The snow has finally melted, even in Three Rivers, MA, and it is riding time again… FINALLY! Although we had some diehards like our new Art Director Joe riding into work despite the sub-zero temps this winter, spring has finally sprung for the rest of us at Mustang. Now it is time for spring cleaning which is why we are happy to announce that we are once again carrying S100® Cycle Care products.

Art Director Joe Kardos put S100 products to the test by riding his bike in to work this Spring.

We have always used S100 cleaning products to keep our personal bikes sitting pretty. Sure, it helps that they are fellow New Englanders (they are based in nearby Branford, CT), but we have used the products since 1985 because they really work! Even Harley-Davidson® dealers carry S100 because it works so well.

From the original S100 Total Cycle Cleaner in 1 liter deluxe kits, refills and aerosol cans to S100 Polishing Soap/Drying Towel, all the way up to the new S100 Special Surfaces Cleaner, everything you need for a comprehensive spring cleaning is now available from Mustang. Even the complete S100 Cycle Care Gift Sets are in stock for serious spring cleaning. These sets include five of the best S100 products, including 500ml of Total Cycle Cleaner, S100 Drying Towel, S100 Finish Restorer, S100 Corrosion Protectant, S100 Detail+Wax and sponge, all packed in a handy, clear acrylic carry case.

Don’t just take our word for it, though. When S100 Total Cycle Cleaner arrived in 1985, it completely changed the way bikes get washed and created an overnight sensation. Rider Magazine hailed it as a “…revolution for the Saturday Morning Wash.” Cycle Magazine said: “Nothing we have tried cuts through road grime quicker or more thoroughly…” In 1986, the Harley-Davidson® Motor Company picked up S100 and began using it at their factory and test track and then decided it was important enough to supply to their dealers… Today they still do! S100 Total Cycle Cleaner is available in both aerosol and liquid form and comes is a variety of sizes, all the way up to a handy 5 liter (1.32 US gal.) canister.

gene autryMost of you are probably too young to remember Gene Autry as more than the former owner of the California Angels Baseball Club. However, there was a time when “The Signing Cowboy” had hit records and was a bonafide Hollywood movie star. His signature song was “Back In The Saddle Again” — so with a tip of the Stetson to Mr. Autry, Mustang is happy to announce we are back in the saddle again for the 2014 Rally season.

The big news is our return to Americade this summer. After kicking off with Bike Week in Daytona, the Mustang big rig is currently criss-crossing the country. From Arizona Bike Week to Sturgis and Laconia and back to Daytona for Bikertoberfest in the fall, our Rallymeister John Glynn will be hitting all the big events as well as making detours for dealer events and other last-minute additions to the schedule.

BlkTruckObviously we can’t be at every single event this summer… but that didn’t stop us from trying to schedule as many as we possibly could. Because we believe the best way to introduce new products is face-to-face at the rallies, it is important for Mustang to “ride the range” all summer long. We have some new saddles to show off, starting with the Dave Perewitz Signature Series coming for our friends who are partial to Harley FLs… or ‘Baggahs’ as Dave calls them.

There are also seats for another OEM coming that are a departure from our normal offerings. We can’t tell you who they are yet, but their initials are B.M.W. — stay tuned for more details! In the meantime, don’t forget that Mustang offers free installation at all the rallies and we even ship your old seat back for you. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Happy Trails To You… oops, wrong cowboy crooner. See Mustang’s entire 2014 rally schedule here:
