I don't have any advice regarding Adcox as I've no experience w/ his product, but at the risk of a thread drift I just have to say how nice your Smuggler looks. Everytime I see one of those things I think to myself that it may be the nicest mod/upgrade one can make to the FJR...just absolutely beautiful...looks stunning on your bike, especially in that '14 red.

If they weren't so darn expensive, I'd already have one on my bike as well.

I was blessed to find one used but like New for $500.

I do not ride 2 up with the FJR; and really don't care for a top box.

I store my tire repair, tools, camera gear, and rain gear in it.

Very spacious...

I love it.

Got an e-mail from Terry Adcox today.

"Hi Darrell:
I was able to work all weekend on your seat. ( I had a seat that was to come in Friday but didn't make it ) So I built your seat.
Anyway I have finished and shipped your seat.
USPS # exp del 8/12/19.
I build the seat up 1" at the lowest point. Raised the nose to stop your sliding forward.
I used the foam you provided for a pattern to cut out for the center of the seat. I cut the foam down 2" and filled with a super soft foam ( like the white foam on the head restrain ) I then tapered this off so as not to have a edge that you could feel. I covered the complete seating area with 1/2" foam which will have to have a few hours of seat time to stretch here to be soft but hopefully will be soft enough to keep the pressure off the bones that you are having trouble with. With this cent
Thanks and I hope this works good for you.
Terry"


The seat is on the way!!!!!

Now have to wait for a week til delivery.......

Looking forward to feedback, pics and review as he will be just down the way from where I will be moving. Heard really good feedback on his quality but no one that has an FJR.
