Rancho Dominguez, Calif. - August 27, 2013 - Just a week removed from the Indy Mile, Saddlemen riders found themselves in New Kent, VA for the inaugural Colonial Downs Mile. The 9th round of the 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track season, 1.25-mile track played host to a pair of Saddlemen podium sweeps as Jared Mees won the GNC Expert Twins race and Cody Johncox took Pro Singles top honors.

AMA Pro GNC Expert Twins

It looked like business as usual throughout the first half of the Colonial Downs Mile as Saddlemen rider Brad Baker ran out in front with the GNC Expert Twins class leader. That is until the eighth lap when the leader was forced to throw in the towel with a bike malfunction and Baker dropped out of the race. The path to the checkers was suddenly opened for Saddlemen’s Jared Mees and Henry Wiles, but after 18 laps it was Jared Mees that crossed the line aboard his Saddlemen-equipped Harley-Davidson. Wiles followed in second place while fellow Saddlemen rider Brandon Robinson completed the podium sweep.

It was just the first victory of the season and fourth podium for the defending champ, who has jumped up into third in the Expert Twins standings and fourth in the Combined standings. Wiles continued his top-10 streak with his third podium of the season and sits in fourth in Expert Twins and second in GNC Combined. Brandon Robinson is in fifth place on both leader boards after back-to-back podium finishes, and Brad Baker still holds a sizeable lead in the GNC Combined standings despite only recording one point in Virginia.

AMA Pro J&P Pro Singles

The Colonial Downs Pro Singles race was one for ages as Saddlemen riders Cody Johncox, Shayna Texter and Stephen Vanderkuur battled it out in one of the closest finishes in AMA Flat Track history. Johncox started from the second position but it was Vanderkuur that took the early lead in the 10-lap race, while Texter sliced through the traffic from the second row up to the lead pack. Johncox took the lead on the seventh lap and managed to hold off charges by Texter and Vanderkuur, crossing the line just .008-second ahead of Texter. Vanderkuur finished third just .053-second behind Texter as the top-5 riders finished within a half second of the winner.

The victory was just the second of Johncox’s young career and first of 2013, and came just one week after a third place podium finish at the Indy Mile. The second place finish wass the fourth podium placement of the season for Texter and propelled her from sixth in the standings to fourth. Vanderkuur earned his third podium of the season and is in third in the standings. Ryan Wells is still in second place, just five points back from the leader. Wells and Dominic Colindres are the only two riders to record points in every event this year.

RoadRunner Motorcycle Touring & Travel reviews Saddlemen Custom Seat

One of my biggest complaints about riding our ’99 Triumph Speed Triple has always been the seat. Even though I prefer a hard seat to a softer one, the stock option just isn’t comfortable for a long day in the saddle, especially multiple days on the road. The Race Tech suspension is set up sporty, so if the asphalt is less than perfect, it won’t matter if you’re in the middle of a picturesque landscape—you’ll be looking for the first smooth road to turn off on. The stock seat is too slippery when I wear pants made out of anything except leather. Of course, the rain only exaggerates this problem.

When it came time to look for a new seat, we chose Saddlemen for their Gel Channel technology. The channel relieves pressure on your bottom and at the end of the spine, thereby greatly enhancing all-day riding comfort. It can also be color matched to your motorcycle. Our lime-green Speed Triple is difficult to match, but Saddlemen got it just about perfect without even seeing the bike. The other feature of this technology is the gel inserts. At first I thought the seat might be too soft, but after a day of riding without even thinking about pain, the seat has verified itself. The different material also solved the slipping problem. I now feel comfortable and secure.

In addition, the skilled seat makers at Saddlemen’s California factory reshaped the seat slightly to come up higher in the rear for more control during aggressive riding.

We also sent in our passenger seat for a matching cover. Because we never know how a custom seat will finally work out, we found a cheap seat pan online and used it for the custom work. In retrospect, that was unnecessary.

Ever since the new seat was installed, the Speed Triple has seen a lot more exercise.

Rancho Dominguez, Calif. - August 20, 2013 - The eyes of the motorcycle world were focused on Indianapolis, IN this past weekend as the MotoGP, AMA Pro Road Racing and AMA Pro Flat Track descended on this iconic racing city.

Saddlemen rider Brad Baker headed to Indy with a chance to tack more points onto his lead in both the GNC Expert Twins standings and the GNC Combined standings.

Brad Baker, who already has the Expert Singles title under his belt, has been the mark of consistency this season. The 3rd place finish at the Indy Mile extended his top-5 streak to eight races, and keeps Baker in the lead in the Expert Twins and Combined standings. Sammy Halbert, Brandon Robinson and Henry Wiles fill out the Expert Twins 3-5 spots while Jared Mees joins Wiles and Robinson in the Combined top-5.

Saddlemen’s Stephen Vanderkuur nabbed the holeshot and took an early lead, and for a while it looked like the defending Pro Singles champ might get his first win of the season. Fellow Saddlemen rider Shayna Texter was not content in second place, however. Texter chased down Vanderkuur, passed him on the ninth lap, and held on to win her second race of the season. Vanderkuur finished less than a second behind Texter for the 2nd place position, his best mark of the season.

Cody Johncox put in his best ride of the season and completed the Saddlemen podium sweep with a 3rd place finish. Dominic Colindres finished 4th to give Saddlemen four of the top-5 spots.

Watch the video about Henry Wiles' record-breaking win at Peoria

He may have had to work for this one, but at the end of the day everyone in the house knew that the 9th-straight win by Henry Wiles at the Peoria TT was a day of champions for the former 2-Time AMA Grand National Singles Champion.

