I had a Rick Mayer seat on my 2002 LT and I was very unhappy with it, after a couple hundred miles the piping on the edges would dig into my inner thighs making the seat very uncomfortable and downright painful.
Did a "ride in" to his shop when I was out west, he added an inch of padding, wow what a difference that made I liked the seat after that.
Unfortunately I totaled the bike just a couple weeks later.
A few months later I bought a 2005 LT (7500 miles) with a Rick Mayer seat already installed, liked it a lot, thought it was even more comfortable than the seat on my 02.
Fast forward six months:
I've put almost 20K on this bike and the seat is no longer comfortable, it's doing the same thing the seat on my 02 did, I'm getting ready to send it back and ask him to add an inch more padding.
