Saddles

What saddles are out there? I know Corbin and have had several over the years on different bikes. Which one do you think is best and why?

Ive had Corbin; hated it. Expensive, hard as a brick.

Ive had Sargent on three different bikes; liked all of them. Comfortable, reasonable cost. YMMV

Greetings and welcome to the forum. You should take a look at the seats offered at Seat Concepts. They offer complete seats as well as kits the owner can use to recover their old seat pan. Personally I use the “Commuter “ seat and it’s night and day different.

I've had Corbins on a couple of bikes, to include a VStrom DL1000, Mustangs and a Rick Mayer on my current 650 VStrom and like it the best. This one came as a spare with the 08 I just purchased and it is extremely comfortable with a leather top. It has no markings but I'm thinking it is a Sargent.

And BTW Maverick, that is one good looking KLR you have there. I'm going to PM you about your tank.

Cool headlight/auxiliary light setup too. And I'm pretty sure that's the tank I have. The guy I bought it from said it was a 7.1 gal in his Craigslist ad because the original owner told him it was. I guess that was not correct though but it sure looks like it would be more than that.

Corbin

I have a Corbin, bought off CL used for $200. Yeah it's hard but I gotta say, your butt gets used to them and your continuous ride without the PIA will increase. It did for me. Plus they are a bit lower. Now I flat foot it a stop lights and even bend my knees a little.
