Each Bag is Designed for a Specific Model & Hugs the Bike’s Frame

The nostalgic styling of Saddlemen’s rigid-mount Desperado bags is emphasized with details such as conchos, chrome studs and three locking buckles for security.

These traditionally shaped cargo carriers feature inner stiffeners to maintain the bag’s shape when it’s empty, and a solid ABS plastic-molded back and bottom support to offer additional shape retention and allow the unit to mount directly to the frame or struts for a custom fit. Select models even offer a quick-detach mounting option that allows them to be removed for off-bike use; check for your bike’s application.

I recently bought a roadsofa seat from an individual from eBay. I installed it yesterday and road my bike in to work today, which is a one hour trip. I will have to say that before today after riding for about twenty minutes my butt would begin to become very uncomfortable. Today for the first time in the three years that I have ridden my bike I had no comfort problems at all. Your seat has taken something that was fun, butt painful, and made it a complete joy. I am not sure what you did , or how you did it (butt) I really appreciate it. THANK YOU from well below the bottom of my heart.

Saddlemen says every bag is specially built for each bike model, so bag applications are designed to hug the specific bike’s frame. The Desperados are made for heavier loads and maximum durability, and the exterior material construction is waterproof, allowing for easy clean-up with a damp cloth. All hardware and installation instructions are included. The bags have integral built-in turn signals as required, or relocation instructions are supplied if necessary. The exterior material used on the bags’ body is a stylish, synthetic leather with real leather trim.

The Desperados are available in two sizes: 14 inches long by 10 inches tall by 6 inches wide, or a larger capacity that is 17.5 inches long by 12 inches tall by 7.5 inches wide.

 

Thunder Bob and Tom Monroe award the first Tattoo Saddle

This profile orginally appeared on Metric Thunder’s web site.

MetricThunder.com conducted the Thunder Saddle Tattoo Contest sponsored by Saddlemen, which ran monthly from November 2006 through June of 2007. Thunder Bob and Tom Monroe introduce the first winner of the contest in Indianapolis.

It’s an online tattoo contest where the winner receives a custom Thunder Saddle for his/her motorcycle with the tattoo embossed in the seat of the saddle.

Contestants submit a photograph of their tattoos at the MetricThunder.com website. Celebrity judge Keith Ball of www.Bikernet.com selects the best of the best for that month to be stitched into a custom Thunder Saddle.

We have seen some really outstanding ink work from Bikers and I’m excited to see the finished product on the Thunder Saddles.
