The Corbin is a stiff seat but comfortabel, I use a Air Hawk for longer rides and can do 500 miles in a day without a problem.

I seriously doubt you will be able to get one in 10 days, but I highly reccomend the Russell Day Long Seat. These are custom fitted to the rider, using photos and information you give them.

As you did not give his size or weight, asking us for opinions is a bit useless, partly because many of us do not hve the yamaha. Everyones butt is a bit diffrent and seats are very subjective. Most "heavier" folks like the Mustangs, and smaller riders seem to like the Corbins, but again, this is a vague generalization.
I do know that eveyone I spoke to or read about that got the Russell was 100% happy with it.

The Gold Wing crowd really likes the Russell brand of custom-made seats.

If you are interested, you can check them out at the following link:

In any case, Merry Xmas, and good luck with your search....!!!
