In this episode I un-box and install my new Corbin seat for my Valkyrie. I ordered the seat on August 20th and received it on October 4th.

The stock Honda seat has got to be one of the most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat on. It's good for short rides, but you will definitely feel it after about 100 miles or so.

It's a quandary why Honda hasn't figured this out yet. Your Wing is really beautiful. Saw a couple around town this summer. Awesome bikes!

I'm hoping to get one more big ride before the season ends to really see how the Corbin is going to work out for me. It's been snowing off and on the last few days.

Thanks man! We love living here. We've been in the mountains for seven years now.

Thanks mate, that was a well put together video. As a bloke from down under it's most interesting to see your home, those around it and the streets you ride. Looks like there'd be some choice roads in the nearby hills too! And I agree with Hot Rod - great looking house.

Love the red stitching and piping on yours, perfect match to your custom paint. I have three seats and have settled on my Corbin. I really like the lower scooped out seating position, sitting down "in" the bike. More comfortable, lower center of gravity adds to better handling. Let us know what you think after logging some miles...shouldn't be hard for you, always riding.

Thanks J.D.!

Yes, there's so many great places to ride around here. Lots of canyons and mountain passes. We've had snow for the last three days and the roads were icy this morning, so the season is coming to a close. Soon, I'll be able to put the skis and snowboard on. The ski mountain opens in another month! 馃槑

Thanks Man!

That was the first thing I noticed about the seat, that it hangs on to my body a little more, especially with the backrest in place. Definitely feels like I have more control. I wasn't sure about the stitching when I ordered it. Seems like a lot of the Corbins on the forum are black on black, but I agree, it goes well with my bike.

And here in Oz it is just starting to warm up at the beginning on a new ride season. One man's ceiling is another man's floor I guess.

What state are you in?

Crested Butte, Colorado (a small ski town 8,700 ft - 2,651 meters alt.) - Rocky Mountain High. We're about 25 miles, as the crow flies from Aspen. About 2,000 miles from the east coast and 900 miles from the west coast.

I'm glad you know the area Rick! My wife and I feel very blessed to be able to live here. Gunnison is a great town.

I had never skied at CB until we moved up here. I had skied in many of the other ski areas in Colorado since high school. I was very pleasantly surprised how great the ski mountain is. The best part is that it's not easily accessible to the Denver population. It's a four hour drive. On some week days, there's so few people, it's pretty much ride and ski all you can in a couple hours. I have never felt the pressure to get on the lift when they open and ski until they close.

I made this video a couple of seasons ago. Makes me really look forward to the coming season.
