Hey, I'm finding the stock seat isn't very comfortable. I'm 6'4" and 240 lbs. That's without boots so I'm a bit bigger than the average bear. The problem is that my knees are higher than my tailbone so it shifts my weight back uncomfortably. I started with removing the butt rest. That let me stretch my legs out a little and that helped. The catch is that I prefer a touring type posture. Has anyone gotten a custom seat maybe from Russell or Rick or Bill Mayer? If so, what did you think?

If you feel like a nice ride. Corbin has a place out in California.
You make an appointment.
Ride in.
They custom make a seat to fit your body.
Ride out that afternoon with a custom seat.

Russell Day long will do the same thing. The best part is that Russell uses your seat pan, so the finished product fits.

for floridians . Corbin has a store just off I95 in Ormond Beach. They told me I could sit on one before coughing up $500.00.

When you call Corbin for a seat, one of the first things they want to know is your height & weight, and any issues you are having with your current seat and comfort issues. Tell them what your issues are, and they will build the seat so address those issues. If you can visit the factory, so much the better. I am 5'11, so I did not have any major issues except that the stock seat was VERY uncomfortable for me after 2 or 3 hours. I've had the Corbin for a year now, and am quite pleased with it. Expensive, but when you factor in the increased usability of the bike, it is worth it to me. I just took a 600 mile, 13 hour, day trip a week ago, and had absolutely no seat comfort issues. small moped

Stock seat
Butt-rest removed
Utopia backrest
AirHawk ( which I can keep and move )
Alaskan Sheepskin ( which I can keep and move )

With the raised seat from the Alaskan Sheepskin and Airhawk, I can even move back in the seat further ( higher on the buttrest ramp ) and still be very comfortable due to the Utopia backrest ... which I equate to sitting in a Lazboy recliner.

I do the same thing except I used the Jac Vinson adapter to raise the buttrest up so it cradles my lower back. That with the Airhawk and Alaska sheepskin work just fine for me and I've ridden 700 miles straight from El Paso, TX to my sister's house in Cathedral City, CA and felt no discomfort. Someday though I will probably get a custom seat. They do look very nice and would probably be better for my 6'0" 230 llb body, but for now I'm okay with this setup.

I bought a sheepskin and a beaded seat. Didn't care for the beads, but the sheepskin is nice. It ripped and the hooks didn't work, so I rebuilt it and it's pretty comfortable in the heat. I'm thinking a backrest conversion would do the trick until I get a custom seat.
