LAB-370-Proper Motorcycle Clutch Break-in | PSR Levers and Fat Baggers EZ Clutch Adjuster

5/30/2024
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this episode, I'm joined by Lurch, and we give you proper motorcycle clutch break-in procedures to ensure a good working and long-lasting clutch. Most riders buy their new bike and just ride and don't truly break it in. I recommend breaking your clutch in correctly to widen your clutch friction zone and ensure durability. For those unfamiliar with the term, the friction zone is the critical area where the clutch plates are neither fully engaged nor disengaged. Some riders might call it “dragging the clutch.” Mastering control within this zone is crucial for maneuvering your motorcycle, particularly at lower speeds. Experienced riders, like police officers, frequently operate within this zone to navigate challenging courses, which directly translates to safer street riding. Check out my motorcycle clutch break-in video HERE. SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE Given the shift to cable clutches by Harley, we can still optimize the setup. Harley incorporates a plastic adjuster along the cable line, essentially an automatic adjuster. However, this system lacks the flexibility for riders to fine-tune play or engagement preferences. Fortunately, I've discovered a solution in the form of the Fat Baggers EZ Clutch Adjustor Upgrade. This aftermarket product replaces the stock plastic adjuster with a more durable metal counterpart, enabling precise external adjustments for clutch lever positioning. We carry these clutch adjusters right in the Law Abiding Biker Store. CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! I outfitted my Harleys, including my Police Electra Glide, with a hydraulic system featuring the esteemed PSR Adjustable Clutch Lever. Complemented by the matching adjustable PSR brake lever, these components empower me to fine-tune my clutch lever, achieving precise engagement exactly where I desire it off the grip. For riders seeking similar control and comfort enhancements, a range of PSR adjustable clutch and brake levers are readily available at the Law Abiding Biker Store.

LAB-369-HOG Memberships Are Dead? | PNW Non-Sanction Patron Meet-up With Patron Brad Johnston

5/17/2024

LAB-368-My Experience With The New 2024 Harley Street Glide | Upgrades & More!

5/8/2024
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this episode, I'm joined by Lurch, and we talk about my 2024 Harley-Davidson Street Glide. I've had it for a little while now and I have put some miles on it. I've also done police motors drills on the bike. I give you my opinion of the bike thus far. We talk about the things I like about it and even some I don't. I talk about the parts we've added to the bike and what we plan to add in the future. SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE Unfortunaley, there is not a lot of after-market parts for the new 2024 Harley-Davidson Street Glide. So, for now, we've added some Harley-Davidson parts. These include a 90-degree heavy breather intake, Screamin' Eagle Titanium slip-on mufflers, and a Screamin' Eagle tuner. We also added a Sundowner seat and a Windsplitter windshield for comfort. I really enjoy the Harley Audio Powered By Rockford Fosgate Stage II system we installed.

LAB-367-Harley-Davidson Skyline OS | The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly!

