Motorcycle Profiling Project

A recent incident in Modesto, California further evidences that law enforcement is employing a new strategy to target motorcycle clubs. The MPP has reported on the the national trend towards law enforcement attempting to disarm motorcycle club members, including those that have no criminal record, for no other reason than their association with a motorcycle club. In fact, many incidents, including the instant case in California, involve individuals that have a Carry Concealed Weapon license, which also means they have no criminal record and have undergone extensive background checks.

SaddlemenIntroducing The New Saddlemen Step Up LS

Now Available for select new 2018 Softails from Harley Davidson

Press Release: Saddlemen’s new Step Up LS for 2018 Harley Davidson Softails was created specifically for a single purpose: create a saddle that keeps the rider in position and on the saddle under nearly all dynamic conditions. A specially designed lumbar support provides the ergonomics to keep the rider locked into place without comprising control or comfort for rider or passenger.

The Step-Up LS uses Saddlemen’s proprietary High Impact UltraFOAM. Years of research and development has led to Saddlemen’s UltraFOAM formulated to create a perfect balance of rigidity and rider compliance; both required for control and enhancing comfort. This process creates encapsulated cell structures with an element-resistant self-skinning foam that seals against moisture and the elements to enhance durability. Combined with Saddlemen’s exclusive GEL-Core™ Technology, the time spent comfortably riding increases dramatically. Gel-Core is engineered to dampen, divert, and deflect energy to create a smooth, therapeutic ride. High Impact Ultra Foam and GelCore are co-molded to reduces engine vibration by up to 50%, and direct impact forces by up to 92 %.  Why does Saddlemen use these innovative but costly materials and manufacturing process? Simple – to add hours and hours of comfortable riding time to every ride! Read More
