Got the Harley gripper seat. Looks great. Feels great. Exactly what I
Much thanks guys!
Pat and Jeff, Thanks for treating me so great on Saturday, You guys are the best!
I rode about 150 miles yesterday and it was really comfy.
Also, I was Indy West on Saturday and talked with everyone from the GM, John, to Rick sales mgr, and Ron ser mgr, Cory parts mgr and the service guys,, and they are all very aware of you guys and your quality.
Thanks again and take care.Mark R.
Great job on the seat you did for me on mt victory cc on July 30th at full throttle
My wife and I just returned from a week on the road with the newly modified seat you did on my K1200LT. I was very comfortable for the first time in years on the bike. Your modifications were just what the seat needed. I only wish I had found your shop before spending money for the XXXXXXX modifications. I will definitely be recommending your services.
I just received my seat back. Great job! I really like it. And the price was nice, too.
Thanks so much for all the help!
I wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for a great seat mod! The science you put into your gel / foam buildup works like a charm. I couldn’t ride 80 miles without major discomfort and this last weekend I rode 300 miles for the first time after the modification and never even thought about my seat. (That’s a good thing!) I’m spreading the word about you guys!
Hello Pat, It has been almost a year since I sent my seat to you for a modification. I said I was going to let you know how I liked the mods after a little ride time. Well computer issues locked me out of all my contacts for close to 6 months and I just fixed it. I did not know what to think at first. Of coarse the seat will sit differently but the way it felt at first I was not too sure. I did not get the ride time I wanted to last year but after some good days of riding I came to the conclusion the mods were the way to go. No more hot spots on my butt. I was riding with a fur skin to cool my butt from engine heat and I do not use it anymore so far. Just a note to thank you for the work and am happy to be less pain free riding. Now if the winter weather can go away I can start another year of riding.
Hello Monica, This is Terrell in Austin Texas. Y’all recently upgraded my seat for my 2013 ultra limited. I just finished a 6000 mile ride Through 11 states in 15 days. My seat was extremely comfortable. Thank You very much. I never was Road sore or tired. Look forward to many more Miles. I would recommend for any motorcycle seat replacement.
I sent you my seat last winter. Turn around was very good. I wanted to give the seat a good amount of time to make sure the mods worked for me. Due to mods and design of my seat I could see some difficultly in making it work. Well I did not get to put all the miles I had hoped to but what miles I did proved to me that the job was a success. I have not once had dead spots in my butt due to a hard seat. Job well done.
Dear Pat and staff at Ride & Leather, Astech Seats,
I contacted you about my BMW R1200CL and mentioned 3 problems with my stock seat.
1. I tend to slide forward causing my jeans to bunch in my crotch.
2. Anymore than an hour on the seat and it caused butt pain. Not good for long touring.
3. My wife had the same problem on the pillion, even worse pain.
We bought this bike for touring. After your fix, we gave it a 5 hour test! I no longer have to worry about a gender change or mess with gel pads etc. My wife is very happy which of course makes me happy!
You did a great job for a much more reasonable price than the big names (Meyer, Sargent, Russell etc.). We will recommend you to anyone. Many thanks. George and Linda , Decatur IL
I just wanted to thank you for the continued great customer service and excellent work you and your crew perform. I just had one of my good customers Randy, stop by and show off your excellent work. He also showed me the custom seat cover that you made for his Victory Cross Country (that was almost like a 3D mesh instead of a sheepskin). He was very pleased. I will definitely continue to send people your way. I will be stopping by sometime in the next month or so to have a new seat have your magic performed on it. I recently purchased a second bike with a Corbin seat that does not even compare to the comfort of what you had done to my other bike! I will be sure to schedule an appointment ahead of time before I show up. Thanks again for all of your great work!
You made a seat for my 2003 BMW K1200LT a couple of days ago and on my way home I decided that I’d use my upcoming free Saturday to put the seat to the test. I left home around 6:00am and headed south with the plan to see where I was when I found myself shifting around from being uncomfortable. Other than refueling and grabbing a quick sandwich.
I was never off the bike to rest or recover and in the early afternoon, I was rolling into Memphis, Tennessee! Feeling like Forrest Gump, I simply turned around in a parking lot and headed back home, again only stopping for fuel on the way back. I’m an Iron Butt member and no stranger to putting in a lot of miles within a limited amount of time. Today, your seat proved it’s worthiness and I have no doubt that it will help me to ride better and more safely. Thank you for your service and providing such a great quality product.
