Question Corbin Seat?

Just wondering if anybody has one of these fitted yet - if so - any impressions would be welcome.

I put a corbin on my R6 many years ago. Looking at the photo, you'll probably have the same gripe I did: those high bolsters outboard of the butt cheeks just kill movement in turns. Good cruising down the road but, if you get in to twisties or like getting her over in a turn, you'll just get hung up on that side bolster. Wouldn't be bad to swap in for long rides. I hated it on my R6 and the way I ride my Strada would be equally disappointing.

Corbin...

Not yet, but I have one on order... I have been pestering Corbin, regularly asking when they were going to make on for the 2013 HyperS.
I have a Corbin on my Triumph Tiger 1050... And love it. I hated the seat on the HyperS from day 1. I do some pretty long tours 6,000 - 8,000 km trips each summer, always on the Tiger, and since i got the HyperS, because of the Stock seat. Only do weekenders on the HyperS because of the stock seat.... The Corbin "should" elevate the HyperS for more touring use.

I went ahead and ordered join a few weeks ago. Once I get it in, I'll provide my opinion and pictures. I had a Corbin on my FZ6 a few years ago and really liked it. For the most part, I like the stock seat. I do not, however, like the slight forward canting of the pelvis and I am hoping that the Corbin will solve that issue.

It is a lot of money to spend on something that not many people have given their input on and cannot be returned, but YOLO (haha).
