Can I get a Tom-Tom "ONE" to work on a V-Strom?
I haven't been on the forums for over a year now. I moved from S. California to South Carolina (Fort Mill), near where my son lives in June of '06. My Wee-Strom has been rotting in the garage since last June (shameful, I know). Been thinking about getting into a serious trip next summer (bike sure wants to go, she told me after punishing me with a depleted battery-I bought her a trickle charger 'cause I felt so ashamed of ignoring her). Thought I'd do Alaska and the Dempster Hwy. in the North West Territories, 'cause they're there, that's why. Plus, I'm an ol' fart now and I just ain't got another half century of ridin' in me. So, yesterday (Black Friday) on buying a new hard-drive for my daughter, the store had the Tom-Tom "ONE" at less than half its regular price and there were two left on the table when I spied them and so I picked one up. Now, I own it and I hadn't even investigated what GPS device to get and for a detail-oriented planner like me, well that just isn't done. Oh well, I'm getting older and less anal now.
So, forum, here's my question. Do ya think I can get this Tom-Tom "ONE" to work on my steed? I'm open for ideas and I just know there are a lot of you smart, skilled, resourceful V-Strommers out there. Plus, I got till Memorial Day (more or less) of '08 to "git it on" with this project.

PS Any of you riders wanna do a "far north" ride?
There will always be unpredictable side effects and unintended consequences. Just ride, it's good for you.
