Got to talk to Mike Corbin w/ corbin seats

Very cool guy,

Rory and I were admiring a BMW in the corbin lot at sturgis. He walked up and said, "you guys can sit on it if you want" We chatted about the improvements he made, the removable trunk, the carbon windscreen, etc. He walked us over to the online catalog, while continuing to shoot the bull........Rory spotted some weird Yamaha warrior powered sportbike (kinda like a buell) and said, "hey you can't get one of these over here". Mike smiled and said, "no, you can't" I'll post pictures tonight. It was an awesome bike, I loved how it looked, and it was very comfortable. He was able to import because californian has a clause saying you can import if you're going to make aftermarket parts and export them.......

who can I email the pictures to ???

VOZZIE!!! what yer email again..........

Wow, I know somebody who offered a sweetheart deal on a cherry red-piped Corbin to somebody a month ago and the potential recipient blew the benefactor off.

Go figure.

I didn't buy one, yet. Yes, I'm an asshat.

I'll probably buy a corbin for the KTM first anyways. skinny seats hurt.

Did you ask him why Corbin seats are hard as a rock?

Plus the pan of the seat for a 12R is for someone 300 lbs, not to mention its as hard as brick.

because research have shown harder seats are more comfortable. Rory was complaining about his. He told him, "just break it in a little"

Honda car seats are hard. They are very comfortable on long trips. Ever noticed that?

I love my Corbin seats. Admittedly, there seems to be just as many riders who hate them as us that like 'em.
