Awesome day at Rich's Custom Seats!
Rich Conner, owner of Rich's Custom Seats, had a grand opening at his new facility on Saturday. Man, what an event! Rich provided pulled-pork sandwiches, slaw, drinks and some great carrot cake, along with live music and drawings for door prizes and a 50/50 drawing that gave money to a local charity.
Rich's facility is nothing short of incredible. He even built in some "guest quarters" so that riders that come in from long distances can hang out, take a nap or even spend the night. The quarters are set up with a computer with internet access, a TV, a full kitchen and even a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, (I could have used that after riding the 900 or so miles from Colorado in 20 hours in '05, on my stock seat, to get my custom seat built).
I believe Rich makes the finest seats available. He has ridden a number of Iron Butt Association certified rides, including a 100 CCC, (coast-to-coast-to-coast in under 100 hours). He knows his stufff and, more importantly, really knows how to take care of his customers. Next month I'll be riding my third Iron Butt Rally on my Rich's seat.
If you're ever in the Seattle area you owe it to yourself to take the ferry ride to Kingston and check out his shop.
