No rest for Saddlemen's "road warrior" technical and sales expert, Gary Smith. The weekend after running our display in Reno, for Street Vibrations, this weekend finds him half a continent away at Pig Trail Harley-Davidson in Rogers, Arkansas, for the annual Bikes, Blues & BBQ gathering.

Our display will be with the Drag Specialties truck, run by one of our primary distributors.

Saddlemen items will be available for purchase inside Pig Trail Harley-Davidson, located at 2409 Hudson Road, in Rogers Arkansas. Their toll-free phone number is (877) 633-9797.

Gary is looking forward to meeting lots of riders, and enjoying the festivies.

Saddlemen has a commitment to meeting the motorcycling public, and providing them with quality information and advice about our products. Visits to local dealerships and motorsports stores are valuable opportunities to see how our luggage and seats are being used, and what riders want and need to improve their experiences.

Demonstrations Familiarize Sellers With Our Seat And Luggage Product Lines

Anaheim-show

Recently, Saddlemen's Jerry Beaty represented us at the Anaheim - Pala MX "Super Showcase" at the Astor Classics Event Center in Anaheim, California. Organized by two of the nation's largest motorsports products distributors, Drag Specialties and Parts Unlimited, the Super Showcase hosted about 30 manufacturers of a wide range of motorcycle parts and accessories, and gave us the opportunity to show our products to the people who get our seats and luggage out to the riding public.

Besides being a great opportunity to increase interest in Saddlemen products, it also lets us inform customer service professionals about the specifics of our seats and luggage, so they can better assist customers and potential buyers.

Jerry tells us there was excellent interest in the Saddlemen line, and that he was able to pass along lots of helpful information to sales representatives and store staff.

We at Saddlemen are proud to work with top-notch retailers and distributors across North America. We encourage the riding public to visit their local dealerships and motorsports stores to purchase Saddlemen motorcycle luggage and seats.
