    R1200GSA 2013 Rider & Passenger seat options

    Well Im the proud new owner of a new BMW I bought it from Gateway in December 2012 We are finally getting to ride some and find the stock seat to be terrible, any suggestions would be appreciatied I dont mind spending a little money for comfort we are planning some long trips this summer, I have talked to Rick Mayer and I am considering him, but I would still like some opinions. Thanks Steve Mooney!

    Bill Mayer, Rocky.

    Rick's brother in SCal did mine, GSA1200, 500$ even. This was about 4+ years ago, front and back seat. Comfy, yes. My only wish is the seat could be softer, but shaped well and tons better than original seat. 90000m on this seat now and its wearing well, showing no wear. Randy

    Russell Day Long... probably the best in the business!

    Touratech Kahedo. It was the only seat I could find that didn't lower the seat height. It's very firm, which is what my butt likes.

    I have the Corbin, front & rear heated, I ride 1K days and have no issues. a friend has a Sergeant heated and love that! Just more options to think about.. I think if I was to buy again I would look into the Sergeant his really seems to fit better but I have not ridden on it?.

    I must have a Teutonic ass, because I find the stock seat very comfortable - even when on the bike for 500+ mile days.

    Winning the Money

    Well I was the lucky winner at Gateway BMWs open house this spring I won the $2500.00 gift from the MOA, this solved my seat problem, I was just getting ready to send my stock seat to Rick Mayer before I won, I ended up buying a Saddleman Adventure Seat and we are very satisfied with it, I still might end up sending my stock out to get it rebuilt sometime or another, thanks everyone for the advice and a special thanks to the MOA for drawing my ticket at Gateway BMW that was very cool!
