Garmin 220 Zumo GPS System
6. Garmin Virb X Action Camera
Zumo GPS System Garmin made their entry into the action cam market a couple years ago with the Virb Elite, an impressive action cam with HD specs that competed directly with the highest-end GoPro, but with unique GPS-enabled features that allowed integration between location-based data and video like never before. With the new Virb X, Garmin hits its second generation with a whole new design and even more features.
Garmin’s real specialty is GPS and navigation devices, so you know that any action camera with their name on it will be GPS enabled. But that’s not all – the Garmin Virb’s killer feature is G-Metrix, an internal engine with the ability to track and record location data, such as speed, acceleration, altitude, and GPS coordinates and overlay it onto the rich high-quality HD video the camera records – perfect for motorcycle riders!
Performance-wise, the Virb X is no slouch, recording rich wide-angle HD footage up to 1080p at 30fps, or slow-mo video of 480p at a rapid 120fps. Photo performance is a healthy 12mp at a 10fps burst, and the case is waterproof to 50 meters so bad weather is no problemo.

8. Ogio No Drag Mach 3 Backpack
If you use your bike to commute to work or school, wearing a backpack can be a drag – literally. Standard nylon or canvas backpacks can flap around in the wind, which can make for an unpleasant ride. The Ogio No Drag Mach 3 backpack has a hard, aerodynamic shell that allows for excellent air flow, and provides additional protection for the stuff inside. At 1125 cu. in, it offers plenty of storage space, and sports protective compartments for laptops up to 15″, iPads/tablets, and smartphones. The hip belt’s buckle is off-center, which keeps it from scratching your gas tank.

The Xena XX6 is one of the best; it combines a high-strength stainless steel disc lock with a built-in alarm. It has an easy-to-use push-down locking mechanism and a 1/4″ hardened steel pin, and the self-arming 120 db lithium powered alarm has shock and motion sensors, a maximum security key barrel, and ice spray proof body.