After losing power on his #17 Don's Kawasaki-sponsored Honda CRF450R, Hammerin' Hank was forced to race his way into the National main event via his semi race at round 7 of the AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles Grand National Championship season in Thunder Valley.

And after starting from the third row in the 18-rider main, Wiles put on a clinic on clean passing as he methodically picked off rider after rider throughout the event's first 10 laps before taking the lead and soaring on to another victory at Henry's House and setting a new record of 9-straight wins in Sunday's running of the annual Peoria Motorcycle Club-hosted event. Henry now sits second in the series points standings.

One of those riders Wiles worked his way around was Steve Bonsey on the #80 Zanotti Racing Honda entry (shown above) who fell to the King of Peoria between turns one and two early in the event's running. But as he did with the near 15 riders he was forced to work his way around, Hank made it clean and pretty in his romp to the front. It was truly a great day for Henry, and it was a pleasure to be there to take in the history that he made of the day!

Major accomplishments from Sundays Peoria T.T. August 11th 2013

  • A record 9 Wins in a row at the Peoria T.T.
  • Now 10th on the all time win list at 24 national wins

Brad Baker Claims GNC Expert Singles Title

Rancho Dominguez, Calif. - August 13, 2013 - The 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track Series hit the halfway point at the Peoria TT this weekend, and Saddlemen celebrated yet another class championship and podium sweep as well as an historical achievement.

AMA Pro GNC Expert Singles

The last time someone other than Henry Wiles won the Peoria TT, the Summer Olympics in Athens were wrapping up, gasoline prices were hitting record highs at around $2/gallon, and Facebook was just getting off the ground. The year was 2004.

Henry Wiles headed to Peoria, Illinois tied with AMA Hall of Famer Chris Carr for the most consecutive wins at a single facility with 8; both coincidentally at Peoria. Wiles was not only chasing the record, however. Just two points behind Brad Baker in the GNC Expert Singles standings, Peoria served as the fourth and final Expert Singles race of the season and Wiles was in as good a position as anybody to claim the 2013 title.

After being forced to qualify in a semifinal, Wiles was slotted in the third row as the GNC racers lined up for the start of the main event Sunday. Wiles kept his cool, however, meticulously picking his way through the field and charging into the lead on lap nine and holding on to beat Baker by more than three seconds.

Wiles claimed his 9th straight victory at Peoria, but the new record holder for most consecutive wins at a single facility fell just short of a second honor on the weekend. Saddlemen rider Brad Baker put in a strong 2nd place effort, enough to stay ahead in the points tally and claim the 2013 GNC Expert Singles title.

JD Beach returned to Flat Track competition for just the second time this year. Taking a break from his successful season in the Daytona SportBike class, Beach finished 3rd at Peoria. Briar Bauman finished in 5th.

Brad Baker is the 2013 GNC Expert Singles champion, with Henry Wiles finishing in 2nd, Jared Mees finishing 3rd and Steven Bonsey finishing 5th. The six remaining rounds will decide the GNC Expert Twins and Combined champions, however Baker holds onto comfortable leads in both races. Sammy Halbert is in 2nd in the Expert Twins standings, while 2012 Champ Jared Mees joins Wiles in the Combined standings top-5.

It was Bromley’s second podium finish of the season, and he sits in 10th place in the standings.

Saddlemen’s Ryan Wells finished 7th at Peoria, adding precious points to his strong 2013 campaign. Wells has been the mark of consistency in the Pro Singles class this year, finishing in the top-10 in every event. Wells is tied for the class lead with just four events remaining on the Pro Singles schedule.

Rancho Dominguez, Calif. - August 6, 2013 - Saddlemen rolled into Castle Rock Race Park with high expectations and racers vying for some crucial mid-season points. Just about the halfway point of the season, Round 6 resulted in four podium finishes highlighted by the first win of the season for Dominic Colindres in Pro Singles.

GNC Expert Singles

Jared Mees led the way for Saddlemen riders in the GNC Expert Singles race at Castle Rock. With just four races in the Expert Singles Championship every event is an opportunity for critical points.

Mees seemed to sense the urgency as he jumped out to grab the holeshot off the line. Mees was unable to hold the lead, however, and settled into third behind fellow Saddlemen rider Briar Bauman for a majority of the race. Bauman was pressing for the lead late in the race when he crashed, preventing him from finishing the race.

Mees took 2nd place and Steven Bonsey joined him on the podium in 3rd. Henry Wiles started in 13th position but picked his way through the crowd to finish 4th, and Brad Baker rounded out the top-5.

With just one round remaining and a tight spread in the points standings the GNC Expert Singles title is anybody’s to claim. Brad Baker leads the group with 45 points, while Mees follows with 44, Wiles with 43, and Brandon Robinson with 42. Baker also leads the GNC Combined standings by a wide margin, with Wiles, Robinson and Mees all in the top-5.

J&P Pro Singles

Saddlemen rider Dominic Colindres was dominant in his winning ride at Castle Rock Race Park. Colindres, who finished 4th in the Pro Singles class in 2012, has gotten his 2013 season off to a bumpy start with just one top-10 finish heading into Round 6. Starting in pole position, Dominic led the race wire-to-wire and won his first of 2013 by more than two seconds.

Bronson Bauman may have only turned 16 a couple months ago, and thereby qualified for AMA competition, but he is already showing that he belongs with his first career podium at Castle Rock. Bauman started in fifth but after working his way into second was able to cruise to a comfortable 2nd place finish.

The victory launched Colindres from 9th in the standings up to 4th, and with just five Pro Singles races left on the schedule both Colindres and Ryan Wells are within striking distance for the class title. Bauman continues to fly up the standings with solid results, this week cracking the top-10.
