Ready to Rock

Around the ITN office, we know a little about wiring. How it’s necessary, but also tedious, time-consuming, and frustrating. But it doesn’t have to be. ASA Electronics now offers a replacement radio for your Harley-Davidson’s stock unit that’s loaded with features like an AUX input, Sirus and XM compatibility, and four channels of output with 50 watts of power available on each. Built to handle the extreme temperatures and vibration that motorcycling demands, they even plug right into the factory harness and work with your factory handlebar controls. If that doesn’t take the headache out of wiring, then nothing will. If you’re as interested as we are, find more information <ahref=””>here.


Tag it and Bag it

For some of us, hard bags are just more bulk and weight than the daily ride requires. That makes these new CL-890 Mini Expandable Saddlebags from Nelson Rigg compelling, with their ability to expand their internal capacity by 50% when needed. Made from a durable and UV resistant ballistic nylon, they’re also backed by a lifetime warranty. Check them out HERE!
