post #4337 of 4526

 

back in business fellas. while it's nice to have someone elses insurance company buy you a new bike, i really hope i'm not due for another crash for a while.

 

PS: was quickly reminded at how terrible stock exhausts are.

Anyone familiar with the Scorpio Ride system?

Seems pretty cool if it works as advertised...

Congrats on the new ride. Keep the shiny side up! Not ALL stock exhausts are that bad. I'm pretty happy with the one on my STriple.

I'm actually kind of pissed about this. I had the idea three months ago for a "fitbit for motorcycles" coupled with a route sharing community. I even contacted a developer and started pricing it out before I found out about Ride. I think the company has done a piss poor job of marketing itself so far. But yeah, I'll probably get in on that before long.

Honestly, the thing I want most from this is the tire pressure monitor shog[1].gif

You can get those cheaper. I know at least for my new bike they make sensors that fit inside the wheel that report to the ECU. There are probably mountable units for older bikes as well. Or you can just carry a small pressure gauge with you and zap the tires once a week with it like I do...

I know, i know....but this thing has an app!

Honestly...since it has an app, you should be able to avoid paying a monthly fee for half of the features.

Why not have it bluetooth sync all of that stuff to your phone and just use your phone's data connection? Obvioulsy won't work for the security features, but it would be nice if they made it an option to not keep paying.

Should also add attachments for a dashcam module...some sort of deal where it records continuously when the bike is on (just overwriting the oldest footage when it gets full).

Hmmm, I'm starting to see room for competition in this space...

This thing has got to be loud as eff.

When's it coming?

Btw - I'm not sure if you're still considering getting the Bullitt helmet but one thing you might want to consider is the lack of ventilation. That visor's gonna fog up really quickly and you'll always been cracking it to wipe it.

I thought there was ventilation holes? You have the Gringo right, does it fog up also?

And bike should be here by start of June

It does have ventilation holes but from what i hear the ventilation's minimal and it fogs up a lot.

My Gringo is shit for ventilation but I only wear it for very short distances when riding my scooter and hardly ever with the shield on.

I was on the highway this past weekend with my Arai and it would've been terrible had I been wearing the Gringo.

A dude I know got a Cyclewerks bike as well. He likes it a lot and it looks nice.