4/30/2024
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com Recently, I launched an in-depth tutorial video focusing on the Harley Infotainment Control Unit "IFCU" Digital Dash system. This cutting-edge technology is now a standard feature on select 2024 models and will continue to be integrated into future touring models. Throughout the creation process of this tutorial, I dedicated extensive time both in the workshop and on the road, immersing myself in every aspect of the IFCU. Despite the absence of accompanying instructions or information, I meticulously explored its functionalities, uncovering both its advantages and limitations. For bikers eager to master the IFCU and harness its full potential, I've crafted a comprehensive tutorial video. You can access it conveniently at LawAbidingBiker.com/IFCU or LawAbidingBiker.com/HarleyDigitalDash. SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE The clarity and size of the screen, coupled with features like the high contrast mode for sunny conditions, further enhance usability. In my opinion, it stands as the most responsive auto manufacturer digital dash system I've encountered thus far, though not without its minor flaws, which I'll address shortly. Before delving into those nuances, it's crucial to note the subscription fee required for embedded navigation: $349 for 3 years, inclusive of live weather, traffic, and map updates. While some may balk at this additional cost, it's essential to contextualize it against the previous Boom Box, where map updates incurred fees ranging from $150 to $200 each time, without the added benefits of live weather and traffic. Whether the subscription model proves more favorable remains a matter for debate. And for those considering whether to opt for embedded navigation, be aware that without it, you'll encounter a QR code prompting you to purchase it each time you access navigation on the IFCU. CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! The most pressing question on many minds, one that I'm unable to fully address at this juncture, is how the IFCU will fare in the long run—say, 5 or even 10 years down the road. After all, my previous Harley Street Glide Special served me faithfully for a decade before I upgraded to my 2024 model. Concerns naturally arise regarding the long-term support Harley will provide for the Harley infotainment control unit. Will the system gradually slow down and experience lag over time? And if so, how will such issues be addressed by customer support? Additionally, the longevity of support from the third-party company responsible for developing the Skyline OS operating system is another pertinent consideration. Items mentioned in the podcast: Fat Baggers EZ Clutch AdjusterKuryakyn Extended Brake Pedal Ultimately, only time will provide the answers we seek. However, as a commitment to all who invest in my Harley IFCU, Ride Planner, or Boom Box tutorial videos, I pledge to keep you updated on any significant changes or developments via new free video releases.

LAB-366-Milwaukee 8 Oil Sumping And How Harley Treats You | With Patron Member Bob Dawson

4/22/2024
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this episode, I'm joined by Lurch and Patreon member Bob Dawson. Bob has a 2021 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special. Unfortunately, Bob's bike experienced oil sumping. We talk about what Bob experienced as the issue presented itself, what he went through with the diagnosis of the problem, and what steps Harley went through to resolve the issue. This is an educational but fun episode. Grab your refreshment of choice and strap in! SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE Symptoms: You may get excessive oil blowback from the crank breathers inside your air intake. You may see excessive oil splattered along the right side of your bike while riding hard or long distances. Your air filter may become saturated with engine oil. You may feel your bike has slightly less powerful as it would on a normal hot day. But eventually, the oil in the crankcase builds to the point that the crank is sloshing through the oil as it gets deeper in the crankcase. Eventually, the crankcase fills leaving massive rotational resistance. Efforts to accelerate are met with no response. The engine simply can’t rapidly change rotational speed because of the resistance. Engine failure comes from there being so much oil build up in the crankcase, that the pan is starved leaving no oil to be pumped to the top end. The engine also overheats just from all the resistance of too much oil in the crankcase. The engine begins to overheat and components such as bearings, lifters, and worse, begin to fail. The rider will never see an oil light which is quite disturbing and a significant design flaw. CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! Consequences: Oil sumping will result in excessive friction and power loss to your Harley M8 engine. Excess crankcase oil is whipped into a froth of air and oil by the flywheel. This condition is called oil aeration. Aerated oil makes scavenging much more difficult and can hinder the return of oil from the rocker box area. The combination of these conditions often results in oil being forced out the head breathers, air cleaner contamination, oil leaks, loss of oil supply, lifter clatter, premature component wear, and potential engine failure.

LAB-364-Dealer Experience of Purchasing a 2024 Harley-Davidson Street Glide

3/28/2024
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com Well, I did it. After 10 years I finally upgraded from my 2014 Amber Whiskey Street Glide Special to a 2024 Harley Davidson Street Glide in Whiskey Fire with chrome finishes. I'm starting to think I have a thing for whiskey. Anyway, we made a business decision to replace my 2014 with a 2024. There have been enough changes that we can dig into the 2024 and provide you, the audience, with valuable information. One such piece of info is our brand new tutorial on the Harley-Davidson Skyline Operating System. SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE So if you listen to the podcast you heard me say that I would buy a new Street Glide if the 2024 models have come out with Variable Valve Timing (VVT). What I learned from Harley engineers is that the VVT motor is extremely smooth and designed to tour. The downside is it gets tricky to install cams and other motor upgrades. I may never install a cam, but I want the ability to do so if I choose. The non-VVT motor is a great base for those of us who want to upgrade our motors in our garages. CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! It's been a while since I purchased a new bike at a dealership and I learned a few things to share with you. I was offered something called Theft Protection. One of the dealerships I was working with automatically added this to my purchase. It is a clear dab of paint they place on different parts of your bike. The clear paint contains micro dots with numbers and the paint glows under black light. As a law enforcement officer (LEO) I can tell you that most LEOs have no idea of this and I can't tell you if this info is in an accessible database. Sponsor-Ciro 3D CLICK HERE!

