Corbin owner near Jacksonville?
« on: May 01, 2017, 12:31:29 am »
My 2012 C14 had a Sargeant seat that was on it when I bought it. Unfortunately, it does not seem fit my rear as well as the Corbin I had on my C10  :'(
Is there anyone within a reasonable distance from Jacksonville FL that has a Corbin on their C14 that would let me Sit on it for test purposes?  I'd hate to spend the $$ for a Corbin, and find out it's no better than the Sargeant.
TIA!
Jorge

I live in Atlanta area but I have a Corbin seat on the 08 Concours that I just bought. The seat seems to be well used so cant tell if the model type. I have attached a photo of what it looks like. I think this is the modular type but I am preferring the stock one as this one seems to make me slide back and forth. The passenger seat does help as a backrest and support though.

Hi Ram,
Yup, that's the modular, the one (I think) I'm interested in trying.
I have the rubber grip pads on mine, so i don;t expect I would have the sliding problem.
I'll keep you in mind if I happen to be in your neck of the woods.

Eddie, I just texted you.
I forgot to update this... I bought one just before I left for the National.
I find it to be a much better fit for my rear than the Sargent I had. Not knocking Sargent since we're all shaped differently, but for my rear, Corbin is much better.
look for a Sargent going up for sale soon  :)
