Props to Baldwin Motorbike Saddles service

Just a quick comment about the great customer service from Loren at Baldwin Motorbike Saddles.
Sent my crappy OEM seat to Loren for a major overhaul with new foam and cover. Came back looking beautiful and comfortable. But after a couple of rides I noticed a strange depression about the size of a silver dollar in the vinyl on the left side. He told me to send it back so he can take a look. Come to find out it was only some adhesive overspray that made its way onto the foam, making the cover stick to it in that spot, giving it a pucker. A little release agent took care of that.
A few days later it was sitting on my door step and he threw in a free Baldwin T-shirt to boot!

A+ in my book.

No t-shirt for me but I don't care. The saddle is 1000x better than stock.
