Just trying to gain wisdom from the experienced, anybody here ever try a Corbin on their XB12XT/ X?
I find the standard seat pretty comfortable, but I hear the Corbin has a narrow front (better foot down at traffic lights) and sits you about 2" further back (am finding this is where I seem to sit naturally on the standard seat

Hi Pash, if the piping was blue or black I would bite your arm off, how did you get on with it? Silly question seeing your prepared to sell it.

Never fitted it as I have no issues with the stock seat. Try it out if you like.

Thanks Pash very generous offer, will look into a way of getting hold of,
Found myself with a sum money that I had been saving toward an AST shock for the M2 (so that I could ride with a passenger, standard shock does not cope 2 up), since getting the Uly that need has gone. Find myself trying to make the Uly the best that it could be and wonder whether a Corbin would make a good bike even better.

Corbyn on an XB12?
Did he promise to pay for your petrol, cap the insurance, abolish the road tax and give you free tuition? :roll:

No, but he did say that as a Buell owner I qualify as an oppressed minority (with probable undiagnosed Buell related depression), a social worker has been assigned for me and my 2 bastard Buell dependants.
Have heard that if I had a 3rd Buell, I might have enough points for a £1M flat (definitely , if the bike was an import without the correct documentation to be on the road). ;)

The standard seat on the 2006 Ulysses is the most comfortable I've ridden on.

I had a corbin on my s3 and it was hideously uncomfortable. The stock seat was much nicer and weighed about 1/3 as much.

Dont buy one until you have tried it for 50 miles plus.

I second nicks comment.
