Very happy with my Corbin.   I had the hots pots too.   I never ride for more than a few hours without a break and it has always been comfortable.  It's really good out of the box and superb once it breaks in...though this is a subjective opinion.  The standard mold does push the rider back, which was a bonus for me but not for everyone.

Very familiar with Lehigh.   I retired from the Chicago PD then came down here to Florida to do 7 more years with the Sheriff's office.   The East District (Lehigh) was my first assignment. 

I know that Corbin at least used to have a fitting program.  They also have a drive-in fitting program here in Florida if you ever ride down.  Give them a shout.   They were pretty helpful when I called them.

@mzflorida. Where in Florida is the RDL drive-in fitting?

Never mind my question. I reread your post and saw it was referring to Corbin drive-in fitting. Not enough coffee in my system this Sunday morning.

Mine is vinyl and the Sport version of his seat.  The butt wings are slightly smaller and he adjust the seat for more movement.  I't is standard to send in pictures of your seating position and he adjusts things ever so slightly for that.  I have not had any issues so far.  Granted it has not been the year for high mileage.  But literally it is the last thing that bugs me during a ride.
Bikes are like women.  What you want and what you think you want change after the first ride.
