Will post a thread about it when we return. With photos.
My wife and I took our cruiser up the BRP from end to end..... We spent the night in Cherokee where we started early on a cool, wet, quiet morning and had the start of the BRP to ourselves. Second night we spent in Blowing Rock......awesome and great night. Enoy the trip.

I spent a couple of nights in Blowing Rock myself, I wasn't on the bike though. Pretty cool place. There was an old plantation house that was turned into a museum not too far from there just off the BRP. Can't remember the name of it but it gets quite a few visitors.

Congratulations on the seat. Getting the tag would be a great way to break it in but the weather may not cooperate.

Be safe.

Not even going to chance it today, besides it's Cinco De Mayo and my favorite Mexican restaurant is holding it's celebrations. I need to get there early. I'm not one to be late.

Well, guess what, the seat won't go on unless I pull the luggage rack. This bites a big one. I guess I'll have a new Corbin seat up for sale.

I got a Corbin for my VStrom and it turned the bike into an all day bike. What a great investment.

Can you change up the rack for less $$$ than selling the Corbin?

Wife suggested remove the rack, put the seat on and quit whining like a baby. Take all the stuff under the seat and put it in the boxes.


Hmmmm....I knew there was a reason I married her.

Cinco De Mayo was awesome tonight. Picked up a nice Corona Cooler as a door prize!

I have a Corbin on my Bandit and it is a great, day long seat. The stock seat is good for two hours and then pressure points set in.
