Introduction To repeat a statement made in the Introduction Section of the inView Wireless Helmet Brake and Turn Signal System review…”technology isn’t standing still”, even in our COVID-19 world; in fact, in some ways, some technologies have seen an acceleration with many solutions coming into their own to provide timely pandemic coping tools and solutions. …

Introduction Around May of 2018, a thread under the ADVrider Forums/Gear/Vendors regarding a Kickstarter campaign for a new CANbus interface device using a smartphone as the controller caught my eye but, I admittedly didn’t follow up at the time. Zoom forward to late last year…in revisiting a longish list of things to pursue as product …

Will This Change the Helmet Accessories Market? I’ve heard before that the accessories you wear on your helmet can impact its safety. It makes sense. Helmet manufacturers spend a lot of time perfecting the shape of the shell only for many of us to toss on a Bluetooth comm unit and mess that up. The …

Introduction Finally, my first opportunity to do a formal Mosko Moto product review for wBW… it’s been a long time coming. The situation is somewhat of my own making, in having one or two earlier Mosko Moto products pass through as travel loans or for short term viewing, without having done anything formally. My interest …

Introduction This review of the Mosko Moto Navigator Cell Phone Pocket or just ‘Navigator Pocket’ is the second of two Mosko Moto products provided and a companion piece to the just submitted Mosko Moto Pico Tank Bag (V2.0) review. As stated in the Pico review, my interest in Mosko Moto products is two-fold: anything new …

Your phone can serve many functions, from being your onboard GPS system and music player to being your emergency communication device in the event of a breakdown or accident. Riding with a phone is smart and safe – always take one with you. With that said, your phone uses power, and keeping it charged is …

Background One of the most fun things about getting a new motorcycle is modifying and accessorizing it to make it your own. I’ve had my Ducati Scrambler Icon for a little over a year now. After the initial break-in phase I started adding a few of my own touches. First, some comfort features like a …

Dobermann Slip-On Exhaust Has A Beautiful Bark Why do we do it? Take off perfectly good, engine-specific built, tuned mufflers, and replace them with more expensive aftermarket ones?   If we’re completely honest about it there are four reasons why; Lighter weight aftermarket materials Smaller and better-looking products Slight performance improvements Louder and throatier sound …

Staying Charged Charging your phone most of the time is probably a bit of an afterthought. You plug it in at night and unplug it in the morning, or maybe you plug it in more often. At any rate, you likely use the charger your phone came with and you don’t think twice about it. …

Foreword Like other wBW reviews started late last year, the (somewhat) early onset of the white stuff is dictating changes regarding submission and publication. The inView by Third Eye Design product review is one of these protracted activities. This initial submission provides a wBW First Look view into this new and innovative technology-based motorcycle safety …

Introduction Along with the 2019 PACKTALK BOLD and SLIM products with Sound by JBL, came a very timely accessory kit from Cardo. Originally identified simply as the Cardo Audio Kit, it is now typically identified as the Cardo ‘45mm Audio Set’ – a clearer delineation of what this kit provides. This accessory audio kit is …

Alvin Halfaker, the founder of Quiet Ride Helmets, is a man on a mission, a man obsessed by noise, specifically the harmful noise that riders all over the world experience every single time they get on a bike. It’s the wind, the sound of the tires on the pavement, the engine, and the engines and …

Introduction The INNOVV C5 Helmet Camera wasn’t unexpected really, in that it is a logical adaptation of the rugged versatile INNOVV C5 Moto-CAM reviewed late 2017 – two of which continue to cope with the ups and downs of adventure-oriented/off-road activities. It does make for a bit of déjà vu though, in that one of …

Introduction webBikeWorld has been evaluating Bikecomm products since around late 2010/2011, in having reviewed the early Bikecomm hybrid wired/wireless BK-01 and BK02 systems and later on, the standalone HOLA BT systems. Some of them are still here in plastic storage containers and a couple of them get charged up and used now and then. Especially …

What Is It? Feynlab coined the phrase “nano technology ceramic coatings” about 15 years ago and is a pioneer and innovation leader in the field of protective vehicle coatings. Kate Hadland the Feynlab coating installer from Tenacious Detail. It all sounds very Star Trek to me and I half expected the installer I contacted to …

Ever wonder what the inside of your bike’s engine looked like but don’t have the skills or the time to tear it all apart? Curious about those hard to reach places between your bike’s body panels and its wiring, engine, or anything else? Have a nook or cranny around the house or garage where you …

A Review Request From A Friend My favorite part of doing these reviews is helping someone make a wise purchase. None of us wants to spend our hard-earned money on something we won’t like over the long run or that is poor quality. My friend Steve Crawshaw asked me about a month ago if I …

Introduction SENA is a long-term major player in the Bluetooth industry and particularly within the Powersports community.

