I do agree with the others. I also have a Corbin seat on my SV and it has conformed to the shape of my nether regions well.

As far as mileage and range, my SV, with over 100,000 miles, is getting better mileage than ever. Some tanks I am at over 160 miles before the reserve light comes on. I usualy have a full gallon left when I fill, even after finding a station. I estimated about 55 mpg my last tank.
It;s nice to see other SVrider members here finally.
The Corbin works for me and makes a huge difference. The SV takes a lot of miles to run in and I too am getting in the low 50s for mpg and that is usually 2-up and around 60 lbs of gear. my 08 only has 25k on it but I am working on it :)
