    What you're not sayin is that the Walmart versions are pink..;)

    I guess with all this shit to play with that can be strapped on a bike will not end with the latest called "Apping at the ton." I hope I just made that up..

    Got a couple of articles by Dave Hough that I'll try to C&P here on crashes and fatalities. If this doesn't work out, see the November and December issues of SoundRider mag.. Sound RIDER! - The Northwest's leading motorcycle resource. Washington, Oregon, Seattle, Tacoma, Everett, Used bikes. Several article by Dave.

    AHA! The editor of SoundRider who is a sharp dude has compiled a shitload of Dave Hough's articles that can be called up in a sequence by hitting the link. Crashes and crunches are in the November and December issues. Others are elsewhere.

    My pic of Dave and R. Pridmore shootin the breeze at SportBike NW a couple of years back.

    Mr. Pridmore BTW has a VFR. I could tell because I recognize the ass end of one especially when the bike is not all covered up with bigass boxes full of who knows what essential to every excursion..

    :doh:

    Amazing shit. Gotta love the tone of society today. Don't agree with someone, attack them personally instead of attempting to use compelling debate.

    No one ever even gave the guy a chance to respond regarding why he was attempting to do this. For all anyone knows, he's participating as staff in a closed course bicycle race.

    Compelling debate?, :flypig:

    Wonder how many guys like Blight have decided that it just isn't worth the trouble?

    or like other people, a guy could spend the energy going out of the way to start fights with folks that can't be won.

    So, I guess that "compelling debate" is you thinking you're cute by changing my avatar because I pointed out that you did exactly the same thing to Blight that was done here, and now you want to act like you are the voice of reason? i never made any derogatory comments in any of your build threads, go back and look if you don't believe me, however i can recall multiple times you have pulled your usual passive aggressive stuff with me, and unlike these guys that have left, I don't give a fuck who you think you are, or who your little group of friends are, i'm not going away and you're gonna have to deal with that fact. i attribute a lot of the current culture to you and a couple others, i only come here to return the favor.

    No doubt, with over 6000 posts, I'm sure I've said something over the line. And now as a Mod, I also hold myself to a higher standard and don't say everything that comes to mind.

    I am not a perfect person, father, or husband. I welcome people to challenge my behavior (where and how appropriate) to make me a better person and that is what my statement was here.

    Do you really think a public discussion about your issues with me is appropriate?

    I must admit I now feel a little guilty about my comment. Unfortunately it comes from the experience of being removed from a wrecked vehicle by emergency personnel due to another vehicle being operated by a distracted driver. Cell phone in this case. Davjohns does mention using the tablet as a GPS substitute for navigating Europe. Hardly a closed course.

    Although his intentions may be for the best, this really sounds like a recipe for disaster. If a person wants to jeopardize their own safety... it's a free country. Don't jeopardize anyone else's in doing so.

    I don't know Arzinator, I rode around for about an hour like this and still got lost, maybe the caliber is wrong.

    Maybe I should just bite the bullet and get a GPS.

    how the f**k do you 2 or 3 ass wipes manage to turn EVERY post you all enter into a self serving penis comparison. SERIOUSLY, go frigin look, theres not 1 post that has you group of ass hats in it that does not turn into a fisting circle jerk. grow up.

    my post had absolutly zero to do with the original posters character or reason for his decisions or anything. i just personally dislike tablets. (i am in I.T. and deal with users all day, i feel it needed to insert my opinion about anything I.T. related. good bad or otherwise. )

    If it wasn't for the two or three so-called "ass wipes", I wouldn't even read these posts.

    And speaking of ass wipes, I really like your avatar.

    Hey now , my first post all I did was give the OP a link to Ram Mounts and a snarky comment on how he could have found it himself.

    Then I just called Arnzinator out on his bullet in the mouth comment. He seemed to like it.

    Oh Shit, Ram Mounts. I see what you mean now. Sorry buddy. My bad.
