    The stock seat is ok, but after 300 miles today I was feeling it. I've used Corbins on all bikes I've owned in the past, but wondering what you might be running and feedback?

    Also, I'm thinking the extended reach seat might be better or even equal to the Corbin. Thoughts?

    I love the OEM RM seat- I've put them on both my Chieftains.
    Some of the guys here prefer their Ultimate seats.
    I think @Dan_Frisbie has had the widest variety of them and has the bulk of the house's experience on this topic. Make sure you get his take.

    I'm also going to sell my current RM seat and have Corbin make me one in Triple Matte Black.

    I received and installed my Corbin. Its great. I have about 200 miles in it and it's like every other Corbin I've owned. Firm, but supportive. I will more than likely send it back for re-work (you get one for free) this winter and have it deepened by about 1" or so.

    Hey.....that's the one I want! I just want to add heat. Does yours accept the OEM backrest?

    No, the backrest slots are completely different.

    Thanks. I needed to know that. Is the bracket in the seat, or extra?

    It comes with a mounting hole for a Corbin backrest.

    I'm looking into the Saddleman Road Sofa. Don't know yet, I've only used Ultamate but they won't be ready till the end of the year.

    I ordered a Corbin last week. 4-6 weeks to delivery.
