If you'd rather watch than read, check out my video of the two remotes and my upgraded 10R headset.
I love presents. Especially when they're for my motorcycle!
While I was home, I upgraded my headset from the Sena SMH10R to the Sena 10R. The reason I did this was because my younger brother wanted what I had. And I had been thinking about upgrading to the 10R so I could use these cool remotes. So what did he do? He gifted me a new 10R. Thanks little brother! (He's in his mid 30s but he'll always be my little brother) So that's how I ended up with these lovely remotes. Now the husband will have to upgrade shortly, so he can have a remote too.
The headsets are virtually identical in form but the 10R has a few new features that may or make a difference to you.
Am I the only one who's thinking "DUH!" We absolutely are. Check out this article from a gentleman who has some very good points about marketing motorcycles to women and why some brands fail and some brands succeed.
If you're not familiar with Black Girls Ride Magazine, it's an web based motorcycle magazine that highlights women of color in the riding community. An often overlooked segment of female motorcyclists in mainstream media.
This month, the editor Porsche asked me to contribute a copy of my Open Letter to New Riders that I wrote a couple years ago.
Racer Gloves have always been my favorite brand. I own four pairs that are over 5 years old because I have never found another glove to give me the same comfort and protection that I have come to love.
Check out my first video overview of these gloves (as well as my first video review). Hope you enjoy, let me know what you think and look for more video reviews soon!
Yikes. Christmas is creeping up on us so fast.
This small, portable Antigravity battery (MSRP $109.99) will not only jumpstart a motorcycle (or almost any vehicle) but it also doubles as the perfect usb charger for a smartphone. I always carry usb batteries when traveling on my bike, even on day trips. Why not have something that'll also give my bike a jumpstart in case something goes wrong?
I'm planning on getting one of these to take with me on trips, just in case I need a jump. It can be hard to find a tow truck, or anyone to help you when you're out in the middle of nowhere, or on the side of the road.
I could see this being useful for anyone on two or three wheels.
The Kriega R20 Backpack is one of my favorite moto accessories. I've never worn any other backpack that was this comfortable to ride with. Fits my frame perfectly, not too small and not too big, just right for daily essentials like lunch, a change of shoes and an ipad and a small purse. If you want something for a 2-3 day weekend then an R25 is in order. But for the daily commuter, this is a must.
And today only, Revzilla is having a 10% off Kriega Sale. How convenient!
Unfortunately I missed Day 12, but here's Day 11!
The American Motorcycle Girls: A Photographic History Of Early Women Motorcyclists, ($33.25 as of 12/14/16) by Cristine Sommer Simmons, is an incredibly history of women riding motorcycles. I wish someone would gift this to me! :)
Gracing the cover is also Dot Robinson, (founder/Motor Maids) who founded the oldest women's motorcycle club in America. A club that I joined over 3 years ago.
The photos are beautiful as well as the stories, and for the woman who rides, she's going to LOVE this book. I think a lot of men who ride would enjoy this as well but for us, I feel it's going to be particularly special to see how the images of women riding has changed over the century.
Especially when it comes to gear! We've come a long way, baby....
Okay, I'm posting this a little early because I just LOVE this gift idea.
This awesome calendar from the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, IA is the perfect gift for anyone who rides. Who wouldn't love these kickass photos of men, women and children on motorcycles?
Honor the history of motorcycling with this really cool calendar. I think even some car enthusiasts would love this. I don't use paper calendars anymore and I would LOVE this. I'm contemplating how many to order for Christmas gifts this month....
