Corbin Smuggler trunk arrived and installed today
« on: September 14, 2011, 02:15:04 am »
I had them paint the top lid to match the trunk in 09 black, they normally come with the lid in a carbon fiber look, I'm happy with how it turned out.  :great:

The shocker was I ordered this last week, they said 4 to 6 weeks, it arrived today!!  :o ;D

Here's some pics...  :beerchug:

For such a radical idea, and mounting position, I cannot believe how cool it looks. I want one.

How tough is it to remove and add the pillion seat back on?

About 10 seconds RC! It's just like pulling off and putting back on the rear passenger Corbin seat, same latch...  :beerchug:

THANK YOU SO MUCH for posting this.



I was really debating between a corbin and a snuggler and a sargant with a pod. This looks great. I think you settled my mind once and for all. Stupid question, but I assume it has its own key or was Corbin able to match your key by #?

They do look pretty good. I am a little jealous though. I have had 2 corbins on order for about a month now.  Supposedly, they are going to ship today.  This is the third promised ship date. 

Is there any way that a person could sit back there in an emergency? If one of our bikes ever broke down and my wife had to ride on the back of one of the bikes, do you suppose she could for a short distance?

If you don't bother buying the passenger seat it saves you a couple hundred bones.

Also, ZG, who made your tank protector bra thingie?

Very Nice!!!  I'm debating between one of those and the full trunk.  I definately like how Corbin's boxes match the lines of the bike.  How does it function for you as a backrest?  I've heard the Corbin seats have a bit more room than stock seat so do you have to scoot back a good way to get your back on the backrest?  Also, does it actually provide much support?

Really dig the looks.

In an emergency you could remove just the Smuggler and have the passenger sit on a folded towel or something.

The Corbin being two piece makes it easy to change. But ZG already had the two piece seat before he purchased the smuggler. It should be just a matter of swapping the smuggler out for the rear seat section. Maybe would take all of ten seconds.  But it is an expensive proposition buying both heated seat and smuggler. You could just buy the front section and the smuggler. But then there will be no two up riding. But you gotta do what you gotta do.

Agreed, as the Cap'n said it's a 10 second swap out when mama wants to go for a ride...  :great:
