Seat And Luggage Demo Draws Enthusiastic Interest From River Run Attendees

Saddlemen at Pioneer Lot in Laughlin

This year’s Laughlin River Run in Nevada, proved to be a great opportunity to show off the Saddlemen product line to the riding public. 2010 was the 28th annual River Run, or as it called in the “fine print,” the American Motorcycle Association Southwest Regional Road Riding Convention. We set up our display booth right outside of the popular Pioneer Hotel, where we kept busy talking to a constant stream of visitors.

Saddlemen Products A Big Hit At Nevada Shop’s “Tenth Birthday” Open House

Road Rider of Reno

Recently, our road sales manager and product line specialist, Gary Smith, visited Road Rider Of Reno for their big ten-year anniversary Open House. While there, Gary put on a seminar for the owners and staff on Saddlemen products.

Gary send us several photos from the event. At left, above, in-store music was provided by a Bluegrass band that includes one of the shop’s owners, Zeke Griffin (at right, facing the rest of the band). The center image shows Drag Specialties’ and Parts Unlimited’s Tony Ayalo (wearing the blue shop style shirt) giving a product demonstration.

Road Rider Of Reno is located right off U.S. Highway 395, next to the city’s airport and is located in a powersports mall.

Gary tells us that the folks there described our saddlebags as the shop’s “go-to” bags.

Safety-Related Links On The Web

At recent riding and store events, our sales staff got the chance to speak with members of the California Highway Patrol, and the California Motorcycle Safety Program about the latest efforts to make riding safer, especially considering the growth of motorcycle use for daily commuting.

Both the California Motorcycle Safety Program, in our home state, and the national Motorcycle Safety Foundation, provide a wealth of information and the latest safety-related news for riders and prospective riders.

One of the handiest links on the web comes from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, providing a locator for basic and advanced riding courses across the country.

Traveling out-of-state? This link spells out the nation’s helmet and vehicle laws state by state.

Here at Saddlemen, we believe highway safety is a “two-way street.” With this in mind, we have been quite pleased to see organizations, such as the California Highway Patrol, work to increase awareness of motorcycle safety among the general driving public, with efforts like California’s freeway message board campaign to alert commuters to stay aware of the state’s motorcyclists sharing the road.

At Saddlemen we are proud to show what our expertise, craftsmanship and technology can do to make riding better… and encourage everyone to stay alert and safe on the road.

“One Very Satisfied And Happy Customer”

With the recent introduction of our new range of sport bike seats we have started to offer custom conversions of stock seats to the standards of our three sport bike seat types: “Sport” style, “Tech” style and “Track” style.

One our first customers to get a saddle upgraded and converted with our sport bike seat technology was Robert S., in Minnesota. We reworked his Honda RC51’s stock seat, turning it into the equivalent of one of our Track models. Click on the images below to see them full size

Soon after we shipped the seat back to Robert, we received an e-mail from him, along with the photos seen above.

“I put 91 miles on the new seat and absolutely totally love it!!! It looks awesome and is a perfect compliment to my RC51. And it is way more comfortable than the factory seat. Great workmanship!”

“I was out again yesterday and really really like the new seat. I have had compliments from three people who saw it and asked where I got it, so you maybe getting more business.”

“Thanks again for helping me pick the seat I wanted and for making it happen.”

The response has been exciting to the introduction of our sport bike seat lines – and to the addition of these new styles and technology to our range of custom seat options. We’re always pleased to provide the perfect solution for the needs of the individual rider. Our thanks to Robert for the photos and feedback. We hope he gets years of riding comfort from his revamped saddle.

Low Profile Seats Offer Great Looks With Proven Saddlemen Quality And Support

With spring approaching, or already here across the country, motorcycles everywhere are getting back into use, whether for riding around with friends, commuting to work, or just getting out in the open air after a long winter. One of Saddlemen’s most popular seat styles combines sleek looks with our famous riding comfort and technology for an excellent around-town saddle. Our Profiler seats (and their related Tattoo Profilers and “Endangered” Profilers) are among our most popular saddles.

Saddlemen Low Profile Seats

Our website’s search features can guide you to see what is available for any particular motorcycle.

The Profiler™ provides superior comfort in the ultimate low-profile, slammed seat for two, featuring narrow styling, a thin profile and low riding height. Their specially designed base allows the seat to drop down into the bike for the lowest riding position possible.

Its surprisingly comfortable pilot perch is made with Saddlemen’s famous combination of progressive density foam and SaddleGel™ in the driver’s position, easing tailbone pressure and improving circulation for a smooth, comfortable ride.

Most applications for our Profiler seats come in both SaddleHyde™ leather-look marine-grade vinyl covering, or with natural leather seating panels.

Tattoo Profilers seats offer the same excellent construction, while adding the look of custom embroidered flames, available in five colors. The “Endangered” Profiler features a special alligator-look treatment, specially developed here at Saddlemen.
