You may not know this about me but I’m a fanatical motorcycle rider (and if you do know me, you know how much I hate the word “fanatical” so to use it to describe myself actually means something). I no longer have a bike (lost it in the divorce) but I still have contacts in the industry.
These guys sent me an email asking for help getting the word out. They are using a Kickstarter like web site to try and raise a measly $10,000 to produce an interesting idea for riders – a motorcycle jacket that turns into a backpack.
I’ll admit I’m skeptical – I want my jackets to be the highest quality, safety wise – but it looks like an interesting idea and does solve a real problem when riding. Check it out and let me know what you think.
