most comfy, all-day touring seat?
Written by gibinmich on 6/17/2010 at 02:35 pm

I was satisfied with the stock seat but on longer trips would use a sheepskin. I
didn't notice a big difference using the sheepskin on my 4000mi.+ trip last
month with the Corbin seat. I used it most of the time anyway just because I had
it along even though the temps were over 90 degrees for a number of days. My
Corbin has the adjustable back rest so I would just cram the sheepskin
underneath it to hold it down. A small REI style cushion might be just the
ticket.

Sit on the cushion and open the valve to let out enough air that you don't feel
like you're sitting on a bubble and voila! I'm good for a bun burner.

    I used the stock seat back in July, 1998 when I bought my 1998 PC800 new from the dealer (too bad more people didn't). During the first week of ownership I rode to Marysville, Ohio for the 1998 Honda Homecoming. Half way there, about 3 hours,

    I thought my stock seat was comfortable enough until my latest PC came with a Corbin. It took a little getting use to the firmness but after hopping back and forth between the old and new bike its obvious that the Corbin is much more comforta

    I have the stock seat and am fine with it for most rides. However, if I know I'm going to be in the saddle all day, I use a small sponge-filled air cushion from REI that cost less than $30. http
