VIDEO: Air Conditioning for Motorcyclists

I once asked a friend if he ever gets too hot when he's riding his motorcycle. I imagined riding around in a leather jacket, super poofy pants and massive boots all day would get pretty stuffy and sweaty. Au contraire, apparently, most of the time, he was freezing. A combination of Ireland's rubbish weather and the fact that he didn't have a car for when things got really bad. "It's windy on a bike," he reminded me, adding that in the winter rain, it sucked big time.

Lucky for him, EntroSys's Motorcycle Air Conditioning system offers both warm and cool settings and is really easy to set up. Although I'd walk 10 miles in the snow before sticking a hose up my shirt to keep me warm (or cool), I'd imagine there are plenty of motorcycle-riding men who'd be more than happy to risk looking a little silly in exchange for a comfortable ride.

Peep the video below to see how it all works.

    Didn't say how weather proof it was.

    Hope the lock is secure enough that I can leave it on the bike. Can't carry around an A/C unit just anywhere. Federal buildings might have a problem with that.

    LOL so much for real progress plus for those who like pure speed or is a real bicker could care less of this little trinket. Going 120mph plus doing a lonely west Texas highway one doesn't need this.

    That device uses electricity. Computers use electricity. Therefore it clearly belongs on the site.

    I'm really wondering how weatherproof the device is. If you're freezing cold while eating road spray off the back of a semi-truck is this thing going to short out?

    Will it fit on my vespa? O.o

    I ride a bicycle, does that make me a real biker? lol

    Your comment made me think about that movie "Wild Hogs" with Tim Allen and John Travolta. I am pretty sure a big part of that movie was that there is no "real biker" stamp. Anyone can call themselves a real biker if they want. They just have to have a passion for riding on two wheels.

    I bet you don't need a helmet either when you are doing your 120 plus. wow what a cool dude lol and such a REAL biker.

    Now about the A/C. I doubt it will make a big splash in the motorcycle market, but you never know. Maybe the old guys will want something like this just to keep them more comfortable when it's cold. I really have a hard time seeing anyone need this to cool them down though when they are riding a motorcycle...even at low speeds, there should be a pretty decent breeze lol
