I'm 6'-0" with a 33" inseam and would like to know if anyone here can provide any feedback on the merits of the Corbin Canyon standard seat versus the Canyon close model.
I hear you on the cost to ship things these days. It's practically taken away the cost savings one used to enjoy when buying used stuff. As for the newer K bikes all I can say is holy $hit! The weather yesterday was good enough for me to take out the Duc first then the K12. I love the Duc but after riding it then hopping on the K it's amazing how much more brute power it has. I tell people that under full acceleration I feel like I'm just hanging on rather than riding the bike. It's a violent experience (that I happen to like )!I couldn't justify the expense of a new Smuggler, either, but a used one showed up on EBay. Keep an eye out, they appear from time to time. Unfortunately, mine was yellow, but it cost $165.00 to correct that. It still has the yellow welt, but at least it's not on a red bike. :grin2:
Total cost of the seat and paint job was under $500.00. Just be aware that personally shipping any Corbin is expensive due to size and weight.
Those newer K bikes are unreal, aren't they! :laughj
Mike. Next time you're in the area, you're welcome to try my Sargent.The only complaint that I have is that the Corbin is a bit on the stiff side. I still prefer it over the stock saddle. But I'd would like to try a Sargent just as a comparison.
Personal preference, no correct answer. I'm 5'8" with a bit over 30" on the in seam. Rear ride height is adjusted to the high side. I can touch the ground with the balls of me feet. I'm good with that. I've never felt the need to flat foot a motorcycle, growing up on dirt bikes maybe had something to do with it. I'd rather have the leg room on the ST. For the 916, I expect my knees to touch my elbows!This is a big reason why I opted for the Corbin.
