Harley-Davidson-Livewire-Gear-Patrol Harley-Davidson Project Livewire
And you thought the V-Rod brought Harley Davidson into the 21st century. HD has something even greater in mind with Project Livewire, its first all-electric motorcycle concept. The details right now are hush-hush, but the look alone — with gobs of stealthy matte black in the beefy frame and body, along with some tasty red bits — is the right blend of futuristic and sinister. Harley-Davidson will soon begin a nationwide tour to gauge the public’s interest in the new bike. We say build it. harley-davidson.com
Winnebago-Brave-Gear-Patrol Winnebago Brave
Few products make us want to blast “Going Mobile” and take up the gypsy lifestyle like a decked-out Winnebago. Their new Brave incorporates retro features — the iconic “brow” over the windshield and Winnebago logo, among others — on a modern Ford F53 chassis with a 6.8L Triton V10 that churns out 362 horsepower. The ‘Bago can be had with two floor plans, ranging from around 27 to 29 feet in length, both with six feet and nine inches of headroom, so it’s as roomy as it is handsome. Although it looks vintage, it has all the tech and features we expect in 2014, so it will be ideal for cooking the perfect meth steaks. $95,200+ ()
Apple-iMac-Entry-Level-2014-Gear-Patrol Apple 21.5 Inch iMac
If you’ve been wanting an iMac but don’t want to pay nearly $1,300 you’re in luck. Apple recently announced a new version of their desktop computer that undercuts the original base model by $200. The drop in price does come with a few downgrades: the processor is now a slower 1.4GHz Intel Core i5 processor (compared to the previous base model’s 2.7GHz), and users will lose the ability to upgrade the standard 8GB of RAM. The rest of the iMac remains mainly unchanged from the original base, but the loss of computing ability probably won’t deter future users with basic computing needs. $1,099 ()

Music-Freedom-Gear-Patrol Music Freedom From T-Mobile
T-Mobile users now have the opportunity for free music on their mobile devices — sort of. Music Freedom allows users to stream music with apps such as Rhapsody, Spotify and Pandora without incurring the wrath of monthly data allowances. Implications about net neutrality aside, this is sure to please many T-Mobile using audiophiles. t-mobile.com ()
