“ONE OF THE MOST PRACTICAL AND NEEDED ACCESSORIES EVER SEEN FOR THE HARLEY” – BORN TO RIDE MAGAZINE
During Biketoberfest, Born To Ride wanted to do an industry report on one of the most practical and needed accessories ever seen for the Harley-Davidson motorcycle; Love-Jugs Cool Master Engine Fans.
Everyone knows how Harleys run hot and these amazing quick-install devices are the answer to all over-heating problems. As a demonstration, Love-Jugs had a Harley motorcycle running idle for 10-12 hours constantly – morning to night – without shutting it off! Never did it overheat and in fact, it ran 100 degrees cooler than normal thanks to the Love-Jugs Cool Master System.
Ron: So Rich, we’re here at Love-Jugs knocking it out of the park, man! What do you think?
Rich Renaud, Sales and Marketing Director of Love-Jugs:
We’ve been installing bikes since 8 a.m. this morning. We had guys waiting for us. We’ve got them lined up about seven-deep and we already have a bunch scheduled for tomorrow. It’s going tremendous and we’re very, very happy with the way it’s going. We’re already sold out of our cool master line and have a few left of the others. It’s been a great two-days here so far! It’s going fantastic, the product is terrific. The biggest thing is that we’re showing the people how hot a motorcycle can get and when you turn these Love-Jugs on how cool it can keep your motor; between 100 and 115 degrees cooler than it should be. Keep your oil pressure up where it should be, it’s just a fantastic product that we’re really excited about the whole thing. The Harley-Davidson product has always had a hot-running motor and they are trying to correct it by doing water-cooling and everything else. It’s still a hot-running motor. I think we have the only product in the world that will actually cool down that motor between 100 and 115 degrees and not have to have fancy oil coolers and things like that. It does a great job on the hottest part of the motor where it should do.
Rick Cook, Vice President of Distribution
I’m the kind of guy where you have to prove to me that certain things work. So I bought a pair of Love-Jugs and I bought a pair of Super Cool Minis when they came out and I’ve got no more heating issues, no more oil temperature issues with my bike. I have Ultras and a motorcade service bike that I use for escorts. It’s dropped the oil temperatures on the bikes and also dropped the cylinder head temperatures and the bikes are running a lot cooler. I don’t have any more heating issues with my lady friend that rides with me on the back. It’s just a great product. I can’t speak enough about it for the simple reason I farm for a living and I’m a firm believer that a product has to be proven to me. And this product has proved to me enough that I got involved with the Love-Jugs brand and helped bring it to the market and get exposure for it because I feel like it’s a need everybody has that owns a Harley bike. There’s enough 3-3.5 million bikes across the United States and around the world that are sold that have heating issues. When you do fuel changes on your bike or exhaust changes on your bike, you think those changes are going to help. But you still have a cylinder head heating issue, an oil heating issue, the Screaming Eagle – some of the bikes are experiencing heating issues. Here at Biketoberfest, we’ve probably done about 70 installs. I would recommend Love-Jugs because it’s a non-failure item. It’s a water-proof, stainless steel, chrome-plated item that you’re not going to have any rust, you’re not going to have any deterioration. These fans don’t have a lot of weight so we went to a Grade A System recommendation after talking with bikers, Dave, Steve, and myself and have developed a bullet-proof system that will cool your bike.
Steve West, Chief Executive Officer of Love-Jugs
Hi, I’m Steve West, and I’m the CEO of Love-Jugs. We are doing unbelievably well. People love them! They are buying them, we are installing them, and it’s been non-stop all day long! We’ve been here for three days now and the biggest thing is the Harley that will not get hot. We’ve got that running nine hours today and it was running nine hours Thursday and Friday as well. People gather around amazed thinking it’s crazy to be running a Harley at idle for nine hours. You just can’t do it! It will burn up! But the temperature has kept under 250 at the end of the day, the first day was 246, the second day was 248. So that Harley is just refusing to get hot under these conditions with the hot sun beating down on it! It’s phenomenal! I’m very gratified that we’ve worked long and hard to get Love-Jugs up to the point where we have it now. We’ve sent to customers all over the world and every continent except Antarctica – I’m not expecting to send one to Antarctica – but they are going to Dubai and Kuwait, all over Europe, South America, Central America and everywhere across the United States. And Canada is a very big market that surprises me because it’s cooler up there most of the time. But these guys in Canada say ‘We are going on trips and our bikes run hot. We want the Love-Jugs!’ We’ve opened up dealers now. We’ve opened up some of the largest dealers in the country. Rossmeyer’s — we just opened up. We’re here at their show; San Diego Harley-Davidson we just opened up last week — J & P Distributor we just opened up … and we’ve never, ever solicited a Harley-Davidson dealer! What happens is our customers are so excited about the different transformation that Love-Jugs makes on their bike, that they go to these Harley dealers and they say, ‘Hey look what we’re doing! Look what this is doing to my bike!’ Harley dealers or J & P gets in touch with us and it’s a lot more powerful for our ability to sell when they are coming to you and want your product. Just get in touch with me directly at: email@example.com. Be sure to put the dash between love and jugs. I will call them if they give me a phone number. I will be happy to speak with them in any way, shape or form anytime. I’m 75 years old and Dave is 63 years old. There was an old-fashioned way of doing business with a handshake, and trust and having a relationship. If you look on our website, you look at the testimonial section. There you’ll see person after person saying, ‘greatest product ever,’ ‘great service,’ we’ve never dealt with a company that has great service like you!’ So, we are good to deal with. We give a 30-day money back guarantee – no questions asked. So on top of the warranty, if you don’t like the Love-Jugs for any reason whatsoever, you don’t like them, you ran out of money, your wife doesn’t like them, your dog is barking at them … you can send them back and I will give you 100% of your money back AND I’ll pay for the postage coming back. Obviously, we don’t get a lot of returns.
Ron: So you can run that motorcycle all day and it won’t overheat? Tell me about that!
Dave Sandel, Love-Jugs: I can run it all day because it’s cool. You have the cooling on this so the engine will never get hot. And we have a gauge set up over there that will show you that the engine is not overheating. Of course you can’t do that with a regular Harley. It will just seize right up if you leave it there idling for a long time. But with the Love-Jugs, you don’t have that problem. Why worry about sitting in traffic and all that, you know? Why worry about the engine being hot all the time? Put them on and be over it! Love-Jugs isn’t a product you ‘want’ like fancy braids or nice pegs. It’s a product you ‘need.’ There’s a difference between want and need. Love-Jugs is one of the few after-market products that you need to have! That’s why we have such lines here waiting to get them put on!
Steve: We believe in the media. We believe in Born To Ride in particular. Born To Ride was one of the first supporters of Love-Jugs after testing them and seeing how they run and seeing how good Love-Jugs is for the customers. They came out with a tremendous amount of support. We’re getting lots and lots of customers that come to us and say, ‘We heard about you from Born To Ride.’ And our biggest customer so far is a person that was turned on by the page on Born To Ride. So we’re very happy with Born To Ride!
