Well, I’m getting into this post way late but thought I’d contribute my two cents. I had a Bill Mayer Saddle (BMS) made for my 2017 GSA in Salt Lake and love it. It was $600 but that was at the Rally. I figure my backside is worth it, especially on a bike which should last me several years. I’ve had no experience with other manufacturers except for the stock piece of doo doo that came on the bike. Rocky Meyer told me he was curtailing his manufacturing from custom jobs year round to large events and rally’s such as the RA rally in Pa in 2018. If considering BMS I’d check to make sure he’ll be traveling from California to Pa. next year. Good luck!
