KLR650 Corbin Seat, anyone have any experience with them?

I'm looking at buying a Corbin for my 2002 KLR650 and need a little help deciding weather to go with the The Dual Dished or Dual Platform. I have a 30-1/2" Inseam and can't see any problem with the Dual Dished except thinking the Dual Platform may be more comfortable. I'm chosing the Corbin over Russell for the simple fact that I don't have to find another seatpan to send in.

I've had the dished Corbin and so has my son, neither of us liked it due to being "locked" in one position. It definately sit's you lower.

You can find used ones on the KLR forums almost all the time.

I chose the dished for my 2009 KLR because I had a Sargent flat and wanted to feel more in-place when riding off-highway. I agree with the poster that wrote about being committed to one riding position but once I got my seat nice and broken in I love it.

I have a Corbin for my 2009 Versys too and can ride for 16 hours without the fatigue I used to get with my stock (even with the Spencer modification) seat after several hours. I have to say that the Spencer Mod was a million times better than straight up stock setup.
