    Corbins are indeed firm ...

    ... but once you understand this, they are great. After a few hundred miles you feel just as good as when you got on ! And I personally like the Corbin 'bucket' design ... it fits me.

    Corbin vs. Sargent, etc ...

    The short answer is, you have to do your homework. Just like Shoei vs. Arai, some guys have a Corbin butt and some don't, others favour Rick, etc, etc ... you have to attend a m/c show and try them...

    Considering all oilheads are pretty similar, one manual could cover them all ... as for a Roadster specific one, good luck !
