Ailing Rider Gets Another Custom Saddlemen Seat For A Second Bagger

Last year, we had the chance to build a seat for Rick H. of Riverside, California. The aim was to help get Rick back riding comfortably and confidently while healing up from a severe tailbone injury. Our customer service staff and seat builders worked with him to construct an “Explorer” design saddle to meet his needs.

Rick got back to us within days, letting us know the seat worked great… “It is perfect!”

Recently, we were pleased to be able to make another Explorer seat for him, this time for his great looking red Road King Custom. This time we covered the seat with tan colored Saddlehyde, with the eye-catching results seen in the photos Rick sent to us.

“Not only does it look incredible, it is very very comfortable,” Rick tells us.

“Thanks again for the personal attention.”

Saddlemen Feedback and Testimonials

 

Our External Gel Pads Provide Proven Relief, Reduce Vibrations, Absorbs Shock, And Relieve Seating Pressure Points

Is the seat on that new holiday gift motorcycle uncomfortable? Does the seat on your “old reliable” have you continually stopping for relief during long rides? Consider our Saddlemen gel pads.

Saddlemen Comfort Gel Pads

Saddlegel™ Comfort Pads make any motorcycle seat into a touring seat. A state-of-the-art material, brought over from the medical industry, that will never freeze, crack, dry out, leak or melt, Saddlegel™ is designed to evenly distribute a rider’s weight across the full surface of the pad, eliminating annoying pressure points and “hot spots” for uncommon comfort. Our gel pads also provide excellent shock absorption and insulation from vibration. Saddlemen™ gel pads are available in a variety of cover types and sizes to fit most touring motorcycles, sport bikes, cruisers and even off-road bikes and ATVs.

Saddlemen gel pads come in four varieties: our Original Advanced Comfort Seat Pads, comfortable Advanced Comfort Fleece Covered Seat Pads, our recently added Tech Memory Foam Seat Pads, and our popular Pillow Seat Pads style. Each type is available in three standard sizes.

The easiest way to get the comfort benefits of Saddlegel™ technology is to strap one of our pads onto your existing seat. Your ride will be much nicer, so you can spend more time on your bike. These gel pads are proven by tens of thousands of satisfied motorcycle and other powersport riders worldwide for decades!

Product Testing With Saddlemen Rider/Employees

Saddlemen - Jerry Beaty and Harley-Davidson FLH

Saddlemen’s Jerry Beaty, an avid long-distance rider, with his trusty Harley-Davidson FLH – a frequent testbed for potential products and upgrades.

Saddlemen was founded by riders, and has many enthusiastic motorcyclists on staff. This has been an excellent resource over the years, especially in product development.

Whether testing new concepts in seat design, trying out new cover materials, conducting routine quality control checks on foam and SaddleGel formulations, or “torture testing” luggage lines before they enter production, we have continually benefited by having riders involved in all stages of research and development.

Nothing beats getting the immediate, experienced feedback of a veteran motorcyclist after a full weekend on the road with a new bag, or weeks of daily use with a potential seat upgrade. Our philosophy of “for riders, by riders” has served us, and our customers well ever since we went into business.

One Size Does Not Fit All… Saddlemen’s Years Of Customizing Experience – Ready To Optimize Your Ride

Saddlemen Custom Seat Work

At Saddlemen we pride ourselves on our experience and ability to custom fit our seats (especially our touring saddles) for the needs of the widest variety of riders. Height, weight, build, riding style and habits can all influence the effectiveness and comfort of a seat. Our sales staff and craftsmen know the right questions to ask, and the answers for providing the best solutions for each individual.

Our standard American-made production run seats are hand-built and designed for comfort and optimal seating position, with years experience behind them, and Saddlemen’s innovative combination of proven materials. Like even the best made piece of clothing, tailoring sometimes is needed to suit the individual “wearer,” or can make a “good” seating setup just about perfect.

Adjustments can be made to improve many aspects of the riding experience. The forward area of a seat can be narrowed to help provide better leg reach to the ground when stopped. Lumbar supports can be adjusted to improve the rider’s seating position, front-to-rear. The shape of the seating surface can be customized to relieve sources of discomfort. Over many years, our staff has found solutions for all kinds of individual issues.

Potential buyers with concerns about comfort, seating position and styling can contact our knowledgeable sales staff at our California offices and factory. A brief conversation can answer many questions, and provide a basis for creating a seat for the best ride possible. We can also discuss options for cover materials, stitching and ornamentation.

Our experienced Sales Department representatives can be reached during normal Pacific time zone business hours at (800) 397-7709.

Satisfied Saddlemen Customers Share Their Experiences With Our Seats and Luggage

“We have installed Saddlemen Gel Seats on all of our bikes for many years. When we got the Wing, we went for a ride and Sue tapped me on the shoulder and asked me if the bike had a gel seat (which it didn’t). She could tell the difference.

She then asked me (in a very pointed way), ‘When would we get one?’

‘As soon as I can call Saddlemen,’ I replied. I did, and now she’s happy.”
