Good, Better, Best… MUSTANG! Upgrading The World’s Best Touring Bike

22 Oct

FB_Cover_F6BRemember the old “good, better, best” approach? It works great for household appliances like toaster ovens and dishwashers, but it begs the question “what is better than best” in the motorcycle world? People tend to have higher expectations for their motorcycle than they do of their toasters!

According to Honda, the new Gold Wing F6B takes the world’s best touring motorcycle, the Gold Wing, and makes it that much better. The new F6B is lighter, trimmer and leaner than the old ‘Wing. It takes the “good” features of the Wing and makes them a good deal better, starting with plenty of storage and upgraded performance. However we have found one area where better than best is available : The Seat!

Not saying the stock seat is bad, but Mustang’s all new Tripper Fastback is better by design. The 17″ wide front seat sits the rider about 1″ lower than stock for maximum control of the bike while stopped. With the Tripper-style seat, the rider is also positioned further back “into the bike” rather than perched on top, while the notch in the stepped seat offers a full 8″ of all-day back support.

Even better than the Tripper Fastback saddle from Mustang is our Tripper Fastback Deluxe model. The “Deluxe” version offers a Tuck and Roll pattern in the center panel for a “better than best” upgrade for the F6B. High style combined with luxurious comfort sounded like a good mix to our product design team, so the all new Tripper Fastback Deluxe was patterned after classic high-performance Mustang designs and intended to complement the luxurious feel of the F6B.

Adding to the comfort is the pillion portion of the saddle. The passenger seat is 14″ wide and is contoured to take pressure off the co-pilot’s thighs, so you and your passenger can now enjoy outstanding comfort and longer rides together. Both the standard and Deluxe Tripper Fastbacks are designed to work with or without the stock passenger backrest.

Don’t worry about “good, better. best” — cut to the chase and get the better than best option: Mustang!

CCAs the motorcycle rally season has hit high gear this summer, Cruiser Customizing Inc. has been busy serving up related buyer’s guides. These buying guides outline the most popular motorcycle parts and accessories for customizing your Harley, Metric Cruiser or Gold Wing, along with tips on how to install key components and get the look you want.

Made in the USA and in the business for more than 30 years, it’s only natural that Mustang Seats would be one of the first brands to garner a top spot in the Cruiser Customizing Buying Guide section. With riders across the country gearing up for their summer adventures, Mustang offers motorcyclists a wide gamut of seats that are ideal for the long haul. Ultimately, “It’s All About the Ride!” as we like to say around here and bikers are looking for ways to increase comfort and function on the road, while still looking cool.

Cruiser Customizing Inc. (CC) is an e-commerce website that has been in the motorcycle business for 12 years now. Its main focus is aftermarket customization — that is to say, what happens when you ride your bike off the dealership lot, and really begin to infuse your own style and standard of comfort. CC helps motorcyclists treat their baby right, and create the ultimate machine for any biker who wants to upgrade and style their OEM parts.

Mustang Seats has made this easier than ever — take the built-in, removable driver backrest, for example. This style of seat allows motorcyclists to choose their riding style each time they mount their bike. It’s also adjustable, and allows for full back support, no matter where your destination lies. CC highlights these key specs to give bikers smart buying options, and get the best experience possible on the road.

As you may know, Mustang Seats recently teamed up with Roland Sands Design (RSD) to manufacture aftermarket seats. Watch CC’s visit with Roland Sands himself, as they discuss why Mustang was the best option for his personal designs. Also featured in the guide is a step-by-step video that shows the production of a seat in our Massachusetts factory, a quick recap of all the new changes for 2013, and hints at an exciting new program that will allow bikers to customize their seat before it even hits the production line.
