Corbin dual tour seat position?

Can anyone give me a idea of the seating position of a Corbin dual touring seat. Does it move back from stock position down up ? I have a Mustang Summit now. In my 16 it moved me back at least 1.5 inches but on the 18 it seems it sets farther forward. Same bars as the 16 on the 18 and they are way closer to me. Thanks for the help.

Compared to the stock RGU seat I would say back and maybe the same height. I only use it in the winter for the heat or if my wife ever decides I am healthy enough to ride with me.

Ok now Im mildly retarded but I just looked at Corbins site and they are saying the duel tour will fit from 09 up to 18 models. I have the duel tour on my 16 and Im 5'6". It sits me back an inch maybe 2 at the very most. Im running 14" bars. I love the position and feel of the seat. I honestly dont know the difference between the RGU seat and the Corbin other then the fact the RGU seat is butt ugly but Ive heard some guys like it.

A link to a picture of me on mine and seating position. I hope this helps. https://www.roadglide.org/4260145-post17.html

I'm sorry, but I can't give a definitive answer to your question. I pulled the OEM seat pretty quick and swapped between the Corbin heated Dual Tour and the Harley Low Tour solo. My biggest issue with the stock RGU seat was that it was too soft. After 30 miles I would be sinking down to the pan. Now with the RG Special I mostly use the Low Tour seat because I like how I am more 'in' the bike instead of 'on' the bike.

I have a Corbin dual tour on my 2013 FLTRU. I estimate that it moved me back about 1 1/2 inches and down a 1/2 inch or so. Love the seat. Itís great on short hops and all day in the saddle. I think it looks great also

stock seat = bars too close, windshield a little too high
Corbin = bars just right, windshield just right

Corbin is hard but somehow I can comfortably ride all day.
