I want to "upgrade" my stock saddle with something with a back rest incorporated in it as 99.8% of the time I will be solo. Gotta Goldwing for 2 up riding.
Anyway, I'm 6'3" and 33" inseam, I felt a bit cramped with that sliding but pad thing so I removed it and now have a much more comfortable position and I can "stretch out"
Back to the saddle question, who has experience with the Corbin seat? I think that's the one that comes with a back rest. I would hate to find that the dished out portion is closer to the front than the stock seat W/O the butt pad thing.
OR anyone know of a back rest that will mount using the existing brackets?

I ordered one from Corbin and told them to move the butt part back 1 in.

They did and I like it.

Call them and see how much they can move it back for you. Maybe 2-3""

When you order a corbin seat, they ask several questions including height, weight, and inseam. They use this information to tailor the seat to your proportions and the bike it is being ordered for. As was mentioned earlier, if you ask them to adjust the position, they will do so. I have been very pleased with mine.
