2 Windshields for The Price of 1

Do you like to ride with more wind in your face? Have you ever wanted less wind in your face? What if you could compromise and have both? You’d probably think it was a joke right? Well K and G Cycles has found a manufacturer that has a windshield that delivers on both without having to have two different windshields. The Adjustable Flip Windshield offers dual height configurations that can be change with relative ease wherever you may be.

   flip windshield 2The unique Flip Adjustable Windshield is actually a two part windshield that is made from DOT approved, aircraft quality Lucite Acrylic that is 3/16″ thick. The lower section is dark smoke while the flip portion is clear. The upper portion is designed to be flipped in seconds from its hiding spot located behind the lower portion of the windshield. When raised to its extended position above the lower portion increasing the overall height. BBP-20-128 is available for the Honda GL1800 Gold Wing and goes from 9-1/2” to 21-1/4” in a matter of seconds.

With the addition of one of these “Flip Windshields” you will experience 2 different bike. One that lets you cruise around town, wind in your face on bike with a low profile stance.

Cold Weather Calls for Warm Gear

Motorcycle riders know the farther out of the season we ride, the cooler temperatures we encounter. If we choose to ride then, it usually has us bulking up with multiple layers or with heavy riding gear. Well, things are about to change for the better. There is a company out there that must have quite a few motorcycle riders and be based in an area where there are actually 4 seasons. Mobile Warming is that company, and they have developed a cutting edge line of light weight heated gear suited for any outdoor activity where decreased temperatures and personal warmth are a concern. K and G Cycles is proud to bring you this technologically advance heated gear that is sure to make the outdoors more comfortable.

   Mobile Warming was designed with outdoor enthusiasts in mind. The range of applications is wide-spread including skiing, hunting, hiking, fishing, motorcycling and just everyday use.

Turn on The Night!

At some point in our riding career, we will replace the headlights on our motorcycles and scratch our heads as to which ones to install. Do we stick with the OEM replacement unit? Do we upgrade to a Plasma or HID light? We even have to consider an LED replacement these days. At K and G Cycles our goal is to provide you the best value for your hard earned dollar and sometimes that means searching all over the place to do so. Well, in our travels we have found an affordable priced LED headlight replacement bulb for your Honda Gold Wing GL1500.

BBP-10-105 LED Replacement Bulb    If you want the brilliance and clarity of LED lighting but the price of it scares you away, we have the solution. Part # BBP-10-105 is a condenser style constant current LED bulb that is a direct replacement for the standard H4 bulb found on GL1500s (1988-1997) Headlights. This bulb features 16 high capacity 5 watt LEDs circling this new H4 replacement as well as a condenser lens to greatly enhance the brightness. This is truly an exceptional 80 watt LED bulb. Designed to fit GL1500 Gold Wings 1988-97, this will work as a replacement for any other H4 application. With a price tag under $60 this should be an easy decision.

BBP-10-104_1_LED Replacement Bulb     Now if we the replaced the center light and left the outer ones alone, we wouldn’t be doing much good. Have no fear, we have LED replacements for the outer lights too. A condenser lens constant current LED bulb (Part # BBP-10-104) replaces the standard GE # 192-T 3 ¼ wedge base 5 watt position light bulb as used on the GL1500 Gold Wing front lighting system. This custom designed LED bulb has (5) 5 watt condenser lensed LED’s that come together to give you a whopping 25 watts, all in an LED bulb measuring only 32mm (1¼”) long. This condenser lens LED fits directly into the OEM outer light position sockets on all years of the GL1500 Gold Wing (1988-2000). Since they are sold as a single unit, 2 are required for the GL1500. These bulbs also fit as replacements for most other uses of T 3 ¼ wedge bulbs. For less than $25 each, you can increase your visual footprint dramatically and still stay within your budget.

   Updating your lighting shouldn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. With LED bulb replacements from K and G Cycles you can get the job done for around $100. Increasing your safety by installing cleaner, brighter lights has never been closer than it is right now. Shop on over and get ready yo see a whole new light when it comes to your motorcycle.

