Just placed my order and shipped off my stock seat to Terry....https://www.terryscustomseats.com

I had him make a Flat Seat for my 09 Versys back in 2012 i believe and really liked it. The hump for the pillions on seats bother me and i have a bad hip and knees with arthritis so longer trips are a real pain. With the flat seat i can slide back and enjoy the ride. This last year i haven't ridden the bike as much as i have in the past because of not being comfortable. So with the new seat i hope to get out on some all day rides again. Won't get the seat back until sometime in August. Here are a few photos with the one on my Versys 650...

He is a couple towns over. Nice to be able to talk to him in person about my ideas. He has made me 4 one of a kind seats and sometimes he makes more for others once they see mine.
Spent an entire Saturday with him talking bikes and cars while he carved me a seat for my Trophy SE that allowed me to ride all day long.

Got an e-mail from Terry that the seat is finished and shipped will be here 8/22/2018. He said he made it a bigger wider seat since I'm a fat-ass... >:) ... Normal flat seats are 15 inches wide with the wings mine should be 17 inches..

You do realize many of your posts revolve around getting or eating really good food???

What is the price range of those seats? I checked out the site, but didn't see any pricing.

The Flat Seat for my Versys 1000 was $335.00. $300.00 for the seat $10.00 extra for some stitching i requested and $25.00 to have it shipped to me...

Wow, I'd have thought custom work like that would have been much higher. The Sargent seats are over $400!

Yes, Terry is very reasonable with his pricing. Now you do have to send your stock seat into him. I had picked up a Seat Concepts Seat off a forum and sent in my stock seat to Terry. Then i posted the Seat Concepts seat up for sale for $100.00 and a stock seat. That way i was able to ride while he had my stock seat.
