Keep Your Shoes Clean With The Shifter Boot Protector

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 11.47.37 AM

Riding season is upon us, which is hard to believe considering the gargantuan amounts of snow currently on the ground. But it is, and that means you’ll have to once again start making choices about what to wear on your motorcycle. If you haven’t adopted specialized riding shoes, you might be familiar with the issue of having to pick footwear that you don’t mind getting a little dirty or scuffed where they contact the clutch lever. That concern might have limited your options before, but if you get the Shifter Boot Protector, you can just slip it over your shoe and wear any fancy boots you like without damaging them at all. It’s elastic so it will fit over any size boot and costs all of $8.

LightMode Helmets Will Get You Noticed On The Road

lightmode-1

Motorcyclists have a bad reputation for attracting attention in all the wrong ways. But while a good portion of them do like to simply show off, getting noticed is also a matter of safety. Car drivers are used to look for other cars on the road, but motorcycles are smaller and easier to miss, especially at night. Increasing your visibility is never a bad thing, and these LightMode Electroluminescent light kits could not only help in that regard, but could do so stylishly. They’re light-up wires that connect into a small control module, which itself is wedged between the shell and the padding or glued on with 3M adhesives. You can order them as a kit and make your own design. Or if you don’t trust your skills, you can order a number of helmets pre-fitted with the wires. There are three mode selections: constant glow, blink and off. You can use regular AA batteries, but 2,000mAh rechargeables will reportedly squeeze 13 hours of operation before needing to be charged.

Currently on pre-order on Kickstarter, $72 will get you a kit, which comes in aqua, red, white, green, blue, yellow, and pink colours. The pre-installed helmets start at $295 for an HJC CL-Y Razz, and up to $770 for a Shoei RF-1200.
