I'm just the opposite.

The Corbin is very nice. I still have to take a break every now and then, but that's my riding style anyway. My butt is no longer the limiting factor in my riding.

The custom Rick Mayer seat just didn't fit me after two attempts. A custom seat is a good idea if you can do a ride-in. For me, the mail-order custom just didn't work out.

Thanks for the trade, Paul.

I also own a Suzuki Gel seat, which is pretty good for me. I added a heating element for colder weather. I still get monkey butt with it, but it's lasted me quite a few miles, so I can't complain. A Sargent I owned was comparable to the Suzuki Gel in my view, but considering the cost difference, I sold the Sargent.
