Cool Hats For Winter Riding
Whether on or off the bike, these knit caps will keep your ears warm on those brisk winter rides. Even if you live where you can ride all year long, winter brings cooler days and nights that call for extra layers. We fell in love with these cute knit hats.
The "Cordlock Barbwire and Roses" features a self-tightening system by pulling the drawstring for a snug fit. This cap is waterproof, breathable, and windproof. Let's vapor out without letting water in. $19.99
This reversible visor beanie features an allover paisley screen print on this side -- and when you reverse it -- see next picture. This side features a baby cable pattern with a heart shaped patch with skull with bow and crossbone design. Is 100 percent acrylic. $16.99.

Keep Your Rear Cool
The new breathable, shock-absorbing Circulator Seat Pad from Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories promotes air movement and reduced heat and perspiration build-up between the rider and the seat for enhanced long-haul riding comfort. Made with UV-stable materials to resist fading, the pads have a non-slip base and elastic under-seat straps that secure with hook-and-loop fasteners for easy installation and removal.
A low-profile design minimizes seat-height change compared to inflatable seat pads.
The Circulator Seat pads are available in a medium 14.5-inch wide size (P/N 51074-10, $79.95) for Harley-Davidson VRSC, Sportster and Dyna models; large 16-inch wide size (P/N 51076-10, $89.95) for Touring and Softail models, and a 13-inch passenger pillion pad (P/N 51078-10, $69.95). For more information visit Harley-Davidson.com, or stop by your local H-D dealer.
Essentials for Your Motorcycle
If you're one of those riders who likes drinks and tunes at hand while riding, then you need these mounts for your motorcycle, available from Leader Motorcycle. Unlike other mounts, Leader's mounts are simple and easy to install on the motorcycle, plus the company is owned by a woman.
The Roadrunner motorcycle drink holder is available with either a stainless-steel, leak-proof travel mug, or the "Ultra-Snap" insert (see next photo) with special gripping band for cans, water bottles, coffee cups, etc. This Ultra-snap RoadRunner Drink Holder Insert allows the RoadRunner to carry bottles, cans, etc. These chromed, made-in-the-USA iPod mount attaches to the handlebar or controls easily -- no special tools required. We like that. You can mount at almost any angle.
Leader products are made in the USA. For more information, to view a video demonstration, and to order online, visit LeaderMotorcycle.com.
Fashionable Headwraps and Tees
Riders Wraps offers some unique and attractive motorcycle inspired T-shirts, tanks, headwraps and more. We received a few garments to test and found the fabric, rhinestones and appliques to be of top quality. Many companies are offering shiny doo-dads on garments these days. We really like what Rider Wraps has to offer becuase the rhinestones and designs are little different than what's out there. Some of the rhinestone styles have a satin sheen to them instead of a glittery shine -- what you find most of the time. This says "classy subtle glamour" instead of screaming "look at me." Here's a small sampling of what's offered. Be sure to visit the company's Web site to browse the many exciting styles that are available.
Show your support with this HeadBandz that features a pink rhinestone ribbon. This model has on the TotalWrap and a sleeveless V-neck with rhinestone spider web.
Riders Wraps' T-shirt line is called Savvy Threads offering a black "Burn Out" Tee. The burnout is a tissue-weight fabric with the softness of a vintage worn T-shirt.
The Burn Out Tee with Maltese cross is soft and with that slightly used look -- like an old worn-out T-shirt. Burn-out finishes are all the rage right now in T-shirts.

Stay Protected With A Guardian Angel
Becky Brown, founder of the Women in the Wind motorcycle organization and Motorcycle Hall of Fame inductee, has created a great T-shirt for every rider. Her Guardian Angel T-shirt features the popular saying "Never Ride Faster Than Your Guardian Angel Can Fly," on the front. The back has sparkly angel wings.
The saying on the front of the shirt. These wings sparkle!
Designing and marketing these Tees is a longtime dream of Becky's that's she's finally making come true. She lost her job after 30 years and finally decided to go for it. We're glad she did because we think her idea is fantastic! Sizes up to 3X in short sleeve Tees. Matching vest patch is also available. Visit WITW1.com/Angels
