Designed specially for Softails with the standard width fender and 150 series tire on the back (specifically the Softail Deluxe and Heritage Classic). Insist on a geniune Corbin saddle to improve the comfort and looks of your new bike. Our Dual Touring saddle is just what you need to maximize the long range capabilities of your Softail with enhanced comfort for two. Our ergonomically shaped seating gives you massive support for the long haul. The only reason you'll find for stopping is the need for fuel.
Designed to work with the H-D Detachable sissy bar in the rear or with the optional Corbin backrest system (V-rail will not work with sissy bar installed. ) Corbin backrests are supported by internal hardware for a very clean look and simple, one-bolt installation. You can order a single backrest and transfer it front to back as needed or get two for full time use. Backrest angle adjusts to provide a personalized fit to rider posture in both positions. In the front position, our special hardware allows positioning of the backrest fore & aft for riders of different stature. This special hardware also features a fold down action to ease mounting the bike. With backrest installed, the rider bucket offers 19 inches of vertical support!
Notice how both seating platforms are sculpted to fit the shape of the human body. This is what we call "ergonomic" design and it is one of the critical features of the Corbin saddle. Wide, dished platforms create more square inches of body contact and longer lasting support without hot spots. Inside, our exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides a firm, resilient ride that lasts. Over time, Comfort Cell will adapt to your body and provide a personalized fit for even greater comfort.
As with most Corbin saddles, this model uses genuine leather seating panels for a ride that breathes with your body. Luxurious and durable, leather will provide comfort for many years and will break in along with the foam shape for a personalized fit to your posture. We recommend our standard natural grain leather with tuck and roll stitching as shown. Optional chrome studs provide a nice nostalgic touch and are included at no charge if desired (please specify). For a little extra add electric heat (see below) or a chrome V-Rail to add to the nostalgic appeal.
For those chilly morning rides we offer an option of heated rider seating. We incorporate a heater unit under the leather seating and a switch on the left side of the saddle (so you can turn it on without removing your hand from the throttle). Just flip the switch to the low or high position and the seat will warm up and maintain temperature automatically through an integrated controller. Corbin's heater comes completely pre installed in the saddle and you need only integrate the included pigtail to your fuse box.
Notice how the saddle is designed to fit perfectly to the tank, chassis and fender... Corbin's Wizards have mastered where the leather meets the metal. This kind of fit is available only in genuine Corbin saddles through our patented Integrated Molding system. This process allows us to engineer extremely tight tolerances and fit complex shapes like the beautiful, flowing HD fender.
Need more options? Our #02-S model backrests have removable finishing plates on the rear available in a range of styles. The standard plate is an ABS leather look, but we can also provide a variety of options, please see individual backrest pages for exact details. You will find Corbin backrest models listed in the Accessories tab.
Installation is simple with a tongue in the front and a single bolt into your fender at the rear. For a very clean installation that requires no tools, we offer a chromed billet thumbscrew (#ACST-20). Just slide the saddle into place nose-first and tie down the rear into the stock location in your fender. Our optional chrome V-Rail bolts up directly to mounts internal to the Corbin saddle for simple installation and a very clean look. If you opt for electric heat, the saddle will include a pigtail wire that integrates directly with your Harley fuse box (complete instructions included).

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.

Click the button for additional info...
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. Simple to install with major components pre-built into the saddle. Just wire in the included pigtail and you're ready to roll. Click the button at left for complete info...
Warning! Heater elements should never be installed in motorcycle seats used by riders that cannot sense heat.
Rider Seating: 14" wide x 16" long Back support w/ backrest: 19" Back support w/o backrest: 8"
Passenger: 12" wide x 12" long Back support w/ backrest: 10"
Fits these Harley-Davidson models: 2008 Softail Deluxe & Heritage Classic
Installation: The Corbin Dual Touring Saddle installs on your bike like stock using a tongue in the front and a single screw into your fender at the rear. Chrome V-Rail bolts directly to the saddle and doesn't require any outside brackets for installation... very clean!
Seat heater assembly comes preinstalled on the saddle and ready to go. We supply the wiring pigtail and adapter to connect the seat directly into your stock Harley fusebox. This is a simple procedure that can be handled by virtually any home mechanic.
If the main fuse is in the way of installing the bracket, shift it over the battery. The basepan will have a small groove allowing space for the fuse. Shown in the image to the right, move the fuse from point "A" to point "B".
The 2011 model comes with a thicker leather tank panel which may cause the front tongue to have difficulty catching the chassis. This is easily fixed by adding a slight downward bend to the seat's front tongue. You can easily do this with an adjustable wrench and a little pressure.
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*

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.

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.
