Ready to Hit the Road

31 Mar

If you’ve ever been to one of the major North American motorcycle rallies (think Sturgis, Daytona Bike Week, or Laconia Bike Week), you know that our little New England-based company can be found alongside the major motorcycle industry brands, displaying and installing our wares from sunup to sundown. What you may not have known, however, is that we do not limit ourselves to just the big three motorcycle rallies. On the contrary, you’re just as likely to find the Mustang Motorcycle Seats big rig at one of the smaller, more intimate shows as well.

Case in point, over the next four months, you’ll find us at a bevy of events, including:

April 22-29, 2010
Laughlin River Run
Laughlin, Nevada

April 30 – May 3
Thunder Beach Spring 2010
Panama City, Florida

May 7 – 16
Myrtle Beach Spring Bike Week
North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

June 7 – 12
Americade
Lake George, New York

June 12 – 20
Laconia Bike Week
Meredith, New Hampshire

June 26 – 27
J&P Cycles Open House
Anamosa, Iowa

July 23 – 25
Carlisle Bike Fest
Carlisle, Pennsylvania

As you can see, from Nevada to Florida and many interesting points in between, we’re not resting until we crisscross the country and meet with as many of our customers and fans as we can. Once you’re at a rally where we set up shop, you can stop by the Mustang Factory Tent or Road Show Truck to try on different seat styles and see and feel the Mustang difference for yourself. Our on-site seat experts will install your new Mustang seat for FREE and we’ll even ship your stock seat back home for free anywhere in the lower 48 states.

What are you waiting for? Click on a link above for the rally or event closest to your home, and make plans now to see us in person!

Where to Buy a Mustang Motorcycle Seat

23 Mar

Lots of folks call our office to ask where the best place is to buy Mustang Motorcycle Seats. While it’d be easy to tell everyone that our seats can be purchased over the phone or from our website, we have such an excellent group of authorized dealers that the answer just depends on where you are:

Your Local Dealer: Mustang Motorcycle Seats are sold worldwide through thousands of franchised motorcycle dealers and accessory shops. While most dealers will be happy to order a particular seat for you, many may already have a variety of Mustang Seats in stock that you can chose from.  (The seats on display at Jim’s Cycle in Axtell, TX, apparently doubles as a cozy nursery for their employee Eric’s baby.) Check with your local dealer or motorcycle shop first, where you benefit from the collective wisdom of local pros who work hard day in and day to earn and keep your business.

Bike Rallies: The Mustang truck and road crew attend over a dozen shows and rallies across the USA every year (click here for a complete list of upcoming shows we’re participating in). Ride your bike up to our huge display and let our factory-trained reps show you the different styles of seats right on your own bike. FYI: Free installation and shipping of your stock seat to your home address in the lower 48 states is available when you purchase a Mustang Seat from us at a rally or show.

Anywhere Online: Many of our authorized dealers and shops have websites that allow you to track down and purchase the ideal Mustang Seat for your bike. A simple Google search for mustang motorcycle seat reveals hundreds of online options to choose from.

Home in your Pajamas: Cuddle up with a good book about comfort… request your free 100+ page Mustang Motorcycle Seat catalog by calling 800-243-1392 or visiting the Motorcycle Seat Catalog page on MustangSeats.com, where we offer mounting suggestions, customer reviews, as well as answers to frequently asked questions about our seats and motorcycle seat fitment.

As you can see, purchasing a Mustang Motorcycle Seat (all of which are made right here in the USA) has never been easier.

Take a Seat and Enjoy the Ride

13 Mar

Welcome to the Mustang Motorcycle Seats Blog. As anyone who has taken a spin around the Internet will tell you, blogs such as this one give companies like ours an opportunity to share news and information in ways that weren’t even imagined yet when Al Simmons started Mustang Motorcycle Products, Inc. in 1980.

Back in the day, if you wanted to get the word out about something your company or business was up to, you had one of three choices: issue a press release, pay for an advertisement, or publish your own newsletter and mail it out to everyone you knew. Since we’ve always chosen to focus first and foremost on making the highest quality, most comfortable motorcycle seats in the world, we tended to shy away from tootin’ our own horn or becoming distracted by things that don’t help you — our customers — have a more comfortable ride.

That same philosophy is what we had in mind when we decided to launch our own blog. Here, you can expect to read about things that truly matter, including:

  • Product announcements
  • Installation tips
  • Special offers
  • Show and rally info
  • Changes to our website
  • And much more

Along the way, we’ll be introducing you to some of the people who make Mustang what it is today, as well as calling attention to industry news and information we think you might want to know about.

Each blog entry, including today’s, has a feature that allows you to join in on the conversation. Any time the mood strikes, click the “Comments” link (located below each blog entry) to weigh in on the topic of the day or see what your fellow Mustang enthusiasts have to say. In the meantime, as the title of today’s blog post says, take a seat and enjoy the ride!