Full Function Control for Your Light Show

We all know rolling light shows are becoming the norm in the Motorcycle Show Circuit. The problem is, how do you wire all those switches and have it look good? K and G Cycles knows, but unless you ask nicely, we won’t tell. Just kidding! We carry triple switch blocks that mount to either your front brake master cylinder or to your hydraulic clutch reservoir. This keeps your switches within reach and your eyes on the road. These Switch Boxes are available in either Chrome or Black.

3-pot-switch-box   Part # BBP-52-605A (Chrome Brake Side) Part # BBP-52-605LA (Chrome Clutch Side) are LED switch block assemblies that incorporate 3 rocker style switches with bright amber LED’s. The Switch Boxes mount on either the brake side of the bike or the clutch side and will easily control auxiliary, driving, fog, or marker lights on most Cruisers or Gold Wings. The Switch Block Assembly fits seamlessly for an integrated OEM look. With each reservoir mounted switch box being able to control up to 3 separate items, why not double up and get both the brake and clutch sides so your accessory capability can double. I mean let’s face it, if you are, you may as well go all in. What’s the saying, “Go big or go home!”? Now for all you Sinister, Chrome Hatin’ riders that still love to shed a little light on the subject, we have the same switch boxes but in your favorite color – BLACK! Since I was nice and shared the part #’s with the Chrome Lovers, I will do the same for you. Part# BBP-52-705MA is for the Brake Side, and Part # BBP-52-705LMA is for the Clutch side of the bike.

Stash The Good Stuff Nearby

So you picked out the perfect Cruiser, added Chrome, changed the exhaust, even had it pinstriped, but it still lacks something. Oh yeah, storage! Unless you get one of the big Touring bikes, storage or lack of Storage is something all bikes have in common. On our quest to bring you all the goods to make your bike the best that it can be, K and G Cycles found something new from Hopnel. A handlebar mounted storage pouch that offers a universal fit on almost any motorcycle.

BBP-H50-02BKC Univ Hbar Pouch      Legendary Sewn Products Manufacturer Hopnel has done it again with the latest addition to their line up. The universal fit handlebar pouch, another must have storage pouch system  This Handlebar Pouch measures a generous 8” x 4” x 2” and includes Hopnel’s “digital buddy” clear cellphone pocket system. This cellphone pocket measures 7” x 4” and will accommodate cellphones, MP3 or other devices and loads from the inside of the sleeve keeping Mother Nature out while keeping your devices dry. The clear window also allows for touch screen device operation to insure you retain full capability of your electronics gear you stow in the “Digital Buddy”. For a longer life expectancy, the Clear UV stabilized surface allows easy screen reading and will hold up in the toughest environments.  Installation is a breeze with the 4 adjustable straps that allow this handlebar pouch to be easily attached to most non – fairing motorcycles. How’s that for a design that is made for an often forgotten group of riders.

   Hopnel understands there are more riders out there than the Touring crowd and has stepped up to the plate for then. They also understand that with limited space, most storage items need to pull double duty. Designed with that in mind, this universal mount handlebar pouch offers riders a special pocket for your electronics devices that not only allow you to view them, but operate them as well. Head over to our online store and see this and all of the other great products from Hopnel.

Tour de Force on Your Wing

At some point during our motorcycling careers we must make a choice between Sport and Touring. Thankfully the manufacturers decided there needed to be a Sport Touring class and many of us dove in head first. Though we love this unique class of motorcycles, we often find the ability to carry luggage was the sacrifice. With the tour packs gone, the saddlebags are our only refuge to carry our cargo or luggage. For the owners of the Honda Gold Wing F6B, K and G Cycles has found an great solution for your Sport Touring woes. We discovered a good looking luggage rack capable of the big loads, but sleek enough to blend into the smooth lines of the bike.

