All posts for the month January, 2012

Last year we got some inquiries on heated grips from our customers so we set out to find what was hot in the market (pun intended). A few companies kept coming up in various forums so I narrowed it down to two of the most popular grips. As it turns out, Symtec (Heat Demon) not only makes their own grips but they are the OEM grips for other powersport manufacturers and their parts can be found in other heated grip manufacturers kits.

So, based on review and the fact that other grip companies are using their gear, I decided to add the Symtec Heat Demon products to our lineup of heated gear. One of the great things about the Heat Demon grip-warmers is that they are installed under whatever grips you want to install on your bike. That means you don’t have to sacrafice style or comfort for warmth.

Along with the flexibility of using your own grips, the Heat Demon kits come in a variety of configurations and controllers so that they will work on a wide range of bikes. You can use their standard External kit for your street or off-road bike, the Harley kit for an OEM look, and a metric models inlcuding Goldwings, ST1300’s, V-Strom’s and many more. You can check out their fitment chart to see if they have a model that will work on your bike.

Sorry, but we just took one more reason away for you to park your bike for the winter.

Living just minutes away from the Harley Museum and having been to the grounds you would think that I’d have taken the time to go through it. But, for whatever reason, that’s not the case and the closest I’ve ever come to walking through it was at a portable display at Harley’s 105th Anniversary.

So, to ring in the new year we decided to take a field trip into Milwaukee and see just what the Museum had to offer. We decided to upgrade and get the audio guide which compliments the plaques at each stop. There was a lot of good information that the audio tour provided so I’d say it’s worth the extra few bucks to spring for it.

The tour provided a great history of the brand and some interesting insight into the manufacturing history. The pictures below are but a small part of the tour and don’t do seeing the bikes up close and personal any justice.

If you’re in the neighborhood of the museum I’d suggest you stop in and see a part of the sports history.
