This thread is relevant to my interests.

My problem is indivually wrapped LifeSavers. I either try to unwrap them in my mouth and end up swallowing pieces of wrapper (gross on both ends) and managing to get the rest of the wrapper stuck to the inside of my face shield, or I lose both the candy and wrapper to the wind.

These do not stick to the inside of the chinbar.

ORANGE PEELER- Didn't you wonder where the sticky pieces of wrapper hitting your windshield were coming from?

Should the overall size be too close to the face when attached to the chinbar use a Dremel to cut them into narrower strips.

If there isn't enough room for the desired quantity on the chinbar, try sticking them to the tank, windshield, etc. as works for you.

Think, "What Would McGyver Do?"
That is the most creative answer...SO FAR. Come to think of it I could stick several unwrapped ones to my map case on top of my tank bag. That is if I ever manage to plan that far ahead.

I gave this some thought. Some might say too much. With a little work with thin acrylic, a heat gun, and an old carb slide spring, you could build a pez dispenser type spring-loaded device, mounted vertically in the chin bar of your helmet. Jolly Ranchers are basically a rectangle and should stack well, though they might stick together after you breathe on them. Maybe slips of wax paper or plastic in between, will let you figure that out. Then you just flip up the top with your tongue, and enjoy the taste of victory. Also, if you use a pez head on the top, you'd have your little buddy smiling up at you while you ride. If it won't fit between your face and chin guard, dremel a vertical slot into your chin bar and then don't land on your face.

THAT'S the kind of ingenuity and CAN DO attitude I expect from the ADV community.

Needs to have bluetooth integrated so I can push a button on the handlebars and receive a tasty Jolly Rancher as a reward....

Excellent, free protein storage......just one question. How does one get to one's headlight at approximately 75MPH? I usually just flip up the chin bar and try to catch them with my mouth (Lightning bugs at night are the easiest by far, but my wife does wonder why my teeth glow in the dark)

Hmmm, not sure but I knew this girl once who could put two whole cherries in her mouth and then spit them out with the stems tied in a knot..........

What was it you asked again?

Powdered sugar?

Or, whatever that dust is inside a gum wrapper, if it isn't the above?

Icon might need to follow up on this and make a video of their (soon to be?) new Pez/JollyRancher dispensing Helmet!

Evidently you need to head over to the "Asshole Stunters" thread/flame-war (going on in this very sub-topic) for a demonstration of how to pick a bug off the headlight at speed.

Don't forget to bring popcorn; it's a lively one!

Set the cruise control

Put one end in your mouth, and grip wrapper with your teeth. Pull on other end, and it will spin the candy around, partially unwrapping it.

let go of the bars and use both hands .... you may have to speed up a little to compensate for the roll off ... but
