Default Seat choice

I know there are probably mulitple posts on seat choices but here is another. I am wanting to replace my seat and need help making the choice between the Corbin Hollywood Solo & Pillion for Yamaha Warrior
or the
Mustang) Yamaha Road Star 1999-Up Wide Vintage Two-Piece, No Studs, No Conchos.
The Mustang passenger seat (reason I want to replace) looks more comfortable than the Corbin seat and I was wondering if anyone has experience on these seats. Thanks in advance.
Dale

I think you're going to find both are highly rated for comfort. So in the end you may end up comparing looks and price.

Here's my 2 cents: I have a Corbin Dual Tour, and it's very comfortable. It puts me several inches forward of my PCS seat though -so the riding position is quite different.

However, I think it's very fugly. I think Mustangs are even more fugly. They just remind me of that big fat seat you see on Harleys. I love my PCS seat. Slim, cut low, puts you IN the bike. You can ride it for hours. But my wife hates it (it's a one piece, but they do make the 2 piece) so I had to get a DT for when she rides with me.

Anyway, I don't think you'll regret either seat, it's just a matter of looks and price.

I, like LD, also have a Corbin dual tour that is comfy as he!!, also as LD put it extremely Fugly. However I have never seen a Mustang seat I liked, neither in looks or comfort, wouldn't even consider putting one on. I will be purchasing a PCS chip seat for when it is just me (most of the time) as I have heard great things and love the way they look. So from your choices I would definitely go Corbin Hollywood, they make good stuff. But check out the PCS as I have heard nothing but good and they are very well priced.
