I need a new seat for my Electra Glide, a nice seat. Corbin makes some of the best seats and that's what I decided to go with. I looked on-line. They have an option to move your seat up 2 inches. I might like my seat up a bit but how much? Then I saw that if you come to their factory they can make a seat specially for you. So that's what I decided to do.
Their factory is in Hollister California. It looks like it's time for a road trip. I live in Durango Colorado. I took a couple of days off and headed out on my Harley.
I decide to take a scenic side route. Just before reaching the Four Corners area I turn northwest. This loop takes me into south-eastern Utah and through Monument valley. You can see from this map that the most direct route would have taken me through NE Arizona but instead I go through SW Utah.
This map is just of Monument valley and the alternate route. The yellow circle is where the four states meet (the Four Corners Monument). The lower gray path is the more direct route on Highway 160. I took the more northern route marked in blue. If you are headed through the Four Corners area I highly recommend this route.
It's fall but this area is very arid. You can see the colorful trees that are able to get water near the San Juan River.
You can see that much of this terrain is rock. There isn't much dirt.
There is a lot of sandstone near Mexican Hat Utah.
Mexican Hat is a very small town named after a rock formation that looks like an upside down sombrero. The above picture is of the Mexican Hat Rock that gave the town it's name. This next picture is the same picture cropped down to show Mexican Hat Rock (just left of the center of this picture).
