Take a look at the stock seat and it becomes pretty clear what all the noise is about. This thing is stunning... Look at these creative shapes and cool angles! I wouldn't want to actually have to SIT on it, but it's really kind of neat to look at.
With that snarky bit of editorializing behind us, we'll be getting to work on a more traditional rider-centric tush cushion and will post the results here in just a couple weeks. Sooner if we can squeeze in a little update here or there!
Naturally, you can always check our New Products page as it will land there as soon as it's available.
Corbin's location in Hollister makes a good place to meet up as there are good roads in every direction and Hollister is easy to get to from just about anywhere... not to mention Wizard's Cafe where you can relax and have a bite before or after your ride ;o) .
Naturally we were proud to have the opportunity to show off our own Slingshot featuring Corbin's Sport Bucket Seats and newly released Fleetliner Saddlebags which have already proven extremely popular.
Getting together with your buddies for a ride this weekend? Keep us in mind, both the Wizard's Cafe and the Corbin's Workshop are open Saturdays.
Complete information on our Slingshot Accessories can be found right HERE.
Saturday, July 4, 2015, 10 AM: Twenty two motorcyclists saddled up at the Corbin factory and rode forty miles to Santa Nella and back thru the beautiful California countryside and over Pacheco Pass.
The Challenge is open to all entries including streamliners, electrics and diesel machines with the bike that consumes the least amount of energy (measured in dollars and cents) declared the winner. The winner of this leg of The Challenge achieved 177 mpg!

If you like Jesse's custom bikes, impressive metal fabrications or just want to check out his new line of firearms, then Sturgis is the place to be this week.
If you're itching to meet him, Jesse says he'll be on location this week Monday - Thursday (August 3-6, 2015) from 2pm until .... well, until "sometime". That's about as specific as we can expect someone to be at the Sturgis rally.
Also located at Corbin's Corner you'll find Heli-Bars, Wizard's Products, Innovative Storage Solutions, Vantage Vision and, of course, the World Famous Corbin Saddles.
The Place: 1601 Lazelle Street, Sturgis, SD. Across from J&P and just a block down the road from Harley-Davidson at the Civic Center.
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.
