Do you use regular shoe treatment like Mink Oil on the leather?  I would
think if you keep it out of the sun (which I park in a garage ) and soft
they should really hold up.

John, no gripes from this Corbin owner.  Although, those who don't do
touring or regular commuting may find it uncomfortable.  Corbins are very
dense (hard), and built for day-long comfort.  Think of an old tractor seat
-- very uncomfortable at first, but built to sustain many hours of
continuous use.

I learned the hard way to really protect your Corbin -- as the company
charges more to re-cover the seat than most used ones sell for.  So, I
recommend using the OEM seat for short trips or daily commuting, and switch
out to the Corbin only for long trips.  Protect it from the weather as well.
