Airhawk if I'm on it for a long trip. 2hours a time is ok, by then I need coffee, GRiSO needs fuel,

Put the stock seat on the GRiSO for the Grotto run this am. Oiy, what a POS. But then I'm 6' with a 36" inseam and a skinny bum. Seat has the wrong curve and wants to slide me into the tank and I need to push my bum back.

Seats are pretty subjective so consider yourself lucky if your bum is easy to please.

damn rboe. I have a 36" inseam too but I top out at 6'4"

The reviews of the Corbin sound like they are right up my alley. Especially the riding positions. That was very good to know.

Totally subjective topic of course, but I'm perfectly comfortable with the stocker. I keep my passenger pegs down all the time and can hook my heels on them occasionally for a different "sit" and that works great for me. Besides, I have to stop for gas and a piss every couple of hours anyway. Have done many 600+ mile days with the stock seat, rear peg option and regular stops.

DM, a bike accident shortened up my back by two inches so I'm more of a freak of nature than before. Smile

I'm amazed by the number of folks that like the GRiSO seat. Not surprised though. Luckily, there are tons of choices out there for folks not so fortunate and need to tweak seat. Smile

The GRiSO isn't designed for you tall bastards!! Razz Razz Razz Laughing Laughing
It's Italian made remember? Laughing

I guess the perfect rider size would be 5.8/ 5.9"...
My only bitchin' is that a small fuck like myself, isn't flat footed.
It would be nice to be planted down in parking lots etc... can't have it all.

Ha!! I fucking thought so! Very Happy

I got to ride a friend ZX10 a while back and a 675 Daytona at Bike Week...
I couldn't wait to get off those bikes I was so uncomfortable.
The Triumph was a nite mare after 20 minutes, not only with the sore ass but my forearms/triceps weren't happy.
So tall bastards might be well, too tall Very Happy but some bikes just have some messed up ergos no matter what.
Like already mentioned, comfort is rather subjective...

SHORT GUYS RULE!  cheers

Finally, I've been waiting all my life for this. Actually, I've always known it to be true. I have one friend who's a full foot taller than me at 6'-7" and man, does he suffer. Can't find a comfortable car to drive, has to pay extra to upgrade every flight, and generally doesn't fit anywhere. I've always been a shrimp - I think the GRiSO was made just for me!

HI i think, why we are not getting numb bum on the GRiSO is the high foot pegs, they keep the backs of your higher legs of the seat therefore not cutting off circulation.ill be keeping the original seat i love the look and the feel, i can't believe i don't have to do any mods to this bike to be happy just things to personalize it, and that's the part we all love isn't it.

WAKEY.

I'm heading to the US again for a couple of months next year and already have a Corbin and CalSci screen for my Stelvio waiting at Bill's to bring back. I can probably bring back a couple more such items as accompanied baggage cheaper than getting it shipped.

My quote for my items was absurd! $6-700 plus! Even if it took us over our baggage allowance it will be cheaper than shipping for others I'm sure. Obviously early days but if people want to think about it we may be able to help, within reason.....

Stock seat starts out comfy for me then becomes a bit of a pain after 2 hours or so.

I had a Sargeant on the Thunderbird so will probably upgrade or get a gel insert. I do have a bean bag seat for long distances. Not as good as an Airhawk but does help a bit.

No complaints about the stock seat. On longer rides I use Moto-Skiveez underwear, and that helps. Longest day I've had on the GRiSO was 675km through the twisties in the mountains, and I can't complain. The most uncomfortable bike I've ever ridden was a Aprillia RSV4R. My nuts were knumb in 30 min. and I could wait to get back on my GRiSO.

I find the stock seat fine for an hour or so. I use a Corbin and find it far more comfortable for my bony arse. It's dished our more then the stock hump and takes more pressure off my bony bits. For really long rides I use an Airhawk. Only complaint about the Corbin is it's wider with more pronounced edges that some complain about when feet are put down. I don't find it a bother though.

I love my Corbin. I recall on a ride back from some Cabal up North, after about two hours I was following Ralf and Pete and they were both standing on their pegs frequently to give there arses a rest from their stock seats.

I’ve done a few 10 hour rides and it was only the last hour or so that my arse started to ache. The rest of me was aching as well, so I can’t blame the Corbin for that.
