Each year, Drag Specialties, one of Saddlemen’s major nationwide distributors sponsors a “thank you” getaway ride for their dealers and manufacturers. This year’s was in Northern California. Over the weekend that ended May and began June, two of our folks got a chance to represent Saddlemen, hit the open road, socialize with other people in the industry, and take in the sights of the California shoreline, coastal mountains, and of course, the redwoods…
Saddlemen’s Director of Sales, Stan Alicki (left), and Gary Smith, our “road” sales manager and technical expert extraordinaire (right), ready to hop on their Harley “baggers” and hit the highway from Huntington Beach. Most of the ride north focused on Pacific Coast Highway and U.S. Highway 101. The weather was cool and overcast, and Stan says the heated Saddlemen seat kept the ride comfortable – as did our gel technology in the saddles.
Fresh air and the open highway on a cool spring day along the central coast, leaving the “joys” of big city traffic far behind… Definitely not in “So Cal” anymore!
After several days of riding and fun out along the coast and around the redwoods, it was time to head back south over the Golden Gate, and on home… For Stan and Gary, the six-day trip logged about 1600 miles on their Saddlemen seats.
Watch for a second Redwood Run report, with plenty of photos of the festivities.
