I am going to start my own Kickstarter!

The smart helmet - DOT/Snell approves with a built in Sena and looping GoPro in the chin and in the back! Plug and play wireless sensor goes inline with your headlight so the camera and Bluetooth speakers automatically turn on and off when you turn on your bike! One charge lasts 7 days so you only charge your helmet (standard usb plug) once a week. Use the app to review video, change settings, and update firmware

I don't think a 12lbs helmet will be comfortable but good luck with that  >:D

Interesting idea but I personally don't ride enough on curvy roads in the dark.  LED upgrade on my Ninja was worth a million bucks though; the stock headlights were so bad I could see more with a candle LOL

The H2 SX has cornering lights I believe; maybe it will become more of a trend?

Someone, I think JL Speaker, makes a headlight that angles the beam based on lean angle. I saw the demo at a trade show when it was introduced and it was cool, but since something like six or seven hundred dollars.

This would be a good lower price alternative if it works but is it really necessary? I ride Santiago every night on the way home and my beam is wide enough for that road. Maybe if I commuted on Latigo it would make sense.

Fantastic idea! All I need is to come up with $85,080 by middle of next month.
I've ridden across ACH at night and almost hit a young deer going around one corner and three corners up mama took a kick at me as she trotted across the road in front of me!
Hwy. 18 to Crestline at 4 am is scary when you lean over and can't see the road. If I didn't know it like the back of my hand, I would have to ride in the daylight only.
Perhaps Honda will come up with an ingenious design to put on all motorcycles.
I'd put the JL Speaker model in my Fury but, riding across Latigo Canyon Road is too much brain sloshing with a 663 pound bike.

Aww címon, I used to slog my VTX through Latigo. I just left my brain back at home.

I just like cool gizmos and stuff. I don't night ride often enough to justify it though even if it does work.
