Corbin has released a new Dual Touring Saddle for the Indian Scout. The seat was designed to maximize long-range comfort for two on the Scout.The new Indian Scout Corbin seat is designed to work with a Corbin backrest in the rider and/or passenger seating positions or with the Indian sissy bar. 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. With backrest installed, the rider bucket offers 15 inches of vertical support.Notice how both seating platforms are sculpted to fit the shape of the human body and seat the rider lower into the Indian Scout. This is what Corbin calls “ergonomic” design and it is one of the critical features of the Corbin saddle. Wide, dished platforms create more square inches of body contact and longer lasting support without hot spots. Lower seating position provides good ground reach and makes you feel more integrated with the bike. Inside, Corbin’s exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides a firm, resilient ride that lasts.As with most Corbin saddles, the Indian Scout model uses genuine leather seating panels for a ride that breathes with your body. Luxurious and durable, leather will provide comfort for many years and will break in along with the foam shape for a personalized fit to your posture. Available decorated to your taste with a host of options in materials, colors and textures.For those chilly morning rides Corbin offers an option of heated rider seating. We incorporate a heater unit under the leather seating and a switch on the left side of the saddle (so you can turn it on without removing your hand from the throttle). Just flip the switch and the seats will warm up and maintain temperature automatically. Corbin’s heater comes completely pre-installed in the saddle and you need only integrate the included pigtail to your battery.For those interested in obtaining more information on Corbin, you can reach them at 800-538-7035 or online at www.corbin.com.
Suzuki V-Strom 1050 DE + Scott Casey – Living with PTSD and the Rolling Barrage
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
The new Suzuki V-Strom DE has just been announced, and Avery Innis, Training and Publications Manager from Suzuki Motor USA, is just the expert to explain its nuances to us. The V-Strom has always been a superb, yet inexpensive platform, and the new DE variant gets more serious about ADV riding. I find out from Avery whether the new upgrades are worthwhile; and the place that the new V-Strom has in the current market.
Our second segment covers a subject that’s a little more serious than usual.
Many veterans and first responders suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, aka PTSD.
Scott Casey—himself a sufferer—decided to try and help his fellow vets, and started a cross-Canada charity ride in 2016 called the ‘Rolling Barrage’. It was—and is—incredibly successful.
It’s not just a tremendous ride. The Rolling Barrage is a place for like-minded sufferers and their supporters to ride together. They get some serious “wind therapy” whether it’s on just a stop, or a leg of the ride, one day, a weekend, or even the whole ride. Scott opens up with Associate Editor Teejay Adams about his personal history, and how he came to create such a brilliant and worthy real-world event that truly helps.
The Rolling Barrage is a supportive network of brothers and sisters. To quote Scott Casey: “this is the family you never knew you had”.
It was a Nation exploding into civil war. In 1992, the collapse of the former Yugoslavia triggered an international armed conflict that would last more than 3 years and eventually see nearly 100,000 people killed. Canadians were thrown into what was declared a peacekeeping mission, but it wasn’t. They were going well beyond the rules of engagement that were provided by the UN. Told by Scott Casey, Former Canadian Peacekeeper.
