Corbin seat, pegs lowered, and grip puppies installed

I know you've all seen these before and there are lots of discussions chronicling the Corbin vs other seats and I chose the prior. Yes, it's a stiffer seat that will break in over time, but most important, no more sitting on a seat that leans forward. Also, I and my family will all feel more comfortable riding when I can add a backrest. I plan to go the cheaper route with the backrest since many others make rests that fit the Corbin hardware.

Anyway, it took about two minutes from the package hitting the front door to installed on the bike. No problems with the latch (some other have reported having to add some washers). What a huge difference from the stock seat - at least for me.

I will let this break in a bit and then maybe plan a trip to Corbin in Hollister, where they will reshape it by appointment if I think it needs it.

Also got Speedy's peg lowering kit installed - very nice. It's been said that you wouldn't think 1.5" would make much difference, but it does for me. Had to reposition the shifter, but the break was perfect after lowering just the peg - used to have to reach way down with my foot to engage the break.

Then, just more out of curiosity, I got a pair of Grip Puppies. I think I like, so they will stay for a while. Man, I HAVE to stop spending money for at least a little while now .

Were they hard to install?

I have been using puppies for 10 years, I have them on my 2 bikes and wave runner. Best $10.00 you can spend. Fiset thing I always buy. Bikers are always asking me about them.

Grip Puppies were super easy to install. A little dish soap mixed into a tiny bowl of water, spread with fingers on grip and inside puppy, and on it goes.
