I think I might of bought this instead.
Rob,

It is not for sale yet that is why you have not seen it. I am waiting on the first couple arriving from Japan hopefully by the end of the week. I am still trying to figure out Retail on it.
Your neck bag will support your helmet in a very similar manner but only has one neck bag and not 2.

But, Safermoto need to get a crew to frequent places like the Rock Store, Cooks Corner, or Alices restarant and set up a booth and show those vests around. You could sell a crap load.
Let me know when a good time would be to show up and I will turn up with the truck and a bunch of vest and jackets that people can try on.

Only sold one since Saturday to a guy in Washington I can sign you up as a distributor if you are interested in making some $$$$$

Managed to make it on the local news with the vests as well KTVU 11pm Slot

KTVU 5pm slot

You would not be able to wear the vest under the backpack. You could wear the neck vest that we will have in a few weeks but then you loose all the back protection the MLV offers

Tallrob does have a point (Agoura area, CA). I know of three Hit Airs from Safermoto that have found homes in this area (Oak Park, Agoura, Calabasas) within the last two weeks, and I think there will be one more shortly as well.

BTW, that yellow vest is bright!. Just what I wanted for my commute to downtown Los Angeles.

there are so many bike gathering places , IN Santa Barbara you have Cold springs tavern. Angeles Crest you have Newcombs, In Agoura/Malibu you have The Rockstore and Neptunes Net then down south you have cooks corner and a few others. But In december everyone heads down to Longbeach convention center for the big Motorcycle show. HUGE buying opportunity there.

I am trying to figure out if I want to go to the Long Beach Show or the San Mateo Show the shows are not inexpensive to attend. Any opinions on which I should go to? and why?

well I think Longbeach has literally thousands of bikers decend everyday to that show. the bike lot is quite the scene. There were some great sales going on. Plus there are a lot of cool bars and restarants in downtown LB. also due to LB's location you get SD, OC and LA people. Thats why its such a huge draw. Its centrally located in SoCal.

Trying to figure out if I I should buy "the Bike of my dreams" 1981 Yamaha RD 350LC never sold here so it is a "rare" chance to pick up this import
or save the money and do both shows.

Thanks.
Rob,

I was messing with this today and you can combine two or more cord together using the clips. I will get a couple together and post a video of how I think it will work.

Let me know if you need another cord
