500 mile trip on a new mono Corbin!

Yes, Corbin made me a seat! It is more than awesome. I got off to get gas around 150 miles or so after I left Hollister and jumped off the bike like a champ! As if I had never ridden! It was UNBELIEVABLE! Riding up there on my stock classic seat, I just about died riding from San Diego to North Los Angeles. 3.5 hours with traffic. Not just not fun but amazingly painful to the extent that I could barely sleep that night in LA at my friends house. I used a 6 inch foam cushion purchased at a fabric store to cope with it. Uh huh! If you haven't felt this, well your a much stronger person than I for sure! Hats off to you.
If youve felt this pain you must get a Corbin, or at least a Cortisone shot after the ride. Pardon the drama, I wouldn't have complained as I love my bike but that sucked worse than dropping a bike on the day of purchase while leaving the dealership!
My first attempt at pics located herein.
BTW, Corbin used my bike as their model on their website. I believe it is called the gunfighter or the like. I'm not too much on detail...life too short, sorry.

Liking the lines on that seat. Would love to see it on a bike that doesn't have the classic's rear fender to see how the lines flow.

Any idea how much they are charging for it? Do they need the stock seat (sacrifice) or does it come complete?

They do not need the stocker. Check the website but it seems the solo seats for other bikes run form 350 to 450. Best wishes!

Can you see they have made it much wider in the "used" area. That's what the standard seat needs, width, not just more foam for height.

Wow! not bad. I've had three Corbin seats made, all came out good, (after dealing with some fitting issues ...) I'm sure they are good to deal with in person.
I'll have to check into this seat. Hope the other after market seat makers (La Pera) take note too.
Thanks,
Rod

Pete, how much higher is this seat than your OEM one?

Also can you take a photo from the top looking down? I'd like to see how it compares for width against the Corbin I have for my Kawasaki.


It looks great though. I'm jealous.

Looks great Pete. However, this makes the bike a solo bike only right? Based on the pics I don't think you could put another person on it. Can you confirm.

That looks really good! I'm not a big fan of the logo and Italy colors on it, but it still looks great. I'd rock that all day.

Me too.. I prefer no Corbin logo and no Italian flag.. But want my big bold "DUCATI" white letters on the rear, like my stock icon. Nevertheless, I think that seat is beautiful and looks comfy. From day one, I've wanted a solo seat because when i twist the throttle I nudge backward every time

yes, I will get a top down pic. Give me a little time. It took me a bit to figure out how to upload the photo. I am 5'7" or just under and I'd say it raised it a half inch at most. I had a triumph tiger 800xc, so I am used to tall bikes now. I can still put my feet 90% flat on the ground, as opposed to 95% with the stocker.
