Building the best motorcycle seats in the world can be exhausting, what with all the responsibilities that entails. But that’s just part of the job description here at Mustang Motorcycle Seats. When we work, we work hard.

Ah, but when we play, we squeeze every ounce of satisfaction out of the events that are planned for us down to the finest detail by our company’s “Supervisors of Fun.”

Take our recent company picnic, for example. We didn’t just head out to the nearest city park with a volleyball net and a Weber grill. No, siree. This year’s annual company picnic was held at Six Flags New England, a water park and amusement park located in Agawam, Mass.

We had 165 employees and their family members show up for a sweltering day of riding roller coasters, careening down water slides and then careening down water slides again.

We had our own lunch pavilion where everybody gathered for a meal, compared notes on the morning’s activities and plotted the fun for the rest of the afternoon. Sort of a funfest headquarters is what it was. Six Flags fitted us out with privacy, welcome shade and plenty of ceiling fans.

The menu was typical picnic fare – hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken and all the side dishes you could possibly want. The beverage counter and ice cream freezer were the go-to destinations for employees and their families.

On the way home, it was decided that a good time was had by all!

After lunch it was back to the swimming pool and water rides — a welcome respite from the hectic amusement park with its whirling rides, food vendors, game barkers, musical acts, roaming Looney Tunes characters and shrieks coming from the thrill rides.

Most enjoyable was meeting and socializing with co-workers and their family members. It was also a great opportunity for the Connecticut employees to get together with the Massachusetts employees in a casual setting. Folks were able to put faces to names and voices that they often speak to daily over the phone. Didn’t hear a lot of shoptalk going on, with employees very much preferring chitchatting with friends and watching the kids play.

We can talk motorcycle seats on Monday.
