Mustang Has The Best Seat In The House For IMS Tour

30 Oct

IMS Portland CoverPortlandia? The 2016 Progressive International Motorcycle Show (IMS) series — the largest motorcycle show series in the world — kicks of this weekend with a new venue in Portland, Oregon. Mustang rolls into the shows with some surprises starting this Halloween weekend. We will be treating people in Portland to the finest seats in the house. No tricks, just treating folks to the most comfortable motorcycle seats they have ever experienced.

To facilitate even more experiences, a couple of new “seat-horses” (think saw horses for motorcycle seats) have been incorporated into the display. Not only does this give a rider a better feel for the seat, but we have even positioned some foot pegs on the seat horses so that a passenger can feel the difference when riding two-up. IMS show-goers should look for the brand new Mustang kiosk in the Marketplace section.

Featured at each stop on the IMS Tour, the Marketplace is an interactive retail space for motorcycle parts and accessories. This unique show-within-a-show offers attendees the opportunity to touch, test and/or try the newest top parts, accessories and gear while interacting with factory specialists from leading manufacturers.

Mustang’s Rally director John Glynn will be on hand for the weekend to work the display. “We think it is important to have factory trained experts on hand to explain the Mustang difference,” says Glynn. “There is more to a seat than meets the eye!”

One year after Mustang celebrated its 35th anniversary, the IMS tour kicks off its own 35th edition of the largest motorcycle shows in the country. Spanning 10 cities and stretching from October 2015 to the final stop in Phoenix on February 20-21, 2016, Mustang will be at every venue this season to show off what a difference comfort makes.

Getting Caught In The Spyder’s Web

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 3.43.22 PMDid you know that more than 100,000 Can-Am Spyders have hit the highways and byways of North America in the past seven years? If you didn’t realize there were that many Spyders out there, you probably didn’t catch the fact that Mustang now has replacement seats for the interesting three-wheeled machines either. However if you are one of the growing legion of fans who have been caught in the Spyder’s web, we invite you to discover the Mustang difference!

Can-Am-Spyder-F3-S-Sturgis-Looking like a cross between a snow machine and a touring bike, the Spyder is creating a new niche for itself. According to our friends at BRP/Can-Am, the majority of the Spyders out there are being used for long-distance rides and touring. We saw plenty of them headed to Sturgis this year and Can-Am even had the “Spyder Experience” area downtown just off Lazelle Street so folks who were at the Black Hills classic could see what they have been missing.

Can-Am says that when you ride a Spyder “the destination becomes the ride itself; a one-of-kind experience in open-air riding.” We like the way they think! In fact, we would like to further enhance this unique riding experience with a new seat made specifically for the Spyder RT touring model.

MMP15_PR-Spyder-FloaterAdd to your Spyder’s comfort and character with Mustang’s touring seat designed specifically for the RT model. The new seat’s detailed gun metal stitching and carbon fiber vinyl accents enhance the Spyder’s striking design, while retaining all the positive features of the stock seat. Looking good is only part of the overall experience, though. Since form follows function, it is what is inside the striking seat cover that counts.

76196_72Mustang’s marine-grade baseplate and proprietary foam are carefully contoured to support both rider and passenger in the optimal cruising angle for all-day riding. The 16.5″ seat width (passenger width: 17.5″) is based on Mustang’s 35-years of expertise in designing touring saddles.

Spyder BackrestComplete the custom look and enhance comfort with matching backrests. The fully-adjustable driver backrest features an 11″ wide pad that tapers to 7″ at the base. This provides solid back support for the longest rides. Since touring is more fun two-up, make sure to get Mustang’s trunk-mounted passenger backrest for the Spyder RT.

The destination may be the ride, but the overall experience is even better when the pilot and the passenger are comfortable! Discover the Mustang difference and enhance your riding comfort! Get more details at the Mustang Seats website:
