Johnny Humphreys enjoys golfing and motorcycling, so it’s not surprising that the retired but still enterprising former top executive of Liberty Lake-based Itron Inc. would come up with an invention that seeks to merge the two pastimes.
The invention, called Bike n Golf, is a golf bag system that attaches to a motorcycle, and is designed to make journeying to and from the golf course as enjoyable as the round of golf itself for similarly conflicted dual enthusiasts.
“It’s one of those inventions driven by your need,” says Humphreys. Often torn between spending his spare time hitting the links or taking a ride on his Harley-Davidson, he says he realized that, “What I’d really like to do is both.”
He came up with the concept for Bike n Golf, but asked employee Michael O’Callaghan and Spokane sports-product designer Lars Huschke, whose fathers he formerly had worked with at Itron and, before that, at National Semiconductor Corp., to design and engineer it.
The golf bag system retails for about $300, and Humphreys is marketing it through a company he founded here last month named Bikengolf LLC. It includes two side bags, a center bag with an attachment harness, and protective hood covers for the side bags.
AND LOOK HERE, THE BITCHES EVEN COME IN CAMOUFLAGE FOR THE GOLFER/BIKER (or is it Biker/Golfer) THATS A FEARED THEY MAY GET SHOT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GOLF COURSE!
DAMN THE NINE VOLT BATTERIES I'M HEADIN FOR THE NEAREST AC OUTLET. Please excuse any failure to post anything else today. When I see the money Bikers will spend on Fashion and doggy runs while their brothers and sisters are murdered daily on our highways and how our freedoms are chipped away at daily with little to no outrage from politicians or Bikers I ocassionally have to call my shrink and tell him, "time for another little rest."
