I recently reviewed the new goggles from the Durango, Colorado based company, ICAN Industries. See the video for the full review.
At the moment, ICAN goggles are only available in shops throughout New Mexico and southern Colorado, but you can order by phone or email with your credit card. The goggles cost $25.99 and figure $6 for shipping. If you wish to order the tinted lens they are also available for an additional $9.50. The tinted lens is UV400 rated which means it blocks anywhere from 99 to 100 percent of the sun’s harmful radiation.
For mail order call or email ICAN Industries at 970-946-9974 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you tell them you heard about their goggles on Spirit Strike!

Think Brando in ‘The Wild One’, The Ramones or even Schwarzenegger in ‘The Terminator’. The iconic biker jacket. If I’m going to wear another leather jacket on a bike it’s going to be the standard. Decision made.Read More
