Corbin vs Sargent

I've tried a sargent and even though the back is wider than stock that doesn't due much good as I still slide forward pinching the jewels, I hear the corbins pretty hard but does it keep you sitting back in the saddle w/o sliding forward? I'm 6' with a 32" inseam.

Everyones normal till you get to know them:mod_lol:

Simply remove the jewels. Problem solved.

I think she means remove them and send them to her.

I think I'll take a nap.

Corbins are crappy, real heavy fiberglass construction and hard like a brick. Sargent has a factory like plastic base and a good for 700-800 miles a day.

Change you can believe in? biggest waste of tax- payer money in the history of the US.

I slide forward on my Corbin with the same problem under braking, however I purposly slide forward and to the side going into a tight turn. More in control that way.

To each his own... I had a Corbin on my last bike and it was awesome. Yes, it's hard, but it was the most comfortable seat I've ever owned. They have to be broken in like a good set of leather boots. It was good for 800 to 1000 miles a day, day after day.

I've sat on a corbin but it was on a BMW which was fine. My strom with 3 different seats the stock, a sargent and now a steve gowings seat all have the same problem, I end up in the narrow front part, if they have a seat for the strom that lets you sit back I want one now! I don't care if I slide forward during braking, tha's not an issue on long trips. As far as hard, that's why I have my AK sheepskin.
