Terry Adcox Seat for the FJR....

Well I believe that I am going to go with a Terry Adcox custom seat for my FJR.
.
Made trip to the Smokey Mountains last October on a 2 week trip last October on the stock seat without a problem.
Recently made a 4 days trip to Arkansas and that d_mm seat nearly killed my arss.

Last October my buddy and I went by Terry's shop and visited.
Heck of a nice guy and very knowledgeable.

Does any of the membership here ride on his seats???
Opinions Please...

I don't ride with a passenger; and use a Corbin Smuggler.

I'm 6 foot 2 inches. 195 lbs. And ride with the seat in the upper position.
I have even talked to Terry about building the seat up and additional inch to enhance knee position.
Anyone in a similar circumstance.

Made a deal with Terry.
He is building the seat.
I would rather spend my $$$ with him; a craftsman.
Not a corporation of mass production.
A riding buddy and myself stopped by his place last October on the way to the Smoky s.
Heck of a good fella and he knows what he is doing....

Spoke with Terry again tonight even after working hours.

His main concern was being that he built my seat to my needs.

What a guy! And a TRUE craftsman!!!!

I can't wait!

Sounds like a better communication than Laam.



In the big scheme of things, I'd still go with the Russell. Far from "mass production corporation". I've always had a conversation with the builder doing my seat when he/she got it queued to make.
Red On Rockwell and bjoynes like this.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.
