    Rich's custom Seats, up here in Washington. Went with full leather Driver & Pillion.

    Part pebbled leather part fine grain. . My bike is Black Saphhire Met. So did it Black leather with Silver Stitching, both seats still heated and have a gelpad!

    Comfort ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ and looks great!

    Since I could go to the shop, it is completely custom to my rear but Rich does mail order too!

    I have a low suspension model with a low Corbin seat--which I had built up a little bit. It is not as good as the original low Corbin because they screwed up the shape of the seat I had them put on a little bit more foam...though I like this height!

    I find that seats that are really high, of course, have more foam and are comfortable; whereas seats that are lower have less foam and hard as a rock. There does not seem to be a way to find a comfortable low seat.

    Rick.Mayer Seats

    Is Rick Mayer still making seats in 2019? He has made three for me and I have been really happy with them. A year or two ago I heard he was out of business, does anyone know if he is back?
    Thanks

    I figured he would be in jail by now, for all the people he stole from that pressed charges against him. Definitely buyer beware!

    Wow! That bad eh??

    He made a seat for me back in 2004 and although it took a while, the result was quite spectacular, as the K1200LT back then had the most horrendous seat ever produced by BMW...
    It was the first and only time I ever needed to change seats...

    The quality of his seats was never an issue. That he would take your seat base and never deliver, plus he charged up front, was the issue. I had two of his seats, and it took 6 months and a lot of emails, to get them back.
