Electrical Connection introduces a new Lighting Isolator System for Indian and Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
Electrical Connection isolators easily and properly connect the lighting from your major motorcycle accessory (trailer, sidecar, trike, etc.) while removing the electrical load from the motorcycles factory wiring, fuses, relays, computers and electronics. Proper isolation of electrical loads will help keep of your stock motorcycle electrical system and factory warranty intact.
The Isolator system is a modular design including a separate sub harness, modules and the Isolator. The system design allows flexibility to use a variety of trailer styles types by simply swapping out a 4 or 5 wire sub harness. You can also move the Isolator from motorcycle to motorcycle by selecting the proper sub harness and Can-Bus module, part of the turn signal and break light system for your particular make.

Achieving a milestone more than 65 years in the making, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced production of its 300-millionth motorcycle. The milestone bike is a Honda Gold Wing produced at the company’s Kumamoto Factory in Japan. Honda will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the iconic Gold Wing in 2015.
Honda began mass production of motorcycles in Japan in 1949 when it built the Honda 98cc Dream Type-D. Today, Honda produces motorcycles, ATV’s and side-by-sides at 32 plants in 22 countries, including two plants in North America.
“This incredible milestone is the result of the millions of customers who have placed their trust in Honda and we would like to thank all of our customers, associates, dealers and community partners in North America for helping make it possible,” said Jerry Chenkin, President and CEO of Honda Canada Inc. “Now, we are focused on the future and the ways that we can harness the challenging spirit of Honda associates to create new joy for Honda customers.”
In 1958, Honda introduced the Honda 50, known globally as the Super Cub, which would go on to revolutionize the industry. This iconic bike paved the way for Honda’s expansion into the U.S. in 1959 and Canada in 1969. The Super Cub, which has sold nearly 90 million units globally since its inception, was the focus of a mid-1960s advertising campaign, ‘You Meet the Nicest People on a Honda,’ that played a major role in the transformation and growth of the U.S. motorcycle market

Stories do not always have to be linear to be memorable. Ask any one who has seen Pulp Fiction.
It would seem natural for someone to join the police force at a young age, and take up work in a machine shop to learn how to customize motorcycles later in life. Most riders ride Harley-Davidsons many more years than they’ve run a custom motorcycle shop. Roy Martin of Roys Toys Customs in Centennial, CO decided to do the inverse. In fact, Martin couldn’t actually give a damn what the world thinks of his timing.
Jewelry designer, leather smith, vintage lover and soon to be hoarder.
Heyltje Rose LLC is the brand owned and operated by Heyltje Rose Bond, jewelry designer, leather smith, vintage lover and soon to be hoarder. The brand is a combination of little pieces of Heyltje soul mixed with a very strong guiding principle and work ethic. At Heyltje Rose we have two methodologies: the one-off pieces and the “collections”. Some found objects beg to be incorporated as an accessory – We can’t deny them – We embellish them, offer them a pedestal on which to shine. Then again, some ideas can’t be refused, either. This is when a concept is translated into leather, metal, or carved wax (that will end up being cast) and can be replicated. Replicated in the US of A I might add.
