Thanks, I'm leaving my options open.
The issue I have is the price for a Corbin driver seat with back rest and passenger pad, what am I looking at $1,200? The other thing is I read Corbin being notorious for a very firm seat, I might or might not like that, no way to check one out.

This. These things are made for one purpose- long distance comfort; Iíve done numerous 1,500 mile days on mine. Every bike I have from here on out will have a RDL on it.

Before I spent the money for RDL, I tried Corbin. It sucked a fat one.

I traded my touring bike for a hot rod, I want a comfy solo saddle that doesn't look like it belongs on an old man's bike, even though I'm an old man. I'm looking at Saddleman for just a seat and Mustang for seat with backrest and passenger option. Too bad the Mustang is only a plain looking seat. Wide Tripper Solo

Then itís probably not worth it to you to spend the money on an RDL. Iíve heard good things about the Mustang.

Ya, I never owned one but is gives me the option for a back rest and passenger seating. Maybe some new seats will show up soon.

I like the look of of the Mustang, but I like the plain look on everything from motorcycle seats to females.

Yes, and with the Mustang I can just buy the seat to make sure I like it. I don't know if that correlates to females.

I have a heated Corbin in my garage that I bought for my current bike from another member on here. The seat is like new and in perfect condition.

I hated it. Too narrow and too firm. But it worked while I had my stock seat rebuilt for me. I probably used it for 1,000 miles or so. I will probably sell it at some point. Or keep it to go with the bike, whenever I sell it. But my RDL is the most comfy seat I have ever had.

And I had a Mustang seat on my old bike for a while. I thought it was more uncomfortable than the stock one.