LAB-361-Interview With Factory Harley KOTB Rider Kyle Wyman & James Rispoli

2/26/2024
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this podcast episode, I get the opportunity to interview Harley-Davidson King of the Baggers (KOTB) riders Kyle Wyman and James Rispoli. We learn a bit about their riding histories and what got them to where they are now. We hear about the upcoming KOTB season and what we might expect. If you're not already following KOTB, you need to! You can watch it live on MotorAmerica+ with a paid subscription or you can watch the races later on YouTube. SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE Kyle Wyman won seven races during the 2023 King of the Baggers season and finished third in the season championship. Kyle is the winningest racer in MotoAmerica King of the Baggers history, with 12 total race wins in the 24 events since the start of the series in the 2021 season, plus the 2021 season championship to his credit. And yet he’s hungrier than ever after signing a new two-year contract with Harley-Davidson. “Riding for the Harley-Davidson factory team has been a dream, and I'm excited to be given the opportunity to continue for two more seasons,” said Kyle Wyman. “We've had a lot of success in the class, but we have come up short on the championship two years in a row. Our goal is to win back the title in 2024 and I look forward to getting started with testing in the coming months.” CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! James Rispoli, riding for Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson, won two races in the 2023 King of the Baggers season, plus he scored five second place finishes and three third place finishes for second overall in the championship. Rispoli, who was signed to a one-year contract with the factory team, has a long history of racing Harley-Davidson motorcycles dating back to racing an XR750 as a teenager, and earning the nickname “Hogspoli” after winning the American Flat Track Production Twins championship aboard a Latus Motors Racing Harley-Davidson XG750R in 2020. He also won back-to-back AMA Pro Racing Supersport championships in 2011-2012. Rispoli fulfills a lifelong dream by joining the Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle® factory racing team. “I am stoked to have signed with Harley-Davidson. It has been a dream of mine to be a factory rider ever since I was a little kid,” said James Rispoli. “Taking confidence and consistency paired with the backing of the factory, I know we are going to be a big threat in 2024. I am very excited to get to work.” Rispoli replaces 2023 factory Harley-Davidson rider Travis Wyman. New Free Video: The BRAND NEW 2024 HARLEY'S I'm NOT Supposed TO SHOW YOU!

LAB-359-Don't Buy A 2024 Harley-Davidson Touring Model Before You Listen To This

2/8/2024
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this episode, I'm joined by Lurch and we talk about the recently released 2024 Harley-Davidson Touring Models. Specifically the 2024 Road Glide, the 2024 Street Glide, and the 2024 CVO Road Glide ST. I had the opportunity to ride these backs recently in Law Vegas at a Harley-Davidson media event. I learned quite a bit of information to pass along to you, the consumer. In the episode, I get into motor size. Variable Valve Timing (VVT) motors versus non-VVT motors, suspension, the new Skyline OS Operating System, performance parts, and more. Hopefully, the info we provide will help you decide which bike is right for you. SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE The 2024 Road Glide and Street Glide only come in one model which we are referring to as the Standard model. For the last several years you could purchase a standard model and a special model. The standard model was more affordable but lacked many desirable items. The special model cost more but had many upgraded items. Now, the "standard" model comes with everything the special models of the past had. The starting price point (chrome finishings) comes in at a price in between what the standard and special model cost. One thing to note is black finishings and certain colors cost more. The new "standard" model is a good starting platform to build from. You can go the performance bagger or the long haul touring route with them. The 2024 CVO Road Glide ST is an all-new model. It is inspired by the King of the Baggers race series. I've been predicting a bike like this for some time. My prediction was wilder including mid controls for more lean angle allowing an amature racer to take it out on the track out of the box. The CVO Road Glide ST has many race-inspired upgrades including carbon fiber parts, an M8 121 motor with upgrades, performance SHOWA suspension, radial Brembo brakes, special track modes, and more. CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! So, you may want to know if you should buy a standard Road or Street Glide, or should you buy a CVO Road Glide ST? Here is what I will say; look back on your last two years of riding and evaluate the type of riding you do. The CVO ST may be the bike for you if want to haul ass and carve up the canyons. Alternatively, the "standard" models may be best if you want to tour. Ultimately you'll be happy if you purchase either. Now, get out there and ride already!

