    Thinking about a Sena bluetooth

    That reminds me, the holding tab for the unit broke off the base on my Sena, common problem on the first run of 20S'. They sent me a whole mounting kit for free without asking for a receipt.

    Thinking about a Sena bluetooth

    Pretty sure this is the video, I was thinking of: He rags on the Sena's and raves about the Cardo Pactalks. I actually like my Sena, so I'm hoping the eventual Cardo will be that much better. Passthrough is key as I think most of them run out of juice after 8 hours ish of music. I have a tiny...

    Thinking about a Sena bluetooth

    For what it's worth, I've been running a Sena 20S for about 5 years/minimum of 70,000km's, lots of rain included. Zero issues and it continues to work perfectly. A friend once decided to test how waterproof his was and dropped it in a cup of water, found out it's not 100% waterproof... My use...

    High mileage, but a lot of bike for the asking price and I'm sure there is some maneuverability there. '01 ST1100 with 150k km https://www.kijiji.ca/v-street-cruisers-choppers/barrie/2001-honda-st1100-very-good-conditioning-new-price/1510708194

    Also it's not just a building, it's a grain silo. Read that grain silo's are built stupid strong as there is a risk that the fine dust particles can explode. In the Battle of Stalingrad, a grain silo helped the Soviet's defeat the German's.

    Heated Gear

    Heated gear you definitely want to fit well. If it isn't close to your skin, it doesn't work. 410W isn't a huge amount, I assume the bike is probably consuming ~200W of that already, plus around 30W or so for the aux lights. Leaves you with probably enough power for a jacket and gloves. You can...

    Heated Gear

    Heated jacket will keep your core warm which is key, everything else is just nice to have. You always want to keep in mind how much power your stator puts out. A lot of bikes don't have the juice to power more than just a jacket. Not sure if Warm & Safe has any distributors, I've only ordered...

    Heated Gear

    The nice part with heated gear is the variability in temperature. I hate pulling over and changing. Without getting off the bike, just adjusting the heated gear temp, I can comfortably ride from 5C to 15C. I can do that with minimal layering and feeling like the Michelin man.

    Carrying a laptop on a bike

    Shouldn't be any real difference in reliability between a laptop with SSD and an iPad. I carry a laptop, in a simple sleeve, in my top case on every single trip and most days when I'm commuting. Glass on an old 15" Macbook shattered a good number of years ago, don't think it was caused by the...

    Heated Gear

    I love my heated gear, a mix and match of Gerbing, Warm & Safe, and Firstgear (rebranded Warm&Safe) that I mostly bought used. Warm & Safe wireless troller is the best part of it. Mounted on my front brake master, I can adjust the heat on the fly on two circuits. In my case, I have it wired for...
