The 2015 Johnny's
It's time to pre-register for the Bike Show!

The Annual Ride-In Bike Show at Corbin's has been dedicated to our recently departed friend, radio personality Biker Bob Warford. Bob started this bike show for us years ago and to honor his memory we are stepping it up a bit with sactioning by the IMBBA.

For 2015 we have also added cash prizes to go along with the traditional "Johnny" award shown above. This year there are eight classes each with a $450 top prize, three special awards and a $600 Best of Show. Registration is FREE and now open, just click HERE.

The Biker Bob Memorial Bike Show takes place at the Corbin factory during the Hollister Rally on Saturday July 4th. You will find Corbin's rally page and all the details right HERE.

Hope to see you July 4th weekend!





Carducci Dual Sport
A hand built, ground up build that started with a 2003 Harley-Davidson Sportster 883R. While some folks look at this amazing creation and say "Why?", we looked at it and said "Hell Yeah!"

It's a bit beyond the scope of our Daily News to feature a custom bike, but we just had to share a few pics of this one. Although much of this machine is hand built (48% says Jim Carducci), you'll notice use of some of the finest aftermarket components in the MC biz too.

As if having one of the most outrageous Dual Sport machines on the planet wasn't enough, they've also developed a Super Moto based on the HD Sportster platform.

From the custom Corbin seat to the hand formed aluminum fuel tank, the Carducci lineup is something that can be appreciated by all motorcycle enthusiasts. Click on over to CarducciDualSport.com for more info or come out to the Quail Motorcycle Gathering this weekend to see 'em in person!





Hollister Rally 2015
Naturally Corbin has long been a supporter of the Hollister Rally as it's our hometown's signature event. So it should be no surprise that Corbin has stepped up to help sponsor the 2015 rally.

As a part of our support, we will be including a $75 Corbin seat gift card in every Hollister Freedom Rally VIP package... which just happens to have an earlybird price of $75. So if you're planning on getting a new Corbin saddle that weekend you're essentially getting all the other VIP goodies for free! Please note the gift card must be redeemed during the event.

Hollister Freedom Rally VIP package includes: The Guess Who concert ticket, Fabulous Thunderbirds Concert ticket, Exclusive Rally Tee and Pin, downtown lunch coupon, poker walks, kickstand plate, VIP parking, raffle tickets and more. Just click on over to the official rally website HERE for the whole skinny.

Likewise we'll keep our own Hollister Rally webpage updated with the latest news and events. You will find Corbin's rally page HERE.

Hope to see you July 4th weekend!





Sturgis 75th Emblem
By special license Corbin is now happy to offer the Sturgis 75th logo available embroidered on your new Corbin saddle!

This license is for 2015 only so this will be your only oportunity to get this special edition. We considered making these only on seats from the Sturgis event, but we didn't think it'd be fair to those who wished to attend, but circumstances prevented it. So you can get this emblem on all phone / internet orders just for asking!

Two-color Sturgis 75 emblem measures 1 3/4" tall x 2 3/8" wide. Typically it will appear in the side panel of your seat on the side opposite the Corbin logo, but if you have a special place in mind just let us know. Emblem available now!





Polaris Slingshot
Our first models are out for the Slingshot and we've got them in the photo studio now! More pics and complete info is forthcoming, but check out these brief details so you get an idea of what's coming.

Designed like a Racing Bucket but sized appropriately for the Slingshot. Contoured in traditional Corbin fashion for comfort.

Corrected Headrests still offer the needed security and safety, but are built to allow clearance for those who wear a helmet when driving.

Included Sunshade is built of stretchy fabric that easily pulls over the seat to provide some shade. One of the first things we noticed was how hot the seats got when sitting out in the sun... here's the fix!

Naturally we build these with all the qualtity materials that have made Corbin seats famous worldwide. A wide range of color / texture options are available for custom looks and the option of heated seating for cooler climates.

For more details, keep an eye on our New Products section.





Can-Am Spyder F3
We've had a lot of requests for our Fleetliner Saddlebags specifically for the Spyder F3 and we're happy to say they're on the way!

As always we take our design cues from the bike itself so our saddlebags look like an extension of the original bodywork and carry the theme through the rear end.

From the rear you can tell how the Corbin saddlebags hug the profile of the Spyder to maintain and smooth, tight line with impresive capacity. Notice also how the doors are being designed to open up and forward so you never lose contents onto the ground.

Although this is still just in the modeling phase, it is clear Corbin's Fleetliner Saddlebags are going to be the perfect blend of form and function. Watch our New Products page for this release soon!





April 1 News
There's a lot of talk about being Green and using sustainable resources in manufacturing. We have a long history of being tree huggers around here so we've taken the challenge to find renewable sources for our materials.

Case in point, is this brilliant new Sea Monkey Ranch we've established at our factory in Hollister. Although we only acquired the property and brought in our herd a short time ago, we hope that we will be able to test our concept later this year.

Fish? Mammals? Quite frankly we don't know what the heck they are, but we've heard their pelts are cherished in some circles for the unique mauve-ish color and remarkably supple touch. We've made seats with Stingray, Ostrich and Cowhide so we're pretty sure this will work!

Two weeks in and we've had mixed success. Although our herd has dwindled to a single animal (we call him Tim) he has grown quite well and seems to relish frolicing carelessly about his ranch. Unfortunately we think our team has grown too attached and probably won't turn him over.

I told you guys it was a bad idea to give him a name!





2001 is Back!
This Partial Streamliner, dubbed 2001, was built back in the 1990's to run at Bonneville by Carl's Speed Shop with help on the bodywork by the Corbin Wizards.

Back then it was extremely unique and created quite a stir in how the "partial-ness" of the streamlining became nearly complete once the rider filled in the gap. It remained 100% compliant with the SCTA rulebook's definition of a Partial Streamliner though more than a few folks cried foul.

Despite the objections, 2001 passed Tech and went on to set records and grace the pages of quite a few motorcycle magazines too. Years later most partial streamliners have followed suit and the class has never looked the same. History lesson concluded.

After a decade on hiatus, 2001 is being brought back into action with a new powerplant and updated body design. Once it's complete, Carl's son Doug will once again take the helm in search of Land Speed Records. We'll keep you posted!
