This Motorcycle Helmet Features A Rearview Camera, Turn-By-Turn Directions
I don’t ride motorcycles, so I don’t have a clue what it’s like to wear a motorcycle helmet.

Moto-Grip keeps motorcycle passengers safe on rides
Motorcycles can be pretty dangerous vehicles, especially when there’s an additional passenger involved. Since they don’t have safety belts, the rear passenger has to find something to hold on to while the bike is moving, and it usually turns out to be the waist of the rider in front, or the tiny rear grab bar if the passenger isn’t very comfortable with the idea of holding the rider close.A product […]
