Default New seat?

I know this has been beat to death (although not nearly as bad as oil) but I need a new seat. I am 6'3" 250 lbs and my bony backside bottoms out the factory tour seat so much that I cannot ride for more than 45 min before I have a numb sack and a painful backside. I have an Airhawk pad that makes a huge difference but it is just a pain to mess with all the time and since I have the scratch right now I figured I would go forward. I contacted a guy in Florida that makes really nice custom seats but $1G and no warranty concerns me. In any case I have been looking at either the Corbin Dual tour or the Ultimate. I feel the Corbin actually looks better but I am more concerned about comfort. I respect everyone's opinion here so do any of you have any input on either seat/saddle?

I'll add that no matter how comfy a seat may be; the summer heat can make it burn too. I like the beadrider's for that. I put it on during the summer months then take it off the rest of the year unless I'm going on a long or multiple day ride.

Believe me i know about riding in the heat, but most of my longer rides are saved for sub 90 days. We usually do NW, AR in May and The TX Hill country in October for that very reason.

Even get a hold of stroker victory and ask them who makes custom seats for them

Im 6'3, 235, and have used mustang wides on both vics. Can put 500 miles/day in. I have a corbin on the triumph, and put 9300 miles on it in 38 days last year. Both, are good seats.

The Corbin is a "saddle" and very firm(I love mine) the Ultimate is a Cushion and the complete opposite of the Corbin.
They both also have significantly different riding positions and feel.

I also could not be happier with my Corbin Dual Tour. Again, as Mr. PaiN said, it is the complete opposite of the Ultimate. It's more of the type of the seat you want. Some people love the comfy couch Ultimate, some prefer the firmer comfort of the Corbin.
