Part of the fun in cruising is getting decked out with all the right gear. Whether you’re heading to Daytona in 2013 or are looking for some solitary back roads where you can really open up the throttle, Motorcycle USA has you covered in the 2012 Cruiser Motorcycle Gift Guide.
MotoCentric Cruiser Pack and Roll Tail Bag Luggage System
The MotoCentric Cruiser Pack and Roll Tail Bag Luggage System is a combination gift that will ensure you have plenty of room to pack for the long trip to Sturgis in 2013. The Cruiser Pack comes with a back rest mounting system that expands from 5- to 14-inches to fit nearly any metric cruiser or Harley-Davidson out there, is made of a 600D Maxtura weather and water resistant material and can be converted into a backpack once the ride is over. The Roll Tail Bag connects via D-ring to the Cruiser Pack and is constructed from the same durable material. Both bags have Reflect-A-Light reflective piping and come with extra wide openings to help get items in and out.
Bobster Renegade Convertible Photochromic Sunglasses
The Bobster Renegade Convertible Photochromic Sunglasses are the perfect choice for the rider who regularly sports a helmet without a faceshield or visor. These glasses offer temple-to-temple coverage and a polycarbonate anti-impact frame. They have a removable goggle strap and removable closed cell foam, and come with a microfiber cloth and carry case to keep them looking good as new. One of the standout features is mentioned in the name; the Photochromic lenses will start out clear in lower-light situations and then darken in bright sunlight, giving riders one less thing to worry about when navigating through mixed conditions.
Pokerun Drifter 2.0 Textile Jacket
Up your style points in 2013 with the Pokerun Drifter 2.0 Textile Jacket. The 600D Carbolex outer shell will help keep you protected, and there are pockets included that accommodate CE approved armor for that little bit extra. Action Back stretch panels allow for increased mobility while riding and Ram Air sleeve and back vents provide adjustable degrees of ventilation. SP Memory Foam is in the shoulders, elbows and on the back and Phosolite reflective piping will help keep you visible in low-light conditions. On top of all that, the Drifter 2.0 is also 100% waterproof and has a zip-out, full sleeve quilted liner with polyfill insulation.
Cardo Scala Rider G9 Powerset
There are almost too many features to list in the Cardo Scala Rider G9 Powerset. The G9 PowerSet has a One+8 intercom that allows for communication between up to nine riders. Before taking off, just bump the separate units together and they will connect within seconds. Once on the road, a Group Buzz feature allows for one rider to talk to all others in the group simultaneously and voice recognition technology allows for commands to be understood within the blink of an eye. Emergency call numbers can be programmed and defined for the country or region you’re in and a Full Duplex feature allows for simultaneous talking and listening. AGC Technology automatically adjusts sound levels based on ambient noise and driving speed, and each headset can be linked to Bluetooth enabled cell phones, MP3 players, GPS units and other such devices. If you’re planning a group ride in 2013, the Cardo Systems Scala Rider G9 PowerSet is a must have.
Bell Custom 500 Skratch Bonneville Open Face Helmet
The Bell Custom 500 Skratch Bonneville Open Face Helmet pays homage to Bell founder Roy Richter’s first helmet designed out of fiberglass and named the “500.” While retaining the original aesthetic design of Richter’s first lid, the Skratch Bonneville Helmet features chrome trim, a custom-quilted liner and custom fiberglass shell. The DOT-certified Skratch Bonneville Helmet has a specially designed EPS foam layer that helps to keep your cranium protected and integrated snaps for aftermarket shields and visors.
Icon Regulator Search and Destroy Vest
The Icon Regulator Search and Destroy Vest means business. This aggressively styled vest features a 1.4mm premium-grade leather chassis and removable hard back armor. It’s tailored to fit well over a jacket, coming in large/XL, 2XL/3XL and 4/XL, and has side fit adjustment straps to help fine-tune the fit for riders of all sizes. The cross-draw pistol pockets and embroidered ICON graphic on the front add to the stylish look of the Regulator.
