About The Inventor
I'm just a normal guy like you who
loves motorcycles. I've
been riding motorcycles since I was 12 years old when
bought me my first bike. Believe it or not, it was a 65cc 2-Stroke
HARLEY DAVIDSON! No shoes were ruined at that time because the 3-speed
shifting was done by rotating the left-hand-side hand grip on the
bars. Well, that was a
long, long time ago and I seriously doubt if Harley even makes a 65cc
2-Stroke motorcycle anymore.
classic bike I had the pleasure of owning the following; Kawasaki 175
2-Stroke Enduro, Honda CB-750,
Suzuki Intruder 700, Honda VF-750 and Suzuki GSX-1100. I won't even
past Suzuki and Yamaha
dirt bikes here because dirt bike riders most likely won't be in need
of a Shiftcush for obvious reasons.
Why Was SHIFTCUSH Invented?
As an American who has also been riding motorcycles in the USA since I was 12 years old and I've also been working overseas for several years, motorcycling has become a daily mode of transportation and part of my life (along with millions of other commuters). However, there was always one thing that bothered me. While riding, due to multiple gear up-shifting actions, I noticed two recuring problems;
1) The top of my left shoe would always get ruined with black/ugly shifter shoe scuff marks.
2) If you ride a lot or go on long tours then you may also experience a soreness to the upper foot area due to the same reason!
(The funny part about it was that I noticed that many other riders obviously suffered from the same problems! How did I know this? Well, at any given stop light I saw that many of them had applied rolls of tape, an old sock, a piece of cloth, etc. to their gear shift levers. All these facts were telling me that something should be done about this gear shifter problem asap).
This is what
lead me to develop and invent the, SHIFTCUSH.
Simply put, it is a MOTORCYCLE GEAR SHIFTER
It can be easily installed on your gear shift lever in
seconds and without the aid of tools. See packaging
and Installation Instructions here! For Metric bikes it is
best to put a few wraps of black electrical tape on your shifter peg
before installation. This will insure a nice and tight fit. See details here.
For Harley Davidson gear shifter info see details here.
sitting there wondering, "How strong is that Air
Cushion?", the answer is; 'Very
strong.' That Air Cushion is made with the same technology as
those in the Nike Air-Max tennis shoes. Basketball players are
constantly jumping and landing hard on those. In fact - I was told by
the manufacturer that you could even
drive your car on top of one of those and it would still be ok.
So.. I did exactly that - twice in fact [and on not just one but
several different air cushions] - and to my amazement even the weight
of a 2,000 pound car didn't phase them
one bit! Now, that's pretty strong.

was recently put on the market as a test
in Singapore in it's simplified form
[it was a simple plastic base with a foam cushion and attached via two
tie-wraps] did have a good response [over 1,000 units sold in less than
a year with no
marketing]. I can honestly say that, everyone who has tried it, loves
it! It's cost is inexpensive so everyone can afford it! What's a nice
shoes and shifting comfort worth, anyway? In my personal opinion I feel
that you simply can't
put a price on your shifting comfort!

How Do I Describe Shifting While Using
You, as a
motorcycle rider, have been shifting all your life WITHOUT a Shiftcush
but once you install a Shiftcush on your motorcycle gear shift lever
you will be simply amazed at
the difference! In short - the difference is like DAY and NIGHT! If...
notice I said, if...
you could imagine having a motorcycle that has the shifting comfort and ease as an automatic transmission
then this is the best and only way for me to try to describe the
difference and pleasure while shifting with a Shiftcush on your gear
shifter lever! Yes, it's that good!
Simply put - Once you try riding and shifting with a
Shiftcush you will NEVER WANT TO RIDE WITHOUT ONE AGAIN! We can
guarantee you this 100% and if for some reason you're not completely
satisfied then just mail it back and we will refund your money back!
