If you watch any action-cam videos on the Internet, you know the 800-pound gorilla is the ubiquitous GoPro. But brisk competition is good for innovation and consumers. Since I use a SENA intercom, I was interested in its hi-def Prism action cam and new handlebar remote. The motorsports camera kit provides all the mounts that any rider could require, including ...

Battery Tender Digital Voltage Indicator Review


Buried deep inside (some much deeper than others) your motorcycle is an invisible countdown clock, otherwise known as your battery. Ride regularly, and/or keep your machine hooked to a slow charger, and the clock ticks very slowly. Don’t ride or maintain a charge and the countdown clock runs very fast. Unfortunately, when the countdown reaches zero, you don’t go. The ...

Sena 20S Motorcycle Bluetooth Communication System Review


I’ve been disappointed by the sound quality of wireless, in-helmet communication systems. Sena’s 20S Motorcycle Bluetooth (4.0) Communication System has the best sound quality I’ve found in a wireless comm system, plus sophisticated features. You can make hands-free calls from your iPhone or Android phone, listen to stereo music, share music with another rider, hear GPS voice prompts and have ...

JunoJumpr Portable Jump Starter Review


It’s amazing what can be fit into small packages these days. The micro SD memory card in my GoPro camera measures 1cm x 1.5cm and isn’t much thicker than a business card, yet it has a 16GB capacity. Even more remarkable, micro SD cards are available up to 128GB! Batteries have gotten smaller, too. Ultra-light and compact lithium batteries are ...

Legal Speeding H.A.R.D. System Review


A lot of the things that can mess up a ride are easy to spot before they become a problem, like distracted drivers and poor road conditions. But one hazard—police radar—is usually impossible to see until it’s too late. Even with a radar detector, the unit’s warning light and audible alert compete for your attention with road noise, traffic and ...

Clearwater Voltage Sentry Review


No-maintenance batteries will start their die-off process the moment they are put into service. Often they will go from fully functioning to dead with little or no warning. Replacement is the only remedy, but that won’t help you much if you’re stuck in the middle of nowhere. Stator or rectifier failure catches riders unaware at the most in-opportune moments and, ...
