Our Canyon Dual Sport saddle design for the GS converts your stock bench seat into a very comfortable two-up saddle. Designed to maximize the comfort and usability of your bike while providing a cool look. We've even taken the stock thirty-five inch seat height and reduced it by an inch and a half for better ground reach and more confidence. Mike has been producing quality saddles for America's motorcyclists since 1968 and has been perfecting the art of long distance riding ever since.
This seat provides platforms that offer an increased area of body contact to give excellent weight dispersion and eliminate hot spots. Neutralized to curb the tendency to slide in the saddle which will greatly reduce fatigue. The shaping of the Corbin saddle relieves centralized pressure and supports from the sides. We build the saddle up with high-density Comfort Cell foam for a firm, supportive ride that lasts. Comfort Cell will support you for years and will provide a personalized fit after break in.
Accepts a removable backrest in either the rider's position or for your passenger. We've designed this model with added length in the rider area to allow plenty of movement front to back. Due to this, our backrest doesn't work in the front position while carrying a passenger. Instead, order a single backrest and transfer it to the rear when you have a copilot for more vertical support and security. Installs with a single screw and adjusts easily. Our new Ovalbac model #02-S (shown) has backing plate options for a custom look and makes a great handhold for your copilot.
Covered using genuine leather for a perch that breathes with your body. Our quality leather will break in along with your foam for a luxurious ride. Just make sure you care for your saddle with a quality conditioner like Corbin's Saddle Cream. On this model we've used Classic leather in the seating with Carbon-Fiber embossed vinyl sides that complete the look and support the foam shape. VInyl sides will keep your saddle nice and tight and looking new longer. A coordinating colored welt and our tasteful stitch pattern add a nice finishing touch.
For the ultimately luxurious ride we include seat heaters in both the rider and passenger seating areas. They wire simply into your existing wiring harness and feature a single control for the front and rear heaters with two heat settings. Switch is located on the left side panel (so you can keep your hand on the throttle) and is illuminated to indicate setting. Corbin's tasteful tuck & roll stitch pattern adds a nice touch of class and is required to provide for the seat heater elements.
As an extra added value, Corbin's Ovalbac backrest models have a custom finishing plate option included at no extra charge. We have a standard leather-look plate, a Carbon-Fiber look (shown) or primer if you'd like to have it custom painted. If you really want a custom look, you can get a finishing plate in chromed steel or pre-painted gloss black for just a little extra. Please be sure to choose your finishing plate option when ordering.

FIBERTECH™ BASEPAN: A purpose built, hybrid material that provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the Corbin saddle. Provides a precision fit to every arc and contour of the machine and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint. We always design our basepans as flat as possible so bumps or odd shapes don't telegraph through the foam to your body. Click on the button at left to learn more...
COMFORT CELL® FOAM: The heart of the Corbin saddle! Our exclusive, purpose built foam material, called Comfort Cell, was created to provide a firm, resilient ride that doesn't break down. This means it will support you for long days on the road. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in to provide a personalized fit to your posture and even greater comfort! For the complete story just click the button.
ERGONOMIC SHAPING: A major part of the design criteria of the Corbin saddle is the Ergonomic shape. This means the saddle's foam shape is designed to emulate the curves of the human body. This provides more square inches of body contact and helps to eliminate hot spots. This shaping also neutralizes the seating platform to help curb sliding in the saddle which reduces fatigue. In a nutshell... more comfort for a longer ride! Just click the button at left for an animation that shows how it works.
PATENTED MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY: Always an innovator, Mike Corbin invented Integrated Molding technology which is now the process by which all Corbin saddles are made. This process allows extremely tight tolerances and creates a chemical bond between the foam and base material. To see what this is all about, just click the button for More Info
GENUINE LEATHER: We use leather in all panels of the seat that contact your body. This provides a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather will also break in along with the foam shape to support the personalized fit. Available in a wide range of textures and styles to suit your taste. For more information about leather seating just click away.
CORBIN BACKREST SYSTEM: The first and most versatile removable backrest system available for motorcycles! Corbin's backrests provide added vertical back support and long range comfort.

ELECTRIC HEAT: As an option we can include electric heat in this saddle! This option provides a true bit of luxury for when the temperature starts to drop.

Warning! Heater elements should never be installed in motorcycle seats used by riders that cannot sense heat.
Rider Seating: Approx. 13.5" wide x 18.5" long Passenger: Approx. 11.5" wide x 9" long Seat Height: 33.5"
For a better seating platform in the rider's area we've eliminated the tool storage built into the saddle. Instead, we've designed the seatpan to hold the toolbag in place behind the latch as shown at right.
This seat is designed with extra length in the rider seating area to allow plenty of movement fore and aft. Due to this, the backrest does not work well in the front position when carrying a passenger.
Corbin's Canyon Dual Sport saddle is designed to work with your stock BMW seat latching bracket, so remember to transfer it from your stock seat when making the change.
Take good care of your new seat and the seat will take good care of you. Designed to help your leather saddle remain weather resistant and keeps the hide supple. This will allow the leather to break in and age gracefully. Great for boots, gloves & jackets too. Simple rub-in, buff out application. *More Info*
Our most popular backrest model is the perfect blend of form and function. The size looks visually appropriate on most every seat yet is large enough to provide good, sculpted support. Works well in either the rider's or passenger's position. The standard Ovalbac is available with a range of finishing plate options to dress up the rear including chrome! *More Info*
The standard Corbin backrest for years! This model is the same size and shape as the Standard Ovalbac above, but without the hole in the middle. Provides plenty of sculpted back support without looking too big on the bike. Works in both the rider or passenger seating area on virtually all Corbin saddle models. This model also has the option of chrome studs if desired. *More Info*
Like the Standard Ovalbac show above, but with a larger contact area for added support. Works great as a passenger backrest in Dual Touring models. Because of the added width, we do not recommend this model in the front position while carrying a passenger... it may interfere with their legs. Sculpted to provide wide ergonomic support. Offers a variety of finishing plate options to customize the rear (sorry, no chrome). *More Info*
This model is specially designed to be used in the large Dual Touring seats (like HD Baggers) or in Master's Type saddles as found on the Goldwings. Sculpted for extended support both vertically and horizontally, but cut away at the bottom to provide clearance for passenger's legs. A variety of finishing plate options are available to customize the rear. *More Info*
If you want the functionality of a backrest, but also want the smallest appearance possible, this is the backrest model for you. This one is most often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models (thus the name). Includes a variety of finishing plate options for the rear. *More Info*
All the functionality of an adjustable backrest, combined with the smallest profile possible. This model is often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models just like the #02-G shown above. Includes genuine leather seating and color coordinating options just like our saddles *More Info*
A convenient storage solution that looks great too. Corbin's Glove Box bolts up easily to your #02-S(B) model backrest in place of the rear finishing plate to provide four liters of locking storage. Available in primer or pre-painted. Some color matches are available depending on bike make and model. Comes fully lined too! *More Info*
