01

 

This is one of those brilliant products that makes you wonder why someone hasn’t produced one sooner.  It’s a simple, sturdy mount for your smartphone that places it’s screen in just the perfect spot for visibility. Finally, I can use the GPS on my phone while I’m riding. Can’t wait for mine to get here. Check this little gem out at The Cell Buckle site.


Vision Series Headlights from Performance Machine

Performance Machine been dramatically expanding their already substantial offerings over the last few years. We’ve seen them introduce an entire collection of air cleaners, and the Contrast Cut and Scallop series of tin covers, pegs and grips, all of which were right in the wheelhouse of what they’ve been doing for the last forty plus years. So the new Vision Series of headlights, made to the same exacting specifications as the rest of their parts, is an exciting line of accessories for PM to introduce. Check out the stats at Performance Machine and pick up yours from your local PM dealer.

Slot Track Inverted Air Cleaner from Arlen Ness

AN-18-923_300

2013 seems to be the year of the air cleaner. I can’t think of major manufacturer that hasn’t come up with a new one and minimalism appears to be the fad of the moment. As evidence, Arlen Ness’ Slot Track Inverted Air Cleaner. No stats yet to determine its performance against the reigning champs on the market, but you check the product specs at Arlen’s website.


Notes From the Road: It appears I’m lodging in the Honey Moon Suite…

This motel room has a blacklight  over the bed.  I didn’t even notice the paint until the light the came on.

I can say with absolutely certainly the sheets were clean. Sometimes the destination is stranger than the ride. Taken from a motel in Houston’s 3rd Ward.


4 Way Offset Driver from Aerostich

4way

This smart little bit driver is tough as nails and fits all common 1/4″ hex bits,  straight-on at one end or at 90° at the other. I like that the tool sockets are magnetized to keep the bits in place and that the handle is comfortably textured for a solid grip with the greasiest fingers. Areostich even throws in 2.5, 3, 4, and 5mm hex drivers, as well as Phillips #1, 2, and 3, 4.5, 5, and 7mm flat driver bits. I can honestly say this driver comes out of my toll more more than any other and goes “missing” more often than any tool I own. If that’s not an endorsement, I don’t know what is. Available exclusively from the greatest rider catalog on planet earth: Aerostich 


Thundervolt 10.4MM Spark Plug Wires from Sumax

TVsumax

 

There was a time not very long ago where it wasn’t uncommon for a spark plug wire manufacturer to advertise horsepower gains from their product. A spark plug wire can only aid in increasing the size of the spark the plug emits and decreasing the amount of Resistance the electrical current faces on its way to the plug. Following that logic, the majority of spark plug wire manufacturers have stopped making horse power claims in their ads. Not Sumax’s massive 10.4mm Spark Plug Wires, whose dyno tests tout a reliable 2.1 increase in overall horsepower in Twin Cam motors. Take some extra time to properly gap your plugs and you can bet that number will inch a bit higher. Bigger,  hotter sparks and a smoother, faster start -what more could you want? Available now, exclusively from Sumax.
