As the weather gets warmer it is time to get that bike out of the garage and start planning touring trips on the weekends. This is especially true in the northern regions where we suffered through a snowy winter. It’s time to get together again with friends and plan weekend outings. If you want to meet up with other riders and make new friends, the Cyclefish.com website lists the major rallies and bike weeks around the U.S. between now and end of 2023. The organization has close to 43,500 members, photos, blogs, businesses and lists over 44,000 events.
These events include rallies, biker parties, poker runs, rides, charity and benefit events, motorcycle swap meets, bike shows and more. It is a great source for information and to learn about what is going on. Getting there is another story. In the old days you had to prepare for a trip by looking at paper maps and charting your route. Today, you have a GPS that keeps you on the right path. Some bikes like Harleys come with a Road Glider GPS built in already or the BMW Motorrad series. Or you can fit a GPS such as a TomTom or Garmin on your motorcycle handlebar to guide you.
However, many devices have a very weak display that washes out in direct sunlight. You are left struggling to read the screen, and you may miss exits or get lost. Although some navigation systems come pre-installed with a protector film, it is no match for the strong sunlight, even when the LCD screen settings have been adjusted to the optimal. To deal with this problem, some bikers started wearing polarized sunglasses or helmets with anti-glare shields. This did not solve the problem and to some extent, it made it worse.
The DayVue anti-reflective screen protector is probably the best answer on the market to help you solve this problem. It is manufactured to make it possible to view the display screen when the sunlight hits the display. The film traps glare so you can read the display and because it uses circular polarization technology, it works even better when you wear polarized sunglasses or use an anti-glare or polarized face shield. Your screen also gets extra protection from scratches and burnouts from exposure to direct sunlight. The editors at Consumer Motorcycle News tested the NuShield film and were very impressed by its performance.
This same film was created for the US military to help soldiers in the battlefield read their electronic device display screens. It has stood up to the harsh environments in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is also used by the Andretti Autosport Grand Prix racing team who installed the DayVue film on their in-car digital dash to help Formula One racecar drivers read their displays in bright sunlight. The open cockpits and polarized helmet shields made it impossible to read the display prior to installing the NuShield DayVue film.
The NuShield screen protector uses a light tacky adhesive that can be easily installed. It also does not leave any residue behind if you need to remove it. The extra screen protection is essential for your GPS screen. With several motorcycle rallies planned for this year, you can’t miss taking the DayVue anti-reflective screen protector with you to get an edge.
Just go to the NuShield website and select the manufacturer of your bike or GPS from the “Brands” pull-down menu. Then look for your GPS model. The film type you need is the DayVue. Then just place it in your Cart and check out. It’s simple as that. It is time to start getting your bike ready for the summer. Order your NuShield screen protector today!
