Carl Fogarty is sitting pretty following a new collaboration with the comfort motorcycle riding specialists, Cool ‘N’ Comfy Ltd out of the UK.
The motorcycle parts company, based in Carl’s home town of Blackburn England, manufactures specialized Comfort Kits, designed to eradicate back, wrist and neck pain caused by uncomfortable sportbike riding positions.
The motorcycle handlebar kits feature aircraft grade, CNC (computer numerically controlled) machined billet alloy top yokes, anodised in silver, black, red and gold finishes, and are available with a specially-engraved Foggy logo.
Carl Fogarty say: "These parts are designed to create a more comfortable riding position which is a lot less cramped. I wish they had been around when I was racing."
"I always liked flatter handlebars, as I felt they helped the handling and also helped me conserve energy. Now, in the normal riding position, my back kills me after a while. But with these Comfort Kits I could ride until I ran out of petrol. And they look mint too!"
Matt Howe (of Cool ‘N’ Comfy Ltd) says: "We are proud to be associated with Carl and have designed a product to match his reputation and status in motorcycling. Carl was blown away with the difference that the kit made to his riding comfort but they also look fantastic and increase safety by expanding a rider’s field of vision."
The kits are available, only in Europe at this time, for almost all superbikes 600cc to 1400cc through topyokes.com and are priced from £235.00 (~$360 USD). The special Foggy Engraved X-Clamp fatbar upgrade is £34.99 (~$60 USD).
