I'm going to get lowered pegs and see how much that helps. I also like to be able to move around on the seat and the prominent dish for the rider kept me stuck in one spot.

Since I never carry a pillion, I think I'm just going to replace it with a stock seat if I can find one. Maybe keep the Corbin around in case it grows on me more.

IMHO The Corbin on the 1100/1150 is THE best seat for comfort! I hated the weight of the seat pan (fiberglass, really?), but the seat was great!
