    Leather's a bitch to care for, and doesn't like the rain. But it does breathe better.

    Vinyl is better for an all-season rider or someone who is casual about maintenance.

    I highly recommend not buying a Corbin unless it's custom fit at the factory. I've never heard any complains from someone who gets a custom fit, but there's tons of people out there who don't fit the Corbin ass-profile and are really disappointed with the seats.

    I'm looking at getting a Corbin for my 600rr. Do you guys think it's well worth the price that they charge.

    All depends of the person....I had a Corbin on my previous ride, and got one for my latest....2 thumbs up.

    Another great seat is the Sargent models....again, $$$, but your ass will thank you.

    Both mine were leather, but I store my bike inside, and don't ride in the rain unless I have to. With proper maintenance, both will last years....probably much much longer than the average person owns the bike anyway.