F6B smoke rack BBP-52-830SK   This rack (Part # BBP-52-830SK) is custom designed to match the graceful lines of the F6B and mounts with either the OEM mount kit or K and G Cycles Part # BBP-52-830M. This mount is used to mount either the rack or backrest or both. If you have the OEM mount in place, the accessory mount is not required. To give equal opportunity to all of our customers, this Luggage Rack is available in either Show Chrome Accessories bright chrome or their exclusive Dark Smoke Chrome finish. Measuring a generous 18-¾” x 12”(approximately 6-½” wider and 2” longer than OEM) this rack accommodates large luggage tour bags with ease. (This includes Part # BBP-4-603 and BBP-H50-106BK Tour Rack Luggage Bags.) Even when it isn’t loaded, this luggage rack is a welcome fixture to any F6B.

   As accessory pieces trickle in for this fairly new motorcycle from Honda, we will keep you up to date so you can have it all for your ride. Adding accessories to your motorcycle should be a great experience that turns into a better one when that accessory ends up being functional as well. When it comes time to personalize your F6B with form and function, turn to K and G Cycles for all your accessory needs.

The Best Way to Cover Your Toys

With ATV’s and UTV’s becoming more and more popular, we have a tendency to enjoy their off-road capabilities when the weather doesn’t permit motorcycle riding. For many of us that usually entails trailering them to our favorite spot, cabin, or play field to get as dirty as possible. Most of us will clean them up before heading home while a few will wait because they don’t want to clean it twice. All the road grime that accumulates on your machine on the trip home can get pretty nasty and end up being tougher to clean than the days dirt, mud and dust. Have you ever dreamt of a way to protect your ride while you transport it from one spot to another? Let’s face it, road grime, seasonal residues such as sand, salt, and other “magic” spreads and sprays some states use to keep roads clear are nothing short of lethal. They can actually be tougher to clean the dust, dirt, and mud garnered while out riding.  K and G Cycles has what you need to protect your investment while it hitches a ride from Point A to Point B. The Transporter ATV Cover by Ultragard or The Guardian by Dowco – The best covers you’ll ever buy for your utility vehicle.

transport-cover1   Transporter ATV covers by Ultragard are painstakingly designed and engineered to withstand highway speeds (70+ MPH in some areas) with confidence while trailering your machine. Made of water resistant heavy duty polyurethane coated polyester, this cover protects against the elements travelers encounter while heading to their favorite destinations. The Transporter is a Road Cover and Storage Cover all in one affordable unit that won’t leave you disappointed. This heavy-duty cover features securing straps with quick release buckles specifically engineered to reduce buffeting. Six reinforced tie down slots allow access to anchor points positioned to properly secure your ATV to the trailer. It has a class exclusive front cut-out for most snowplow and winch attachments from many of the top manufacturers. This cover is designed to be installed immediately after dismounting your ATV with its scorch resistant heat shields that protects the cover from hot exhaust pipes and as well as the hot motor. A highly visible reflective logo adds a touch of safety while parked too. Additionally, a Smart Design front fuel access panel let’s you fuel up while the unit remains secured on the trailer. With it’s convenient storage pouch this cover is easily portable. The cover measures 47″W x 82″L x 46″H (offering more than enough coverage for most of todays ATV’s) and has a industry leading Five year warranty.

Dowco Guardian ATV Cvr TR-107165     Another offering we carry for ATV’s is the Guardian by DOWCO. Designed with many of the same features as the Transporter, this cover performs just as well. The main difference between the 2 is the warranty lengths. The Guardian has adjustable, sewn in straps that allow for a snug fit for many different models. It features zippered pockets and quick release buckles simplifying installation and removal. Unique to the Guardian is removable bottom straps that secure the front, back and sides while your machine is being trailered. Also form fit zippered pockets adjust to accommodate handlebars and the large lights mounted on them. If you need multiple tie down options, this one has 5 closable access ports providing you with plenty of attachment points. Sure it only has a 2 year warranty, but lets face it  – If you haven’t destroyed it in 2 years, it will almost certainly withstand anything you can dish out.

   We work our ATV’s hard and play with them even harder so clean up is a bit of a chore. Why make matters worse and add road grime to the filth? Get yourself a Transporter or Guardian ATV cover from K and G Cycles and keep the road off your ride when its on the trailer.
