|17 May, 2013 - App: Help Others On Motorcycles Be Safe - Great Software|
|#iPhone #App #Dangers - We told you some 2 weeks ago about a French initiative to use crowd-sourcing to highlight road infrastructure problems. The initiative was not bad, but quite limited since it requires to you to remember where the danger spots where during a ride and then fill them in on the web later. However a much better method has been launched in Belgium for its surrounding countries (so not limited to one country) using smartphones. The approach is quite interesting, innovative and biker safe. Maybe you can lobby the developer to release the app for the rest of the world since everyone can benefit from this app.|
The app is called Moto Smarty and currently works on iPhones with an Android version in test (they are looking for testers). It's the way they allow you to share your experience in bad or dangerous roads that makes this application so interesting.
Basically Moto Smarty records all hazards; potholes, manholes, fissures, slippery surfaces, bumps, dangerous curves, etc... they even warn you of speed bumps. The danger points are pointed out by other motorcycle riders (even car drivers) traveling those same roads and encountering the problem areas.
But here's where it gets interesting...........

|25 April, 2013 - Anti-Theft: Maggi Active Locks With Alarm|
|#Alarm #Theft #Motorcycle - Nowadays putting a simple lock on your motorcycle or scooter is not enough. Thieves have gotten wise to padlocks, chains and disc locks and can open them in seconds. Just locking your bike by using the steering wheel lock is stupid... a child can open that, just have a look at the video:|
Today, you need to have extremely strong locks that take a long time to saw open, and you need something that will dissuade thieves from forcing open the lock, and that something is a screaming siren alarm.
Italian Maggi Group are currently supplying two different locks with alarms. Both locks have a movement sensor and a 100 dB siren. Maybe 100 dB is not the loudest you can hear, but can you imagine sitting next to a lock trying to saw it open while there is a 100 db siren blaring out into your ears? It's not going to be easy.............

|13 March, 2013 - Prescription Sunglasses For Motorcycle Riders From Different Brands|
|Wearing prescription glasses puts me at a disadvantage when riding motorcycle during the day. It's very difficult, at times impossible, to get prescription sunglasses that work well while riding a motorcycle.|
The stronger your prescription, the more difficult it is to get sunglasses. Of course you can get plain sunglasses with a prescription, but they don't work well on a bike. First of all the frame is usually too big to fit properly under your helmet, and they don't wrap around your eyes, so wind will make your cry like a newborn baby.
ADS make lenses for popular sunglasses (and normal glasses) that make it possible to wear just about any sunglass while still having prescribed glasses...........

|7 February, 2013 - Rhino Tires - Never Have A Flat Tire Again|
|If the Fundable web site is to be believed, putting Rhino Tire inside your motorcycle tire will prev|
ent it from going flat, even if you ride over several nails at the same time.
Rhino Tire is a polymer byproduct that gets sprayed inside your tire. The spray was tested on one of the cars in the Gumball 2012 rally, and according to the site, the results were outstanding. According to Rhino Tire, because the inside of the tire is lined with their product, it can withstand holes up to a quarter of an inch wide...........

|17 January, 2013 - Luggage: A Perfect Adventurer Saddle Bag|
|Motorcycle adventure riding, and I don't mean riding to a Starbucks in the next town, requires bringing quite a lot of stuff with you. Sleeping bags, tents, cooking gear, clothing, espresso machine, etc, all of it needs to be stored on your motorcycle for your trip. And as we know, there's never enough room on your bike. One way is to place panniers alongside your motorcycle. Another way is to use the ViaTerra Claw Saddle / Tail bag.|
ViaTerra is an Indian outfit who produces some interesting luggage sets (just look at their tool bag). The Claw is a reversed U-shape luggage that either is placed on your pillion's saddle (i.e. no passenger), or if you really need to take your pillion with you, you can place it on the tail end of your bike...........

|10 January, 2013 - Keep Warm With KTM|
|As we know by now, KTM don't only make great motorcycles. They have lots of great merchandising gear, ranging form very useful to very fun. Something for everyone.|
Now, the Austrian manufacturer have released a down jacket for those who are in the winter and want to keep warm, while still being part of the KTM family.
You can get the super warm jacket in KTM orange, or in black with an orange line. Made out of 90% duck down and 10% duck feathers, three outside pockets and 1 inside pocket..........

