Our new Tour Box (headed for the paint shop now) provides enough room for a full face helmet with room to spare. Designed to emulate the lines of the Chief for a nice integrated look. This baby will be fully lined on the inside and color matched to the factory paint. Naturally a generous passenger backrest pad will be included.
Our new Tour Box will work excellent with the stock seat, Corbin Dual Tour seat or our brand new Classic Solo and Passenger Pillion Pad.
Speaking of our new Classic Solo saddle... Designed as two separate pieces to give you the utmost in versatility. You can easily change from Solo cruiser with just the front seat or set it up for two-up touring with the Full Setup of Solo, Passenger Pillion and rider backrest. Genuine leather with a host of color options for looks from Mild to Wild!
You'll find both of these in our Indian Chapter soon.
As you can see above, we have a new dual saddle with optional heat for the new BMW F800 GS Adventure. This fine saddle is built up with our high density Comfort Cell foam to provide miles of support and includes genuine leather seating and a wide range of options for a custom look.
Also out this week is Corbin's awesome Smuggler Trunk for the BMW K1600 GTL. Combining clean solo looks with convenient locking storage and excellent rider comfort. The Smuggler comes paint matched to your Beemer and ready for immediate installation.
Find both of these items in our New Products section.
Attention 2014 Indian Chief Owners: We are currently in the process of re-engineering our Dual Touring saddle to work with the Indian audio kit.
It has been brought to our attention that our new Dual Touring saddle will not install on the bike because of the under-seat mounted amplifier used by the Indian audio package. In order to expedite the fix, we've ordered the system from our local dealer and will be updating our seat tooling as soon as possible. At this time we are not sure if we will be able to correct our existing tooling or if an entire redesign will be in order.
Unfortunately the Indian accessories were not available when we made our seat tooling... it's the down-side to having such a proactive R&D department. Our sincerest apologies to anyone effected by this incompatibility and please rest assured we will get you all fixed up and back on the road in style.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to call us at 800-538-7035 or write: Corbin01@Corbin.com
Designed specifically for the new Chief models, the Corbin Tour Box gets its styling cues from the OEM tank and bodywork to give uniform, integrated visuals.
Large enough to contain a full face helmet with room to spare for other travel essentials like gloves, keys, cell phones and bottled water. Naturally it will be fully lined and weather stripped to protect your cargo.
Look for this trick new piece online soon in our New Products section.
The only drawback to this little beastie has been the tragically sparce selection of custom parts for it. You know we just had to do something about that and are now happy to release a new CUSTOM SADDLE!
Besides the nice custom looks that can be color coordinated to your bike, we also took the opportunity to reduce the wedgie inducing downward slope of the stock seat. Naturally we build it up with the same Comfort Cell foam we use in our touring seats so you're set to go play all day!
Look for this hot new seat in our New Products section very soon.
The local Boy Scouts in recent years have made it a tradition to place American flags throughout downtown Hollister on patriotic holidays. Naturally, the flags had been used around the city during the summer's July motorcycle rally- the first sanctioned biker rally since 2008- and the scouts kept them out until they went missing. Later that month, four suspects were arrested on charges of theft, but the flags were not recovered.
Since the organization exists on the good will of local families and a myriad of fund raisers, the Scouts were in a pinch. The troop went to the council of Hollister in September to request the city reimburse them for the cost of the flags. Hearing about the plight, Mike Corbin and company stepped in and presented the Boy Scout troops with a check for $1,000 to help replace the stolen flags and assure the patriotic tradition would continue.
During a meeting of the city council on November 18th, the Boy Scouts of troops 777 and 787 presented Mike with a plaque thanking him for his support. Corbin said he was "very proud" to help the Boy Scouts and hoped the money would go directly towards flags and nothing else. To be more precise he told the young men "Don't go spending it on X-Boxes!"
Following the presentation from the Boy Scouts, Hollister Mayor Ignacio Velazquez personally thanked Mike Corbin for his support. He went on to say "You're a very important part of our community" and presented Mike with a certificate of recognition for his support of the community.
It was through the ongoing efforts of local business people like Mike Corbin that made if possible for the return of the Hollister Motorcycle Rally, an event that will a positive impact on Hollister for years to come. It took a lot of dedication with cooperation from local officials, law enforcement and organizers to pull it all together. Recently it all paid off with the city committing to an ongoing event and long term deal with event manager Worldwide Dynamics.
"We're all working together to keep Independence Day alive in Hollister," said Corbin.
We've worked out a range of leather and color options to coordinate the saddle to the new bikes. Even the backrests offer a host of custom options to personalize your new saddle setup specifically to your taste.
While we're waiting for the Indian Accessories to hit so we can assure our components will work flawlessly with their parts, we'll be loaning our Chieftain to our good buddies at Barnett Tool & Engineering so they can work on their accessory line for the Indian models.
As always, keep an eye on our New Products section for the latest products.

After a mid-day feast of Carne Asada, the highly anticipated costume contest was dominated by Shrek and a "lovely" Princess who took first and second place respectively. The third place crown went to a traditional Dia del los Muertos makeup.
Naturally the time-honored butchering of the gourds was also judged with the top three spots (in decending order) going to: Jack Skellington, Cannibal Jack-o-Lantern and Breast Cancer Awareness.
Thanks to Mike & Bev (Corbin) for the party. Hope you all have a great Halloween too.
