My favorite $12 farkle...

Scooped this on Amazon for $12... A little Bluetooth remote meant for handlebars. The remote itself can be pulled off for washing (clip remains in place) Works perfect with gloved hands. Takes up a bit of real estate on the grip but still have enough room to operate everything properly.

ps. Not sure what the resizing did to my pictures but you get the idea lol

I don't think that would work on my Flip Phone or Non toothed GPS.
My favorite 12 dollar farkle is 4 more gallons of gas to keep riding.

Hmmmmm - I had no idea they made such a thing.
I might have to incorporate that into my helmet headset plans...

Looks to be seriously in the way of the controls to me.

Why can't you use voice commands through your phone instead?

Agreed. Do you not use turn signals?

I can reach signals no problem... Keep in mind it can be mounted anywhere if you have baby hands.

Yeah it takes a little getting used to (like any changes to controls), but it's not bad at least for me!
