A Great Time At "Heritage Harley Day"

Heritage HD Customers

This past Saturday, June 11th, our "road warrior" product expert, Gary Smith, was on hand at Heritage Harley-Davidson, with the traveling Drag Specialties display truck. Gary got to meet and show off Saddlemen gear to lots of area riders. At left is Bill Thorn, owner of a new BR1800 back seat and sissy bar bag, pictured with friend David Weller.


During his years on the front lines of customer service, Gary has assisted thousands of Saddlemen owners with installation and usage questions. His words of wisdom can help avoid problems and supply hints for getting the most out of our gear. For example, with our Back Seat & Sissy Bar Bags, like shown here, Gary has a couple of recommendations, "When installing any of our bags, always be sure to keep the mounting straps clear of the exhaust and wheels. Also, on the mounting straps for the sissy bar bags - they do not have to be pulled REALLY tight. It's best to leave a little slack in the strap."


Our thanks go out to our hosts at Lisle, Illinois' Heritage Harley-Davidson for putting on a great event.


Heritage Harley Davidson

Watch for Saddlemen appearances at rallies and bike shop events across the country, throughout the year. We believe the first hand product demonstrations and customer feedback we get from the riding public at events like "Heritage Harley Day" are an amazing resource, and an opportunity to "read the pulse" of the community we gear the Saddlemen line to serve.