I got my seat back last week. Finally had a chance to ride on it over the weekend.
Not sure what you did to it. Curious to know what magic is happening beneath the vinyl.
Thank you for the quick turnaround and the great price!
I do appreciate it.
I received my seat back for my HD Street Glide and have put a couple of hundred miles on it prior to my writing to let you know how satisfied I am.
The increased comfort level and lack of butt & back discomfort are very noticeable, the little trim from the thigh area is great, the slight push back is making it more comfortable on my legs and I’m not consistently “pushing back” in my seat…all of the things I had issues with prior.
Your attention to my needs and fast turn around time are greatly appreciated, I will definitely recommend your services to others I know.
Pat, Ya’ll reworked my Triumph Trophy SE seat at Daytona. Thanks for a great job. The seat is much improved. I no longer use an air cushion. I’ve ridden about 2000 mi. since the seat modification. If ya’ll were closer I’d buy everybody lunch. May visit on one of my future journeys.
Just a quick note to say “thanks”. If the seat rides half as good as it looks, all the better! You’ve exceeded my expectations.
ou worked on my seat 6/21/13. I went from your shop to Louisville, KY about 3.5 hours with no problem. The seat kept me back against the back rest, no sliding off the front and flat footed when stopped.
Good Afternoon Pat !!
I wanted to follow up with you as I’ve been able to get my bike put together and have been enjoying my 2 custom seats you built with the scorpion inlays.
The seats are awesome and the scorpions look great with the bike all complete !!
The double seat was always wide to me and now it’s great !!
The other issue I had with both seats was the fact they would burn or hurt after a while riding.
Now with the gel and re-shape of the double seat…They’re AWESOME !!
I also wanted to let you know how much I like the scorpions you did and even took them to the next level.
I used that test patch you gave me and some Ultra-Fine Point Oil Base Sharpie Markers from Hobby Lobby for Leather to color in the lower areas black.
This made the raised areas really stand out and gave it an awesome 3-D look.
I added some silver for the eyes and they really stand out and have gotten a lot of compliments on the design.
Thank you again for all your help on this project as I know they were a lot of work and took a lot of time.
I’ve recommended you guys to all my friends and am sure they will come visit you for some Gel.
Have a great day and the next time I’m in your area with the bike….I’ll stop by so you can see the entire project.
Just wanted to say thanks for the great job on my seat. I really appreciate the speed and quality you did for me.
I only have had a chance to ride a bit on Sunday and it seems much more comfortable. Wish I had you add another 1” in height, maybe when I return.
We shall see. I leave soon for my 5000-6000 mile trip so I will really put the seat to the test.
I sent you a referral, David B. Not sure if it will turn into a sale. I hope so. He needs padding added to his seat.
The seat and backrest pad arrived today. THANK YOU. It looks great and I now can’t wait for Cris to try it out. When I called her to let her know I received it, she said the same thing. J
I appreciate everything you’ve done more than you know, as I am sure others who work with you do, as well.
All the best,
I seen you at the Indy show right before Daytona. You did my seat about 3 years ago at Wetzel, one of the last ones to be done…..late night for you and the rest. 95 Custom Sporty, Green Greatful Dead theme, at any rate you wanted a testimony and I need my sons seat done. It is a 08 Rocker Softail single seat, no passenger! Was curious if you are still in the swamp and how long it would take me to get his seat back? He graduated from
Wow! Just had the seats done on Thursday, put them on today and went for a ride! Amazing! My wife and I love them, we didn’t even feel the railroad crossing which is HUGE!!!! These were the most comfortable seats we have had! Thank you for your time, expertise, quick turn around time, and amazing workmanship!
Just wanted to say thanks for the beautiful repair job you did on my Harley Hammock Seat. Looks great and I’m very pleased with the results. I will be sure to contact you for any future needs and will pass your info along to anyone else who can benefit from your services. Thanks again!
Hey Pat ,Ralph from Camping Gaspé here.I didn`t get to see you before you left Destination Daytona. I came down with some type of flu bug and missed most of bike week. We took our first ride with the air cushion on Saturday the 24th. We drove to Coco Beach. Madeleine found the air cushion helped her after playing with the height and air pressure. We are going on another ride today and I will let you know if there is anything different.
