aftermarket seat

The Corbin "Holeshot" dual seat the lady and I have been trying to get used to just isn't working as well as other Corbins we've enjoyed on other rides we've owned.

In the Corbin lineup, has there been other than a "Holeshot" style (2-up) for a 2012 Wee?

Does anyone have an aftermarket saddle for this bike they aren't using anymore? Please contact peter.tamblyn at gmail dot com with price if you have something that might work.

(Finally got my account "fully" re-registered so posting what I PM'd.)

I'm not familiar with the "Holeshot" Corbin seat but I bought the Canyon Dual Sport saddle for my 2012 DL650 back in 2013. Best. Decision. Ever. I've put on 30k since then (including an IronButt 50CC) and my only regret is not paying extra to get the heated option. :-D

Had my seat customized (lowered, narrowed, and memory foam) from a place in Maiden North Carolina. They have a web site. Was n't all that expensive and seems pretty good. Only had it a few months but the long days (200 + miles) have been OK. They have a lot of references might be worth checking out. Just Google Mean City Cycles, [email protected],
