Corbin for stock

So I'm thinking about going back to a stock seat. Especially since my Corbin as now a little "used" (as g00gl3 so graciously pointed out). I've gotten in touch with some members with seats for sale at reasonable prices for excellent condition; however, I'm gonna put out feelers for opinions and potential trades. My (more than gently used) Corbin for your stock seat? For pics of how used it is... I'll be right back...

I may be interested. What's it look like?

You know, honestly, a little leather treatment and that would be hardly noticeable.

No to hijack your possible sale/trade, but do you want to sacrifice the comfort of the Corbin for looks?

Or try the Sargent route....

Oh, and that was off my troll soapbox ;-D

What you can't see is the seat is actually ripped. Not bad since you can't tell unless you're right on it. Easily repairable (which I'm contemplating). Since it's 1:30AM pics will come tomorrow if desired.

Hmmm, yeah, couldn't really see the ripped part; although it does match the new theme of your bike.

Another option is to get it recovered.

I'm back to a stock seat, yes. I had the Corbin, but it was too high for my wife and figured I'd try the Sargent route. Maybe if I'd had the gunfighter style like PVSTER's it would have been different?

Loved my Corbin, though. I hope the Sargent can keep up in comfort.

Yeah that seat just cups my narrow ass so damn well... Immediately after I started this thread I realized I should have PM'd SSATX and/or beefsalad for a meet up so I can sit on a stocker before I take the plunge back to one. Corbin came with the bike<< lucky me!