As far as my new seat cover , it took it`s place, fits like a glove!
Have a good one
Hi. I have a 1997 Yamaha Royal Star and am interested in getting it gelled. My friend’s used your company in Sturgis last year and recommended you. I live in Las Vegas and want to ship seat to you. What are your prices? What is your turn around time?

I received the seat Friday evening and immediately opened the box. Wow! the seat was beautiful. I went straight to the garage to install and then sit on the bike. This is PERFECT!!! You guys absolutely nailed it. I am sitting back about 3 inches and don’t seem to be riding any higher. Exactly what I wanted. Added studs are perfect on this bike. Seat is quite stiff right now, but I assume that will loosen up. I am stoked!!
Thanks so much to you and your team for your attention to detail and your desire to please a customer living a thousand miles away.
Thanks for the good job on these seats. We get good remarks everywhere we go.
Thanks for a job well done. The seat is vastly improved. I rode for 3-4 hours an Saturday and not a hint of numbness. My wife says her seat is vastly improved too. Thanks again
I am interested in having you rebuild the seat on one of my bikes. I have a Honda ST1100 that has a “travelcade” seat with badly collapsed foam. Would you consider an appointment? I would ride up and be there when you open, you could evaluate and we would decide on what needed to be done…Time frame? Would it be possible to be done in a day?
You recently rebuilt a Corbin for my brother John… Great job!!
Pat, you put the Astech Comfort Insert gel insert in my stock Suzuki C109 seat 2 years ago. It has worked well. I am very pleased with the overall result. With this email I am asking if you might be able to repair the seat. Could you quote me a price on replacing the vinyl material where the studs lie and where the tear exists below the studs? I never liked the studs and periodically I hit one and pop it off or damage it.The tear was me screwing around when detailing after a rainy trip. I am addressing this to you because of the excellent work you did with the gel insert.
Hi, I got word of your seat business from my Dad who sent you his HD Fatboy seat to get redone. I took it for a ride this past weekend and it was amazing how much better the seat felt.
I wanted to take the time to thank you for taking such good care of my cycle seats last Friday. What a world of difference. I have 2 cycles and I don’t think I will ever want to ride the one without your inserts!!
Pat, I have now had the time to properly evaluate the seat conversion and thought I would share it with you. The original seat was a one hour seat and then you had to get off for a break. After your rework, I am able to ride for 3 hours without a break. So I would have to say that the rework has substantially improved the rideability. The workmanship is very good and the turnaround time was great. All in all a good experience,Thanks!!
I just wanted to say thank you so much again. I got home yesterday and installed the seat on the bike and went for a ride and all I can say is “Perfection!” My seat feels great, I have never felt so good riding on my bike before. I have over the years made several changes to things on the bike to change seating position and I have finally found my missing link. You guys do an awesome job! I have a potential customer no a K1600 that was asking about your company that is stopping by the shop to look at my seat to see how it feels/looks. I will continue to send people to your business. If you need anything else just let me know.
Pat, The rebuilt seat is great!
I am a biking buddy of RG whose beemer seats you just did.
He said the original seat was not very comfortable, but the re-work you did made it very good. I have the exact same bike and would like you to perform your magic on just the driver seat the same way you re-worked R’s …………………………………….
I recently purchased a 2011 ultra limited and need a little help reaching the ground. The dealership measured and I need about an inch. Can we accomplish the 1 inch without sacrificing comfort? Harley offers a low profile seat for about $300.00, but I prefer to work with your company if possible. I had you place the Gel inserts in my Softail and I really love the work you did.
A few weeks ago you worked on my 2005 Victory Touring Cruiser seat. It is much more comfortable to ride for long distances now. My rear end does not get sore after an hour of riding like it used to. My wife says her seat is more comfortable also. I appreciate you working on my seat while I waited. That saved me an extra trip of driving. I have recommended you to several of my motorcycle friends,
Looks good, feels much better, great turn around, prompt work THANKS GUYS
Thank you for the great work you did on my seat. I rode home to Miami (from Daytona) with very little stops. I am the guy with the Electra Ultra Black you did on Friday about 5:00, I will recommend you guys to everybody.
