We all need a battery charger at one time or another and this CTEK version is one of the best in the business. The CTEK range is cleverly designed to monitor your battery, when plugged in, and will keep the battery perfectly charged at all times. It will never overcharge the battery so you can leave it on for months at a time.
The XS 0.8 is specifically designed for motorbikes and it’s so small you can carry it with you on your travels.
CTEK chargers are proudly made in Sweden and they’re so good that they come, as standard equipment in a Rolls Royce, say no more, say no more. It will make a perfect gift for any biker who’s charger-less and constantly needs a jump, he, he?

This clever little device is used for bike-to-bike communication with a range of over 700m. So if your ‘wing man’ gets ahead of you you’ll still be able to tell him/her to pull into the next pub before you both fly by it.
It simply clips onto the side of the helmet with headphones that sit inside your lid and you’ll enjoy up to eight hours of talk time before recharging is necessary.
The Scala Rider also has a built in FM radio, can connect to a MP3 player and GPS module via Bluetooth, plus the ability to connect to the pillion if she/he has one as well. Not recommended for on-board arguments though.
The good news is this device is presently on special offer. So go buy one and save some cash?
Price: R1,800 (was R2,400). Call: DNA Motorcycles 011 472 6434 www.dnamotorcycles.co.za

Due to the shifting of the Euro, Riaan and Darryl need to raise some extra cash to pay for the shortfall for Dakar 2013, please support them by ordering their Dakar supporters t-shirts and forwarding this to all your mates, they only have 500 shirts available at R 200 bucks each, so first come first served.
Kawasaki and Monster energy drinks have been associated with each other for many years now. So if you happen to own a limited edition Kawasaki model of any kind then you’ll need at least one of these on your head? There’re many shapes and sizes to fit all tastes, so drop into the shop for the full range?
On the other hand, if you’re a ‘real’ Monster, with four heads, then tell your beastly mother to buy all of these for a Christmas present. Can you imagine the fun you’ll have swapping them around?
