Today I got home from my buisness trip and low and behold my Corbin Smuggler arived. Much thanks to Captain Bob for selling me his slightly used smuggler. it has been an exhausting three year search for this highly sought after seat (at least by me). I'm super stoked!!

Tomorrow I have an appointment at Corbin in Hollister to have some fresh apolstery done up.

They should really start making those again. You forget how convenient it is to have a huge easy to access space for storage on the bike. Just got my Tuono back from getting the suspension done and can't cry too hard over my beloved Smuggler. Rides much nicer. The VFR is still the best all around motorcycle even with the stock seat. Going to modify the stock seat cowl to work with the passenger handles so it will look right again. Glad your happy. :tour:

Ok so i showed up first thing 8:00 am at Corbin in Hollister Ca to get my Smuggler reapolsterd. Thanks Corbin they not only reapolstered my seat, re-shaped the foam to fim my ass! But were able to put new seat bumpers for a nice firm fit on the Bike.

Love the idea of that seat. Had an off the shelf Corbin on my zrx that was a little stiff for me but I bet a custom one would be awesome.

Side question. What pipe is that on your bike?
