HeliBars’ Harry Top 10 Countdown: Must haves for your Motorcycle enjoyment! Day 3

Number 8

Garmin 550/665 GPS

I LOVE technology.  The ever changing world we live in has been vastly improved by technology.  Gone are the days of having to stop to open up a map that is outdated and never fits back the same way it came out!  The GPS is a great invention that helps you get where you want to go.  Personally, I like the Zumo 665.  It’s a great model designed specifically for us who love the open road.  It’s easy to read and works great!  If you want to add XM radio the Zumo 550 is the one for you!

Pri-G Fuel Stabilizer

Let’s face it, sometimes your motorcycle doesn’t get as much run time as your lawnmower.  And we all know that the lawn mower needs to be taken care of or it won’t start when it’s time to trim the grass.  So why not take as much care of your motorcycle (or even better care, since if the lawnmower won’t start you will NEED to go for a ride!)  I like to use Pri-G in all my small engines to keep fuel fresh and ready to use.  There are a lot of gas stabilizers on the market but Pri-G, and Pri-D for diesels, are the best!

Add it to your fuel, run it for a while, shut it off and forget it!

The Battery Tender Junior Charger

There’s nothing worse than getting all geared up and ready to go out for your day trip, then to find the battery dead and have to wait to get going.  The Battery Tender line of products are handy and easy to use, lightweight and compact so they don’t take up valuable real estate in the garage.  They are fully automatic trickle chargers and should be a must have item for every motorcyclist.

I have three, two for the shop and one for home!

First Ride Review: Motus Motorcycle (with HeliBars)

In 2012 we had the pleasure of meeting with the gentlemen at Motus Motorcycles and begin working with them on their much anticipated All American Made Motorcycle.  It’s been an exciting journey.  We look forward to seeing (and hearing) many of their motorcycles out on the open road. Check out the link below for the Rider Magazine article on the first ride.

FJR Feedback: From the Mailbag

Dear Mr. & Mrs. ‘Heli-Bars’:

Over a year ago, I visited you at Daytona Bike Week where you installed a set
of Heli-Bars on my 2013 Yamaha FJR.  At that time, you encouraged me to ride
for a year and then let you know how I liked the bars.

When I initially bought the bike, I was aghast to learn that I had acquired a
bike that was somewhat uncomfortable for me to ride due to the pressure on my
arms, wrists and back.  I loved the bike but could only ride it for short
distances and was desperate to find a solution.

I learned about Heli-Bars but was unwilling to risk jeopardizing my new bike
by letting just any mechanic down here in FL perform the installation.  As a
result, I called your company in Maine at which time you told me you travel
to Bike Week to perform installations.  Thus, I came to visit you in Daytona
and two hours later, I had a set of Heli-Bars.

In brief, Heli-Bars were my salvation.  In fact, I just completed a 5,084
mile, three-week trip around the USA (FL to Sturgis to Michigan to FL) which
would not have been possible without them.  I was entirely comfortable
throughout the entire trip due mostly to your Heli-Bars (… and a
comfortable seat!).

They are the best accessory I could have possibly bought.  On my recent trip,
I spent many happy hours riding my bike without a minute of discomfort.  Some
days, I spent anywhere from 6 to 10 hours on the bike.  None of that would
have been possible with Heli-Bars.  In fact, had I not found out about Heli-
Bars, I probably would have sold the bike and started all over again.

In a separate but related matter, I would also like to thank you for being so
friendly and polite to me when I came to visit you in Daytona.  Also, whoever
answers your phone in Maine when I first called, was friendly, patient,
helpful and courteous.  She thoroughly explained everything and answered all
my questions.  In sum, my experience with your company exemplified superb
customer service.

In conclusion, after a year, I love my Heli-Bars and heartily recommend them
to anyone who might be considering a set.  Should you have any  other
questions about my experience or wish to confirm the veracity of this
particular testimonial, you have my permission to e-mail me.  Thank you
again.

With kindest regards, I remain
Gratefully yours,

Robert H., Gainesville, FL

Customer Feedback from Daytona Bike Week – March 2014

, , , , , , ,

One of our rituals at the rallies is to ask our customers to come back and see us, and sign our “autograph book”. We invite them to let us know what they like (or don’t like!) about their HeliBars. Here are some of the comments from customers who came back to visit us in March during Daytona Bike Week…

March 7, 2014:  Just got my second set for my 2014 Ultra Limited. First pair was last year on my Road King. These bars are awesome. I can’t imagine owning a bike without them. You guys are great. Tony is awesome 2 times!                  Doug,  IL

March 8, 2014: One year later (we installed ours at Daytona Bike Week 2013) and 15000 miles later…We LOVE them – my wife’s 2004 FLTR and my 2013 FLTRU. What a difference. Handling, comfort, no back pain after a long ride. Thank you for the bars!               Tom & Jodi, FL

March 9, 2014: 6 months later. Didn’t need to ride but 6 mins. to know this was the best thing I had done to a motorcycle in 50 years of riding. Fabulous, awesome, well worth the money. Don’t delay! Get yours now.                                        Paul, GA

March 10, 2014: 2 years and many miles later, we wouldn’t trade these bars for anything. We have two bikes with these, RoadGlide & ElectraGlide Classic. HeliBars improve both handling and rider comfort. Thank you so much for this high quality product. We are also happy to tell anyone who notices our handlebars to get the bars on their bikes. You will never regret your purchase. They are worth every cent!                                                                                                                                              Tom & Vicki, OH

March 11, 2014: This is my third set of bars. I had them on a 2005 Ultra, 2012 Ultra, and today a new 2014 Street Glide. By far the most comfortable bars and riding position for long haul mileage comfort. I have ridden over 100,000 miles with these bars, and by far they are the Best.                                                                                                                                                                             Al & Claire, MA
