New product helps riders signal for roadside help.
The sense of community among motorcyclists is one of the most awesome parts of being a rider. If you’re pulled off on the side of the road, whether you need help or not, other riders passing by are likely to throw a hand signal or even stop to make sure you’re all right. But being that rider on the side of the road is a tough place to find yourself. Sometimes you need help, sometimes you’re just stopped to see how close the next gas station is. Now there is a product that will save you from waving your hands at passersby trying to flag down some help when you really need it—RadFlagz is a new universal distress signal that can hang from your handlebar on the side of the road.
The flag itself is about 2 inches wide and will hang about a foot and a half down off your handlebar. Made of a bright material with a reflective stripe down the middle of both sides, the RadFlagz will velcro onto handlebars of just about any size and is easily noticed from a long distance away, even at night thanks to the reflective strip. It packs into a small container about the size of a pill container, making it easy to stash in a jacket pocket or saddlebag.
