Latest trends in Custom Motorcycle designs

Wednesday, August 20, 2014 12:18:54 PM America/Los_Angeles

2014's top trends in custom motorcycles

Sturgis 2014 was only a few weeks ago and seems to be growing larger and larger each year. Thousands of bikers from all across the country came to participate in one of the oldest and largest motorcycle rallies in the world. With many bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts comes thousands of bikes that range in all different shapes and sizes you can think of. Sturgis is the place to be to showcase your hog or come out and see one of a kind masterpieces designs of bodywork and handcrafted designs. Jesse Kiser from Yahoo, wrote an article about Sturgis 2014 and what he thinks are the top 5 trends he noticed from the custom motorcycles at sturgis. He believes that the top 5 trends are: Unrestored vintage, Skinnier bikes, forced induction, metal flake, and extreme baggers. One of our favorite trends would probably be the unrestored vintage. Like the article mentioned, "motorcycles are meant to be ridden, not propped up in museums" (Kisser 2014). We prefer this as our most favorite trend because it really shows where motorcycles first began and you can see what once was the first and how it has grown so largely and diversly today amongst all the brands in the market today.

 

He mentioned that extreme baggers are also a popular trend and we can't argue about that. They are very useful and add a classic look to almost any bike. Something about the size and how they are added to the bike, really can get very creative and looks very unique when seen. 

We hope to attend sturgis one day and have the oppurtunity to check out all the hottest bikes across the country. Do you want to attend someday to look at the bikes or maybe showcase your very own?

Skully Heads up Display Motorcycle Helmet

Tuesday, August 12, 2014 9:21:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

Skully Motorcycle Helmet with HUD Display vs Guardian GA-1

  We have so far heard of the guardian motorcycle helmet and know that it provides two cameras that provide the rider with both front and rear vision using augmented reality. The Skully is much like the guardian in using a live camera feed but only it only features a single rear camera and no front camera. The front vision for the rider is just like most other helmets these days and riders don't have to rely on a front facing camera. The release date is set for next year of May 2015 and comes at a hefty price at about $1400. It is a steep price for seems to be only a live rear view camera feed in a helmet. 

The Guardian GA-1 is similar to the Skully helmet, but offers much more. The guardian has the advantage as providiing more useful information to riders such as direction, speed, weather conditions, and also any other hazards on the road. It also provides an additional on STAR like service for riders in the case of a crash which is rpetty cool and very useful. The guardian has almost the same release date as the skully helmet but offers much much more. If they are able to price is in the same area as the skully, they have a significant greater advantage in features that will blow skully away.

At the end of the day, the skully helmet was made so that riders can be aware of what is going on behind them, while the Guardian does just that and even more with more added in technological features that assist the rider in day to day driving. To stay in the market, i beliieve Skully needs to significantly reduce their price so that riders won't be scared off by its high price for its basic function. 

Which helmet would you rather have on your head? Is the skully overpriced for what it is?

Next Gen Guardian GA-1 Motorcycle helmet

Fusar Guardian Motorcycle Helmet with augment reality cameras

 

Have you heard of the guardian? The guardian is the next step in helmet safety technology that goes further in protecting the rider by being more than just a helmet that protects the rider. Fuasar technologies from New Jersey are developing this helmet to give the maximum usefullness to a rider. The Guardian, as they call it, it set to have a two augmented reality cameras installed on it for the front and rear vision. The cameras also scan the horizon and search for any possible dangers to alert the rider. It gives the riders update on traffic and weather conditions. It is DOT certified so it sure is sturdy enough to keep the rider safe should impact occur. We think this is the right step and the future of motorcycle helmets that can really be very useful in its implementation. With further development, it could sync with your smartphones and give you directions on screen from your phone. Hopefully the on screen display wont be very distracting to riders and will hit the market at an affordable price. There are already some helmets that do this function but the Guardian takes it a step further.

The famous classic motorcycle brand is being revived by polaris, the company that bought the business in 2011. The scout was also used in old carnival attraction's Wall of Death. It was a really spectular show and really amazed the audience with riders spinning in a small drome while achieving high speeds and wondering how they managed not to become sick from the rapid spinning.The indian Scout model is set for a 2015 release date and will be the first scout in about 70 years. It is a modern update and revamp of the classic scout model and is set to be released with a price at $10,900. Polaris and indian are aiming the bike to appeal to all riders and age groups. Hopefully polaris can bring the brand back from its roots and push indian to become mainstream amonst the market. It is also another competitor for Harley who are also branching into the Electric motorcycle market This is also going to be the 5th new indian motorcycle model that will join the market. Would you ride the new revamped scout and is it reasonably priced? Can we also see the comeback of the Wall of Death Attraction?

