    I guess it all depends on what your DN-01 is used for, i.e., touring, back-n-forth to work, cruising the boulevards, etc. Truthfully, sources for add-ons are limited due to the rarity of the bike. A "better" windshield IS a must IF you do plan on "distance" riding. Storage sucks so "saddlebags" may be needed OR a backpack ... which I use. (I like keeping the "smooth" lines of the bike!) Search the Internet for "availability"/ideas/pictures of what's out there and what people have done to their DN-01s. A DN-01 is a thing of beauty and a "work in progress."

    Default Corbin question

    Hi Lady Hawk,
    I am 5'2", considering the Corbin. Does the back support at the rear of the driver seat make good contact? The stock seat left a few inch gap and offered no support to hold me upright towards handlebars. Also, do you have a comfortable leg position to floorboards? The stock seat was actually too low for me, so I would like to sit a bit higher but still reach the ground at stops.
    Thanks, Sharona

Although it is wider making it a little bit of a stretch to put feet down flat for this 5'3 rider. Also an inch and a bit longer too. After about 1000km break-in it fits like a glove.

Doesn't look TOO COOL when riding with the Sporties!

    400$ each seat plus chipment is hard to pay

    "....knock-off" backrest similar" where did you find this. either my ebay is different or i dont know the exact words to search.

    thx

    I know Corbin seats ARE NOT cheap, I was able to 'find' a used one for $125 off Ebay, MANY years ago. As far as the 'knock-off' backrest, I took the measurements of the mounting bracket hole of the Corbin and found a 'generic' new rest for $35. It wasn't easy, I had to do a LOT of searching. This was my story. Sorry I can not help you more.

    I was really bummed to see that Corbin doesn't make a Smuggler for the DN-01; I really liked the one I had on a previous bike.
