Yes, agree with GSXS-NH; the pictures are great. I wanted to see the 'slope' or angle of the rider portion with the seat on the bike and your pics show that really clearly. In a way, the Corbin seat is a BETTER setup than the OEM seat from the standpoint of accessing the battery area. With the stock seat, you have to remove the passenger seat, then get an allen wrench to remove the rider seat. With the Corbin seat, you insert the key, turn, then lift off the whole unit, giving you access to everything at one time. And you are right, with the 'tabs' at the front and the lock at the back, combined with that really stiff and heavy 'base pan', that seat isn't going anywhere until you want it to be removed. Now you have me tempted. I really just want the FRONT seat, but they don't do it that way. I'm going to visit my local upholstery shop and see what they can do first by modifying the stock unit. If their work turns out to be a flop, it looks like Corbin will be getting some of my money...again.

I'm looking for another seat than the stock that would be safer and more comfortably for a pillion.

Thanks,

No, I haven't got one. So far, the stock seat has been "good enough". First stock seat I've ever ridden that hasn't been murder on my ass.
mike d and Lasse like this.

"Its designed to look like a crouching beast"
