Continuing our live report from from the 2005
Powersports Dealer Expo in Indianapolis, Indiana -
February 19-21, 2005.
This is the last page, even though there are tons
more stories to tell!
It was a lot of fun and we met many of the
webBikeWorld friends - manufacturers, dealers,
distributors and others who are involved in making
motorcycling fun for all of us!

|This was the first time I
saw the Mossi line of motorcycle clothing.
The clothing appears to be reasonably priced
but with some interesting features.
From my brief examination, I'd say the line
competes with Joe Rocket and Teknic.
The jacket on the left is a nice take on the
hybrid leather-textile-mesh concept.
It has leather over all the important impact
points, with mesh on the chest and back and
solid textile in other places. A
waterproof and removable liner is standard.
Looks like a nice jacket and they said
they'd send one over for a review.
also has a line of rain gear with the 3/4
length "Adventure" styling. This photo
(right) doesn't do it justice, but it looked
very nice to me, especially compared to some
of the other dowdy looking rain suits
designed for motorcycling, most of which are
black or dark colors, which are the last
thing you want to be wearing in poor
Pink is in! I saw many pink
helmets, jackets and other garments.
Check out the photo on the right - the
visitor behind the helmet display has a
pink motocross youth jersey in her
hands. I watched them as they held
the jersey up to the helmets, checking
to see which color matched exactly.
I hope this means more youngsters are
being introduced to motorcycling?
great to see someone break out from the
conservative helmet designs and colors.
AFX had a colorful display of
kid-sized motorcycle and motocross
helmets that would go perfect with one
of the many 50cc ATVs or dirt bikes on
display that are sized for kids.
|Left: Remember the M2R
helmet review we posted a few weeks ago?
It's one of the least expensive Snell
approved motorcycle helmets available,
but we had some issues with the quality.
This flip-up was on display in the M2R
booth; apparently, it's a new release
for 2005, but they didn't seem to be
making a big deal over it. The
quality seemed comparable to a
Zeus 508 or
Motografix makes stick-on, 3D
appliques for motorcycles. They'll
custom make a sticker with small lot
sizes for reasonable prices. They had
some great looking designs and artwork
on display. These stickers were
made for the Honda CBR 1000. They
have a huge number of tank pads, badges,
helmet stickers and more. The
photos here don't do these justice,
because you don't see the depth effect
of the 3 dimensional look.
|That's about it, I hope
you enjoyed this virtual tour of the
