A note about Motorcycle Gear: When I took my motorcycle safety course, one of the instructors greeted us by saying "Welcome to you next, most expensive hobby." She was quite right. I suspect that the high prices associated with motorcycle gear is in part that there aren't a lot of motorcyclists who haven't created a sufficiently mass market. Another issue is the ruggedness that needs to be built into motorcycle gear. The Zumo Motorcycle Navigator GPS unit needs to be designed to be completely waterproof and operated by people using their gloved left hands. Most motorcycle gear needs to be completely impervious to weather, not a normal concern with traditional automotive gear. In one of the discussions about replacement radios for motorcycles, it was suggested that the marine quality radios make a good alternative.

Motolight Caliper Mount Light Set https://www.motolight.com/proddetail.php?prod=CaliperMountLightSet In the Chromeheads form there is a discussion thread titiled "Has anyone tried Priority Lites?" This thread includes a couple of interesting quotes:
Yea! I would recommend installing motolights.They are a bit pricy but the visability is like ridding a big rig with highbeams on. From the first ride I took after I installed them it was very apparent that caggers see me way farther in advance. I am going to put them on every bike I own.
Ditto what Brrider said. After I installed the Caliper mount Motolites, Cagers immediatly began to yield (see me) even on a bright summer day.
Motolites product is not cheap. All components are "best of". And their tech support if needed is 110%.
Respro Foggy Breathguard #S1558 - A comfortably thin, stretchy neoprene face guard that helps eliminate visor and face shield fogging on cold days. Fits (via hook and loop) into all full face helmets. Comfortable in use. Eliminates the need to tip the shield open at every stop. http://www.aerostich.com/product.php?productid=17931&cat=309&page=1 Even with my new full face helmet I am having fogging problems.
Rain-X – I have been told by relatively reliable sources that RainX works very nicely on both the outside and inside of helmet visors. http://www.amazon.com/Rain-X-7-oz/dp/B000AMGYNK
