I am also considering one but since they are fairly pricey I hope to be sure when and if I invest in one.
Do you sit basically the same as the stock seat?
I can't give you a good comparison to the stock seat since I took it off after about 2 miles. I can not imagine the stock seat would be any better for me & certainly not for a passenger. I can tell you that the Corbin is great.
I can move back farther & have a mini-backrest since it is pretty deep or I can move up & get a different pressure point on shoulders/hands/back. I have not noticed any sliding around so the seat seems to hold you in place.
The wife loves the seat/backrest & the backrest can be moved forward/back to her likening - it uses a small allen-headed screw so I keep the supplied allen wrench in the saddlebag.
I could order a real backrest for me as well, but I'm not sure how much space it would leave for the passenger. The seat already has the cutout for it so not an issue if I decided to try it.
I got the ostrich stripe & have gotten a few compliments on how good it looks on the bike.
If you have any other questions feel free to ask.