New license requirements for Big Motorcycle riding

Wednesday, July 30, 2014 9:45:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

Chicago proposes new license requirement for Bigger Motorcycles

 

 

According to an artcicle from the Chicago Tribune(2014), Chicago is proposing a new motorcycle license requirement for those who wish to ride bigger bikes that have an engine stronger than 600cc. Illinois states that a third license requiremnet should be required for riders with bikes that are bigger and more powerful than your everday dirtbike. Currently, the motorcycle riding safety test allows riders to take the test on a smaller bike. Instructors say that it is too easy to get the license for riders to get the license and they later ride a bigger bike that is much harder to control and they end up losing control of the bike. They also mention how many returning riders are a huge part of this group of riders who can't handle stronger bikes when they're use to the less powerful bikes. It could possibly be a step in the right directions and could aware those that want a stronger bike, whether it is the best option for them. It could show them that they do not need the biggest bike in the world to get around town. If it sucessful, we could see other implementation in the other states and could eventually become a nation wide ruling. It should not be a problem for experienced riders who know how to control bigger bikes and should be seen as a wake up call to riders who really aren't sure of how hard it just is to control such a bike. Chicago also does not require its riders to wear a mandatory safety helmet either when driving which is also another factor that deals with the fatalities every year.

Could this new motorcycle license requirement for a thrid class be implemented nation wide? Will this help prevent fatalities with inexperienced riders?

New Electric Harley Davidson are coming

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 8:13:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

Harley Davidson is going Green



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiywfDy5fl0

Harley Davidson is one name that comes to mind when you think of a motorcycle brand. Some other things that might come to mind are loud, big, huge, and strong. You might not assoicate those terms with the new bike Harley Davidson new direction its going. The motorcycle brand giant have unveiled a new electric bike for consumers and it plans on mass producing them for the electric motorcycle market. It may just be a prototype now, but Harley Davidson will be sure to perfect a comfort riding experience also with a solid range for electric vehicles.The prototype seems more of a sport bike concept now rather than the bigger harley touring designs.  Maybe they can possibly work with Tesla motors and engineer a bike that has the motorcycle feel with the luxury of a tesla. It looks great as it is and can certainly be a step in the right direction if they can just improve the range/mileage of the bike. That is the only thing limiting the bike right now as with all electric vehicles. http://www.theyucatantimes.com/2014/07/harley-davidson-unveils-new-electric-motorcycle/

Easy Tips to Improve the Look of your Motorcycle

Monday, March 24, 2014 1:13:51 PM America/Los_Angeles

There are a number of things riders can do to make their motorcycle more appealing and look better on the road. Maybe your bike is old, or you have damaged pieces, or you would just like your bike to look more attractive on the street. Whatever the case is, there are plenty of ways to make your motorcycle look cool. All recommendations below are available here at EasyFairings.com

Top 5 Recommendations To Make Your Motorcycle Look Better

1. New Fairings

Cost: High

Appeal: Very High

Maintenance/Installation: High

A new fairing set can make a bike look as good as new, and there are plenty of designs to choose from online. However, the cost of a new fairing set is high, ranging from $300 to $1500 for aftermarket fairings (quality of the material/paint/service plays a factor in aftermarket fairing prices) and $2000 to $3000 for OEM fairings . Also, another factor when buying fairings is the installation. New fairings require time and other parts such as fairing bolt kits to install. Ultimately, however, riders are satisfied with new fairings with a completely new, glossy, and/or custom finish. Below is an example of a custom fairing set created here on EasyFairings.

2. Graphic Wraps

Cost: Medium

Appeal: High

Maintenance/Installation: Medium

A graphic wrap may be the perfect motorcycle accessory to make your bike look better due to high appeal and low cost/installation in comparison to a new fairing set. A complete graphic wrap will cover your bike's upper, lower, tank, nose, front fender, rear fender, forks, and swingarm. Applying graphics can be a bit difficult, so keep in mind precision is required when applying these. Below is an example of a complete graphic wrap kit by Factory Effex.

