Hello boyz & girlz from sunny California. I'm the new owner of a '97 1500 w/12,500 miles on the odometer. I'm having the same problems as Hanson getting comfortable on the stock brick Honda calls a seat.
Don't know if I'm breaking any rules here, but here goes.
Hanson, do a google for "Getting Comfortable on the 1800". This is on another Goldwing Forum & I found the post very informative.....just my $00.02.....-Rich
My '89 came with a Corbin and I'm enjoying it. My best friend, however (with a '99 wing) says he likes more padding than they offer. It IS large, but it's not soft. In fact, when I get up the nerve to drill 50 pop rivets (I promise) I'm planning on doing some repair on the cover and mebbe adding a bit of padding under it.
But that's a LOT of pop rivets. -s
