At last, you can ride a motorcycle and smoke a cigar at the same time

Arizona inventor looks to bring "Cigar Throttle" to market

MESA, Ariz., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The cigar craze that peaked in the 90's isn't over.  Not by a long sight.  There are still many folks who love to smoke, savor, and enjoy them and with gas prices continually on the rise, there are more and more folks who have taken up riding motorcycles too.

But, there is a dilemma for the cigar smokers who also ride.  There isn't any good way for motorcycle riders to enjoy a cigar while riding their motorcycle... until now.

Introducing the Cigar Throttle:

The Cigar Throttle is a new patent pending device that allows a rider the freedom to enjoy a fine cigar while riding.  

Gone are the obstacles that used to prevent the total enjoyment of smoking a cigar while riding.  Many of these obstacles are known to anyone that has attempted to ride while smoking a lit cigar. 

First, the wind that fans the cherry makes it burn like crazy and wastes the sometimes expensive cigar in only a fraction of the time it should take to smoke it.  Sparks and hot ashes fly off the lit cigar and into the face/eyes. The wind causes even the best wrappers to unravel.  Additionally, hot ashes can burn holes in clothing or riders.

Also, there's the problem of what to do with the cigar when not immediately smoking it.  Where does it go?  It can only go in one of two places… either in the mouth or cupped in the left hand behind the left knee.  Where does it go when finished?  Most likely it'll end up as litter on the road or setting something on fire.

These and other problems were unacceptable to the inventors of the Cigar Throttle.  Now, thanks to an innovative new design, the cigar is contained, burns evenly and attaches easily to the tank.

The Cigar Throttle was designed to eliminate a multitude of problems by encasing the lit cigar in a billet aluminum sleeve that protects it from the wind and encapsulates it along with the ashes.  Continuous, controlled airflow that is speed adjustable keeps the cigar burning evenly and lit.

It is attached to the tank by powerful neodymium magnets encased in a protective rubberized coating.  So, no need to worry about scratching the paint

Whenever the rider wishes to take a puff, it is easily picked up and placed back down freeing up the hands to operate the controls.

Sleek, lightweight, and intuitive, it is destined to become the must-have riding accessory for cigar smokers everywhere.

The inventors are hard at work bringing this product to market and are currently in the crowdfunding phase. You can see more of what's happening and get involved yourself by visiting their Kickstarter page at:  http://kck.st/1kWOnI1
