I take a friend on the back about once a month and was wondering about their comfort too. By the way, how do you prefer to be paid when taking overseas orders? Cheers. Zag.
Zag, that seat on my bike belongs to one of my customers. The slight dip you see is the transitional shape it takes when we raise the seat to that height, in this case the customer wanted something taller than stock.
Since the seat slopes from it's original form, the new mods change the geometry in the front leaving some of the original angulation intact not by much and hardley noticable.
The other thing to keep in mind is that the bike changes seat geometry once it's off the center stand to a more level position and changes again once there is body weight added, all of wich I take into consideration when I build the seats.

Best way to get a hold of me is through my e-mail at renazco@sbcglobal.net
and I can direct you to payment methods, thanks for your interest.

Thumb Kudos to Boejangles!

As you know if you read this thread I was amongst the 3 first lucky customers for James' seat. In my previous post I mentioned how happy I was with the seat extensively tested during the 5000 miles of the PCQ.

When I came back though, James called me to tell me that he needed to redo my seat since he had improved the design since he did mine. Talk about customer service!

It is true that we both agreed on a "conservative" design for my initial seat since I couldn't really try it before the PCQ. So it was very close to the stock seat in shape but with gel inside, 2 different foams and this great suede on top. Definitely a major improvement.

I finally got a chance to try the new design during a great trip last weekend and I'm amazed that he was able to improve the seat so much . He changed both one of the foams and the design ot the seat. The best part I think is that he was able to get rid of the "dip" without increasing much the height which was very important to me since I'm only 5'10.

I seriously don't think James' 950 seat could be any better now with this excellent compromise:
- He preserved the seat narrowness and height (< 1" difference?)
- But he improved so much the "butt riding" position and the comfort of the support

The best compliment I suppose is that I forgot about the seat very quickly during my ride

As James learns more with each seat he makes... I'm sure that looking back he sees a point where he could catagorize seats as V 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 and so on.
A big improvement justifies a customer upgrade... the fact that he took it upon himself to contact you only reinforces my appriciation for him and his work.

You the man, James.

Thanks for the nice compliments guys, JL glad to hear the seat is working out good for you. My goal is to keep my customers happy and sometimes I have to bite the bullet cost wise to do it. The seats are a lot of work and it's an extended process, not your typical add foam, recover and send it down the road type.
Recently I have discovered that much can be done on these dual sport seats accomodating long travel comfort and stand up (pegs) without sacrificing into the big hip hugger effect.
To clarify this I took some photos of some pre-finished seats to show what I'm doing as regards more butt surface area without interference with your on the peg riding. The key here is the transition that takes place when you get off your seat to stand on the pegs and vice versa. You don't want anything locking you up when your sliding back and forth to compensate your riding line/terrain.
Here's a 950 seat in the works,

Top back,


The transition is smooth without any hesitation form seat to pegs or back and forth, love handles are tapered.
Here's a finished seat showing that the love handles are almost non existent,

Will be out Nov 24th thru Dec 15th

On the count that I'll be in the middle of a major remodel in my new home I'll be out Nov 24th through Dec 15th. I won't be taking anymore seat orders untill after the 15th of December. I'll check my PM's & e-mail in between times but I can't promise a quick response.

Btw, are there any local guys that can give me a hand with my website?
My website is still in it's infancy state and I just need someone to clean it up for me. I'll build a seat for ya
