Markbilt Racebikes SpeedAngle GMOSJI100Focusing on a rider’s performance instead of the motorcycle, the SpeedAngle GMOS JI100 multi-function lap timer and motion data logger enables real-time, scientific analysis – a fun, quick and efficient way to improve bike-handling skills.
Markbilt Racebikes, which was recently named the exclusive North American distributor, will debut it in booth #214 at the American International Motorcycle Expo in Orlando, Florida, on October 16.Mark Rozema, the man behind Markbilt Racebikes, is excited to be the U.S. distributor for SpeedAngle. He says, “It’s a very innovative product that works extremely well and offers consumers pertinent information on their riding that, until now, would cost more than twice the price. SpeedAngle has been a great company to work with and I look forward to further collaboration, helping keep this product at the forefront of the industry.”Displayed on the GMOS JI100’s 2-1/4 x 1-3/4 LCD screen is a unique and entertaining lean angle meter needle that swings left and right during cornering of up to 69 degrees, g-forces of +/- 1.5G when on the gas and braking, along with an array of lap-timing features. Pre-loaded with a choice of maps for 14 American roadrace courses, its GPS technology constantly provides speed readouts, as well as tracing the bike’s path and exact location on the street or track.But it’s not just a racetrack yardstick. The unit can be switched to a street-based mode, which shuts down the lap-recording functions, but still shows lean angle, g-force and speed information.All of the data captured is logged and stored. Lap times can be seen on-screen after each session. This information and the motion data can be downloaded to a computer via USB with SpeedAngle software for later viewing.These are just a few of the SpeedAngle GMOS JI100’s tricks. The dashboard unit and sensor on this high-tech, multifunction tool weigh a mere 15 ounces. Installation and set up take just minutes with its detailed instructions.The JI100 comes with a mounting bracket and everything needed to secure the dash and sensor. SpeedAngle offers a 1-year warranty and the device is sold by trackside vendors and dealers nationwide.The SpeedAngle GMOS JI100 retails for $489.For additional information, visit MarkbiltRacebikes.net or call 856-506-8242.Founded in 1998 and based in Millville, N.J., a stone’s throw from New Jersey Motorsports Park, Markbilt Racebikes, LLC, is owned and operated by former racer and motorcycle enthusiast Mark Rozema.

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by Yamaha. You can check out the amazing YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com. The YZF-R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too!
In this week’s first segment, Editor Don Williams takes the smallest BMW ADV bike on an urban adventure in Los Angeles. The BMW G 310 GS is a full size motorcycle with a modest engine, so of course we wonder if it is a little too underpowered and might struggle. Don put it through its paces and gives us his take.
In the second segment, Neale Bayly and Kiran Ridley have returned from the Ukraine to Paris where Kiran is based.
Kiran is an award winning photojournalist, and as an accomplished documentarian, he has covered stories as diverse as drug smuggling around the Mexican border, to the devastation of the Australian Bush Fires, to the tragedy of the Mediterranean migration crisis. Neale and Kiran reminisce about their motorcycle adventure in the Ukraine, and their observations and experiences with the incredibly resilient people of Ukraine, who have been put through such brutal hardship.
