iBike: Phone, Music, GPS and Radar Detector on Two Wheels
image via Gizmodo
Leave it to the French.
Car kits for the iPhone are so commonplace now they're almost boring. Even the TomTom kit, after all, is just a pricey app and cradle. But iPhone solutions for two wheels have been few and far between, and decidedly unsexy.
The iBike kit gives iPhone-using motorcycle integration in style, with an aggressively designed weatherproof wrist mount case carrying a list price of the equivalent of about $42. For complete two-wheel integration, you can add a helmet headset for about $85 so that you can make calls and access your tunes without dismounting.
Additionally, the "So Easy Rider" option also allows voice control of GPS, and reads directions back into the flat helmet-mounting headset. Add Trapster support and you have a complete solution for your hog or rice-burner.
If only I could use this thing on my ten-speed without looking like a total tool...

That's cool. The Price is a little high. But more reasonable than the TOMTOM car kit.

Looks great. Too bad they're starting its sales going into the winter months.

Oh dear lord, that looks dangerous!
Last thing I want to see on the road is someone on a motorcycle fumbling around with a touch sensitive keyboard while wearing gloves trying to play "born to be wild" as he cruises down the highway at 70 mph. :-\

That's definitely cool. I am going to order this for next Spring. :-)I used to stick ipod in my pocket, run my headphones up the sleeve. And for GPS? I taped down a piece of paper with instructions on my gas tank. LOL.

But can you charge while using it? Or is your ride going to be short lived because your phone is killing the battery using trapster on the network and GPS.
