Just want to say Hey and let Y'All know I'm an old man (be 68 in a couple of days) and I ride a 2000 Honda Goldwing GL1500 with a Voyager Trike kit. I'm not here to bash what Y'All ride. I've straddled Harleys, Yamahas, and one bad ass Suzuki GT550 2 stroke. Y'All ride and that's good enough for me.

The reason I'm here is I'm on a mission to beat a cheap Chinese GPS into submission and my google-fu led me here.

So, thanks for lettin' me in.

Y'All ride safe.

Welcome! Those Goldwings are freight trains on steroids... I ride with a neighbour who has a 2010... I always get a kick how he catches me on the straightaways... you just see him hammering it as he gets bigger and bigger in my side mirrors ... he's gotta be doing 100+ MPH!

Two wheelz for realz!

I found that the refurbished Garmins are a cheap alternative to new and an Ram Aqua box keeps it safe from the weather. I have 2455's and a 2589. all with lifetime maps and traffic.
Cheap works for me.
68 still makes you a kid! Maybe you been rode hard and put away wet?
