Refurbished Touring Seat For 1991 Machine Gets Enthusiastic Approval From Owner

1991-GL-Combo-1

Saddlemen recently received an e-mail from satisfied customer Jim B., of Virginia. Jim had us refurbish and re-cover one of our Road Sofa touring seat packages, and sent comments and photos our way after he installed it on his GoldWing.

"The seat is simply amazing - the workmanship is second to none, the fit on the bike is superb (even better than the old, OEM factory seat) and the comfort is something that, unless you’ve tried it, you may never know how comfortable you could be over the one size fits all, factory molded vinyl seat.

 

GoldWing-Right-Bike

I think others may think the seat is an on the shelf item, but when they call to order like I did, then you learn that your company actually asks you questions in regards to your height & weight to make the seat an exact, ‘your size’ seat, that will fit & wear perfectly for years to come.

I ride my bike year-round unless it is icy out, so my bike is starting to get up there in mileage and some paint fade, but I can tell you my seat is perfect in fit & comfort and a real pleasure to enjoy while out on my ‘ol Wing.

Thanks again for the superb customer service and going beyond the distance to make sure everything was done correctly and professionally, and in a very timely manner.

Sincerely,

Jim"

 

1991-GL-Combo-2

Our thanks to Jim for his feedback and continued patronage. We're pleased to know the seat works so well for you.

Whether producing a brand-new seat from one of our popular seat lines, or customizing or refurbishing, an existing seat, we at Saddlemen look forward to helping improve the riding experience of our customers. That's the cornerstone of our business. We hope we can improve your ride as well...

Recently, Saddlemen's Jerry Beaty represented us at the Anaheim - Pala MX "Super Showcase" at the Astor Classics Event Center in Anaheim, California. Organized by two of the nation's largest motorsports products distributors, Drag Specialties and Parts Unlimited, the Super Showcase hosted about 30 manufacturers of a wide range of motorcycle parts and accessories, and gave us the opportunity to show our products to the people who get our seats and luggage out to the riding public.

Besides being a great opportunity to increase interest in Saddlemen products, it also lets us inform customer service professionals about the specifics of our seats and luggage, so they can better assist customers and potential buyers.

Champion Racer And Father Of Saddlemen-Sponsored Flat-Trackers Passes Away At 48

We at Saddlemen wish to express our condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Randy Texter, who passed away on August 30th. With our long-standing connections to racing, and our racing sponsorships, a number of the Saddlemen "family" had known Randy for many years.

Randy was a former championship racer, winning the 1990 AMA U.S. Twin Sports championship in road racing, and for many years was the owner of Pennsylvania's Lancaster Harley-Davidson.

He was also the father of two young flat track racers we have the privilege to sponsor, Cory Texter and Shayna Texter. Our sympathies go out to them, and all of Randy's family.
