Unfortunately, I'm techie by nature.....and love things that blink and make sounds.
Over the last year, a slow snow-balling of gadgets has come into play with me while riding the 919. Been riding for many years with many different bikes and its always only the bike, the road, and a good set of ear plugs.
What started this snow-balling effect?
First it was simply and truely un-intentional..... Pandora Internet radio on the I-phone is an amazing thing..... so, I started wearing ear-buds connected to my I-phone in my tankbag on longer trips....... then came the need for a power source to power the I-phone to keep the battery from dying on these long trips..... hense the new cirgarette lighter adapter on my handbar.....
Now that I was starting to take these longer trips...... I needed a heated vest, with a temp controller..... yet another gadget.
For Christmas ---- I was blessed with a new GPS, which has routing capabilities, which now allows me to create routes on MapQuest and import them in.........Which has led to a handlebar RAM mount & a hardwire power cable.
Now ---- what if I could get rid of the wires? which has led me to a new/used Chatterbox XBI Bluetooth helmet interface, which wirelessly streams all these audio sources to my helmet.....
Well ---- if I'm now on these long trips..... wouldn't it be nice to mount my Passport Escort 9500I to my bike ---- and ALSO transmit Radar audio signals to my helmet! (I'm seconds away from ordering a Slipstreamer Radar Detector handlebar mount, Bluetooth audio transmitter, and an Escort Hardwire cable)
Where do you all draw the line!!!!
