    Been lurking for awhile, 1st post. I love my Bill Mayer Saddle for my 95 R1100Gs. Used the stock saddle for about 15,000m. Switched to a custom Travelcade Gel saddle and it was worse than the stock seat. I DO NOT recommend Travelcade. Spent 15,000m on it any way. I never could understand how riders were able to do 1000m days when I was in pain after 150m. I now understand. With my BMS saddle I have logged back to back 750m days and am trying to find the time to do 1000m and entry into the IBA. My BMS is perfect --Glen

    Yes I went to his shop in Ojai. It is about 1 1/2 hr ride from L.A. Great service, Rocky stripped off the Travelcade(crap), and put his custom foam on my seat pan. Did some real rough shaping and had me take it for a ride with no cover to feel for any hot spots. I told him where I thought it needed adjustments and he went at it with sanding tools. He has a few densities of foam and put me on medium. I weigh about 180lbs. Dependng on weight he uses different foam. I am pretty sure he did not need my input for the final shaping. He is so familiar with that mold, he knows were there is too much foam.-- Glen

    I couldn't agree more, I LOVE my BMS, Rocky is fantastic at what he does. I put 14k on mine this summer and never thought about my A$$ once, which means it did its job. I followed his instructions and sent pics along with my pan.

    here here! rocky and ricky know a thing or two about saddles.

    only complaint with my rocky is that you tend to discover other areas of your body that start hurting before your ass!
