Corbin Dual Tour seat

So I finally bit the bullet and ordered a Corbin Dual Tour seat for my 2010 Thunderbird.
Has anybody already got one and used it for fairly long trips?
She who must be obeyed said the Triumph Long haul passenger seat was very uncomforatble so I am optimistic that the Corbin is going to be better.

Now that you mention it i would like some feed back if any too,iv'e been looking at the dual corbin, cause i mainly ride by myself and i slide off the back of the standard seat without the pillion seat on and my wife and kids all say the pillion is too small when they come for the ride.

Wallace you are the first I've heard mention that, I too slide off the back if I dont' have the pillion seat on. I hate that feeling, but like the look of no rear seat when I'm riding alone - which is all the time. I've debated shaping something to put under the seat in the back to keep it from folding down so easily. If you leave the pillion bracket in place that just pokes you where a man ought not be poked.

I prefer the look with out the pillion too but had to put it back on to take the pressure off my arms and knees from hanging on and felt the difference straight away when I put it back on. I suspect if I had of had the pillion on when I spun out on some loose road surface, I could of possibly controlled it and not dropped the bike because I sort of just slipped off it.

I had a Corbin dual on my Moto Guzzi. It was light years better than the stock, but I still liked using beads or my AirHawk on long trips.
