    Sorry, my search skills suck. Could not find any reviews yet on this new Corbin product here or anywhere else. Probably too soon for any info on the new T-800 Corbin seat. I ordered one a few days after they showed up on the Corbin web site. I may have it by Jan 20 or so. Anyone have one yet, or have one on order?

    I ordered a Corbin seat for my Tiger 800 yesterday. I'll report back in a few months. I think the most reviews I read where on the V-Strom forums.

    Sounds good. I have been reasonally impressed with Corbin's customer service so far. I received a confirmation email within minutes of placing the order online, and got a call later that afternoon asking for clarification about something I'd requested. The only slight disappointment was the following day, when I got another email, this one another confirmation of my order plus the final cost with shipping ($55 to TN) and estimated shipping date (3-4 weeks). I had expected the shipping date would be closer to 2 weeks as their web page indicated for their "slow period" - winter. Still, I'm happy with my decision. I will be patient and give the new saddle 2000 miles to break in, which was also on their second email, even though their web page says 1500 miles! I think that web page needs an update, eh?

    Could we see some pictures please?
    I'm imagine like all Corbins it's heavy?
    How's the foot to peg ratio as appose to stock? I'd like more leg room.

    Thanks.

    It is basically a work of art if you ask me. Probably a little heavier than the stock seats. As far as leg room, it is a "Custom" seat. You tell them what you want and they will make it. They are built to order, they don't just pull them off of the shelf and ship them. Sorry, still a little dirty from the last ride.
