And i guess to add a little salt to this wound, Corbin will not sell seat pans alone and to just replace the seat alone will cost approximately $414.00 and will be about 3 to 4 weeks to make.  Last time they said this it took them 3 months to make.  What to do........... more than likely i will be posting the smuggler trunk up for sale.  This just makes me sick.   :'(

Sorry for your pains brother, that really sux...  :(

FWIW there's a Corbin seat for sale in the classifieds section on here, you might want to check that out...

If you opt to walk away and do decide to sell the smuggler trunk let me know, I might be interested in buying it from you.

Thanks ZG, you'll be the first to know if I opt out of the smuggler.  ;)

Final Update:

So today I was finally able to talk with the FedEx driver who miss delivered my seat to the wrong address.  The driver apologized over and over and stated he wasn't sure of the address so he just guessed and left it at an address close to me.  He couldn't even give me the correct address he had delivered it too!!  Can you believe this guy!!   :38: 

So i spoke with the guys manager and told him what his driver told me, he was not happy.  I was finally able to get the driver to describe to me the house and knew right away which one it was and was able to retrieve the seat minutes later.   :)  What a headache.   :confuse:  My phone number was even on the package!!!   >:(

I am glad it is over with and I am notting having to fork out a lot of $$$ to get a new seat again. :clap:

I'm glad your seat ordeal is over. I had a box of M/C parts  mis-delivered  by UPS. I found where they had delivered the parts. I went  to the address and was met by a non English speaking female. My Spanish doesn't cover motor cycle parts but was handed the box.

Be sure to let us know how you like the new seat.

Great news but I am wondering why the resident who had the box never called Fedex or you as your number was on the box.  wtf

Post up some pics.   Another example of Seths customer service offering to replace it

I went riding on the new seat for about an hour and love it.  It is like a night and day difference from the original corbin seat to now.  Having owned several seats from different manufactures i must say this most reminds of my old Russell Day Long seat since Seth Laam re-worked it,  it's very comfortable.  I will provide a more detail review in a few days.    ;)

Yeah I was quite irritated with them about that.  He didn't even apologize.  I'll post up some pics here shortly.  :)

What a story.  I get either Fed Ex or UPS everyday and last week there were 3 packages delivered from UPS and they just threw them in my driveway. I have a drive that is about 100 feet long and it looked like he tossed them out of the truck as he was driving by.

You have much more patience than I do. Glad you finally have your seat.
