Not sure why the picture is sideways but that is the best one I can find. I have about 25k miles on it and am totally in love with it.

I have one in Tan on a red bike, I bought the "close" version with no heat..I'm in Texas so heating a seat is redundant, with the close option there is no room to shuffle yer arse around, I got it so 'er indoors has more room for her bum. its also wider at the back which helps with passenger comfort. ahem...
so far its been comfortable enough for my boney rear, but as its cooler weather finally here in the Deep South y'all I will be riding the Jetson bike to and from work instead of the Ram.
Though Jetson will have a stable mate in the form of a 1995 Triumph 1200 Trophy within a week or so, its literally in showroom condition, bone stock, new consumables just put on it and a great price and its in my fave colours for that bike.. British racing green and cream.
two owners 1st one a jet engine mechanic so oil changed every 1,000 miles..second owner a Brit who is ex Royal Navy and a sub jockey. and equally fastidious. I rode one when they were first launched back in the UK and loved it, It was the very first one at the Dealership and I was first person beside the store owner to ride it.
I will keep y'all updated on the Corbin and any iffs or butts about it.

Can you post a picture of the tan seat on the bike?
I’m thinking of changing the seat and curious of what the tan looks like.

I'm not sure if anybody has compared this to a Day-Long upgrade. I am debating between them. I am going to pull the trigger on one or the other this coming winter.

It seems like the Day-Long is more bang for your buck. I would go with the Sunbrella seat.

Proudly Confused,

Unless you can go to the Corbin factory and have the seat custom made and tested , I would avoid it in particular because you want a long distance seat.

My experience is not positive, my Corbin seat was firm like sitting on a park bench.
Also the Corbin seat comes with its own seat pan which is extremely heavy and often not properly shaped to fit the CTX (mine needed modifications).
Customer Support from Corbin is erratic.

The RDL will be built on your CTX pan.

I can't speak to either option for the CTX, but I do have a Corbin on my Burgman (came with it when I bought it). One of my primary requirements before I bought the Burgman depended on the fit of the Corbin seat. Turned out that the seat fit really well to me. Yes, they are very stiff. They do soften a little with time, but then again not much. I found throughout my riding years... short as they are at only 22 years riding... that a softer seat is not good. Feels great in the showroom but after a half hour soft seat starts becoming a torture device. Not saying some softness isn't good, but what is most important is the shape. Without the right shape for YOU it really doesn't matter how soft a seat is. And WITH the right shape for you it doesn't matter how hard it is... to a point. RDL does really well at shaping the seat to the individual, and so does Corbin. There are significant differences between these two regarding how they do this. I don't know about RDL other than what I hear from others. I do know that those who have them wouldn't have anything else. I also know of Corbin seat owners who are totally sold on that one. I like my Corbin seat because it fits. I was lucky since it was put on by the PO of my scoot. This is the primary reason it is important to be very picky about the customization you have done regardless which seat you choose.