3. Spike Bolts

Cost: Low

Appeal: Medium

Maintenance/Installation: Low

Spike bolts, as well as other parts, are specifically meant to create a better look on your bike. They look awesome and dangerous, which fits well to some motorcyclist personas. They are very affordable and easy to install. A set of windscreen spike bolts will cost around $10-$30. Spike bolts for your fairings are not recommended because they may cause harm to you if you go down on a bike. Below is an example of black spikes installed on a windscreen.

4. Rim Tape

Cost: Low

Appeal: Low/Medium

Maintenance/Installation: Low/Medium

Rim tape is a simple tool to not only improve the looks on your motorcycle, but it can also create more bike visibility on the road at night (with reflective rim tape). Rim tape is extremely cheap. A set of rim tape for both sides of your wheels costs around $10. Certain rim tape is easier to install than others. Pre-curved rim tape is usually easier to install. Below is an example of reflective rim tape (picture taken with flash). Motorcycle Reflective Rim Tape

5. Decals/Stickers

Cost: Low

Appeal: Low/Medium

Maintenance/Installation: Low

If you are looking for a low cost alternative to making your bike look better, there are plenty of cool stickers/decals to place on your motorcycle. Officially licensed graphics are available online. From the many options of decals include: OEM style stickers, race logos, energy drink logos, and other brands. Below is an example of Monster Energy (officially licensed) decals.

Why Install New Fairings?

Tuesday, June 18, 2013 10:47:33 AM America/Los_Angeles

Is your motorcycle looking shabby? You love to ride, but that old bike of yours is looking a little beaten up. Why not treat your old friend to a new look?

Installing new motorcycle fairings is the best way to update the look of your motorcycle. Whether you have an older bike in need of a updated look, or a newer bike that needs a new personality, a custom fairing kit can help transform your motorcycle's look instantly.

Motorcycle fairings that are properly fitted also help reduce wind drag, keeping heavy road winds from causing both you and your bike damage. State-of-the-art motorcycle fairings help move air and wind away from your bike, keeping you comfortable on those long rides.

Your motorcycle engine runs an average 180*F on the open road, and even hotter if you're stuck in traffic. Without proper protection from your engine you'll burn more than rubber as you ride down the road. Our fairings come with plenty of heat shield to block heat from the exhaust and engine compartment.

Feeling like your current fairings are a drag? They probably are. Loose fairings can cause excess drag on your bike. Loose fairings can also create dangerous road hazards. 

Another critical role fairings play is protecting vital motorcycle components in case of an accident. Fairings encase the engine's vital parts, keeping any harmful components far away from you if there is an emergency. And if your fairings end up taking the brunt of the accident, you can easily replace them to make your bike look brand new again.

Regardless if you're a weekend sports rider or a freeway adventurer, new fairings can give your bike added control and durability. Fairing also give your bike character, class, and personality. Visit www.easyfairings.com and check out the great fairings they have available for your ride.

New fairings come in a variety of styles for your sports bike. Complete fairing sets are perfect for all types of sports bikes. You can easily install fairing yourself with a few tools and a little elbow grease.

Update your motorcycle's appeal. Roll in style, install new fairing for your bike.

Polycarbonate Windscreens

Monday, June 17, 2013 10:23:16 AM America/Los_Angeles

Man! What happened to your windscreen? It looks like it was hammered by a ton of rocks. Seriously, you need a new one. Don't worry, they're easy to replace. All you have to do is determine if your windscreen is built into your fairing or is separate. And with as much debris that's hit yours, you definitely need to replace your old one.

The majority of windscreens on the market are crafted from acrylic plastic, commonly referred to as ABS plastic. Acrylic plastic shields are manufactured cheap and are easily damaged. Low-quality acrylic windscreens are likely to chip, are less impact-resistant and can shatter without warning. An ABS windscreen has difficulty withstanding flying rocks and other debris that motorcycle riders are often subjected to.

If you are looking for quality then you want a polycarbonate windscreen. Polycarbonate windscreens are impact and chip resistant. Far superior in design, polycarbonate windscreens are virtually unbreakable.  Polycarbonate windshields are also approved by the Department of Transportation.

EasyFairings.com only sells quality polycarbonate windscreens.  Our windscreens are injection-molded and come pre-drilled with holes and tabs to allow for the best fit.  Easy to install, all you have to decide is whether you want smoky or clear. Stop shopping and start riding. Check out EasyFairings.com for your new windscreen.

Note: Glass cleaner (such as Windex) should not be used on polycarbonate windshields.
