Leather Lid Inserts

Ray V. Gordon is the owner and founder of Leather Lid Inserts located in Southwest Florida. They coined the phrase “We Take The Sag Out Of The Bag” because that is exactly what they do. Ray has been riding motorcycles since he was 14 years old. He's watched the motorcycle industry grow and is glad to be a part of what it is today.

After 35 years of owning and operating a successful aluminum company in Fort Myers, Florida Ray sold the business so he could retire… so he thought. He bought himself a new Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic and just like everyone else with leather saddlebags, his bags started to sag and cave in. He saw a need to fix this problem.

Ray says, “Starting this new business was something I just fell into by fixing my own saddlebags and then behold, friends of friends and others saw what I did and they wanted me to fix their saddlebags too”.

As an inventor and entrepreneur, Ray took his creative background and put his skills to work by experimenting with several different types of material to finally come up with a patented lid and bag reinforcement kit that is designed to help keep the original shape of any leather saddlebag made on the market.
