Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet with Internal Sun Shield

Posted on 28 Jun 2013 in Powersports | 0 comments

The engineers at Shoei should be praised for their design work on the Neotec modular helmet. The Neotec appeals to the sport and adventuring touring crowds thanks to its versatility and modular accessibility. The lightweight chin bar rotates smoothly along with the shield on a single axis point, converting this full face helmet into an open face helmet. This feature is incredibly handy when you are paying for gas, enjoying your coffee, or mapping out your route for the long trip back home. The vents and enlarged lock release button are all glove friendly and conveniently located. The Neotec’s drop down internal sunshield offers riders instant relief from the glaring sun thanks to the handy shield retraction button on the left side of the helmet. The smoke sun […]

Posted on 21 Jun 2013 in Powersports | 0 comments

The J-Cruise is Shoei’s premium open-face helmet for 2013. This helmet offers an open-air freedom and easy handling you’d expect from an open-face touring helmet. The J-Cruise is a family member to the Shoei Neotec Modular helmet, and the new Shoei GT-Air full-face helmet. All three models feature a drop down sun visor with a state-of-the-art Shield Retraction lever that handles with ease, even with gloves on. This internal visor fulfills the standards for American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z80.3-2010 standard for non-prescription eyeglasses and is optically correct with no distortion. Both visor and the face shield are 99% protected from harmful UV B & A rays. The newly designed CJ-2 Pinlock Ready face-shield features a slight contour or “air dam” along the bottom to reduce wind […]

Love technology, writing, and spending time on the water in the summer. I have been messing about with computers and various systems since Y2K was la fin du monde.

With this post, we would like to welcome Gary Dagiel from Blue Ridge & Smokey Mountain Motorcycle Adventure Maps as a guest blogger. Gary has been running this valuable service for bikers since 1987 and producing the “Maps” since about 1991. Gary has put together an extremely thoughtful tour guide to assist riders who may be visiting the Smokey Mountain region for the first time or love returning year after year. Hope you enjoy his article. If you believe, as I do, that “time” is our most valuable possession; I believe you will also agree that “vacation time” is among the most “precious of times.” Putting my years of riding & exploring these mountains to good use, I started Smoky Mountain Motorcycle Adventures in 1987 to help […]

Check out David’s hilarious tale from the trail below. The Ladies is Broken by David Blackburn It had been a long, hot day on the road through the southern Prairies – mile after mile of absolutely nothing on the horizon, with only the odd tree or ramshackle homestead to break the monotony. It was harvest time and the dust was everywhere, in every crevice […]
