Completely agree with this assessment of the Corbin Canyon. I've had them on multiple types of bikes for about 10 years and they happen to be exactly what I want in a seat, but could easily see why others don't like it. For me they allow me to ride easy 3-4hrs or full tank of gas before needing to get off and stretch. Stock seat or gel seat I can do about 1 hour. I also like the Corbin seat being so hard and slippery that when I am cornering it allows me to slide around with ease.I bought my 2014 DL1000 used and it came with the Corbin . I found it to be very heavy , very slippery and hard , and did not fit my butt. I sold it to a man that said it fit him like a glove and he found it very comfortable. Lots of people like them BUT I definitely think you should try before you buy. Go to a spring meet-up event and I'm sure you'll find some Corbin seats there that someone will let you try.
