BMS – Custom Motorcycle Seats Announces New Seat Pan & Custom Seat Combination for BMW R1200GS and R1200GS LC.
The industry leader in custom motorcycle seats began rolling out seat pans in January 2014. In the past customers provided BMS with their stock seat pan and BMS custom fit each rider. BMS will still be custom fitting each customer, but now there will be no wait if you are purchasing our aftermarket BMW seat for the R1200GS or R1200GS LC.
Foam Densities (yes, more than one density)
Rocky Mayer approaches custom motorcycle seat design differently from anybody else. Rocky’s philosophy is that no two butts are alike! With that in mind, he determined that different densities of foam should be available to provide appropriate comfort on a case by case basis. The determination for which density to use is subject to the specific needs of the rider. How long they ride, their ride position, the type of motorcycle, etc. etc. This is why we require a lengthy specifications form. Rocky has 5 different foam densities of seat blanks from which he chooses the “right” foam for your butt. This “Mayergonomics” results in the BEST MOTORCYCLE SEAT for YOU.
If you think of foam density this way – would you want a one-size-fits-all mattress firmness? Um…. NO! Why would you want to be pigeon holed into a one-size-fits-all seat that you will be spending as much time on as you spend in your bed?
The other thing we do that not all companies do for some model aftermarket motorcycle seats, is re-use your seat pan. That enables us to ensure that there will be NO problems on your re-installation of your seat. This is an issue that some companies have because their seat pans sometimes just don’t sit flush, some do it yourself rigging may be required to less than perfect fit. This does mean that you will be without your seat for the duration of the shipping each way as well as the time required to customize your seat. Is it worth the wait? See for yourself – browse the testimonials here and read the reviews. According to our feedback, you bet! Yes it’s worth the wait!
And good news! We now offer full seats including seat pans for the 2014 R1200GS and R1200GS LC, so there is NO LONGER ANY WAIT! You can continue to ride until your new seat arrives!
What should you know?
Things to ask other companies before buying a custom motorcycle seat:
- Do you have a variety of foam densities? How many and how do they compare to my OEM seat foam?
- How do you fashion my foam. Is it all one piece?
- If I don’t provide my pan and your pan doesn’t fit my bike well, then what?
- If the seat isn’t what I expected, and doesn’t fit ME right, then what?
BMS Best Motorcycle Seats/Bill Mayer Saddles by Rocky Mayer offers three aftermarket motorcycle saddle lines, our ULTIMA, ENDURA and the ERGO – “Contour”. Like people, no two BMS custom motorcycle seats are alike. Each is custom made based on you and your passenger’s size, weight and riding style.
The design of our ULTIMA and ENDURA custom motorcycle seats are essentially the same until it comes to your choice for your seat cover. ULTIMA seats are made from premium leather and our ENDURA line is made from premium vinyl in a smooth or basket weave finish. Our aftermarket motorcycle seats come standard in black on black, but if you prefer a different color combination or stitching we also keep a wide range of colors in stock for no additional charge. Take some time to browse our galleries to get some ideas for what you’d like for your motorcycle seat. We’ll work with you to design the best motorcycle seat for you.
Our ERGO is designed to provide additional comfort padding without modifying your motorcycle seat.

We customize each aftermarket motorcycle seat specifically to you and your riding style, taking into consideration your ride pillion (passenger seat) if desired. We work with any motorcycle or scooter, and can either retain or add a heated option to your custom motorcycle seat.
When you order a BMS – Best Motorcycle Seats by Bill Mayer Saddle you can either ride to the shop where our expert staff will correctly fit you to your new saddle, order online or order it by phone.. Should you choose to ride your motorcycle in, plan on 3-4 hours for your seat build. There may be several iterations required to get the fit exactly suited to you, and in order to determine best fit, you will test ride your uncovered motorcycle seat until best fit is achieved.
The majority of our customers, due to distance or time (or both) are unable to make a face to face visit on the motorcycle with us for the proper customization. If you can’t make it to the shop we will use our “mayerGOnomic” system to custom fit your seat. Part of the BMS motorcycle seat order process includes an area for you to provide us information we will use in designing your seat. It’s critical that you provide the pictures as requested as those are also used as part of our process.
Personal checks are welcome. Just complete and submit your aftermarket motorcycle seat order to get your order in our build queue.
