This latest motorcycle product could best be described by borrowing and contorting a well-known phrase, ‘Yes, you can take it with you’.
It appears 2x2 Cycles' mission is to give bikers the freedom of using their motorcycles for more than just road trips and as a means of riding to other favorite past times as well. A quick look at the manufacturer’s website shows this includes racking solutions for carrying a bicycle and a set of golf clubs on your trusty iron steed.
The company’s latest addition to its rack solutions is the ‘MotoGrill’.
The stainless steel, made-in-the-USA MotoGrill is an attachment piece that installs on 2x2 Cycles’ existing rack platform, and extends the utility of motorcycles for convenient car-free tailgating, which they have coined the phrase of ‘fendergating’.
The MotoGrill features an adjustable cutting board that neatly stores within the product when not in use with the grill itself telescoping out when in use. This cleverly prevents the any grilling splatters from getting on the motorcycle.
This new accessory also gimbals to level so that it can be used regardless of the terrain on which a motorcycle is parked.
“The act of tailgating is integral to the free spirit inside all of us,” commented Garrett Blake, the Founder of 2x2 Cycles. “Gathering up some friends for an outing filled with camaraderie and grilling is an easy recipe for a good time. However, tailgating so far has been limited to cars, leaving behind millions of motorcyclists who would jump at the opportunity to bring the spirit of tailgating with them on their motorcycles.”
Another key feature of the MotoGrill is that it runs on propane, which means motorcyclists don’t have to worry about hauling a bag of charcoal, or removing the grill and emptying it when finished. According to the website, riders can simply park their bike, attach a travel sized propane tank and start grilling away.
The MotoGrill has a MSRP of $169.00–$435.00 depending on the motorcycle and what accessories are needed.
“Having the ability to just go out for a ride with friends, pull off, set up camp, and grill has been a dream of mine as a motorcyclist,” notes Blake, “The MotoGrill really has the opportunity to benefit everyone who has a passion for adventure, and truly wants to abandon their car.”
