Anyone know of a seat with basically the same shape (meant for a passenger) , comfortable for long rides, but doesn't look so... you know... something that looks a little cooler and fits the retro style of the bike?

That Corbin Gunfighter and lady looks like what I'm looking for. It seems to look a little more in line with the Triumph, I feel like the K&Q is a bit too... Harley-ish or something.

Anyone have one of these and can attest to the comfort?

billybob,

I don't have one (yet) but I've been thinking about getting one myself. It seems like the Corbin seats have mixed reviews however. From all I've read... they make a really nice seat, but the fit leaves a lot to the imagination and their customer service is just plain ol' non-existent.

I haven't made the plunge due to the fact everyone that has to had contact their factory complains they are only sales oriented. Just not the kinda of place I want to trust 3 bills with, if you know what I mean. I've been looking for a used one in a good match, but had no success so far.

I personally can't stand the Triumph King & Queen seat either. I don't know what bike they actually designed that seat for. I hope it wasn't really the Bonnie 'cause it ain't workin' IMO. Looks like a big black leather sofa on top of the bike to me.

I just ordered an enclosed gel pad for $110 from harpermotoguzzi as I didn't want to have my seat chopped up for gel insertion, and like the OEM looks. THis gel pad has a non slip surface on the bottom, and you can just lift it off when you need to. I think I will use a couple of nylon ties on it though to stop it getting stolen too easily.

I can't find anything on that site. Just the gel inserts.

I have a Corbin Gunfighter and Lady on my scrambler. It didn't mess up the scrambler look and is much more comfortable for the two up ride. The removeable backrest is nice because it comes off easily when I am riding solo.

The Corbin seat fit perfectly and is quite comfortable, although a little firmer than most.

I have a Corbin Gunfighter on my 06 Black Bonneville and I love it. Got my short legs closer to the ground :razz:
