Based on feedback from this forum and others, if you can put up with a poor fit and lousy customer service then the Corbin is the perfect ticket. If you would rather the seat fit then go with Sargent or Rick Mayer.

Thumbs down

I've got one and I hate it.
Weighs a ton, hard as stone, poor fit, doesn't even come with the bail for the latch.

Just got back from Rick Mayer's a week ago and love the seat he made for my 06 K1200GT. Scheduled a ride in appointment to have a seat made for my KLR and wound up getting the GT seats done too. Afterwards we (Rick and Seth(sorry about the spelling) and I) did a 75 mile loop in what he called his "backyard" and at this time of year it is beautiful and the roads are some of the finest I have ridden. Thanks Rick! You can also send the seat to him and he will fix it up nice. He is easy to find on the Internet or look in most cycle magazines or BMWMOA magazine.

I got one - like it, like looks, is on the firm side - no complaints.

I like the smuggler, but the size of the smuggler makes the seat shorter front-to-back. It is hard. It is heavy. I think I like it better than stock, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it's comfortable. In all fairness though, I've never been on any other seats for comparison.
