Tomorrow (4/29/13) my dad and I will be leaving for our 3rd of the four corners of the lower 48. Dad will be on his vtx 1800 and I'll be on the nc. Should be a pretty good test of the new Corbin seat. Put some PR3s on for the trip (couldn't wait to get the stock metzlers off). Here is a pic from mapquest of our route. We avoid the interstate like the plague. 2 lane state highways are our preferred roads. I'll post up some pics when I get back

That sounds like a great trip. I can't wait until my son is old enough that he and I can ride together like that.

I took 3 weeks off work. Only hard deadline is I have to be in Glenwood Springs, CO on may 9th. My grandmother lives there and my wife and mom are flying out to spend a long Mother's Day weekend there.

Have fun on your trip that seat and those tires should do you just fine! I had the same combo for my 2300 mile trip. Beware of nails and crazies in the road.

It's too bad you can't dip down just a few miles to actually hit The Four Corners, on your "four corners" trip, lol. That area, and around Moab Utah, were amongst my most favourite places I've ever been. :)

Have fun and be safe!
