Beeline Moto is officially happening! Target hit in 10 hours

Dear backers,

As we went home last night we were tantalisingly close to the goal. So it was a great feeling this morning to wake up and see that we'd sailed through it overnight. We hit the target at almost exactly midnight last night (UK time) meaning we reached the target in an astonishing 10 hours!

We can't thank you enough for your support in getting there so quickly! 

Now the bigger news than just reaching a funding goal is that this means Beeline Moto is definitely happening. Having hit the target we know the project will go ahead. So we'd better get cracking on with preparations for manufacture!

We've still got 28 days to run so are very excited to see where we can get to. We'll have a think about stretch goals we can offer if we go bigger. If you've got ideas of things you'd like to see please put them in the comments and let's start a discussion.

Thanks again,

Mark, Tom and the team.

P.S. you weren't alone in liking Beeline Moto - check out these articles in Wired, Traction Life and OnlyTwoWheels as well as a CafeRacer podcast with Tom (recorded before we launched the campaign!)

      Maybe a way to share routes with other users via the app (so we can share the great roads we find).
      Perhaps a carry case for the beeline that we can store it in when we take it off the bike (to avoid screen scratches from keys, etc.)

      Agree with other comment. I’d like a mount for my trials bike so can use for long distant trials. Mud and water and shaking!!!!!

      And a mount for my touring bike.

      Not surprised you made the goal in under 12 hours. It's a good idea, priced well and without any competition at the price point. I am looking forward to not having my phone on my bike handlebars, despite the huge cost I paid for the mounting kit.
      I like the simple navigation approach.
      Well done on achieving your funding goals.
      Stretch goals could include multiple mounts, perhaps a cheaper strap one, to allow us Motorcycle users, to use it on our bicycles !
