I'm less than an hours drive from Corbin. Apparently they have a restuarant on site and if you drive down they will make the seat while you eat your burrito.

Didn't they tell you how long it was going to take ? They are on time with their guesstimates . I Ordered mine about right before Christmas and it took me about a month to get it . But they told me it would be after the first of the year because of Christmas.

They hand make em' , so it'll take a couple of days/weeks for them to send your email that they have shipped it . It all depends on their work load at the time . For me ordering at the busiest time of year , I thought 1month was more than fair . If you really want to know how long just give em' a call , they are very friendly people . Also , when you get it , you'll have to take the brackets off the bottom of you stock seat . They don't come with you new seat .

How expensive is the corbin seat? Is there an alternative to the "Gunfighter & Lady Saddle" seat, that retails at $299? I could have sworn there was a $140-160 alternative about a year ago....

Btw, good purchase regardless of price and enjoy your seat!

Call the Cali Office , thats where they make em' at .
And the only other seat they make for the EX is the Gunfighter . I'm sure it cost the same tho . Only difference is the rear seat is shaped like a rear cowl (made for 1up).

It seems there was a URL i saw as well that was less than 200 bucks also, but cant find it. I think there was a link to a post about it on the old site. I did see a cheap cover on ebay Item number: 270056609548 that you could leave your stock alone and add some gel or memory foam under it, There is another post about it on here.Custom Seat Creations is the ebay store he has several seat covers to choice from. I know you are looking for another seat but thought i would throw that out there. I HATE my stock seat, kills my skinny a$$ but cant see spending over 300 on a seat, Hollywood on here took his to a local upholstery shop for 100 bucks with memory foam and it looks better imo than the corbins.

Next to gear, I think the seat is the most important mod.. if you're not comfortable on the bike, what's the point? That $300 was the best money I've spent on my bike (followed by a touring screen).
