Corbin saddlebags are designed to compliment the looks of the bike while providing the locking storage you need for traveling. Our sculpted design emulates the Slingshot so well, our local dealer says it looks like their stock models are missing something.
Molded to fit the shape of the Slingshot on the outboard side while the interior wall is designed to maximize capacity and provide over 100 liters of combined storage.
If you're headed for The Black Hills rally, stop by and check them out in person at Corbin's Comfort Corner. Naturally they'll be in our New Products section too in just a few days.
Charlie was a lifelong advocate of renewable energy, electric vehicles and alternatives to fossil-fuel transportation. In 1974 he traded a hot air balloon of his design for one of Corbin's first production electric motorcycles and the two have been friends ever since.
Our thoughts are with his family and many, many friends. Inside EVs has written a nice tribute to Charlie on their blog HERE.
Charlie was an inventor and had an amazingly adventurous spirit... he will be missed. If you are more of the "watching" type, we encourage you to check out this You-Tube series, called Sea to Sea, where Charlie piloted a Reliant Robin cross-country. If you're familiar with the Reliant Robin, you will understand why this was such an amazing undertaking.
Taking place at Corbin's workshop during the annual Hollister Rally, this show has just become the first bike show in California to award IMBBA points. As if to punctuate this exciting change, the points Sam earned with his Best in Show placing has garnered him an invite to the IMBBA World Competition in Dubai UAE.
You can read the release from IMBBA right HERE.

Today (Thursday) is setup day and a few weekend vendors got in bright and early to be ready for the big weekend. Already in place you can see, RKA Accessories, Bull-It Jeans and Custom Chrome anchoring the corner.
There's still a lot more coming on-site and the rally officially kicks off tomorrow for the long holiday weekend. Naturally we'll be hosting our annual open house and offering a 10% rally discount on all Corbin products to boot.
The Corbin factory is located just two miles north of the downtown rally center. Get more rally and lodging info HERE.
When Joe contacted us about his planned motorcycle adventure and the potential for a little Corbin exposure via his show, our first reaction was "Hell no, get out of my office!" But then we realized it was just a severe case of jealousy... plus he wasn't in our office.
Clearer heads prevailed and we sent Joe a New Saddle for the trusty VFR that would be carrying said musician and instrument around the lower 48. After all, how could he be expected to sing for his supper if all he could think about was being saddle sore at the end of the day? Truly we had to do something!
All kidding aside, we're pretty enthusiastic about the concept of his show and wish him all the best for entertaining (and safe) travels. Read more about Popp Over America on his site HERE.
As you can see, the sculpting of the right side bag is coming along nicely. Vince is bringing the design elements of the Slingshot to the rear and creating a very balanced look.
Although there is still a lot of work to be done, you can see how the rear of the machine is going to come to a clean finish. Current plans call for a Corbin rear fender that will join the two bags together for support and provide the finishing touches.
Watch this space for updates as the Slingshot project progresses.
One of these modded bikes is on it's way to start appearing in the TV drama Extant and Lamonster was kind enough to include our seat and saddlebags on the bike. Hint, it's the black one in the middle.
Also along for the ride is what is probably the world's First Customized F3. Because of his connections with BRP, Lamonster had early access to the bike and had this project underway before the rest of us had even seen one. Sporting custom paint and a miriad of wicked goodies, this bike is quite a show. For more info check out their Facebook Page Here.
Complete details on Corbin's Spyder F3 saddlebags can be found right HERE.
We're pulling out all the stops and have the whole team concentrating on this project so we can debut them at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August. The team just finished tearing apart the rear end and designing the bracket setup so they will be a simple bolt-on solution.
With the hard parts underway, Vince and Freddy started mapping out the interior walls and will begin on the design of the saddlebag shape. That's when things start getting really fun! Keep an eye on this spot and we'll post updates along the way.

The Corbin skunkworks team has done a fabulous job of sculpting these bags to look like an integral part of the Can-Am design. Corbin's bags are so perfectly matched visually, the bike looks like it is truly finished.
The tight integration hides generous storage capacity and the doors open up and forward (Lambo style) so contents never spill out accidentally. Two-tone color matched paint, heavy duty weather stripping and fully lined cargo area top off the finest bags available.
We'll be finishing up the details next week, then you'll find complete info on our New Products page.