LAB-358-2024 Harley-Davidson Full Model Lineup Released | Our Thoughts

1/28/2024
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this episode, Lurch and I talk about the 2024 Harley-Davidson virtual model release event held on January 24, 2024. You can watch the Harley launch video HERE. Harley introduced the all-new Road Glide, Street Glide, CVO Road Glide ST, and the Pan America. The launch video is of good cinematic quality and tells the story of the creation of these new bikes. As with other large corporations, the video is selling you a vision and a lifestyle but lacks product detail. Don't worry, we have your back. We give you the information you want. Next week, I'm attending a press ride of the new Road Glide, Street Glide, and CVO Road Glide ST. Stay tuned to the Law Abiding Biker Podcast and YouTube Channel for my review of the new bikes. SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE According to Harley-Davidson, the 2024 Street Glide and Road Glide models are more powerful, lighter, and more dynamic, and feature all-new visual design elements that combine a cohesive dynamic flow from the front fenders to the saddlebags. Both models feature an evolved fairing profile that appears refreshingly modern yet retains Harley-Davidson design DNA that makes them instantly familiar. Additional key features include: An updated Milwaukee-Eight® 117 V-Twin engine features a new cooling system that further optimizes thermal comfort for the rider and enhanced intake and exhaust flow to boost performance.Selectable Ride Modes – Road, Sport, Rain, and Custom – electronically control the performance characteristics of the motorcycle.Infotainment technology is powered by Skyline™ OS and presented on a 12.3-inch TFT color touch screen that replaces all analog instrumentation and most switches. A new 200-watt audio amplifier powers a pair of fairing-mounted speakers.Improved aerodynamics enhance rider comfort and reduce subjective helmet buffeting at highway speed by an average of 60 percent. Rear suspension travel is increased to 3-inches. A redesigned one-piece seat shape and padding materials offer a significant improvement in long-range comfort for most riders.

Items mentioned in this episode: Vampliers tool First Aid Kits The CVO Road Glide ST is the quickest, fastest, and most sophisticated performance bagger ever produced by Harley-Davidson, and represents a unique collection of components providing high value to performance-minded riders. A deep solo seat and six-inch riser paired with a moto handlebar put the rider in an aggressive, upright position with West Coast custom style. Key features include: Two premium paint choices: Golden White Pearl or Raven Metallic. A Screamin’ Eagle graphic on the fairing sides and fuel tank is inspired by the Screamin’ Eagle® Harley-Davidson® Factory motorcycles raced in the MotoAmerica® Mission King of the Baggers series. CVO™ 25th Anniversary graphics celebrate a milestone in factory customization.The Milwaukee-Eight® 121 High Output V-Twin engine is exclusive to the CVO Road Glide ST model, tuned to produce 127 horsepower (94kW) and 145 lb. ft. (193 Nm) of torque – the most horsepower and torque ever from a factory-installed engine in a production Harley-Davidson® motorcycle.A lower final drive ratio is selected to enhance acceleration performance in every gear.The use of alternate materials helps reduce dry weight to 800 pounds (363 kg). Mufflers have lightweight titanium shells and forged carbon fiber end caps; forged carbon fiber composite is used to form the front fender, seat cowl and tank console; the oil pan is formed of lightweight composite; and wheel design and wave-style front brake rotors are optimized to minimize unsprung weight.Fully adjustable front and rear suspension include SHOWA® rear shock...

