Hey everyone, just wanted to do a quick intro... Picked up a 2015 Continental GT a few months ago. Love the bike, cant get enough riding in! Didn't intend on buying a RE, was actually on my way to pickup a thruxton when I found it. So far, great bike, no issues, couldn't be more happy!

Only question I have is where in the hell do I fine a two up saddle in black?? Do they even make them? Thanks!

I saw one offered by website in the UK. When I get back to my own computer bookmarks I'll see if I saved it and then post it here.

The link is to the UK distributer and they only show the dual seat with the red or yellow cowl. My experience with dealing with them is not good! They advertise an item as in stock when it's not.

Also he's based in Colorado and not the UK so an email to the US importer or supplying dealer might be the best option.

John, that's good info.
  I'll talk a seat maker friend of mine. I'll ride up to see him and let him look at my Conti.
Cheers,
Bill

            Just curious: What color WAS the stock seat color?

            I just don't understand why someone would buy THIS particular bike and then want to have a 100+ pounds person hanging off the back of it?

            I mean no offense here at all: It would just never enter my mind to have a passenger on this bike and I just don't understand.

I tried two up riding once! My wife hated it,I hated it and my GT hated it. Maybe around the city 10 miles or less under 40mph!
But the long seat with cowl looks more retro

my wife loves the bike too , but its only for very occasional use. A 8yr old boy means that we are pretty grounded and I wont be taking him out on it as he's very risk averse!

I bought the yellow cowl dual seat for the looks too.

I never ride two up.
