Arm rests

I ran across this bike while messing around and I noticed it has some passenger arm rests like i have never seen before. Does anyone know who made these? Has anyone seen these before? Thank you

Re: Arm rests

That is some kind of custom backrest with built in armrests. Maybe someone will recognize it.

Re: Arm rests

Looks like Corbin's work. Go to www.corbin.com, then navigate to BMW -> K1200LT.

Re: Arm rests

I read some reviews somewhere that weren't too good. Evidently some find the arm rest angle uncomfortable, and others don't like the fact that the arm rests are fixed in position and cannot be flipped up out of the way.

2013 BMW K1600GLT (I love this bike!)...
2005 BMW K1200LT, a/k/a "Fat Bottomed Girl" (traded for 2013 K1600GLT)...
1998 Honda VFR800, the finest sport/tourer ever created...
1978 Yamaha DT400E, because I just can't leave the sound of a two-stroke behind...

Corbin. Absolutely. I really don't care for the look, personally.
