RE: Corbin Gunfighter seat
Put a gunfighter on my cb last summer. Made a huge difference in comfort and cruising range for me. With stock seat I had to get off after an hour or so to walk around and get the feeling back in my backside.
No problem with the gunfighter, plus it's big enough to have a little extra room to change positions once in a while.
My second best change I've made to the bike.

Agreed - thanks for the feedback. I hear they get better over time too, as they break in. That was the case with my Valkyrie.... a little different style, but the seat just got better and better.

RE: Corbin Gunfighter seat
My Corbin seat was VAST improvement over stock, as I have posted here before. I've had other Corbins over the years and always liked them. I paid a little extra and waited a little longer as I had them move the hump-break back an inch, as I am tall. Don't know why Honda can't make a good seat, since most of their other stuff is fantastic. -- but as far as the name goes, 'Gunslinger and lady' is the stupidest name ever conceived for any product in the history of man

Ditto those seat comments. Stock seat is a 2x4 covered with pleather.

RE: Corbin Gunfighter seat
I have a gunfighter seat for my '13, hate it. The padding is raised on either side and make it uncomfortable for long rides. Put the stock seat back on. I'm going to sell the Corbin. I was pretty disappointed considering the rave reviews I've read over the years. YMMV.

RE: Corbin Gunfighter seat
Hi. Thanks for your post. I have taken long rides on the stock seat and feel a pinch on inner thighs after more then about an hour and a half and some feeling loss on my backside. Deffiinitely looking for something more comfortable for long rides,100miles+. I like the humpback look of the corbin too. I have read about sargent (spelling?) seats but not familiar with them at all. Willing to listen to other opinions on good looking seats for long rides.

RE: Corbin Gunfighter seat
I did a 4,000 mile trip with a brand new Corbin last summer, 1,700 with my wife on the back. It was superb. It's firm and you do sit back a bit more, but there's room to adjust. It worked for me.

perfect examples of why it's hard to take personal opinions from the internet as gospel. You just have to give it a shot and something may or may not work for you.

RE: Corbin Gunfighter seat
I bought the Gunfighter and Lady seat last year for my 2013--works fine for my wife and I when she wants to ride, which is not often for some reason. Much more comfortable than original for sure.
Put a "Russel Day Long" on my BMW RT, and it is the best seat for all day comfort that I have experienced, but also very pricey!

RE: Corbin Gunfighter seat
I had one and sold it. I wasn't that I didn't like the seat, it was comfy on my bum, BUT I am really tall at 6'4" and the Corbin just held me too far forward to be comfy. I guess I sit a little farther back on the seat than the size they designed the seat for. It pulled my legs up past the tank cut outs, and made the reach a little too short. Oddly it was totally uncomfortable.

Anyway, I don't have any complaints about the seat itself, I just thought it would be god to warn others who were tall in the saddle, that it might not fit. Definitely, if you are over 6'2" try to sit on one before you buy.

Since then I have decided that I like the flatness of the stock seat. It allows me to wiggle around and change positions easily on long rides. I think if I get another it will be the Daytona, or I might build onto the stocker and add an inch of memory foam.
