From motorcycle radar detectors to motorcycle GPS units, there are a lot of interesting motorcycle gadgets for the road. Here are 10 reviews from the editors at Motorcycle Classics:
1. Different people look at motorcycle radar detectors in different ways. Some believe that if you drive (and ride) like the law-obeying citizen you should be, there’s no need for one. The reality is that speeding tickets suck. They’re expensive, and that’s before court costs, lawyer fees, increased insurance premiums and the time spent getting it all taken care of. Want help avoiding the next speed trap? The TPX Radar and Laser Detection System from Adaptive Systems is designed specifically for motorcycles. The system features a quick-release mounting plate that attaches to a variety of mounts, including, of course, the AdaptiveMount, also sold on the company’s website. The TPX is water resistant, comes with a heavy duty wiring harness, a Visual Alert system that can be mounted just about anywhere on your bike for optimal viewing, and features large buttons designed to be easy to use, even with gloves on. The angled, backlit LCD screen allows you to read it day or night. Certified by Speed Measurement Laboratories, Inc., the leading independent evaluator of radar detectors in the market today. Price: $299.
2. Designed specifically to isolate your expensive electronics from the vibrations of your motorcycle, the AdaptiveMount motorcycle accessory mount features two plates separated by AdaptiSorb vibration dampers. Your gadget mounts to the top plate only, insulating it from the stem of the mount. The double ball-joint design provides a variety of positioning options, easy adjustment and simple installation. Price: starting at $85.
3. When you’re traveling, it’s really nice to be able to keep your gadgets powered on the go, especially if it’s a cell phone you rely on in an emergency. Why not turn your tank bag or saddlebag into a charging station? This Basic Luggage Electrix Tankbag & Saddlebag Power Kit from Powerlet has everything you need to get things wired. Perfect for charging cell phones, GPS units, radar detectors, satellite radios, air compressors and more, the connector can be installed into most any piece of motorcycle luggage. Power can come from an SAE battery lead, a Powerlet outlet or a battery charger SAE lead. Price: $59.95.
