motorcycle mod hookah
I hope this is the right place for this thread.  I am a new vapist, and having a ball getting in to this.  I did wonder about a rather off the wall mod that might exist.
I am also a motorcyclist, and do a lot of long rides (1000+ miles in a day) and I was thinking it would be very cool if there was such a thing as a portable demand fired hookah with a long flexible stem that I could use while riding.  That way I could just plumb a hose to the collar of my jacket from my luggage or even a shirt pocket and draw when I wanted to without having to use my hands to press the fire button.  

If such a thing exists please point me in the right direction.  If not and one of you inventor types make one I would be happy to beta test it for you.  Wink

RE: motorcycle mod hookah
There are ways to build a 12V mod. It isn't hard - pair of wires from the battery, some sort of handle and a 510 connector to screw an atty in to. Bike electrics are around 14V after the first 10 minutes. So build coils accordingly...

Start thinking around 2-3 ohms resistance...

RE: motorcycle mod hookah
Switch - either use a relay or an FET. There is no problem pulling a couple of kilowatts from the battery. You probably want about 1-5% of that into your coils.

RE: motorcycle mod hookah
Avatar I also ride however my iron butt riding days are long over - I only manage 500-600 miles per day these days...

As for riding gear, I carry one of my mods in my jacket outside pocket and while riding I simply pull it out and have a haul..... I don't use any of my higher end mods as I would be annoyed to be on a run and find my mod slip out of my hand and on the highway.... the vape does make for a pretty cool image - couldn't get my princess to follow me in the car and capture it on the dashcam... Sad

Hmm..  I am liking this idea..  a full time mounted mod with a handy thumb button to activate.  I might even put the atty in a pressurizable  enclosure and use a fishtank pump to push the vape down the draw ..  I bet we could sell this.  

Alternatively Motorcycle cylinder heads run about 300 degrees..  drip some juice to a container bolted on there and Bob's yur Uncle..

Hey Mr. Lawyer, you don't see any liability issues here do you?  ROFL

Heck, if you really wanted to be covert you could build this *inside* the handlebars.

RE: motorcycle mod hookah
There is actually a history of this. I remember a device being marketed that injected Castrol R into the exhaust (As you can't ever use it in conjunction with any mineral oils) for the smell. This predates vaping by decades Smile

I'd not be keen on using the head directly unless it is a lot cleaner than any bike I ever ran.

It's also a bit hard to turn the heat off Smile

My iron butt days are long gone.

RE: motorcycle mod hookah
There was a mod a long time ago that plugged into the cigarette lighter of a car and was basically like an eGo twist, single button to fire, variable wattage... Can't recall the name for the life of me. But it sounds similar to what you want, it had a cable that ran from the cigarette lighter plug to the atty. Seems like something like that could be made to work by rewiring the button to the handlebars. I'm just guessing though, I've never used one of those and I'm not a biker Tongue

RE: motorcycle mod hookah
Innokin made one, but as I remember it was expensive and limited to 11W which is rather too low for most folks these days.

RE: motorcycle mod hookah
I believe that's the one I was thinking of. Shame it's so low power.
