seat?

So if you had your pick what would it be corbin or saddleman or mustang?

New
corbin close to 500
Saddleman 380
Mustang haven't found if you can still get new

The reason i ask is thinking on a new seat i like the look of the corbin but wonder about the longer rides on it being thinner than all the others.

Thanks for any help.

Can't comment on saddleman, but I order a Corbin seat yesterday. Seems they use a special type of padding which supposedly supports better. Mustang no longer makes a seat for us. They would be close in price to Corbin.

My 900c had a mustang seat and it felt worse than the 750's couch.

Corbin for me. Really matters how big your ass is.....

Seriously......seems riders with, uh,"ample" rear ends prefer softer seats.

Looks like i have to save up even more money. I was leaning to the corbin myself the style looked better. Also since i got so much in her i even thought about gettin the rake kit. Might as well go all out right.

Why not try the vn900 seat mod. About $100 and is a much wider seat. I did mine and am very happy.

I put the Saddlemen Classic Explorer on my VN750. Looks great, and was 1000x better than the stock seat.

I have a Vulcan 1500 Seat on my '86....I love it ! It does move me 1" forward (caused by Sissy Bar), but now with my Jardine Forward Controls mounted...all is perfect.
These Jardines are the greatest !

Can I make a request? Can you get a picture of yourself sitting on the bike? I'd like to see where the feet are. Thanks!
