Default Ya know....

..when something just hits you.? I was looking over the Vicwrapz pics I took while making the video and out of the blue it hit that my passenger back-rest pad looks odd being plain and flat at the back of the stitched Corbin Dual Tour. I couldn't get it out of my head ....So, this morning after a few calls, I brought the seat and back rest to a local upholsterer for them to match stitch the back rest pad to the seat. It'll be done next week.

This is the pic that got me..


and a naked back rest pic for your viewing pleasure

Default Narrower....maybe

Pain was just thinking looking at the picture. Maybe (if mama doesn't mind) maybe remove one or two inches off each side of that back pad. May make it look a little slicker and blend in with the main seat more. If the passenger did not mind I would remove an inch from the overall height and one to two inches from each side maybe. Just throwing that idea out there. Ought to look much better with the recover!

Mrs. PaiN would totally mind if I trimmed that back-pad. I know back rests are kind of a "F-up" to the lines of most bikes(and I admit I like the XC look much better with the rest and luggage rack off) but its very comfy and secure for my passengers and I need a place for luggage and stuffs.

Amen - you don't mess with Sherry's back comfort. Matching upholstery, on the other hand, will be most welcome I'm sure - that'll pull things together real nice. Great idea.

You lost me I never had the DS seat stitched. I had an upholsterer work on the stock seat's padding before I got the DS but I never had any stitch work done.
The shop I used for the padding is a long distance from me and they take forever to get work done. So I searched around and found a place not far that will have it done in a few days.

When we went on the poker run and stopped at the brewery, Sherry noticed there Corbin. I was hoping you'd remember trying to convince her that it was just a restitched DS done by Dave's Upholstery lol.

Oh shit..! That was funny stuff Yea, that one didn't quite get past her.

Currently I'm trying to work out how to sell her BMW 325ci and replace it with a Vanderhall Venice without her noticing......

Yeah, I was looking at the Vanderhalls at the NYC show two months ago:
