Biketoberfest 2014
Biketobertest officially kicks off October 16th, but we're already gearing up and ready for riders at our East Coast warehouse and showroom!

You'll find us just 3/4 mile from Rossmeyer's Harley-Davidson on US Highway 1 (Exit 273 of Interstate 95). In fact, if you're heading north on Highway 1 headed for the Harley-Dealer you will cruise right by our new East Coast location.

As always, we're open seven days a week and will be on hand offering free installation so you can ride home in comfort. In support of local riders, we've started our traditional 10% rally discount already so drop by anytime!

For riding directions and more info, just click HERE.





Biker Bob's Cancer Bash
Bob's annual event to raise money for Biker's with Cancer takes place this Saturday at Harley-Davidson San Jose from 11am to 4pm.

There's plenty of good times, comraderie and music featuring Charlie Brechtel, Retro-Rockets and Syndicate of Sound. Then of course the annual raffle with 2014's Grand Prize being a brand new Harley-Davidson motorcycle... and it could be yours for as little as $20!

Biker Bob's Cancer Bash donates all money directly to cancer sufferers in the area so please come out. Bring your bike, bring your friends!
Harley-Davidson San Jose

Triumph Street Triple
We're happy to now offer TWO new saddle models for Triumph's midsize streetfighter!

For those who primarily ride solo, our Gunfighter Saddle gives excellent comfort up front with a fastback tail section that looks cool and supports short range passengers. This model also works with the Triumph seat cowl.

If two-up is your regular game, then our Gunfighter & Lady model is the saddle for you. Two ergonomically sculpted and maximized seating positions and the option of a removable passenger backrest.

Both seat models include genuine leather and a host of color options. Get the full skinny right HERE.





HD Street 750 & 500
Corbin now offers TWO seat models for the Harley-Davidson Street models.

If you haven't seen it yet, we offer a two-up Gunfighter & Lady model saddle that provides excellent rider comfort, clean looks and an optional passenger backrest. You can find complete details right HERE.

If you're looking for something a little sleeker, check out our new Gunfighter saddle model. This one provides the same comfort value up front with a fastback tail section for a clean, solo look. Naturally the tail is padded and upholstered to provide for short trip passengers.

We're finishing up the webpage for this new seat now so look for it in our New Products section soon.





20-Year Honorees
Almost every year there's someone here at Corbin's celebrating their 20th anniversary... This year there were FIVE!

Think about that for a moment. With just this latest addition to the 20-Club that's 100 years of saddle making experience. Our heart felt congratulations to: Jesus, Gerardo, Victoria, Hilda and Francisco!

What's truly staggering is that The Whole Group of folks that have achieved the Gold Watch standard totals 19 people which is nearly a quarter of our staff!

Mike was very happy to honor the most recent 20 Year craftspeople and is proud to still make all of our products in the USA.





2014 Honda Valkyrie
One of the products fresh out of R&D this week is our Touring Saddle for Honda's reintroduction of the inimitable Valkyrie.

As a heavyweight cruiser, we felt it best to give the Valkyrie the full Dual Tour Treatment with a clean saddle that works with the Honda sissybar or a pair of Corbin removable backrests.

As testimony of how aggressively the R&D boyz are going after new bikes, we also have two more brand spankin' new products that aren't online yet: Victory Judge Dual Tour saddle & Ducati Panigale front and rear saddles.

We're working hard to get these online as fast as possible so keep an eye on this page: New Products.





Concours d'Wizards
We're not quite done putting together our followup gallery to last weekend's Concours d'Elegance in Pebble Beach when this collection comes rolling up for lunch.

We recognized a couple of these Classic Beauties and specifically one that belongs to our buddy Rich, but to see such a nice group all together at once was certainly a Kodak moment.

Much like our previous news item, this doesn't have a whole lot to do with motorcycle seats but it's still fun to look at. Likewise it gives us the opportunity to drop a shameless plug for Wizard's Cafe which is open for breakfast and lunch, Wednesday - Saturday here at the Corbin factory.

Stop in for a bite while you're getting a seat made or meet up here with your friends for a cup of Joe followed by a weekend ride down highway 25!





Concours d'Elegance
This elegant event taking place in Pebble Beach this weekend doesn't have a lot to do with seats, but it's so amazing we figured it's worth a mention. Besides, a few years ago they started including motorcycles!

Mike makes the trip to Pebble every year and often he and Rodent bring back a slew of pics to share as evidenced by the gallies you'll find right HERE. This year they are featuring the following marques and special classes: Maserati Centennial, Ruxton, Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa, Eastern European Motorcycles and more.

If you happen to live north of Pebble Beach, you'll likely be heading right past the Corbin factory in Hollister on your way to and from the event. We'll be open all week and on Saturday if you'd like to check out our new showroom, take a look around the factory or have lunch at Wizard's Cafe.

For complete Concours information, go here: Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.





Sturgis Bound
Like moths to a flame, the HD world is focused on the small town of Sturgis, South Dakota this month. Tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of motorcycles are en-route to the Black Hills for the annual event.

Naturally you'll find the Corbin Rig setup in our usual spot on Lazelle street across from J&P Cycles. In fact, if you are already in Sturgis, you'll find the guys on-site right now and ready to show off some fine American crafted motorcycle saddles.

We'll be setup through the entire event and will be offering free installation and our traditional 10% rally discount. Don't have what you're looking for in stock on the truck? No problem, we offer the same discount for special orders too.
