Anniversary gifts

Well this year my loverly wife and I celebrated 25 years of wedded life together. Someone asked what it was like..... I said it was like 10 minutes.....underwater..... with someones foot on my neck!!!!
Just kidding, its been great, My wife went out and ordered me a custom Corbin Dual Canyon Leather seat! Sweet! Rode with it today.... great seat, comfy and looks like something I can sit on for many hours a day!

Some can't...some won't.... I might!

Congratulations on your anniversary! It's always good to hear that marriages can last. Wishing you many more years and keep your nose above water.

Congrats on the anniversary. I'm curious to see what the Corbin is like for a long ride. The stock seat on the 12+ is a killer after an hour (Sorry, can't call it a Glee).

We interrupt this marriage to bring you the riding season.

Out for an hour today, two up, seems much firmer and supportive than stock seat... will post again after a longer ride.

Did she get it from A Vicious Cycle or Two Wheel in Guelph?

Congratulations on your 25 years! And a great gift too.

My wife and I celebrate 24 years today. Just got my first bike, a DL650, two weeks ago, when I asked her she said, why not. She's a keeper...

She bought it direct from Corbin... way to go girl... She is pretty brave with buying stuff on the WEB. Only took 3 weeks from order to delivery.
Super happy with the seat so far. Another 250 kms yesterday and other than slight and minor discomforts.... alls good. I have found this seat still pushes you forward unless you keep your knees clamped onto the tank. The bruising is starting to fade so I don't have to wear a turtleneck anymore.... I am very glad about this as a turtleneck makes me look like a bottle of roll on deodorant......
