Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout SeatCorbin has designed a new seat specifically for the 2013 Harley-Davidson Softail Breakout FXSB. This new Dual Tour Saddle will improve the comfort, feel and looks of your new Harley.
The seat will also greatly increase your long distance range capabilities due to the incredible comfort…both for rider and passenger. The only reason you’ll find for stopping is the need for fuel.Corbin has a long history of designing saddles that look as good as they perform and this Dual Tour is no exception. Designed to give riders the next level of comfort, this saddle features genuine leather, a new seat cover design and ergonomically designed seating for maximum weight dispersion.Each seating area is sculpted for proper weight distribution which allows long range capability. Generously contoured platforms eliminate hot spots and centralized pressure that causes discomfort.Specially designed to fit perfect on the Softail Breakout model, notice how closely the Dual Touring saddle matches up to the Harley tank. Corbin sculpted the nose of the saddle to make it narrower and allow an easier reach to the ground.Smaller riders merely slide forward and out of the bucket slightly to have better ground reach at stop signs and in parking lots. Yet long range riding comfort is maintained with a wide, generous bucket to support your posterior.Designed to work with a Corbin backrest in the rider and/or passenger seating positions, Corbin backrests are supported by internal hardware for a very clean look and simple, one-bolt installation. You can order a single backrest and transfer it front to back as needed or get two for full time use.Backrest angle adjusts to provide a personalized fit to rider posture in both positions. In the front position, Corbin’s special hardware allows positioning of the backrest fore & aft for riders of different stature. This special hardware also features a fold down action to ease mounting the bike. With backrest installed, the rider bucket offers 17 inches of vertical support.On the inside, Corbin’s exclusive Comfort Cell foam material gives firm support that conforms to your body. Corbin offer two different stitch patterns on this model as well as the option of chrome studs all at no extra charge.And as an added bit of luxury, the Dual Tour offers the option of electric seat heaters for those chilly morning rides. Corbin’s heater comes completely pre installed in the saddle and you need only integrate the included pigtail to your battery. Separate controls for rider and passenger provide for independent operation.If you’re looking to add a bit of convenient storage, the rear finishing plate can be replaced with the Corbin exclusive Glovebox. This adds four liters of locking storage that is perfect for maps, cell phones, bottled water and other small travel essentials.Comes fully lined and weather stripped to protect cargo. Available in plain black ABS or pre-painted gloss black for a little extra. (MSRP: Dual Tour with Heater-$743.00, Dual Tour w/o Heater-$593, Backrest with Glovebox-$578.00 and Ovalbac Leather Backrest-$229).For those interested in obtaining more information on Corbin, you can reach them at 800-538-7035 or online at corbin.com.Visit Corbin Headquarters at 2360 Technology Parkway, Hollister, Calif., 95023 or Corbin Florida at 1433 US Highway 1, Ormond Beach, Fla. 32174.

This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at email@example.com and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
