Finally got my seat

Finally, the seat I ordered on 2/8/14 arrived on 6/7/14. I'm glad to finally have this over since it's been a colossal waste of my time. Thanks to all that helped: the BMW MOA, the BBB, this forum, my credit card company, the RBPD. I hope others that are waiting get there's soon and also hope my experience serves as a warning to anyone considering doing business with RMC. Buyer beware. You've been warned....again.

Chris

The rally vendor list includes Bill Mayer but no mention of Rick Mayer.

So I guess the question I have is whether the "Rick Mayer" who is conducting the seminar is the same Rick Mayer who is the subject of this thread.
It's him. He did an Iron Butt a few years ago and has been flogging his seats with his picture at the finish. If he's not listed as vendor (because that costs $$) it would not come as a surprise if he's handing out his seat building flyers at his seminar. If you attend, be sure to let us know.

Sounds like a week of not working on current orders while soliciting more new orders.

sent from my Moto X

Yup. It is all about cash flow.

That's odd because their is this big thread on MOA about Rick Mayer ripping off members.

Rick Mayer

He has done 3 seats for me. WR 250 one is great. 1150 GS is good too. I sent the 1200 gs seat back for adjustment and he did it right. Yes on the 1200 I had another seat to use while work was done. For the price I think he is hard to beat. Yes, the time taken can be a challenge. Rip off? that has not been my experience. Each to his own, but my experience on the net is that some people find another outlet for their road rage, sitting in front of their window to the whirled.

never seen such consumer consensus on bad customer service!

i gotta wonder how this thread (started in January 2003!!!!) and his business continue to exist?? don't people seek reviews before they spend $$$$ on new seats? does that crappy tiny ad in BMW ON work that well? sheesh!

I still never got a rain cover I ordered for my seat I bought almost a year ago. And he does not answer his phone..plus the fact that even after 2 adjustments the seat he made for my 2011 Kawasaki Concours was not built correctly. I've got nothing good to say about him and his seats.

The "free" rain cover is his fishing lure. 10 years ago I never received the promised rain cover either, even after hounding him for 6 months.