LAB-357-2024 Harley-Davidson Models Released and Predictions

1/15/2024
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this episode, I'm joined by Lurch, and we review the released 2024 Harley-Davidson Models. We also give our predictions about what may or may not be released on January 24, 2024. Harley is doing a virtual launch event on the 24th at 10 AM CST. You can sign up for the event HERE. We will put out a video and podcast following the virtual launch on the 24th. Harley released some of the 2024 models via the website recently. These are the bikes that are carryovers from 2023. Our belief is they did this to keep dealers stocked with new bikes. You see, in 2023 there were a couple of production shutdowns. One was related to a defective brake line from a third-party provider and the other was due to a parts shortage. SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE Missing models (as of the date of this recording) from the 2024 lineup are the Fat Bob 114, all CVO models, all Street Glide models, all Road Glide models except the Limited, and the Pan America standard model. So, one can infer there is going to be something new with the touring models and perhaps the Fat Bob 114. Ryan predicts the 107 Milwaukee 8 motor will be no more after this year. He believes the 114" VVT motor will be in the special models along with the new dash and fairings. He believes the standards will have the older Boom Box GTS unit and a smaller motor. Ryan also believes that Harley will come out with a King of the Bagger model that is more track-ready than the ST models. Lurch and Ryan predict that there will be a mid-sized Pan America. Lastly, Ryan predicts that the long-awaited Bronx Street Fighter will come out sometime in 2024. CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! Lurch predicts the standard models of the Street Glide and Road Glide may be cut. Last year there were many models of the Glides including the standard, specials, limited, STs, and CVOs. That is a lot of models and in his opinion, the higher-level models are more coveted. The standard glides not being a part of the pre-launch spurred Lurch's prediction. Harley removed the surcharge imposed on new motorcycle sales. The surcharge was instituted in July 2021 to combat production and shipping costs related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the surcharge cancellation, a couple of models were slightly reduced in price; those being the Nightster and the Nightster Special.

LAB-356-2024 Indian Motorcycles Lineup

1/4/2024
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this episode, I'm joined by Lurch and we talk about the 2024 Indian Motorcycles lineup. The Indian Motorcycle company hosted a media event in Southern California a couple of months ago. Unfortunately, we didn't get an invite but we have learned a few things since then. For the FTR, Scout, Springfield, and Chief the updates pretty much only consist of color and graphics. With that said, India released two new colors; Sunset Red Metallic and Sunset Red Smoke. A new model for 2024 is the FTR X 100% R CARBON. This was a collaboration with 100%, known mostly for riding goggles. This is a limited edition creation with only 400 units released worldwide. This new FTR sports Ohlins suspension, blue carbon fiber body parts, and Akrapovic exhaust. SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE An Indian Motorcycle representative had this to say about the Scout lineup at the media event: "It's [2023] been an interesting year. It's a turbulent industry right now. You've probably seen earning reports from our brand and some of the other competitors in the space. We're navigating that really well. What's been cool to see for Indian specifically is our market share performance. A couple of weeks ago we had market share leadership in the mid-size category. That is our Scout lineup, for the first time and that is really cool to see. Leading with the Scout lineup, but we're going to focus on other lineups here today, but that continues to be a great performer for our brand. And that's bringing people into the Indian Motorcycle family and over time they're graduating into our other vehicles. So playing the long game there is working out nicely for us and it's good to see the response." CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! Indian Motorcycles released a new audio upgrade they call Powerband. It is coming on the Elite models with what they call the bass boost tune. It has a 9-band equalizer, pre-tuned settings, ride command integration, and underglow speaker lighting. The speakers are rated at 100 watts as compared to the normal 50-watt speakers. Indian claims there is 50% more bass with this new system.

LAB-355-Are We Impartial When Reviewing Motorcycles? | We Just Hit 200K Subscribers On YouTube!

