Seats are interchangable. I'd still grab one for casual riding, and go with the stock for track days, etc.

Hate to do it but I gotta dis-agree w/ Lee on this one.
I have no idea why you would want to hang off your bike on the street unless you were dragging parts or were sliding the rear exiting corners but...
When you hang off a bike going into a corner you want your butt and body as far forward in the seat as possible. Plus you don't want your ass hanging way off the seat anyway...too hard to get back on without pulling with your arms. Look at the Corbin. At the front it is sloped perfectly for this. Depending on your bike when you accelerate out of the corner you want to slide back a bit. Not always...depends on the conditions. Again the Corbin looks great for this.
The Corbin is made with harder foam so it doesn't pack down and give you hot spots. And sculpted a bit to hold you in place while on the gas. Some like it...some don't. But it won't interfere with hanging off the bike.

Ehhhhh! WRONG!

Got to disagree completely on this one. I have a corbin saddle on my '00 R1, check the gallery. I was getting out of the seat and getting knee down all over VIR on it too. In fact I was getting my knee down more on the R1 than the R6 which has the solo racing seat (foam padding) because I was going into corners alot faster. I was also banging my knee down so hard around T1 that I was running wide because it felt like I was crushing my leg with the bike. I asked one of the expert racers and he told me I was probably getting too far off the bike. I'm using a Corbin becasue I got a great deal on it and it offers more grip with the carbon weave that the stock seat.

Basically, your stock seat was designed to let you "slide" off the seat when cornering, while, at the same time, attempting to provide a little cushion. This Corbin on the other hand, with it's gigantic pillow-crater in the middle will not afford you this luxury.
So much for that!


PAY UP LEE!

I've never had a lack of self confidence I wasn't sure I could overcome.

If you want it buy it. Why do you need a Corbin for anyway? What is wrong with the seat you have now? If you do buy a new seat, and don't like it on the track. Can't you always interchange seats? You will have both of them.

Hell they not that much are they? Buy one and try it if you don't like it put it on Ebay and sell it.....just a thought.
