Mission-Motorcycles-Mission-R-Gear-Patrol Mission Motorcycles Mission R
The Mission R would be stare-worthy even if it were just a normal screamer. This cheaper version (yes, $30k is cheap in this instance) of the electric, race-ready Mission RS is powered by a 160-hp liquid-cooled three-phase AC motor; the base model’s 12kWh battery provides a 102-mile range, which can be bumped to 17kWh (140-mile range) for some extra dough. Its big brother does 0-60 in three seconds, and the R shouldn’t be too far behind. $30,000+ ()

Ray-Ban-Box-of-Stories-Gear-Patrol Ray-Ban Box of Stories
Embracing their “Never Hide” spirit, Ray-Ban commissioned four artists to make comic books that market some of their new sunglass styles. The artwork is worth a look, as are the new glasses, but questionable text is reminiscent of a high school Spanish textbook. box-of-stories.com
