Got Comfort? You will with his saddle! Corbin’s Dual Tour not only provides you and a passenger with touring quality comfort, but also adds to the custom look of your Royal Star. For versatility and total luxury, this model works with the Yamaha sissy bar or with two Corbin backrests and the option of heated seating & a chrome V-rail. Our sculpted seating positions give proper weight distribution and allow long range capability. Generously contoured platforms eliminate hot sport and centralized pressure that causes discomfort. On the inside, our exclusive Comfort Cell foam material gives firm support that conforms to your body over time for a personalized fit. Naturally, Corbin’s design team kept a nice flowing line that integrates with the bike’s look.
Dual Touring Saddle accepts two removable rider’s backrests or works with the factory Sissy Bar. Naturally, we offer a touring style sissy bar pad to keep your copilot happy and complete the custom look. Otherwise you can use a single Corbin backrest that transfers front to back as needed or get two backrests for full time use. Installation of the Corbin backrest is easy enough to make this possible at a moments notice. Simply slide the backrest shaft into the built in hardware and secure it in place with the provided setscrew. There is no need to remove the saddle from the bike for this procedure.
Both Corbin backrests are fully adjustable for a tailored fit to your posture and stature. In the front we have also engineered the backrest to fold down to make it easier to mount your bike. This special hardware (built into the saddle) also allows the backrest position fore and aft to be adjusted to your stature. Once the backrest is installed, both of these adjustments can be performed without removing the saddle. Angle adjustment is built into the backrest to tailor it’s position to your body. Like the saddle itself, Corbin backrests and sissy bar pads are shaped to fit the curve of your body for better fit and greater comfort.
As you can see in this image, the ergonomic design of the Dual Touring saddle also gives a nice flowing shape on the bike for a clean look. Inside the saddle, Corbin’s Comfort Cell® foam provides a nice firm perch that supports your body indefinitely and doesn’t cave in like softer materials. Comfort Cell feels firm when you first ride on it, but it is this support that gives you day long comfort. That’s why we always say “Firm is a good thing”. Notice also, the amount of vertical support offered by the bucket design of the Corbin saddle and integration of backrest… over 15 inches!
To add to the vintage appeal of the Dual Tour, we’ve integrated hardware for our Chrome V-Rail. With just four bolts (included), our show quality chrome rail bolts directly up to the saddle with no additional hardware. This provides an added bit of flair and really compliments the nostalgic look of the Royal Star (Note: V-rail will not install along with the Yamaha sissy bar.) For a very clean installation, you can also replace your stock seat tab screw with one of our Chromed Billet thumbscrews as shown (#ACST-8m). A very nice look and tool free installation!
We use genuine leather seating panels for a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather is extremely durable and will break in along with the foam shape to conform to your body. Our standard Dual Tour comes in plain black for a very subdued look. If you prefer something with a bit more flair, we can add our custom stitch pattern (Sharp Deco shown) and chrome studs… or to play up the custom aspects of your bike, add a colored welt of your choice. All these options are available at no additional charge! Please note, heated seat models require the stitch pattern.
Speaking of heated seats… The ultimate luxury for those early morning rides. A single switch controls the heat for both the rider and passenger positions. The switch is conveniently located along the left side of the saddle so you can reach it without taking your hand off the throttle. The two position switch allows you to select a heat level depending on conditions. Once on, the level of heat is controlled automatically by a thermostat built into the control unit under the saddle. Of course, it is very simple to install into your stock wiring.
As a final bit of customization, Corbin’s Ovalbac model backrests have interchangeable finishing plates on the rear. Choose from Leather look, Carbon-Fiber look, Aluminum look or primer if you’d like to have them painted. For a little extra we can provide on prepainted gloss black or a chromed steel model like the ones shown here. These integrate very nicely with the other chrome bits on your bike. The chrome backs blend in so nicely with the design that it’s almost like camouflage!
Be sure to care for your leather saddle properly with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. This will help the hyde to resist the elements and remain supple. The leather seating will conform along with the foam shape and provide a personalized fit to your posterior. Over time, your leather saddle will develop its own unique character just like your leather jacket does. Never use cleaners or conditioners that have a petroleum or kerosene base (as many commercial products do) as they will damage the hied and shorten its lifespan. With good care, your leather saddle will serve you well for many years to come.
