I had a Corbin Gunfighter & Lady on another cycle and felt the same way, after several thousand miles it was still like sitting on a brick. So I took it to Corbin in Daytona Beach, they examined it and said "that's how it is supposed to be" but if I insisted I could send it to their west coast shop to be modified for $200 to $300. I ended-up taking it to Butt Buffer (gel pads) in PA. He re-shaped it and put in my Butt Buffer gel pad for less than $100. It is still not a good seat, but with a sheepskin it is rideable. A lot of riders I've talked to who have owned a Corbin swear they will never buy another.
