    Rick Mayer Seats

    Looking for a bit more comfort and a little height increase to my low seat solo (1994 K75S)

    Is Rick Mayer the best way to get to better comfort and still be able to shift position in the turns?

    I saw his ad on the MOA Homepage and have seen his booth at the Rally last year.

    Any testimonials good or bad?

    Thank you and ride safe

    I had Rick custom fit a seat for My R11S a couple of years ago, much better than the stocker. Owned Corbin's, and Sargent's on some prior machines. If I had it to all over again...I'd head right on down the road to Rick again. Completely positive experience...

    YMMV

    Worked fine for me in two Ironbutt Rallies.

    Feels good to me..

    I only have 13K on my Rick Meyer seat. I can say that it is a vast improvement over the comfort of the stock 2012 R1200 RT low seat pilot saddle. The price paid was well worth it. No affilliation.

    Since you are going solo on your K75S a new saddle and a set of shocks will enhance your comfort and ride 1000%. It is a no lose win/win.

    I had a Rick Mayer on my Victory Kingpin. I had a Russell on my 1996 K1100LT. When it came time to put a seat on my '11 R1200RT, I went to Russell. Is the RM seat better than a stock seat? Yes. The Russell is just that much better. IMO. YMMV.

    Third bike with my third Rick Mayer seat. I recommend.

    Do a forum search. This topic has been debated many many times. You'll find a ton of opinions and more info than you probably wanted to know.

    Rick Mayer leather on the last two bikes. 07 GS and now a 2011RT. Great seat and I will buy one for that new bike in a year or two.

    RM saddles on my F800GS, my R1100S, and a previous KLR- well over 100,000 miles. Great saddles, great warranty. for pure touring, a Russell DayLong might be better, but if you like twisties, Rick provides a great product.

    Helen has three RM saddles...always bragging to others about her experience...which is great product and service... she doesn't say the same for other brands she has ridden on.
    I haven't put one on my bikes...two had Corbins at purchase. Next recover will be his. I'm not old enough for a Day Long yet
