Selling the Corbin seat I had on my 2012 R1200R Classic. Should fit all Hex Head generation Rs. I only had it for a year before I traded in for a GS Rallye.
It is a genuine brown bomber leather seat with black grippy vinyl sides and black stitching. I paid over $500 new.

Asking $200 to sell to local PDX rider.

I guess if you don't know where "PDX" is you're not local ;). Looking for a Corbin or something other than the low comfort that I currently have.

Very tempting, and that’s a good price, but the seat looks too low for me (6’6”, 36” inseam).
Yeah not sure sorry. If it helps I am 6'1" with a 32" inseam. I can say on my bike at the stop light I wasn't completely flat footed on both feet.

Lol yup my thoughts :LOL:. So I came from having the low seat also when I bought the bike and tried having it customized by Mr. Ed's Moto in Albany Or. They do a great job but I ended up having them build it wrong for me. I just didn't really know what I was trying to get to I guess. So I went to the Corbin since I figured if it works for the majority it will likely work for me. I got to say it was the perfect fit. It brought me up comfortably while still feeling like I was "in" the bike instead of "on top" of it, plus room to moved back and forth on the seat.

I like the low seat height for the luxury of flat footing at stops but even with only 30" inseam i felt a little cramped. Got the Knight Design lowered pegs to decrease knee bend a bit. Wish the pillion was a little farther back and the step in the seat had a little less foward slope.

Yeah I hear ya. I was really cramped up with the stock low seat. I was briefly considering the lowering pegs as well but was worried about corner clearance. This seat ended up fixing both issues for me without compromising anywhere.

I live in Garden Home, over by Washington Square, and would be very very interested in your seat depending on the height. Do you know what that is? I need something around standard height.

Thanks

I believe the seat is closest to the standard seat. It was in the bike when I bought it. Mine is an ‘08. When you say Washington Square are you talking about San Francisco? I’m in Berkeley.

the ad mentions PDX, which would be Portland, Oregon. Washington Square is a shopping mall and Garden Home is a suburb of Portland near it. thanks for the information on the height, I think I found that somewhere else too. hopefully I will be buying the seat before the weekend and I can ride like the wind. I lived in Berkeley for a while in 1970, great times and hot women.

Great, I just bought a 2008 R1200R with a low seat and I would love to have a taller seat. I’m in St Paul Minnesota. Would you ship it?
