Here is my review of the Corbin Smuggler.Had it for about 500 miles so far.First off I added 2 chrome Triumph emblems to it.The emblem is metal and self adhesive.I found it on the Triumph website under the accessories for the Thunderbird.It is a very nice piece.Needed something to break up all the blue on the back of the bike.You can see it in the pictures.
As for the Smuggler.It raises the seat height about 1 inch.The seat is also a little wider than stock,especially the farther you sit back.It is firm but it seems to have softened a bit with use(or my butt has got used to it).The seating surface is leather.You could go crazy with the seating surface color choices they have but I kept it a simple black.The rear cowl portion comes pre painted.The paint match is good.One thing I do not like is the gap between the storage lid and the cowl.It is not uniform.To much gap all around especially on the left side.The locking mechanism is a little stubborn at times.There is very little storage space.Maybe you could fit a small bottled water and a pair of gloves.That's it.But at least it is something.Mounting it to the bike was a little tough.I could not get the bracket on the Smuggler to line up with the bracket on the bike without a little bit of a struggle.Once I did the bolts would only tighten about half way.After a few rides I was able to tighten it all the way.I guess the rubber spacers had to settle in a little bit.
Over all I like the look and the little storage space it has.Goes nice with the fly screen I added.
The price was $763.I would have liked a little more quality in the lid/cowl gap for that price.
You can check out the pictures to see if you like the look
