I am presently on a quest to get my gear connected. My iPhone to pump music and phone calls into my helmet, and my ChatterBox HJC-FRS so that I can communicate with other riders and my passenger. I do listen to music on long rides to break up the wind noise, but don’t really plan on making phone calls while driving. (probably just listening in on early morning conference calls) So how am I going to do this? The obvious solution is to use the equipment I already have and modify it to meet the requirements. So here’s the inventory. EDIT: This cable may break your ChatterBox. I have discovered that the Microphone circuit on my ChatterBox no longer transmits! I do not know if it was this cable that did it…
A month ago I noticed that my father-in-law’s Honda Civic had been tampered with. I wasn’t sure if it was done by the previous owner or when it was parked at my house. Then yesterday when I was filling my tank I noticed my car had been tampered with too.
I am constantly surprised by the attire that I see fellow motorcyclists riding around in. Early on I had a very strong opinion that more protection is better than less. As a longtime bicyclist I was well aware of the results of laying down a bicycle on the road, and these crashes didn’t even involve cars, 350lbs motorcycles, or speeds over 50 MPH. Let me illustrate why I think protection for motorcyclists is highly underrated.
I would be remiss if I didn’t give mention to this other great site for routing and searching for bicyclists: Check it out. It’s a similar service to Bikely, but a little slicker site, and it seems more heavily used. Thanks to Nils Talbot for suggesting this site to me…
There’s great design, and there’s good design.
Carver Engineering has developed technology for vehicles that will enable 100mpg with 100+mph, and a +350mile range…Sounds fantastic!
I just found this fantastic mash up site for cyclists called Bikely.com. You can map routes and share them with other riders.
This is a map of the route I ride to work.
