Having focused solely on seats since 1980, Mustang Seats, LLC has learned a thing or two over the long haul. We have to agree with our friends at Harley-Davidson® when they say, “when you set out to improve the most respected touring machine on earth, you don’t take any short cuts!” With that in mind Mustang’s upgrade accessories for FL Chopped Tour-Pak® equipped models cut no corners!
“Combining Mustang’s legendary reputation for comfort with a perfect match for our seats, these three passenger backrest pad options are a viable enhancement to the most respected touring bike on the market,” says Mustang’s Marketing Director Marilyn Simmons. “We custom tailor every pad and seat to meet The Motor Company’s level of fit and finish… and then build in our own level of comfort!”
The combination of ergonomic design and controlled density polyurethane foam makes these back pads something special. “Provide Mustang comfort to your passenger with this back pad specifically designed for the 2014-15 Chopped Tour-Paks®,” suggests Simmons. Mustang also offers King Tour-Pak® backrests to make sure they have the Harley touring segment covered.

Harley-Davidson made a special delivery of new 2015 motorcycles to six U.S. military veterans, today. The surprise jumpstarts a new partnership between Harley-Davidson and Wounded Warrior Project to help improve the lives of service men and women living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Bill Davidson, great-grandson of company co-founder William A. Davidson, along with six Harley-Davidson employees who are veterans, rode the bikes – led by police motorcade – to Wounded Warrior Project headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla. The team of riders gifted the motorcycles to the injured veterans during a press conference scheduled to announce the partnership.
The six veterans – all of whom have been diagnosed with symptoms of PTSD – were hand-selected to receive the motorcycles because, although they are experienced riders, they no longer have access to bikes due to various hardships. The veterans all are affiliated with Wounded Warrior Project.
“It is important to have the support of corporations like Harley-Davidson which understand the long-term needs of our nation’s veterans and are willing to work with us to help warriors uncover and live with their ‘new normal,'” said John Roberts, EVP of Warrior Relations at Wounded Warrior Project. “We know from our warriors that recreational activities like motorcycle riding provide a multitude of therapeutic benefits for those living with PTSD.”
As part of the new partnership, Harley-Davidson will collaborate with Wounded Warrior Project to develop a program geared toward helping more veterans experience the positive benefits of the open road. Peer-to-peer activities, like motorcycle riding, have been known to provide positive therapeutic benefits for PTSD. One in three returning troops is diagnosed with PTSD symptoms and less than 40 percent seek help.
“We’re proud of the nearly 100 years of support Harley-Davidson has provided to the men and women who defend our country and our freedom,” said Matt Levatich, president and chief operating officer at Harley-Davidson. “Our partnership with Wounded Warrior Project builds on that legacy by supporting these veterans in their quest for strength, freedom and independence.”
HARLEY-DAVIDSON: TOUR OF DUTY
Harley-Davidson has supported the U.S. military, and the men and women who serve our nation, since 1916. The company ramped-up production in World War I, where approximately one-third of all bikes made in 1917 and 1918 were purchased and used in the war. In World War II, the company produced nearly 90,000 WLA models – the workhorse of wartime American motorcycles. Harley-Davidson earned the coveted Army-Navy “E” award for wartime production during World War II.
The company also is proud to employ more than 410 men and women who have served our nation in the U.S. Military, which is more than 10 percent of the company’s U.S. workforce.

These last few weeks I have spent squeezing out the last drops of the impeccable fall weather we have been blessed with out here in the midwest. My journeys have included hiking, riding, flying, standing on my feet all day at a motorcycle rally, and driving a drag car with a 350 chevy and power glide, going 70 mph in 200 feet. Yea, you could say I’m trying to “cram it all in” before the cold weather decides to blanket us. I chose to wear the Darice boot by Harley-Davidson Footwear, for all of my various activities. I must say, I have enjoyed every minute, not only due to the fact that I have been doing some fun things, but most importantly, my feet have been happy while doing all those fun things. We all know you need comfortable shoes to endure long hours while out living life.
The Darice boot, instantly upon slipping into it, gives a feeling of a well broken-in boot. Ya know, the boot or shoe you must have the second you put it on, because you just know. Soft, comfortable, and very flexible, best words I can use to describe this boot.
Whatever your plans are, wherever your journeys are going to take you, I recommend you go out living in the Darice Boot. Visit the site to check them out up close and locate a dealer near you that has ‘em on the shelf!

About Helping with Horsepower
Helping with Horsepower uses a motorcycle as a tool to teach life lessons on a personal and professional level. Abbott House is again partnering with Laura Klock of Helping with Horsepower, who developed the program. The hands-on project has been used in eight other states across the country as a different way to help at-risk youth learn how to overcome life’s obstacles and realize that , like their lives, a motorcycle can be rebuilt even better than before.
