Saddlemen Explorer Special MotorcycleAccording to Saddlemen, their seats range from leading-edge to nostalgic. The Explorer Special definitely fits into the latter category. The elegantly-planned stitching is reminiscent of an older saddle, the kind that would be strapped to an animal rather than a machine.

Don't let the old world styling fool you. This is a modern motorcycle seat with all the comfort provided by today's engineers. Saddlemen have their own trademarked progressive density foam, known as SaddleGel, to give the driver and passenger comfort for the long haul.

Ergonomically designed with a deep bucket and split cushion for independent lumbar, hip, and tailbone support, the Explorer Special gives the rider just enough back support. Some Explorer models come with removable, adjustable backrests.

Chromed studs decorate the sides of the seat and emphasize the classic association. You do have the option of the Explorer without the studs, because Saddlemen wants you to ride in style -- but they want you to have your own style.

Also, have you ever been having lunch and come out to realize that your seat has been rained on? Or got on your bike after the evening cooled and left a heavy dew on your seat? Rather than having a wet backside, you can pick up one of Saddlemen's rain covers for your seat.

Saddlemen seats are hand-sewn and thoroughly tested for all of the hazards that riding can bring, including gasoline spills and sun damage. Seats are very personal, but the modern comfort combined with the classic styling make the Explorer Special unique and well worth the cost.

Sundowner makes a comfortable bucket seat as well with an optional backrest.
