Corbin...

Okay, w/o a doubt one of the most comfortable seats I've had the pleasure of riding (albeit a short amount of time I was on it) on was a Corbin seat.

Any of y'all have any comments about the other features they offer??? ( ie - their smuggler bags or beetle bags, etc).

I love mine. I've done 11-12 hour rides with no problem at all. I wouldn't go back to stock. Don't know about their other stuff though. Also, I got mine for $130 slightly used. I think they're like over $300 brand new.

really? though it's a subtle change I like the new busa 1000X better than the old

besides... you can take a couple months to get used to the bikes power after moving up from the Tuna... by then there'll be a lot of after market available.

Buddy of mine has a 14 with all the Corbin stuff...seat, hardbags, passenger backrest. It is quite a setup. Fit and finish is excellent. I'm sure the busa stuff is just as good.

Haven't seen him in a while. Last time out he had the bags off. I'll see what I can do. FYI...it looks just like the one on the Corbin site. The blue 14