|23 November, 2012 - Clover’s New Airbag Motorcycle Jacket|
|Italian motorcycle clothing company Clover have released an all-purpose all-season motorcycle jacket with an incorporated airbag. Called Crossover Airbag, the new jacket is made out of Duratek 7 and it's rain proof. To further protect you from water, inside there's a waterproof membrane.|
The airbag in the Clover Crossover jacket can be optional, i.e., you can order it without an airbag. The airbag deploys in 0.08 seconds which is very fast, and it's fully integrated inside the jacket itself. According to the commercial blurb from Clover, it's the first true 3 layer jacket with a homologated airbag...........

|21 November, 2012 - Bagster: iPad Friendly Tankbag|
|It was bound to happen with more and more folks buying tablets and wanting to use them while riding their motorcycles. A tablet, like the popular Apple iPad, when equipped with GSM you automatically get a great navigation device, since you have an onboard GPS. Instead of having a small screen telling you where to go, you now have a big screen.|
But you can't really put a tablet device on your motorcycle's handlebar, it'll take up too much room. French based Bagster have a solution. A tankbag called RIDER has a tablet friendly flap on the top where you can store your iPad or Android based tablet. The 15 liter, extensible to 24 liters, tankbag is your choice if you want to carry and use your tablet while riding...........

|7 November, 2012 - GoGo Gear Armored Kevlar Hoodie - The Video|
|Some time ago we showed you a cool product, the armored Kevlar hoodie from GoGo Gear. As motorcycle clothing goes, it's pretty neat, since it offers protection (maybe not as much as a leather jacket, but with armor and Kevlar, it's better than normal street clothing), warmth and it looks cool.|
The photos from the GoGo Gear site were good, but it doesn't really offer a good view on this nifty piece of clothing. So here's a video of Arlene Battishill, the creator of GoGo gear, showing the Kevlar hoodie.
|10 October, 2012 - The Ideal Baseball Hat For Motorcycle Riders|
|Sometime ago I stumbled upon this product at a public event in France, and liked the idea. The product, called GautShark is in fact nothing other than a baseball cap/hat for bikers. Why would motorcycle riders need a special hat?|
For one, caps can't be used while riding. They'll not fit under a helmet, so you need to stow them away while riding. You can put them in a topcase, tankbag or in a pocket, but one thing is sure, - they crumble.
Another thing with baseball hats is that when there's sun, they become hot, and therefore your head will start sweating like a pig.
The GautShark hat is made of resistant and thick leather, but the hat opens in slices. What this means is that a) you can easily flatten the hat without causing it any harm (so easier to transport), and b) it lets a lot of air through when you've got them on, so no sweating. Also, they are original..............

|8 October, 2012 - Smelly Motorcycle Boots? Try This!|
|Those of you who have been in the saddle for hours, know this problem. When you take off those motorcycle boots, you and everyone around you will know they're off. The smell can easily compete with the best of the smelliest cheese made anywhere in the world. And if you need to take your motorcycle out again the next day, and you need to put on those boots.... OMG. If you get stopped, the cops might think you were transporting a ripe dead body.|
Here's a product made for ski boots. Ski boots, like motorcycle boots, are sturdy and usually calf-length. They hold out the water and cold air, which results in your feet staying nice and dry. So nice and dry that they'll start sweating. The sweat become bacteria, and that smells, and makes the inside of the boots humid.
Using the Sidas Drywarmer could eliminate this after a long ride. Insert one in each boot, and the strong UV light kills any bacteria and heats up the boots, drying them out.....

|26 September, 2012 - Apps: Smartphone Helps You Avoid Red Lights|
|I knew there was some very usefulness for smartphones, somewhere. Yes, phoning is nice, but so 1990's, texting is nice, but so 2000's, navigation is nice, but so 2010. No, what's really cool is when your smartphone app tell you how fast you should go to catch the next light green. And it's something that's going to happen shortly.|
The geeks at MIT have designed a smartphone app that does exactly that. Using the front camera of your phone (if your phone doesn't have one, stop reading now and go back to your Tandy TRS-80), the software detects when traffic lights change color (red, orange, green), and using complicated formulas (which only MIT folks can understand), it will tell you at what speed you need to be travelling on your motorcycle to reach the light while it's green. So no more stopping for red lights (and no more drag races).
But it's not just a formula, since that wouldn't be possible.......

