Please visit our exhibit in the Racer Paddock Area and check out Saddlemen's Kevin Schwantz "Brand 34" Signature Chicane seat.
See you in the paddocks.
Saddlemen is pleased to announce the launch of the Kevin Schwantz Signature Seat for sportbikes. The Kevin Schwantz Signature Seat features Kevin’s world famous #34 as well as his signature embroidered on the seat.
“We are very thrilled to be working with Kevin, not only is he a great ambassador for the sport, he knows exactly what’s important when it comes to seating position on a motorcycle” says, Ron Benfield, Director of Sales and Marketing at Saddlemen, “Saddlemen will also partner with Kevin at his Schwantz Motorcycle Riding Schools, by fitting the school bikes with his signature seat.“
When Kevin retired from professional competition in 1995, the FIM felt the loss to the sport was so significant that they retired his signature competition number 34. It was the first time in the history of the sport that a rider had been so honored, and his number 34 continues to be one of the most recognized symbols in racing. “I am excited to work with Saddlemen on the development of this seat and more”, says Schwantz, “my students and racers to come will benefit from the relationship as we continue to develop hi tech sport bike seats.“
Saddlemen has been crafting seats for racing for nearly 20 years, starting in Flat Track and now for sport bikes and Road Racing. Its patented channel design has set the standard for performance and design. The Schwantz School was started in 2001 with the goal of making better, safer and more confident riders. The Schwantz School holds the honor of being the only track-based school to be recognized by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF). www.SchwantzSchool.com Available at your Parts Unlimited Dealer.

New Seat Models Combine Best Design And Features Of Saddlemen Product Line

The deep, wide contours of the saddle are mated with a new nose shape to create a long distance saddle that helps the rider touch the ground with confidence at stops.
Many G-TEC models are available with a matching driver’s backrest for superb lumbar support and riding comfort. Each seat is easy-to-install with all necessary mounting hardware and instructions included. All Saddlemen seats are proudly made in the U.S.A.
Available for the latest Harley Davidson Touring, Softail, Dyna and Sportster models; Honda Shadow Aeros and VTX1300's; Kawasaki Vulcan 900's; Suzuki C50 and M50 Boulevard's; and Yamaha XVS1300 V-Star Classics.

Avid Race Fans Join Saddlemen and Racing Legends at Laguna Seca MotoGP for Launch of Peter Starr’s Latest Motorcycle Tome
Many of the thousands of race fans attending the Laguna Seca MotoGP event on July 21st received a special treat as world road racing champions Kenny Roberts, Wayne Rainey and Eddie Lawson, plus flat track racing legend Gary Nixon joined famed film maker Peter Starr for the launch of Starr’s new Saddlemen-sponsored book “Taking It To The Limit – 20 Years Of Making Motorcycle Movies”.
Starr’s large coffee table book: “Taking it to The Limit – 20 Years Of Making Motorcycle Movies” is a rich collection of images and stories about filming the greatest names in motorcycle racing history. In addition to Roberts, Rainey, Nixon and Lawson the book documents Starr’s experience filming riders such as Roger DeCoster, Steve Baker, Mike Hailwood and many other legends.
A special book printing made copies available so the famed racers, and Starr himself, could autograph the high quality, color book for the excited fans. Remarked one fan; “Peter’s film was special as it focused upon the sport and racing as they moved from the seventies into the eighties. Motorcycles were evolving fast and the racers had to be pretty skilled to keep those bikes under control. Peter captured their exploits on film and we can now learn more about those times with his book!”
Saddlemen’s role, as a presenting sponsor of the book, was a natural continuation of the support provided to racers of all disciplines. Universally recognized as one of the nation’s strongest supporters of flat track racing; Saddlemen President Tom Seymour is pressing forward with a higher level of support in the road race arena to help showcase the company’s new Sportbike seat and accessory offerings.
Accompanying the book is a DVD featuring special outtakes from several of Starr’s award-winning films including his best known movie, “Take It To The Limit.” Also on the DVD is a special greeting from Seymour in which he provides a fascinating look at the engineering and processes behind the country’s premier motorcycle seat, luggage and accessory manufacturer.
The iconic “Take It To The Limit” film was recently made available in DVD format. Starr’s book will be available for order from Saddlemen in the near future. Check back at www.saddlemen.com in the coming weeks for additional information about the book’s availability and for additional racing and enthusiast news.
