Fairless and Allstate Display Custom Built Victory

fairlessAll day today March 7, Allstate Insurance Company and legendary motorcycle builder Rick Fairless will display at Daytona Bike Week his latest custom creation – a reimagined Victory Vegas 8-Ball.

The custom-built motorcycle is part of this year’s grand prize for the Allstate Motorcycle Sweepstakes and will feature signature Rick Fairless designs and customization never before seen by the public. This is the fifth year of the Allstate Motorcycle Sweepstakes and the first year that a Fairless custom is featured as the grand prize.

“When Allstate asked me to build this year’s bike, they asked for one that really fit the image of its riders. I knew I had to push the limits a little with this bike because they insure so many different kinds of folks,” Fairless said. “We ended up with a bike that is really going to turn some heads. This ain’t a bolt-on custom.”

Fairless will be on hand to help debut the new custom machine at the Allstate Rider Protection Zone, which is located at Daytona Speedway. Riders in attendance will have the opportunity to see the bike in-person, learn more about how the Allstate Victory Vegas 8-Ball came to be from Fairless himself, enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win the motorcycle, as well as see some of the other custom bikes Allstate owns, including Arlen Ness and Dave Perewitz originals.

In addition to winning the motorcycle, Allstate will give the winner a trip for two to Rick Fairless’ Strokers Dallas for a free custom paint job consultation, personalized by Fairless himself.

“We’re confident that the winner of this year’s Allstate Motorcycle Sweepstakes is not only going to love their new ride,” said Pam Hollander, senior director of marketing for Allstate Insurance Company, “but they’re also going to love the whole Allstate experience.”

Company Develops Bluetooth Enabled Motorcycle Gloves

Beartek Bluetooth gloves for skiing or motorcycle use

We wear gloves to protect us.  We listen to music on long rides to entertain us.  If we want to do both, then we have a problem.  Your phone is tucked neatly away, and the gloves make it difficult to quickly retrieve it.  Now, you don’t have to.

Using Bluetooth and a new patent-pending glove technology, you can easily control your music and phone calls by simply touching your fingers together.  Answer that call, or change the song, and leave the phone in your pocket!

BEARTek has innovated protective gloves that allow remote access and control of target devices. These feature-rich gloves allow users to conveniently and safely control their Bluetooth enabled smart phone functions such as music and phone calls. Simple touches of the thumb to the appropriate finger will activate the desired function on the target device. The removable module on the back of the glove can be used with any of the future series of BEARTek gloves. You can also control music and calls without taking your hands away from key safety controls. An interchangeable module allows you to own as many different kinds of BEARTek glove as you want, and still only have purchased one electronic device. New features means only 1 new module, not replacing all of your gloves.

To get in on the ground floor, the Columbia Missouri company has launched a Kickstarter campaign where you can help bring these gloves to the public and get your own pair before anyone else!
