the willie g.
You sit a little lower, which is nice but it is made out of the same seat material. Not much better for the money. But if you want the best seat you can buy? Get a corbin. I bought a corbin solo and it is GREAT!!!!!
You also sit lower and the seat bucket is wider. You will not be sorry.
p.s. I have 9k miles on my v-rod and seat.
I just bought the Willie G seat. I like it. It is much better than the stock seat. I found the stock seat to make me slide downward in the saddle somewhat because it has no defined back line it is just curved like a cradle. With the Willie G. seat it has a straight line back with an almost right angle which gives the seat some defination. I do like the lower seating height too. It is definatley stiffer than my broken in stock seat but i think once it breaks in it is going to be even more comfortable.
I looked into the corbin seats online but i have heard so many bad things about there customer service that i didnt want to chance no liking a seat and not being able to return or exchange. (yeah, i suppose i took the easy way out)
One other thing......the Willie G seat i got was discounted 30% of retail. I was told with all the 100 anniv stuff comming out that they wanted to move it. So it ended up costing me $202.00.
I too have switched from the stock to the Willie G. and love it. It looks much better, in my opinion, and is far more comfortable, especially after 500 or so miles. The Corbin may be comfortable but so is a LazyBoy and that is pretty much what the Corbin looks like.
