I ordered them early May, they shipped quickly from the factory, took a month to arrive, because of COVID-19 ...
Installation was a breeze.


It is not really a back rest, but it is high enough to prevent my wife from sliding off the seat
How is the bike two-up, comfort-wise for the missus?

I’m still trying to coax the other half out of biking semi-retirement (something about “not wanting to die.......”)

I did read one review in Built magazine over here where the guy said it was fab two up, but that’s about the only mention I’ve ever seen re. pillion provision......

Let's just say that it is a work in progress

As I mentionned earlier, I haven't been riding for more than 30 years ... so this is almost all new for her
BUT we have been out a few times, without arguing

My asking you must have aligned the stars - the little ‘un went to his grandmas’ this weekend, I suggested a ride out, and she agreed, so we went for a little 50 mile pootle.

Apart from the stock seat (which I had to reattach, as the Corbin is really only a 1.5 seat), she didn’t really have any complaints, and the bike didn’t seem to struggle at all - I didn’t notice any real difference in pulling power etc. I refit the Fehling rack too, for something to hold on to, but she tells me she didn’t, and just used it a little for support.

Whilst we probably wouldn’t tour two-up on it, all in all, it was a good experience!
