They are quite productive in China. A lot of patents are being filed, but not many are accorded. But here is one that might just make it. The patent is for a motorcycle handlebar. So far, nothing new under the horizon, but this one is special.

Patent Adjustable Handlebar

This handlebar is adjustable in height. It has been one of world's biggest mysteries (for me at least) but motorcycle manufacturers only have one, maybe two, different heights for their handlebars.

Handlebars are made for the average person, being 1 meter 70 in height. All, or most, handlebars are made for that height. So if you are bigger or smaller, than you will notice that your hands are not comfortable over longer distances, that your thumbs become numb and your wrists start hurting you.

I had special handlebars made for me when I was riding my BMW 1150GS long distances (link Open link in a new window). The famous Ricardo Kuhn at the time took all my measurements, and crafted the perfect handlebar for me, something that was so comfortable, that you could ride for hundred of miles per day, and never get cramps in your hands or thumbs.

So that is why such a patent is long overdue.

So let's see if this patent will become something for all of us to enjoy.