|25 September, 2012 - Goodyear: Shortly Never Need To Inflate Your Tires Again|
|Good news for lazy people like me. Checking for your tire pressure is a thing that you must do on a very regular basis. Under or over tire pressure not only can cost you more petrol, but is very unsafe. But it's a hassle to check the tire pressure. Knowing myself and my laziness, I've even installed a wireless tire pressure system on my BMW, but I haven't been able to do it on the Ducati. And I usually don't check it.... bad boy!|
Well, for people like me, Goodyear is coming with a solution that is heaven sent. It's a totally self-contained self-inflating tire technology called Goodyear's Air Maintenance Technology (AMT). This very smart system sits inside the tire, and is not connected in any shape to the vehicle, so no pumps, hoses or wires.
Inside the tire is a regulator system that checks the tire pressure......

|18 September, 2012 - App: First Aid By The Red Cross|
|Medical problems happen quicker than what you'd expect. Before you know it something can go wrong with anyone, and I don't mean just accidents. Many of us travel miles on our motorcycles, often with several riding buddies. Anything can go wrong, anything..|
But what do you need to do when something goes wrong with one of us? One obvious problem is a crash, but apart from crashes, what do you need to do when one of your group or family has an asthma attack? Or a seizure ? Or has a diabetic emergency? Or gets burned ...broken bone... the list is very long.
If someone in your group is a doctor, you're in luck, but if no one has any medical knowledge, this FREE app can save someone's life, maybe yours. The application was made for the British Red Cross, and runs on iPhone, Android and Blackberry........

|17 September, 2012 - Armored Hoodies - Perfect For ATGATT|
|For those of you, like me, who believe in ATGATT, this is a great product. The Armored Kevlar hoodie from GoGo Gear. You don't always want to ride your motorcycle with a full fledged jacket. In spring, or even fall, the weather can be nice and warm, but not warm enough to ride with a mesh jacket, and not cold enough to put on a jacket.|
A hoodie that is made out of Kevlar, and has removable armor at the elbows, shoulders and back seems to me as heaven sent. The hoodie itself is made out of heavy duty cotton, while the lining in the back and in the sleeve-back is made out of Kevlar. Meaning you can protect yourself decently against road rash. The added armor will prevent bruising or worse......

Very handy, and can be bought with an electric winch...

|21 March, 2012 - Ward Off Motorcycle Jackers With A Female Scream|
|Motorcycle jacking is something that is common all over the world. People pull you off your precious motorcycle and ride off with the bike. Not much you can do about it, but this little product might help you. The product is not meant for motorcycles, but with a little re-thinking, it could work for us. |
It's a Personal Screaming Alarm, and it's a chain chain. You attach the key chain to your ignition key, the other end to your jacket (or elsewhere), and when you are pulled off you motorcycle, it pulls a pin, and the alarm starts screaming at 130 dB. The interesting thing is that it's not a typical alarm/siren sound, but the voice of a female screaming. 130 dB is very loud, and the thief will be not to comfortable with a sound that will drown out even the biggest and loudest motorcycle.

|16 March, 2012 - Bifocal Sunglasses For Motorcycles|
|While old age creeps up on us, many still have a great long distance vision, but require reading glasses to see what's on the food plate (or read a book). Which means that you have problems reading the dials on your motorcycle's dashboard. |
Many of us just put on sunglasses and guess what's on the dashboard or GPS.
But Dual Eyewear have got a great solution for you, that not only allows you to see close up with sunglasses, but also make you look cool.

The fuel additive is made for 4-stroke, air or liquid cooled engines, and its use if legal.
|3 January, 2012 - Incredibly Loud Horn Coming: Banshee Horn|
|We all know that the horn on our motorcycle sucks. It sound like a duck with a severe cold. But replacing it with a high decibel horn can be problematic when you just require someone's attention. You don't want it to sound like the heaven is coming down on them. |
The Banshee Horn might just be the solution. Small tap on the horn button, and you get your normal horn sound. A stronger push, and 135 dB of sound will hit around you. Plus, the high beam will start flashing.
Have a look at the video demonstration..
