Master's Type Touring Saddle for Honda Goldwing GL 1500
Click or Tap to Activate Item
We've taken our popular Master's Type saddle and made it just a tad swoopier for a very clean look. Naturally we've kept the functionality that has made the Corbin saddle one of the most popular accessories ever designed for the Goldwing! Excellent body support and long range comfort for those off to see the world on their 'Wing.
Our Master's Type Touring saddle has been ergonomically designed to increase the area of body contact for better weight distribution. Both you and your passenger will realize the full capability of your touring bike and you'll find yourself covering more miles in a day. This saddle is the culmination of more nearly 40 years of saddle design experience and a lifetime of motorcycle passion. The quality of the design is matched only by the quality of the craftsmanship that goes into each and every Corbin saddle.
A major change to this newer tooling of the GL 1500 saddle is the shape of the nose area. We've sculpted this area lower and narrower than our previous model to allow for easier ground reach. Rider's of shorter stature can take full advantage of this by sliding forward on the saddle at stop signs. While rolling down the highway, just slide back into the generous bucket and enjoy the full body support.
Corbin's GL1500 Saddle System includes "Master's Type" saddle, adjustable rider's backrest and coordinated passenger trunkrest. Designed with flowing lines that integrate well with the shape of the Gold Wing. For the cover we include genuine leather seating for a truly luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather will also break in along with the foam shape to provide a personalized fit to your posture over time. Our elegant stitch pattern provides a custom touch.
Now with the option of electric heat!
If you're like us, you like to get up early and log some miles while the other travelers are still snoozing away in their Winnebagos. Now you can catch those early mornings in comfort and avoid the cold. This seat has two switches built into the side panels, one for you (on the left) and one for your passenger. Just flip the switch to low or high and the seat will warm up and maintain temperature automatically. Installation is simple with included wiring pigtail that easily integrates with your Honda.

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.

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. Supported by internal hardware for a very clean look. Backrests adjust to rider's profile for a tailored fit and install or remove easily as desired. A very popular option!

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.

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.
