If you want we can meet up one weekend and you can take the Versys for a spin with Stef and see how you both like it. I know the version for the 500X will be a little different but it should give you both some idea of what to expect from that seat.

I did notice that it was firm. But that is better then too soft. There is a 500X in Ar that I could go up and ride. I may just have to make that trip. The only problem i see with it on the 500 is it makes no change to the rear.

Really? Mine included new foam for the rear too, it was 2 separate pieces in the box. It made the rear seating area a little wider and taller with slightly more rigidity. I would email them and ask them about that. Also, you get a discount and free shipping if you tell them your an ADV member.

it may change the foam but it looks to have the same slant to it. if it changes it its not enough to see.

It looks like the Corbin moves the passenger back some. This may cause some issues for Stef if you plan on running side cases.

that's one of the things we looked at and it looks like that's actually where she sits. I have my soft bags on there now and they don't effect her. she can move all the way back to lean back on the top box and not cause a problem. I do have her scoot forward on gravel tho, the bike handles better that way.

actually if you look at the tabs sticking down on the grab handles the Corbin seat adds some to the front of the rear seat.
