Terry Adcox 2 up seat.

Bought seat as part of group buy. I got the 2 up seat with the "H" pattern whit stiching. The seat looks beautiful. Went for a short 1hr ride this morning and wow what a difference. The "bucket" he creates really supports you. Luv it

He does more than is listed on the page and his contact info is listed. He doesn't have a website that I could find.

I finally took the plunge and ordered up a Terry Adcox seat for my xmas present. It seems like quite a few others are doing the same thing given the lead time. I went with the double with H stitching and perforated center and black thread. The double ATV pads have gotten me by but still only extended my riding time to a few hours. Terry's wife worked with me on the seat and they take your measurements and weight, and the weight for the passenger. Great folks to work with. At this point the lead time is about 5-6 weeks.

Same but black thread

Got mine (half moon double bucket) in 06/2014, and no complaints from me or my wife. We're able to ride "all day" now with no complaints. Without this seat and the Givi AirFlow, the bike just wasn't any fun to ride for more than an hour or so. Now we both look forward to our longer rides.

Beautiful. Yes - my wife complained after about an hour on the stock rear seat. An MRA X-screen on a Parabellum is what I have and that or an Airflow it is a requirement IMO.

Consider a Madstad over either of those.

I have the Adcox seat and it's very nice and lowers the bike ( as requested ) for me.

Do the wings get in the way of putting your feet down at stops? I had a Russell that came with my bike and the wings were in the way when stopping. But the Russell wings were quite firm. I wonder if these are softer and give more.

I got mine modded by Rick Mayer. Pretty much the same configuration, but then how many ways can a seat be modified to make it wider and more dished?

I question all that decorative stitching, though. Makes a lot of handy holes for rainwater to enter.

I put a silicone boot spray on the stitching of all of my seats and it pretty well eliminates the issue but I also avoid rain most of the time.
