    Thanks for the link. Really like Corbin but, do want to be sliding into the XR tank. Not happening with M & comfort OEM seats.

     Think I will wait and let someone else evaluate this product.

     Best,

    Seems like its a little thicker as well.  They actually state that it makes the bike taller, which for some could be a problem.

    The backrest is a nice add on

    I had a Corbin seat for the Gen 1 and could not get on with it.  Hard edges on the seat side prevented hanging off and the seat was very slippery with textile pants which caused me to slide into the tank when braking.  Was taller which resulted in more leg room and comfort.  So great for straight up cruising but not so good for twisty roads ...
