Corbin Tall/Long Owners - Help
First off, let me say that I am quite comfortable on my stock seat. The longest day I've done so far is only 540 miles, but I have found I am easily good for one full tank (around 175 miles) between breaks. I use a sheepskin pad to keep perspiration down.
So, I didn't consider a replacement seat- until I caught wind of the Corbin Tall. I'm 6'4", but it's a lot of leg (36" inseam). That's one of the things that put me on a Burgman 650 over the other competitors (Silverwing, AN400, T-Max). My knees hit the dash.
Still, with the backrest removed, I find I am still a bit cramped (legs only). Also, my knees are higher than my hips when I'm seated, which is bad for low back.
For those around my height, I'd like to know how the tall changes seating position. If I buy the tall, is there a good chance my legs will benefit from the 3 inches gained? Specifically, do you think I can get my knees lower than my hips? Is seat height higher or lower than stock seat? If I sit farther back, but lower, my knees could still be higher than my hips... I'd like to sit a bit higher, too if I can.
It's a big outlay of cash for a farkle I don't need (buttocks-wise, at least). I want to be sure it will fix my leg problem.
