#Airbag #Vests #Safety - Air-bag vests are quickly becoming more and more popular.

They have just launched the AIRV1 air-bag vest...........

16 July, 2013 - Extend The Range Of Your Electric Motorcycle By Far
EP Tender
France flag
#Electric #EV #Tender - If you think about it, this is stupid, even FUBAR. People who buy electric motorcycles (or cars) do it to save money on fuel or/and because of ecological convictions (lack of CO2, noise, etc). Some, possibly myself included, because of interesting performances.

But this product goes against any of the above ideas. EP Tender got launched a few days ago in France, and it is a trailer equipped with a small 600cc engine (coming from the Tata Nano car) and a 35 liter fuel tank. The EP Tender "talks" to your electric car (and maybe with some adaptations to your electric motorcycle) and when the batteries start running on empty, kicks-in the 600cc engine to recharge your batteries while you keep driving...........

#Nigeria #Scooter #Motorcycles - Nigeria has rolled out their very first motorcycle. Developed by National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI), the 80cc scooter uses 85% of locally sourced components and resources.

Apparently, you can't see it on the only photo available, is that this scooter is a trike. IMHO, it looks like a Honda Cub.

Now, the Vice Chairman of NASINE, Dr. Muhammad Sani Haruna, is calling upon the Nigerian government to ban the importation of all motorcycles and scooters so that the national scooter manufacturing industry can be "protected"...........

20 June, 2013 - D3O Aero: The Next Evolution In Motorcycle Armor
D3O Smart Skin
d3o logo
#D3O #Armor #Protection - I have since the beginning been an ardent fan of the D30 material. I even have a jar of the product here to play with. D30 is an orange soft putty-like material that you can very easily shape with your fingers. But when you subject the product to a sudden and strong impact, like hitting it with a hammer, it immediately becomes as hard as a rock.

In other words, it's an ideal product for motorcycle clothing. Since it's flexible, you can put it in places that move, like elbows, knees and fingers, and in the case of a crash, it will become solid as a rock and protect your limbs.

Many top-of-the-line motorcycle clothing manufacturers have since then adopted this magic material. Names like Icon, Acerbis, Triumph, KTM and Klim are just a few of the names that now have D3O material integrated into their products (I even have an iPhone protector case made out of D3O).

But there are two "disadvantages" to the product: 1) price and 2) volume. On the price, the only thing that will help is sell more products. On the volume thing, the D30 is not thicker than most other safety products, like Kevlar, but still thick enough to feel it's there.

But now D30 have announced their D30 Aero range, and part of the offering is the D30 Smart Skin product. The D3O Aero is very lightweight, made for those applications where weight is a big factor. The Smart Skin product is an easy way of integrating the D30 material into garments...........

29 May, 2013 - Macna: Keep Your Head Cool, But Your Body Cooler On A Motorcycle
Macna Dry Cooling Vest
Macna logo
#Macna #Cool #Motorcycle - I'm writing this while the temperature is at its lowest it has ever been, and to think in a week or two it's summer. Going out early in the morning I can see my breath and there's frost on the grass. So why I even think about writing an article about cooling vests is beyond me, but there you go....

Macna, the Dutch manufacturer of motorcycle clothing, launched a cooling vest for those rare days that the sun is out and the temperatures are above single digits. According to Macna, they did not copy the HyperKewl technology used by BMW and Rev'It, since they saw that technology as too limited. Instead they redesigned the technology to be usable for people who ride motorcycles in hot climates and they do it by not making the outside of the vest wet (HyperKewl technology recommends not to use their technology on cotton undershirts, since the vest gets damp).

You pour 1/2 liter of water into the Mecna Dry Cooling Vest, and the vest then uses the natural body heat from your body and some special crystals inside the vest to lower the temperature 10 to 15 °C. Which means if you're riding in the desert and your body reaches 40°C, it'll cool it down to 25°C, a much more comfortable temperature...........

17 May, 2013 - App: Help Others On Motorcycles Be Safe - Great Software
MotoSmarty Assign
MotoSmarty Direction
#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
Maggi FortKnox Active Square
Maggi FortKnox Active Blade
#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
Oakley Monster Dog
USA flag
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...........

If the Fundable web site is to be believed, putting Rhino Tire inside your motorcycle tire will prev

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
ViaTerra Claw
India flag
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...........

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...........

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
GautShark Baseball Hat
GautShark Baseball Hat
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!
Sidas DryWarmer
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
MIT SignalGuru
MIT SignalGuru
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
Goodyear amt tire
Goodyear logo
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......

British red Cross First Aid App
British red Cross First Aid App
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
Armored Kevlar Hoodie
USA flag
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......

21 March, 2012 - Ward Off Motorcycle Jackers With A Female Scream
Screaming Alarm
Video clip
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
Dual Eyewear Sunglass Bifocals
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
Video clip
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..
