Thanks. I will post these and other pics of the bike in the gallery section.

 

I'll answer DewMan's post here though, so maybe you can keep it open a little bit longer. 🙂

So how do you like the Corbin Saddle?

I like it. I had a Corbin saddle on a 1988 Honda Hawk GT (NT650), and literally rode many 10-12 hour days with no aches and pains. That was the main reason I trusted Corbin over the several choices available for the FZ-07.

 

With the stock Yamaha seats, I had pain points on my butt after 4-5 hours. With the new Corbin Gunfighter Saddle the soreness doesn't start until after 7-8 hours of riding. I had the Hawk 24-19 years ago, so the difference may be age related. 🙄 The Corbin is wider than the stock seat, so the reach to the ground is effected, but I don't find that material.

 

Quality of the seats are top notch, and while aesthetics are subjective, I think they look great. I bought the seat through BiohazardCycles.com, which saved a lot over buying direct from Corbin.

 

I had a Sargent Seat on my 2004 BMW R1150RT, and I also have Sargent on my current 2014 R1200RT. With both those seats I can still ride all day without butt pain, but on the totally different bikes (BMW Sport Tourer vs Yamaha naked) it may be comparing apples to oranges. I just mention that to complicate the discussion.

 

 As motorcycle seat comfort is so subjective, it may be useful to know that I'm about 5'10" with a 30-31" inseam and weigh about 155lbs.
