Surement effective and comfortable, but I find this ugly saddle.
The origin goes better with the style of the motorcycle

I agree that it is ugly.

Lucky for me the stock saddle is fine!

These seats look really nice. Some can look bad, or unfinished so I'm impressed. Not the best looking but at least it looks like good quality.

Adding some back rests certainly makes the Valkyrie more comfortable for longer journeys. It's a bit of a necessity if you plan on riding long distances.

I've got the Corbin seat and backrests. We've put about 200 miles on them so far . .. and really like them.

I had to have a post fabricated for the passenger backrest -- allowing about 2" more distance between the backrest posts . . . giving my wife more room (she's not a large woman . . . but the original distance was too short ... about 11.5 inches.

I would recommend this seat/backrest to anyone looking for a more comfortable long-distance ride.

Will the Corbin seat work with the Honda passenger backrest and luggage rack?


Does the Corbin seat move the rider back? If so, how far?


Thanks
Ed

The Corbin does work with the Honda backrest they actually have a pad you can buy to match the seat. From my experience it moves you back just a little simply because of the shape. I've used them on so many bikes I've lost count

My Garage:
2015 Mustang GT - Performance Package
2014 Focus ST - Still Stock
2014 Honda GoldWing - Yup to many mods
2014 Honda Valkyrie - Backrest/Rack/Rivco Cruise Pegs/Throttle Lock/Gustaffsen 21" Windshield
2015 Honda F6B - Kury center console/Stock GL1800 Windshield/Ergo II cruise pegs

Here's the Corbin Gunfighter that I just put on my Black Valkyrie. I wanted a "saddle" appearance. So I ordered the Brown for the seat area and Asphalt Black for the rear section. And I ordered BLACK LETTERING for the word CORBIN. If you look at the photo you will see the letters are WHITE. I sent them an email about it, but what can you do at this point? Ship it back and make them redo it - yeah, I know but what a serious pain in the ass. I guess I like live with it although I believe it would look better with the letters BLACK.
As far as the seat goes - it looks great (to me) and it feels as though it will be much better than stock. Next month I'm taking an 1100 mile round trip to the mountains and back to a rally there I like to go to. That will tell the tail - (pun intended...)
