Ultimate Motorcycle Safety Guide

We love the tons of testimonials we get from happy customers — internally we call them “brand ambassadors” when we share the fan mail and photos of bikes with new Mustang seats in place. We also sincerely appreciate the critiques and criticisms that come in as well. Believe it or not, we get more excited about ways to improve our seats and customer service than we get about all the “attaboys.”

Motorcycle-Safety-Leather-Pants-151Suffice to say, we pay attention to all the correspondence that comes our way via letters, phones calls or increasingly social media. However sometimes something comes in over the transom that needs to be shared with more than Mustang staff. Recently we received this nice note from Mike along with a link to his “Ultimate Motorcycle Safety Guide For New Riders.” Here is what he had to say:

“I’ve been following Mustang’s Motorcycle Seat Blog for a while now, and I just wanted to tell you what a great job you do. I really enjoyed that post about the Laconia Motorcycle Week… Your tapered Tripper Fastback seat did great things for your CVO Breakout!

Recently, I created a guide on motorcycle safety, and I thought it might interest you.

Feel free to share this on your blog or social media, I’m sure your followers would love to see this!

Also, if there’s anything I’m missing, please let me know so I can add it to my guide.”

Motorcycle-Safety-TipsThank you Mike! And for the rest of our Mustang Brand Ambassadors, do yourself a favor and check out the Ultimate Motorcycle Safety Guide. Even experienced riders can use an occasional motorcycle safety reminder and Mike really does want to know what can be added to make this piece more informative. In the meantime, keep those cards and letters coming!

DOES THIS FAT REAR TIRE MAKE MY SEAT LOOK BIG?

Mustang Breaks Out Seats For The FXSB Softail Breakout® At Laconia

HistoricCelebrating 91 years of history in 2014, Laconia Motorcycle Week is the granddaddy of all motorcycle rallies and Mustang’s home turf, so we had to do something special for the occasion. We decided to break out comfort for one of the hottest Harley’s around at Laconia and introduced a brand new seat specifically for the 2013-14 Harley-Davidson® FXSB Softail. Fans of the fat-tired CVO Breakout® were treated to the first look at these seats at Mustang’s big rig. Special shout-out to our friends at Laconia H-D in Meredith, NH for hosting this big deal for us during the mid-June festivities.

MMP14_LB_Breakout-v1Rally-goers had the first look at two versions of our Tripper Fastback™ seat, and consensus was that the tapered Fastback made the really accentuated wide-tire look of the Breakout. Although both seats offer a 13” front width for the driver and a 7” wide rear, the big difference is the addition of a Tuck and Roll option. Style and comfort combined into one eye-catching, super clean seat that is particularly well suited for the lines of the Breakout.

HDShopThe low cut Tripper Fastback is more than just another pretty face… um, seat. It offers good back support and places the rider a little closer to the ground. Although the seat is tapered in back, it still offers a reasonable degree of passenger comfort as well.

If your Summer Vacation didn’t start in time for you to make it to Laconia to see the new seats in person, we invite you to check it out at:
