This seat is for the 1st gen DL650, which I think you have.Haven't been able to snag a used Corbin. They go really fast for my bike, and I've narrowly missed two of them.
I use an air hawk. I have it set so that some of my centre weight is still on the seat, and it fills in the side spaces with air cushioning.
Straps are set really loose, so that the hawk moves around with me rather than the bike.
It was used to ride down to Alabama a couple of years ago.

I tried the smaller air hawk, which I think was the recommendation for my bike, but it didn't cover enough area and squirted forward and back as well as moving side to side. It's still kicking around somewhere.
This one's the smaller one, that I don't use:
Sorry, sold.This seat is for the 1st gen DL650, which I think you have.
$250 is a good price for it and you can go lower if it's o.b.o and still for sale. Just around the corrner from my house, so if you wanted it I could possibly pick it up and bring it over to your area when I get out for a little ride this weekend.

I rode with that same version of the Corbin and liked it very much. Sliding around the seat was pretty easy on
A good custom seat can be a DIY project. ................. I just built up 'wings' inspired by the Russell Day Long to support my thighs.
Absolutely. I went a bit overboard with the build-up under my thighs, to the point where I can dangle my legs off the pegs while riding and my feet don't drag on the ground. Makes it much harder to get a foot down if you go to that extreme.Motorcycle seats are made to sell motorcycles. You don't sit on them for long in the showroom, but you do try to flatfoot the bike. Therefore, having a narrow seat that allows you to more easily flatfoot the bike, is more important than wide-butt comfort after sitting on it for an hour.
Tried the padded shorts, the gel pads in those, actually add to the discomfort.What about the legendary padded bicycle shorts? Do those add any comfort?
My secret for long rides is Gold Bond powder.
