Those F800GS Corbin seats look like my grandma's quilts. Bleh!

Are there any seats out there that look normal? Besides the astronomically expensive Touratechs?

I have a 30" inseam and I have not noticed any problems. I had to go with the standard height seat as the low seat was literally a PITA. I swapped it after a couple of weeks.

I like the cover myself, but you can get any type of leather or vinyl in pretty much any stitching you want.

Hi from a newbie. I saw that someone already mentioned an airhawk seat cushion but I had to add the pic of mine. I find it very comfortable and you can remove it if you want to go offroad and put it back on for a long ride. The corbin does not do it for me

That looks to be an older model, like mine, which used to be called a 'small cruiser'

Here's the manufacturer's site: http://www.therohostore.com/Departme...-Cushions.aspx

Yeah it is the 'small cruiser'. Might be an old model but feels great :)

Hi guys -

This company looks interesting: http://kontourseat.com/index.html

They make a good argument, but I don't know anyone personally who is riding their seat.

This seat work great for me

The beauty of the Cee Bailey saddle is that it is wide so that it can spread you body weight over a broad area and thus not cause any uncomfortable pressure points. Must be why so many CHP, Calif. Highway Patrol officers get their saddles at CB.

Mine has a "Neck Job" very narrow at the front so that my 30" inseam allows my feet to flat foot the ground!
