I must admit, it is pretty exciting to finally get this process started.
That's awesome! I've been waiting to redo my electrical system until this gizmo becomes available.

WOW..... just wow!! every time I check this thread I am impressed at how well you have developed this product.

Hoping to get my hands on one once you start mass producing them. I am thinking that I am going to like it too much and i will be adding one to the bike and one to the FJ.

I just pulled a new Motobrain out of the mold. It looks pretty darn fair. I will use a better quality mold master for the production run so that the text on the side looks better. Still, I am quite pleased with this. I think it's a win!

That right there sir is one hell of a milestone - Fantastic!

I suspect that they will fly out the door, I for one have my finger on the buzzer for two.

have you already dialed in the price? I believe I might have missed that part.

It will come in around $300 if I am the retailer. If it goes into distribution channels instead the pricing will be up to them. Distributors have a much better understanding of how to price products than us inventor types. All I'm thinking about is how much it costs and how much I need to earn on it to make it worth my time. I am inclined to find a distributor so I can focus on inventing and not have to worry about sales, support, shipping etc. This is still all a bit up in the air though. You are watching this entire process unfold in real time. Who knows how it turns out? I'm excited to read my next post

As I have said a couple of times before this went way beyond my "need to have" list many many months ago, but if I've got $300 of spare cash available when these are ready it'll be going on my FJR. Looking toward to seeing the finished product.

Good to hear

Can't wait to see these hit the market. I just finished a week long 4200 mile run and had to re-wire two circuits en-route. One for a broken terminal on my distribution panel and one for a reversed polarity problem with my aux LiFe battery. (You know that you can vaporize a leg of an ATC fuse without blowing the actual fuse. I just found this out... )

I want to re-wire the bike and I want to Moto-Brain at the heart to fit.
