MoonBlog 9.6 & 5.1

For many Moons now, I was looking to upgrade my guitar, having had 16 guitars (and one Bass guitar) in my life so far I was looking for something different.

I knew I wanted a certain shape that felt good to my own body holding it, but should also be of high quality and perhaps a looker too.

And this time, no matter the price… kinda…

Easily said, not so easy to find, and I have had my fair share of shitty guitars, mostly because of budget issues, and also because it takes a while for me to find out if I do like something, or if it simply does not work out. So after a few moons processing I end up buying a guitar, and then a few moons later it needs to go again.

Reading my MoonBlogs one can see I have an affection for PRS (Paul Reed Smith) guitars, most say because he makes guitars that sit somewhere in between Fender (Stratocaster) and Gibson (Les Paul), and while that may be true, what speaks to me, is his openness to share about his products, his own nerdiness in going all in in finding that tone through all the little components that make up a musical instrument, his factory, and so on.

Sure some of it is marketing, some of it is ego showiness, a little american sauce over it, but it’s good, I like it. I’ve learned a lot more about guitars and guitar making through investigating about their company and products, something that is much much harder to find out about with most other guitar making companies.

So I had a vague kind of wishlist of components, or elements that my next guitar should contain, where quality was probably the most important.

Caberg Tourmax

Tourmax is the first flip up adventure on the market conceived for all the eunduro and maxi enduro motorcycles owners.

As result of the long experience gained by Caberg, the first Italian company to produce flip up helmets, the new TOURMAX 100% Made in Italy is equipped with a peak that automatically moves close to the visor when opening the chin guard in order to minimize air resistance.

Tourmax comes with the dual homologation P/J which allows you to ride with the chin guard opened guarantying safety thanks to the lever P/J on the left hand side of the helmet. This lever, when in the “J” position, blocks the chin guard in the fully opened position avoiding the chin guard to accidentally close.

Tourmax is equipped with the exclusive Double Visor Tech system that, thanks to the easy to use inner sunvisor, allows you to ride always with the right light and in safety. The inner sun visor is treated antiscratch, while the outer clear visor is not only antiscratch but also antifog thanks to the double lens Pinlock. Ventilation is guaranteed by two wide vents placed on the chin guard and on the shell that are easy to maneuver also with gloves. The air is channelled through grooves on the inner liner that ensure perfect ventilation of the helmet. The lining is completely removable and washable, realized with breathable and hypoallergenic fabric for maximum freshness, with reflective inserts at the back of the neck.

Tourmax is offered in the single colors: matt black, matt gun metal, and white metal; and in sport graphic versions SONIC with base color matt black and white.

Tourmax has a seating to accommodate the Caberg Bluetooth communication system “JUST SPEAK S” which allows to communicate not only with your own mobile phone and your passenger but also to connect to a GPS system, listen to music through your mobile or an MP3 player. Just Speak S is equipped with Bluetooth A2DP that permits to listen in high quality stereo.

Michelin Pilot Road 4

For Roadster, Sports, Sports Tourer, Trail

Outstanding on wet roads, especially when braking, MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyres are versatile and long-lasting.

Rubber that sticks to the road
An all new silica-enriched rubber compound enables MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyres to provide exceptional grip no matter what the angle, from – 5°C on dry roads and 2°C on wet roads, up to 45°C on almost any kind of road.

Last for 20% longer
Thanks to 2CT technology with brand new tread compounds and a redesigned tread pattern, MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyres last on average 20% longer than MICHELIN Pilot Road 3 tyres. These tyres feature chamfered sipe edges that help prevent abnormal wear in extreme conditions and under heavy braking.

Shorter braking distances on wet surfaces
Thanks to their new XST+ sipe technology, MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyres reduce braking distances on wet roads and very slippery surfaces like white lines and pedestrian crossings. The result is a safer, more reassuring ride.

Noticeably improved braking times
MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 Trail tyres are able to stop 17% shorter than their nearest competitor on wet roads and up to 24% shorter on very slippery wet surfaces such as white lines and pedestrian crossings.

Excellent grip
MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyres provide optimal grip when cornering because of their patented tread pattern and specific tread compounds. Tread grooving and siping also increases their ability to clear water.

Michelin always aims to bring together multiple performances. At MICHELIN, we never work on one isolated element of performance. Instead, we focus on the whole package: safety, durability and the thrill of riding… all at the same time and with no trade-offs. That’s what we mean by MICHELIN® Total Performance™, which has and will always be our difference on every tyre.
