Saddlemen Workmanship And Technology Gets Customer “Back In The Saddle Again”

Rick H. of California recently had us construct a custom seat for him, to help get back into riding (comfortably) after suffering a bad tailbone injury. Working with Rick, our customer service staff and seat builders made a seat based on our Explorer design to help him out.

Within days we received an email response, with images, from Rick – “the guy with the crushed tailbone.”

“Thanks for the great seat. Use these [photos] for the next guy that wants a custom seat. It is perfect!”

Upcoming Race To Decide Dirt Track Title

Jared Mees Professional Flat Track Rider

The final flat track race of the year will be held this Saturday, returning to the historic Los Angeles County Fairgrounds in Pomona, California, with Saddlemen Racing’s Jared Mees poised to capture his first AMA Pro Grand National Championship. Racing fans know that for many years Pomona was the site of epic two-wheeled battles where racers of courage threw their 750cc mounts sideways chasing wins and championships.

Join us this weekend at Gene Romeros Flat Track AMA National race at the Fairplex in Pomona to root for Saddlemen-sponsored Jared Mees as he races to take his first AMA Pro #1 plate. After a very consistent season, Jared holds a 15 point lead heading into this final round of the season.

Grand National Championship returns to the super fast 5/8-mile track at the Pomona Fairplex for the first time in a decade. The AMA Pro motorcycle races will be co-sanctioned with Gene Romero’s West Coast Flat Track Series (WCFTS) and will be run under current AMA Pro Flat Track rules and regulations.

There are a limited number of reserved seats still available at $40.00. General Admission tickets are also available at all Ticketmaster outlets for $30.00; and tickets for children 12 and under are just $10.00. Tickets are available online at, and at participating Southern California Harley-Davidson dealers. Get your tickets now, as the season finale at Pomona is expecting a capacity crowd to witness this first-time co-sanctioned National Championship event.

We’ll see you at the races!


The EXR1000 – A Great New Addition To Our Luggage Line

Saddlemen EXR1000 Accessory Bag

Keep an eye open for the latest addition to Saddlemen’s expanding family of motorcycle luggage.

Available soon will be our EXR1000 Accessory Bag. The EXR1000 features a seat harness system that easily attaches under a motorcycle’s seat for secure mounting. This mounting harness can also function with Saddlemen backrest, seat and sissy bar bags and other accessory motorcycle bags. An under-seat harness-and-strap mounting system holds the bag in place – better than using straps or elastic cords alone, and quick-disconnect mounting straps allow removal of the accessory bag from a motorcycle in seconds.

The EXR1000 also works well as a generously sized handlebar bag, and will come in both a studded “Desperado” style and a non-studded version, as seen above.

The EXR1000 with come with thorough instructions and all necessary mounting gear. Its another addition to Saddlemen’s range of standard-setting luggage, maintaining our reputation for value, convenience and flexibility.
