If you are into DIYs and bikes, make sure to check out this DIY that shows you how to make a high-powered LED bike light so you can “see” everything while you ridin’.

I’ve seen camera mounts for motorcycles on the front by the steering but here’s a really radical DIY that shows you how to make a “rear” camera mount for a motorcycle that will fit on your rear peg, where normally a passenger would put his/her foot down.

No idea on what other features are available with the Di-Cycle concept, but parking this is going to be quite tricky.