12/19/2023
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this episode, I'm joined by Lurch and we talk about being impartial when reviewing motorcycles; in particular Harley-Davidson motorcycles. This topic was spurred by a voicemail message left by long-time listener Steve Kastell. Steve expressed concern about the impartiality of my Harley-Davidson motorcycle reviews. His concern stemmed from the fact that the majority of the motorcycle ride and review events I attend are hosted by Harley-Davidson. The topic then flows into the announcement that our YouTube Channel just went past 200,000 subscribers. I talk about the journey to get to 200k subscribers; the good and the bad. You can leave us a voicemail HERE if you have comments or questions that might turn into a show topic. SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE We've been at the YouTube Channel and Podcast game for over 11 years now. For the first eight of those years, we reviewed bikes that we could get our hands on. Many of those bikes belonged to friends and family. We were able to occasionally wrangle on out of our local Harley-Davidson dealer. Unfortunately, we generally only got to take those bikes out for a few hours. Here at Law Abiding Biker, we worked hard to get the attention of Harley and most recently Indian Motorcycles. Hopefully, as we continue to grow our reach we'll get access to new brands. We do our best to be honest and impartial when reviewing bikes. I don't just gush over the new bike like some other YouTube Channels. We will pick out things that can be improved on even if they are "knit-picky". The truth is, I've been hard on Harley in the past and still point out when they can do better.

LAB-354-Motorcycle Rider Safety Clothing, Equipment, Paint, Lighting-EVERYTHING

12/7/2023
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this episode, we talk about motorcycle safety, more specifically being seen. A common complaint of street riders is that other motorists fail to observe them. Motorists who violate motorcyclists’ right-of-way frequently state, “I didn’t see him,” or “He came out of nowhere”. We talk about rider clothing, equipment, lighting, paint, and more. Apparel A bright-colored helmet will catch the motorist's attention and enhance motorcycle safety. Over 70 percent of helmets sold are black. Most collisions occur in broad daylight. Wear brightly-colored or reflective clothing to increase your chances of being seen. Bright orange, red, yellow, or green jackets or vests are the best for being seen. Brightly colored helmets can also help others see you. Reflective material on a vest and the sides of the helmet will help drivers see you from the side. Reflective material can also be a big help for drivers coming toward you or from behind. Remember, your body is half of the visible surface area of the rider/motorcycle unit. Motorcycle Color Your best bet might be to go with a white motorcycle, which is bright, reflects light, and stands out from other colors. While white might not be the first choice for riders, it can appear as a classy option. For instance, a white Harley-Davidson shows off your power and style when you’re cruising around town. During the hot summer months, it will reflect light and absorb less heat than a darker motorcycle. However, you’ll have to be careful if you’re riding a bright white bike against snow. If you’re going to be frequently riding in this type of weather condition, ride a bike with a contrasting color. SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE Other colors to consider are orange and yellow, which can draw more attention to your bike. In daylight, green is the most visible color from a distance for human eyes. In the darkness, however, yellow is the easiest color to recognize. The rods (small structures in the eye) are responsible for sight in low-light situations. And the cones are responsible for high-light conditions. CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! Lighting The best way to help others see your motorcycle is to always keep the headlight and, if equipped, running lights on. A motorcycle with its light on is twice as likely to be noticed. Using your high beam during the day and at night increases the chances that oncoming drivers will see you. Use your high beam when it is legal and safe to do so. When it is foggy, use the low beam. Headlight and brake light modulators create a unique light pattern that grabs attention. Additional lighting that shows the dimensions of your motorcycle can help you be seen.

LAB-353-Motorcycle Cell Phone Holders | Quad Lock vs. Biker Gripper | Which is the Best?

