Does anyone have any experience with the Corbin Smuggler? I am wondering if it looks as good in person as the pics, fit/finish when installed and how hard is it to add and remove when I want to take someone with me. Thanks!

This is what I am talking about just in case someone thinks I was talking about bootlegging.

The difference between committed and involved is like a ham and egg breakfast, the chicken was involved...the pig was committed!

Thumbs up

I don't own one...but I do think they look very nice on the LT. The fit and finish is excellent. Also, IIRC, it's basically a 20-minute install/uninstall process.

If you like it and got the funds...go for it!

I have had mind for about two months and love it. I had one for my 2001 but never did use it because my wife rode a lot. She does not ride much anymore. The workman ship is great and the paint on mind is just like the bike. It takes about ten minutes to take it off and put the seat on for a passenger. Another 10 minutes if you want the tour pack back on. The bike handles much easier. Wind does not bother as bad.

I had one on my bike when I purchased it. I kept it on for about two months and then took it off. I think the stock top box has more storage. I had one guy tell me it reminded him of a toilet bowl. I just could'nt get that image out of my head after that so I sold it.
