They seem pricey and not as sharp looking as the European custom seat makers. I've pretty much decided that I'll get a seat this winter from either Top-Sellerie or Sellerie-Moillo using this custom design I did in photoshop.

Rick built a two piece saddle for my FJR 1300 about 8 years ago. It was a huge improvement over the stock and beautiful leather work. He had me send a photo of my wife and I on the bike along with our weights and heights. The seat fit like a glove. I've done hours at a time on Alaska roads and all without any butt burn. I'm going to try to modify my stock FZ seat and if I don't get the results I want, I will be calling Rick.
Has anyone had one of the Mayer brothers make a seat for the FZ-09?

Either Rick (Rick Mayer Cycle custom motorcycle seats) or Bill (billmayer-saddles.com)?

I had one on my KTM 950 Adventure. It did a decent job. I'm always a bit reluctant to be the first to have a seat modified -- would rather the builder prefect his/her technique on someone else! :D
