Our thanks go out to our excellent hosts, the owners and staff at Carson City Harley-Davidson, and as always to the people who run the Drag Specialties truck throughout the year, and the other vendor representatives.

Black-Hills-Event-Tents-2010

JP-Event-Combo-2010

As a last mention of our great experience at this year's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, we want to express our thanks to the ownership and staff at the great shops that hosted or displays - both J & P Cycles in Sturgis, and close by at Rapid City's Black Hills Harley-Davidson.

Drag-Personnel-Black-Hills-2010

Saddlemen's experts on hand in Rapid City, Gary Smith and Jerry Beaty at Black Hills Harley-Davidson, got great support from the staff affiliated with the Drag Specialties display. Among them, (from left to right) Gary Ellis, their truck driver extraordinaire, Mike Faulkner, Regional Sales Manager, Adam Nystrom, sales representative for North Dakota, and Earl "Sy" Seiler, Drag Specialties Representative for southeast Michigan.

Jay-Brainard.

Good neighbors are truly appreciated, and right next to our booth in the Drag Specialties tent at Black Hills Harley-Davidson were the good folks from Jaybrake, including Jay Brainard himself, at left.

Again, our thanks go out the staff and ownership at both Black Hills Harley-Davidson, and to the Sturgis location of J & P Cycles. It was another great rally this year... "Keep 'em coming!"

We'll be looking forward to being at Sturgis again next year, answering questions and proudly showing what our expertise and technology can do to make riding more enjoyable. We hope to see you there!

Seat And Luggage Demo Draws Enthusiastic Interest From River Run Attendees

Saddlemen at Pioneer Lot in Laughlin

This year’s Laughlin River Run in Nevada, proved to be a great opportunity to show off the Saddlemen product line to the riding public. 2010 was the 28th annual River Run, or as it called in the “fine print,” the American Motorcycle Association Southwest Regional Road Riding Convention. We set up our display booth right outside of the popular Pioneer Hotel, where we kept busy talking to a constant stream of visitors.

Saddlemen Demo at Laughlin by Greg Friend

“Sunglass City!” (Above) Our marketing director, Greg Friend, at left, demonstrates the wide range of features built in to our “SaddleStow” sissy bar and back seat bags. We also brought along examples of our innovative saddlebags and our famous motorcycle seats for product presentations to the public.

Saddlemen Laughlin Display

Seats, saddlebags and luggage… at Saddlemen we are proud to show what our expertise, craftsmanship and technology can do to make riding better. Whether at major motorcycle related events like the Laughlin River Run, or at product demonstrations at local motorsports retailers, we have knowledgeable representatives touring across country throughout the year.

This year, we will be running a demonstration booth at the Laughlin River Run from April 22nd through the 25th outside of the popular Pioneer Hotel at 2200 South Casino Drive.

Our booth will focus on product information and advice for riders interested in our seats and luggage. We will not be taking product to sell, but we will be able to handle sales that will then ship from our factory. Feel free to ask our staff at the booth about what we can do.

Our Commitment To Direct Contact With The Riding Public Continues: Saddlemen Demo and Show Appearances

Since the founding of our company, Saddlemen has consistently made appearances 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 2010, our reps will be 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 be well represented at Drag Specialties displays, and will be looking forward to answering questions and proudly showing what our expertise and technology can do to make riding more enjoyable.
