Making The Miles More Comfortable

A Touring Bike should afford the most comfort in the Motorcycling World one could imagine. From adjustable footrests, to larger seats, upgradable audio systems and hands free communication, and an often overlooked accessory – Passenger Armrests. No, they aren’t new, unless you own a Can Am Spyder. Add these to your Can Am and your passenger will have the utmost in luxury accommodations.

Spyder pass arm rests BBP-41-159    K and G Cycles  introduces an all new Passenger Armrest system for the Can-Am Spyder RT. These armrests mount underneath the rear of the seat to the frame, providing a very stable and secure anchor point. The positioning of the cast chrome swivel mounts on the side of the passenger seating area maintain a clean line. This also allows the chrome tubular support arms to pivot completely out of the passengers area for easy access to the seat. The armrests match the Smart Mount Backrest, Part # BBP-41-158, and work well together providing both Rider and Passenger with comfort and support.

    Keeping with the notion of increasing passenger comfort, a Honda Gold Wing is a comfortable Touring Machine as well, but there are ways to make it more comfortable for your passenger? K and G Cycles knows full well if your passenger isn’t happy than your ride can be pretty miserable. We want to make sure that doesn’t happen so that is why we carry Passenger Armrest Kits for the passenger on your Gold Wing.

GW pass armrest BBP-52-677A   Part # BBP-52-677A is a set of Armrests that fit 2001-2010 and 2012+ Honda Gold Wings. Covered in OEM matching fabric, these armrests conveniently swing out of the way so your passenger can access the rear seat with relative ease. Installation is simple as the armrests simply bolt to the passenger handles on each side and mount to the frame for a solid mount. For your peace of mind the installation of this kit does not affect Trunk and Saddlebag operation. They can be accessed without removing the armrests. The armrest pads have a 2-1/2″ thick soft foam pad for comfort. Coming in with a dimension of 7″L x 4-1/2″W it is clear to see why these armrests are the preferred choice when it comes to pampering your passenger.

   At K and G Cycles we strive to bring the the latest and greatest in motorcycle parts and accessories. Any time we can enhance the power of your bike or increase the comfort level we take pride in doing so. Adding passenger armrests to your Gold Wing can increase the shared miles and increase the overall enjoyment of owning a your motorcycle. Once you add the armrests, you can then install accessories such as storage pouches and even beverage holders.

Spring Riding Can Get a Little Wet

What do you do when you are out riding early in the season and that bothersome Spring rain wants to go with you? Well normally you’d gear up and ride through, right? Sure you would, but fortunately you are far enough behind this one that all you really need to worry about is the water coming off the road. Now all you need to do is pull over and install your Pac-A-Derms and all is good. Nice Spring days can also mean rain at a whim so you need to be prepared, if not, you just might get wet feet.

pac a derms    Do you wish there was a way that you could add protection to your bike without breaking the bank? Do you want a quick installation accessory that offers some storage too?

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.

These units exceed the heat transmitted by any other form of insulation available in outerwear today. Mobile Warming is committed to continuing to provide the customers with the best quality, best priced and best performance heated products on the market.

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.

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.

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.

Head over to our online store and see this and all of the other great products from Hopnel.
