Military Focused Retailer Features Saddlemen Products In Special Promotion
Our friends at online retailer Black Hawk Customs are promoting Saddlemen products this month. We recently posted images of their tough looking company truck, complete with camouflage patterning, “guns,” and our logo.
We’re glad to know that businesses like Black Hawk Customs are out there, providing our nation’s service members worldwide with efficient and convenient (as possible) sources for powersport products, whether for recreation or daily use.
Pig Trail Harley-Davidson Hosts Display During Massive Gathering Of Riders
Saddlemen’s Director of Sales, Stan Alicki visited Pig Trail Harley-Davidson in Rogers, Arkansas in conjunction with the gigantic Bikes, Blues & BBQ event held in the Fayetteville/Rogers area from September 23rd through the 26th. We got the chance to have a featured display at Pig Trail Harley-Davidson, while literally hundreds of thousands of riders converged on the area.
Stan got the opportunity to match up numerous riders with Saddlemen gear, and meet and greet the motorcycling public that converged on the area for the big festivities.
We at Saddlemen were glad we could be there to enjoy the festivities along with demonstrating and selling lots of our luggage, and want to thank the fine folks at Pig Trail Harley Davidson for their hospitality and support.
And even as we “ride off into the sunset” we’ll continue to be out across the country all through the year. Most often, we’ll be affiliated with a Drag Specialties display, and will always be looking forward to answering questions and proudly showing what our expertise and technology can do to make riding more enjoyable.
Saddlemen Retailer Salutes Our Military With Eye-Catching Truck
Black Hawk Customs, an online retailer that focuses on providing motorsport accessories, parts and apparel to members of the armed services, just unleashed this military-themed company truck out onto the roads. A number of the company’s big sellers are featured on the tailgate, and we are proud to say Saddlemen is one.
James Campbell, the CEO of Black Hawk Customs told us, “The wrap is perfectly done by Kaieos here in San Jose, California. Keith Vu was great to work with and put in way too many hours into the design. He took our idea of a Powersport themed military design and came up with a vehicle wrap that will blow our competition away… especially with our door gunners!”
James tells us that Saddlemen items are big sellers at Black Hawk, and we are pleased to know that our products are being enjoyed by the hard-working, brave and sacrificing people protecting our nation.
Appleton Harley-Davidson/Buell Hosts Special Saddlemen Event
Recently, our traveling technical and sales “guru,” Gary Smith, visited Appleton HD in Clarksville, Tennessee for a special open house event. Gary got the chance to meet a wide variety of riders, show off our products, and almost literally sold a truckload of Saddlemen gear.
Gary would like to thank the people at Appleton Harley-Davidson for hosting a really successful event, and also Drag Specialties representatives James McGlynn and Mike Goggins (seen above on their bikes), for their top-notch support and coordination. Above right, are Matt and Tammy Silva, just a couple of the great folks he got to meet in the Nashville-Clarksville area. Saddlemen is proud to show the riding public our products at events across the nation. We’ll likely be at a dealership in your region soon…
We Are There To Celebrate The Big Illinois Dealership’s Eighth Anniversary
Saddlemen’s Gary Smith visited Chi-Town Harley-Davidson in Tinley Park, Illinois for their August 15th Eighth Birthday Party. Shown above, left to right, are Jeff Derge, Regional Sales Manager for Drag Specialties; George Tragos, owner and president of Chi-Town HD; Mark Hiel of Drag Specialties; and our own Gary Smith.
The Chicago spirit is definately strong at Chi-Town Harley-Davidson. Above the main entrance The Blues Brothers are quite prominent. We’re wondering if that bike is officially a Blues Bagger?
We at Saddlemen were glad we could be there to enjoy the festivities along with demonstrating and selling lots of our luggage, and want pass along our congratulations, thanks, and best wishes for the future to everyone at Chi-Town Harley-Davidson.
We’ll continue to be out across the country all through the year. Most often, we’ll be affiliated with a Drag Specialties display, and will always be looking forward to answering questions and proudly showing what our expertise and technology can do to make riding more enjoyable.
The Illinois State H.O.G. Rally offered us a great opportunity to meet the public, and show our motorcycle luggage, saddlebags, and of course, our seats. Saddlemen was represented at the Drag Specialties display, based during the rally at Hall’s Harley-Davidson, in Springfield. Our Director of Sales, Stan Alicki, was able to work with the knowledgeable Drag Specialties representatives, and help quite a few riders chose the best luggage and seats for their needs, and provide technical and installation assistance. The booth staff included, as pictured above, Todd, Drag Specialties Sales Representative; Mike, Drag Specialties’ Inside Sales Manager; Saddlemen’s Stan; and Johnny,Memphis Shades’ Sales Manager.
Saddlemen Representatives’ 2009 Demo and Show Appearances
For years, Saddlemen has vigorously gone out across the country to show riders why we are proud of our seats and luggage, and to help potential customers learn about our high-quality products and make the best choice for their needs when purchasing from the Saddlemen line.
Some years, we’ve run our own displays, and other years we’ve also teamed up with our primary distributors, Drag Specialties and Parts Unlimited, to show our seats, saddlebags and other luggage to the riding public. In 2009, our reps have been out nationwide – at rallies, consumer shows, dealer open houses and trade shows, demonstrating the quality of our products, and the finer points for making the right choice when buying Saddlemen.
We’ll continue to be out across the country all through the year. We’ll be there at the Drag Specialties display, and will be looking forward to answering questions and proudly showing what our expertise and technology can do to make riding more enjoyable.
