Saddlemen Seats have been building quality aftermarket seats for over 25 years, and are known for using 2 proprietary components in their seat construction: SaddleGel and Black Magic Foam. While some seat manufactures stick to a solitary construction format, Saddlemen believes the most comfortable, durable, best looking seats are made from a combination of the two materials. Once Saddlemen has created the seat pan, based off OEM fitment, a unique combination of gel and foam are used for each seat to maximize comfort and a variety of cover materials are used to complement the look of the bike and the rider's needs. The Saddlemen Gel Channel seat collection includes a Tech Seat for the everyday rider, a Track Seat for a more custom look and the Sport Seat that offers aggressive looks and easy maintenance. The Harley's and Custom V-Twins, the Profiler section has some low-slung seat options and the Explorer Series has many metric cruisers options. For lite and heavy Adventure Riding, the Adventure TRACK seat has a comfortable, durable cover and even has a heated option. With great ergonomics, many seat covering options, and even heated options, Saddlemen offers products that are made for enthusiasts, by enthusiasts.

Brad Baker led a group of 9 Saddlemen riders that placed in the top-10 with a 2nd place finish. Bryan Smith joined Baker on the podium, but this 3rd place for Smith was more meaningful than most. Fellow Saddlemen racers Rob Pearson and JD Beach rounded out the top-5.

Mees had already taken the GNC Expert Singles title following Round 12 in Illinois. With a 12-point lead over Halbert in the GNC Combined standings following the Tucson Half-Mile, Mees’ 8th place finish in Pomona was more than enough to make him the 2012 AMA Pro Harley-Davidson Insurance Grand National Championship as well as the Lucas Oil No. 1 plate. Sammy Halbert finished 2nd in the Combined standings, and Bryan Smith and Brad Baker finished 4th and 5th, respectively.

Other notable accomplishments to come out of the Flat Track Awards Banquet included Briar Bauman receiving the Saddlemen Rookie of the Year award.
