Handy Saddle Extensions An Early Saddlemen Innovation
An early Saddlemen innovation, and a long standing steady seller has been our Comfy Saddle rear seat extenders.
Made with the same high-density, high-quality foam used in our famous seats, and covered with our standard leather-look marine grade vinyl, Comfy Saddles add comfort by extending the width of a passenger seat with two foam-filled pads suspended with a strap – simply slipping over the existing passenger seat. They are a great help for rear seat riders on long distance trips, and are a convenient alternative to touring seats.
We produce four models, in two cover styles: our clean, uncluttered “Cruiser” styling or “Desperado” styling with chrome plated studs; as well as a choice of adjustable and permanent “universal” average-width yokes, with eight inches between pads.

Our Comfort Pads Bring The Benefits Of SaddleGel To Any Motorcycle Seat

A state-of-the-art material, brought over from the medical industry, that will never freeze, crack, dry out, leak or melt, Saddlegel™ is designed to evenly distribute a rider’s weight across the full surface of the pad, eliminating annoying pressure points and “hot spots” for uncommon comfort. Our gel pads also provide excellent shock absorption and insulation from vibration. Saddlemen gel pads are available in a variety of cover types and sizes to fit most touring motorcycles, sport bikes, cruisers and even off-road bikes and ATVs.

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.
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.

Retailer Tries Our King Seat – Back Pain And Discomfort Left Behind
Dan Ludwig, owner of OneStopMoto.com sells lots of Saddlemen seats and luggage. After hearing all the positive comments about our saddles, he decided to give our King Seat a try on his Harley-Davidson to see if it would improve his riding experience.
Dan contacted us to let us know how the seat worked for him…
“I just installed a new Saddlemen King Seat with backrest on my 2001 Fat Boy. I have been shopping for a new seat for some time – because of back soreness after only an hour or so riding.”
“I heard a lot of hype about this seat, so I decided to give it a try, but not expecting too much. Well, I was pleasantly surprised.”
“After several hours of riding, I was trying to figure out why my back wasn’t sore. I noticed I was not sitting on my tail bone like most seats. I understand this is attributed to the unique “split-cushion” design of the King Seat. Keeping your weight off your tailbone is critical to keep the seat comfortable and your back in check, especially for long rides. Additionally, I adjusted the backrest significantly forward (yes, you can do this with the King Seat) which helped me maintain an upright sitting position, and allowed me to lean back and rest as I rode, without being way back on the bike. I believe this also helped to relieve back stress.”
“Bottom line is this. If you want a good looking seat with great lumbar support to relieve back pain, and a comfortable ride, this is the seat for you.”
We are always happy to hear such positive feedback. Our goal and design philosophy has always been to provide greater comfort and more enjoyable riding time for our customers. We know what our technology and craftsmanship can do, and it’s gratifying to see that our seats are helping the riding public improve their time on the road.