11/29/2023
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this episode, we discuss the Quad Lock motorcycle cell phone holder. We bought one to see what they are all about. It's been flooding our social media advertising and we're sure it's been flooding yours. What is it all about and how does it stack up against the Biker Gripper? We here at Law Abiding Biker Media are always open to examining and reviewing rivals to the Biker Gripper cell phone motorcycle mount system. To date, we have not found any other mount system that comes close to the strength, looks, build, quality, and functionality of the Biker Gripper. So, after Quad Lock was spending loads of advertising dollars to push their motorcycle cell phone mount in front of us in our social media feeds, we bought one to handle and test it. Does the Quad Lock stack up to the world's best motorcycle cell phone mount, the Biker Gripper? SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE We did some research and found that the Quad Lock was actually a Kickstarter campaign back in 2011 backed by a couple of bicyclists out of Australia. The Quad Lock was originally designed for a bicycle environment, not a motorcycle environment. It was sold to bicyclists and at some point, the company wanted to expand its market and decided to try to market it to motorcyclists. However, Quad Locks' motorcycle mount system has had serious vibration issues over the years, damaging smartphone cameras internally. And so, they've had to try to appease the angry motorcyclists with adaptations, by making a separate part called a vibration dampener that you can purchase for an additional $20. Now, it seems clear that Quad Lock knew there was a problem with vibrations in their mount system for motorcycles. However, instead of including that part for motorcycle kits, they'll charge you for it. Unless of course, you want to damage your smartphone camera internally. It's also worth noting that all Quad Lock products are made in Chinese Factories. To be fair, the Quad Lock system and cases seem to be of good quality. CHECK OUT OUR HUNDREDS OF FREE HELPFUL VIDEOS ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL AND SUBSCRIBE! In contrast, the Biker Gripper motorcycle cell phone mount is produced and sold by a company of actual motorcyclists (bikers) and it was designed from the ground up for a motorcycle environment. That's why it has no vibration issues and does not damage smartphone cameras internally. The reason the Biker Gripper does not have vibration issues is that the gripper arms on the head move independently to absorb shaking and vibration. And, the rubber pad in the base with our logo on it actually provides grip and isolation from high-frequency vibration. Our logo, however badass it is, is a functional component of the gripper head. Also, the ball head system on the Biker Gripper has some give, unlike the rigid mounting system of the Quad Lock. Again, the Biker Gripper was made for motorcycles from the ground up. And, to our knowledge, the Biker Gripper is the only motorcycle mount system manufactured in the USA and not in China. After spending time with the Quad Lock, I can tell you that it's a finicky system, but you do get a bit smoother with it after practicing. You see, it's a four-tab lock system on the mount and you have to blindly align those four tabs up with the tab cutouts on the case. Once you do that, you then turn it a 1/4 turn to lock the tabs in. Trust me when I say, you'll definitely miss the tab alignment at times, which is a bit frustrating. NEW FREE VIDEO RELEASED: What's The BEST MOTORCYCLE CELL PHONE MOUNT? Quad Lock Vs. Biker Gripper-THE WINNER IS? USA Made! In contrast, the Biker Gripper cell phone motorcycle mount has no intricate locking system and is not finicky at all. Yup, easily pull one side or the other on the Biker Gripper head, push your smartphone in, and let the arm go. It comes out just as easy and in literally one second. It's so easy, you can even do it with...

LAB-351-What Does The Road Ahead Look Like For Harley-Davidson? | Sales Drop By 16%

11/19/2023
Official Website: https://www.lawabidingbiker.com In this episode, I'm joined by Lurch, and we discuss the fact that Harley-Davidson sales dropped by 16% in the 3rd quarter of 2023. We give you the numbers and break them down. We provide you with Harley-Davidson's response to the numbers. We also give our thoughts on the topic. 2023 has been so far so good for Harley-Davidson fanatics. The year started with the reveal of a few new big cruisers, followed by H-D’s new breed of sub-500cc offerings in Asia. Then came the headline-making 2023 CVO duo, which started a new chapter of modernity for the company. However, the story seems different behind the scenes, i.e. in terms of the MoCo’s financials. As a reminder, Harley-Davidson’s reporting format segments the company into three parts: Harley-Davidson Motor Company (all motorcycles except LiveWire), Harley-Davidson Financial Services, and LiveWire. This structure has been the way the Motor Company has handled its financial reporting since it transformed LiveWire into its own company in 2022. SUPPORT US AND SHOP IN THE OFFICIAL LAW ABIDING BIKER STORE Harley-Davidson reported that retail sales of all its motorcycles (excluding LiveWire) declined in all geographic regions in the third quarter of 2023.
