Thanks, not sure on fender kit. What i really like is bags come off in seconds and they dont have that big bulky frameing behind the bags like i have seen on other adventure bikes

Hi Brian. That seat looks super comfortable. So far for me the stock seat is fine, but then I see seats like yours...... I got some thinking to do :wink2:

Thanks guys this bike came with all that stuff on it and for a 2016 with 4,000 miles i feel i got a great deal at 9,900. It belonged to the parts guy at the dealership and it has been well taken care of. Has eng gaurds and skid plate also

I had a klr before and this rides like a cadillac compared to that

Comfy is good. I still have the oem seat, and after 2 hours on it today I realised that because of the slight downwards angle, and the cold, a certain important part of a mans anatomy can go numb, which is not very comfortable while riding haha. Luckily a bit of standing up is easy with this bike so you can get some feeling again!

When i went to get my plate for the AT at the dealer the other day i asked the parts guy who use to own the bike if he still had the stock seat. He sold it to me for 50bucks, so ill keep the corbin for our camping trips and long road trips with the wife. Bike looks so much better with a stock seat on it instead of the corbin seat, and man is that corbin seat heavy

And im loving it, just need to slow down on the highways
