Mustang Seats for Can-Am Spyder F3

by Editor on 01/27/16

Mustang's newest addition to its impressive line of comfortable motorcycle seats lets Can-Am Spyder F3 riders feel the Mustang difference. The new one-piece touring seat for the F3 offers improvements over the stock seat and enhances the Spyder's powerful modern look.
 
"Our seats for the Spyder RT have proven popular with riders, so the F3 was the next logical step'" says Mustang Seats Sales Manager Jesse Sargent. "Can-Am calls the F3 the 'next era' of Spyders and we've developed this seat with the same thinking. Every angle, contour and radius of the seat has been fine-tuned for maximum comfort,"Sargent explains.

"Mustang's seat is optimized for riders and passengers who like riding all day" says Sargent. "It positions your body for the best riding posture and supports you for the long haul. Today's riders don't want to compromise either comfort or style - this seat has both of these covered."
 
The cover's detailed double-stitching boldly enhances the Spyder F3's striking design. Mustang's marine-grade fiberglass baseplate and proprietary foam are carefully contoured to support both rider and passenger in the optimal cruising angle for all-day riding. The optional driver backrest is fully adjustable, easily removable and perfectly matches the look of the seat. "This new Mustang seat for the F3 makes an already great machine even better!” concludes Jesse.

Motorcycle riding videos: Interactive Map

by Editor on 12/04/15

Escape Parked Motorcycle Syndrome with VRIDETV....
We know there's a lot of people out there that have had to park their bikes until Spring...

We asked the question: Would you like us to post some motorcycle riding videos 30 to 60 minutes long, with no editing, no music, just the sounds of the wind in your face and the motorcycle's engine and exhaust?
The response was overwhelmingly YES : )

Wanna see a video? It's easy, just click on the map : )

We're building interactive map below using Google Maps. Click on a red marker and a video of that exact area opens up showing you exactly what it's like to ride that road.
To help everyone get through the winter we're going to be adding a 
new video every week until Spring, so turn on a space heater and fan in front of your monitor, pick a destination, push play and you're virtually riding....

Fox Creek Leather vest

by Editor on 11/30/15

leather vest

This V-Neck Rebel Vest from Fox Creek Leather is by far the best vest I've ever worn.

The leather they use is outstanding as is the fit, finish and their attention to detail! This is a ruggedly built vest with stitching that will take anything you can throw at it, The leather they use is exceptional and when you feel it in your hands you know it! Having the hidden snaps is a really nice touch, it gives the vest such a clean look and shows the craftsmanship in the construction. The vest is beautifully lined with a poly-twil material that slides smoothly over a t-shirt, hoody or riding jacket.
The YKK zippers are beefy and easy to grab with gloves on and are strong enough to put up with all the abuse zippers face!
