Saddleman or Corbin?

Are any of you guys using these seats on ur 15-16 r1 ? I was thinking of the saddleman but then went on Corbin website and u can build ur own with colors n different leather designs etc. I was able to accent one with yellow trim which would look great on my 60 th.

I have the saddleman. Once that vgel stuff softens up a tad.... Amazing comfort.
It does make you sit taller on the bike compared to stock.
I commute so it was a win for me.

I had a Saddleman before on my Daytona 675R. Loved it.

I bought a Corbin directly from them for my 2010 R1. I had to modify it to fit and it was hard as a rock, stuck with it hoping it would "break in". Sold it 3 months later. I don't recommend them.

I hated my Corbin on my RC51 and hated my Sergeant on my Mille-R. both had a very conformed "Pocket" to sit in and spirited riding hurt from the way the lip of the pocket rubbed.

I got a saddleman also, My ass doesn't hurt after riding for 7 hours. It doesn't let you slide around to much in jeans. The day I installed it I was not able to get both holes to line up. So I left one in and did a short ride and let sit for a day the next day I was able to get it lined up.

I love the look of my saddleman, fits perfectly with the bike. Plus it comes with the matching cover for the rear seat. I'm actually a little disappointed that it isn't softer. I have a sensitive taintal region

Did you have to "break in" the Saddleman or was it good to go from the start?
My last Corbin never really broke in, it was always rock hard.
Also any height issues reaching the floor since it sits higher?

I've heard that about the Corbin. 1,000 miles of pain until it finally broke in.

The Saddleman I had was perfect from day 1.
