New Baldwin Saddle

Just wanted to post a couple of pics of the high quality work Loren at Baldwin Custom Saddlery did on my saddle.

Thank again Loren and the rest of the gang. I will definitely break it in hard.

Looks great. Is that a taller seat?

I just ordered one at oem height a few days ago. My ass is eagerly waiting for its arrival.

did you shoot that with a wide angle lens? They look almost like fish eye shots.

Yes, wide angle. I have 5 settings on the camera and still figuring out how to remember which setting is which.

If you squint your eyes, it will look almost normal.

Oh...I'm gonna have to say it... The baldwin seat and pelican side cases are SEXY! I am soooooo jealous! I know I'm not supposed to covet thy neighbors wife, but how about thy neighbors setup?

Looks great! Did you go with Caribou?

Who is the stranger stablemate in the corner of pic 3?

That Murray must have cost you a bundle! Have you done any upgrades to it? BTW, 10 minutes flat? How about 3 acres...about 20 minutes you think?

We call that the "Ponderosa" here in Florida. That Murray was given to me. I just keep it running. I just don't spend money on anything that doesn't have two wheels.

Yes, I went to Daytona yesterday for lunch (Famous Philly's has the best Philly sandwich I have had anywhere! Yes, even Philidelphia). Just over 300 miles in all.

The seat is a big improvement over the stock seat. I could not ride 50 miles on the stock seat without feeling sore.

We hit the usual Florida rain storm coming back late.

Thanks for the follow up Loren

Damn those are nice seats.
Do you have to send him your seat or do they exchange?
Aren't they about $400?

Me needs to have one.

200 dollar core deposit will get you a seat without sending yours, then you send your old one back for refund.

This tall seat in vinyl with gel was 525 dollars, gel and tall options were extra.
