Seriously considering upgrading my stock 2011 Vision seat for either a Mustang or the Corbin. I know there have been several threads written on this subject, but rather than dig through the archives, I will ask for some new input from anyone who has made the change. Both are priced within about $100.00 of each other, so that is not going to be a deciding factor. I also might consider the Russell seat although I think they are a bit more. Thanks in advance for the help.

I looked and researched the various seats and decided on the Corbin seat. My wife and I rode to Hollister, CA and they manufactured the seat (leather, dual seat, trunk backrest, and drivers backrest) using a new seat pan while we waited. They also shipped the stock seat to my home.

As many have stated, the Corbin seat is firmer than most manufacture?s seats. The stock seat was comfortable, however, my tailbone would become sore after long rides and that made me decided on a firmer seat. The seat is firm but after getting some ridding time the seat has formed well to my derriere. As a result, I?m able to take long trips that are more comfortable and less fatiguing.

The brand and type of seat varies for each individual (similar to what motor oil you should use). Your physical size, shape, and weight may also be a determining factor on the seat you choose.

I put a Russell Day Long (RDL) seat on my 2003 Honda ST1300. It was very comfortable, but then traded it in on my '13 VV. I have still ride long distances on the stock seat.

I have had 5 Corbin seats on my Gold Wings then on the Visions I have had would not go without one as I am a big guy and all other caused hot spots after long ride as they squished down. I will ride with Corbin for the rest of my riding life