Bike Background The first motorcycle I remember riding was so tall I couldn’t get either foot down on the ground. I was eight or nine and somewhere south of 4 feet tall. My dad would lift me up on the seat and give me a push to get me going. When I was tired of …

Foreword This first of two Motion Series reviews introduces the new Motion Series systems from UClear and focuses on the Motion 6 system that is the base offering of this new series of products. The more advanced Motion Infinity is the subject of the second review in this series and while it shares almost everything …

Introduction Years ago, GoPro essentially created the action camera market by offering small and lightweight devices that could take a beating and deliver good quality video. Since that time, many other players have stepped into the “action camera” arena including Sony, Garmin, and others. A large majority of action cameras followed GoPro’s lead and designed …

I gotta say, I didn’t think that when I sat down to write this review that the angle I’d take would be one of sex appeal and beauty. Yet, here I am about to write exactly that… about helmet stands, of all things. Disclosure: Halley sent me their helmet stands at no cost for the …

Technology has become a part of almost every aspect of our daily lives. Not only do we rely on it for many forms of entertainment but we also depend on it for necessities such as communication, gathering information and even navigation when we are traveling. How long has it been since you referred to a …

Your Scrambler Will Never Have Sounded So Good The Ducati Scrambler is one of those bikes that seemed to scratch people right where they itched. It looks undeniably cool, offers good on-road qualities and some minor off-road game, and even provides a good platform for customization. While you can do just about anything to these …

Introduction How time flies; it seems like it was only yesterday since we published our first look at the INNOVV Power Hub 1 product – I’ll blame it on cabin fever generated largely due to our lousy and continuing winter… But like the original Power Hub 1 reviewed in December 2016 to be exact, the …

The Breakdown Like the original K1, the new INNOVV K2 is a dual-channel (front/rear or ??) video recording system, specifically designed for powersports but physically and functionally optimized for motorcycle use. As the replacement for the tried and trusted K1 system, the K2 reflects an updated design and application approach in using a sealed DVR …

Dashcams are becoming more and more popular in cars and trucks in recent years and not without good reason. With costs of vehicle repairs and associated injuries always on the rise, having a video of an incident might provide crucial evidence in determining fault in the event of a crash. Finding dashcams for a car …

The Right Tool For the Job Tool Snobbery Speaking as a licensed Heavy Duty Mechanic I admit to being a bit of a “tool snob”. That doesn’t mean I must always use premium brand tools like Snap-On or Mac, but more that if there’s a tool available specifically for a task I want it in …

A Great Experience with Packtalk Bold and Packtalk Slim Earlier this year I was offered the opportunity to test the Cardo Packtalk radio system. To be honest, I had never used a radio or communication system when riding and never really felt like I needed to get one. I have always liked the solitude that …

For the past three weeks, I have been deliberately muting the sound that I hear. Testing earplugs isn’t particularly complicated – after all, you just put them in and then carry about your normal business – but these earplugs in particular claim to have an ace up their sleeve. You see, the Vibes Hi-Fidelity Earplugs …

Summary Get Lost Goggles are comfortable and inexpensive, and should last you a good long time. They come in a selection of 3 different tints that should cover all your on and off bike needs. Background At this time of the year my motorcycle is snugly tucked inside my garage under cover, and my helmet …

An Inexpensive, No-Brainer Solution to a Problem That Every Rider Has I ran into David Turner – the president of Helmet Halo – while checking out the first day of AIMExpo 2017. We connected and chatted business, motorcycles, and, of course, the Helmet Halo. Being a reader of WBW, David tossed me a Halo and …

I probably should have spent the money in the beginning to buy the K1200RS I really wanted — it seems like I’ve spent enough on this K75 to buy two K12’s by now!  I haven’t been pleased with the riding position of the K75 standard; the pegs seem like they’re too far forward, and the …
