DukeNukem I did see that on his website today. Although, the general 20% off only applies to vinyl. The fjr group buy applies to leather, vinyl, and heat.

s.ga.rider You can buy one outright for 20% off right now on there site.

DukeNukem This offer is still open guys. It has also been extended out to all other makes and models of motorcycles. So please let me know if you or a buddy of yours is interested!

DukeNukem Hello everyone, Just a quick bump here.

The group buy is scheduled to start tomorrow and I'm still lacking numbers to make this happen. So for any interested, PM me. I'll send you Rock's email. That way, he can address any questions or concerns directly with you.

Thanks!

bounce You're right. Rocky was a mess, Bill made the original design and was prevented from copying it when he sold the company to Russell. Old man Mayer was reported to have said that, while he made a really good seat using different types of foam, it could never be as good as his original design (sold to Russell). Laam reports to have a good design as long as you don't expect it to be delivered based on any kind of schedule (according to quite a few people).

Is just one such thread. Every satisfied customer was one who sent it off without the need or expectation to get it back until it showed up.

--update--

Even more people reporting mixed results on another thread. Seems mail-ins that have been waiting a long time get bumped for short-notice ride ins. Good design. Good execution. Poor scheduling.

Actually no. Well you might be able to find bad reviews of any business, but with respect to Rocky Mayer, the reviews appear to have a great deal of merit. The guy has had some legendary problems which have resulted in riders losing both seats and money.

The complication here is that the Mayer family tree is complicated, and one of the Mayer businesses has consistently produced good work, on time.

Coincidentally, I believe the original Russell seat was designed by Bill Mayer, before he left and set up on his own. However, that design was patented and owned by the company, so Bill's seats didn't use the same suspension system.

I have no doubt that Laam makes a quality seat and I did consider buying one from him. A riding buddy of mine has a BMS that I got to test out and loved it. After a lot of consideration, I just preferred the look of the BMS seat over the Laam. To each their own though!
