Apparently, Skully, the innovative helmet product company ravaged by internal mismanagement, is back. According to the report, they’ve found investors willing to risk even more money to get their high-tech helmet into customers’ hands. Only the future will tell whether their plans come to fruition.

While I’m not that concerned about Harley and its prospects (they’ve been down difficult roads in the past and survived), the overall decline in driving and motorcycling is very concerning. My two children both ride, but they seem to be the exception these days. How do we transfer previous generations’ love for the open road to our kids…and grandkids? Hopefully, this will become known as just a “blip” in the natural ebb and flow of interests between generations rather than an actual death knell for motorcycling.
Whichever side of the debate you side with this article does a good job explaining and debunking. Personally, I’ve been using earplugs for a couple of years now and would never go back.
