If you live for online shopping, you live for this day. Some call it Black Friday/Cyber Monday in July (it doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as “Christmas in July” does it?). All we know is you’re about to save a bundle on so many things you need. And a lot of stuff you just want. So go ahead, treat yourself; get shopping. But first, you’re going to want an Amazon Prime membership.
We’ll be listing deals for motorcyclists for Prime Day, but to get us started, here are some deals that are already available.
We’re big fans of modular helmets here at MO because of the combination of the protection offered by full-face helms and the convenience of an open face helmet. When we reviewed the HJC IS-Max II, we felt it offered good value compared to pricer helmets like the Shoei Neotec.
The GT-AIR features an aerodynamic shell developed in Shoei’s state-of-the-art wind tunnel. It offers a built-in sun shield behind the CNS-1 visor that deploys with one quick motion.
If you like riding with your face exposed to the elements, you may want to consider getting a pair of goggles to protect your eyes. These goggles from Bertoni offer a phtochromic lens that adjusts to different lighting conditions while promising UV protection. The lenses are also designed to resist fogging and keep your vision clear.
The Sena 20S EVO headset offers an eight-way intercom with a 1.2-mile range, Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity and built-in FM radio.
These LED accent lights serve as auxiliary brake lighting for your saddlebags while adding some style to otherwise plain parts of your bike.
Here’s what you need to know about Amazon Prime Day.
Amazon Prime Day is an online shopping event offering exclusive deals and significant discounts for Amazon Prime members. According to Amazon, customers purchased more than 100 million products on Prime Day, setting a new sales record for online retailer (since surpassed by Cyber Monday last fall).
Amazon Prime Day 2019 begins at 12 am Pacific on July 15. This year, the event runs for 48 hours until 11:59 pm on July 16. So, yeah, technically that makes it Amazon Prime Days, plural, but I guess that doesn’t roll off the tongue as well.
For most people, an Amazon Prime membership cost $12.99/month, or if $119 if you opt in for a whole year. When you sign up, you get a free 30-day trial before you start getting charged membership fees, so if you only want to take advantage of Prime Day sales, you can always cancel before the trial period ends.
If you’re a student, the fees are $6.49/month or $59/year, and you get a longer six month trial.
If you have a medicaid card or an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card, the membership fee is $5.99/month, and you get the standard 30-day free trial.
With a Prime membership, Amazon promises free two-day delivery, with some cities getting free same day or one-day delivery. Prime members can also take advantage of exclusive deals the rest of the year, and get 30 minutes of early access to special lightning deals.
Amazon Prime members also get access to Amazon’s entertainment services, including movies and television shows and Amazon’s music streaming platform.

Amazon isn’t the only place you can find deals during Prime Day. Other retailers are offering their own sales, hoping to steal some sales from the online behemoth with big discounts of their own. It’s always smart to compare prices, especially when it comes to motorcycle gear, as retailers like Revzilla, CycleGear and Rocky Mountain ATV/MC may offer a wider, more specialized range of products for motorcyclists.
