1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Do you use a special app for trip mapping?

    Scary stuff! And, it happens so quickly. Glad you're ok. Did you go head over heals or just lay it down? Looks like you hit something head on?

    Town Moto on Ossington. Not sure if they have a full size run but I tried on a small and a medium.

    Give them a call - their site isn't as up to date as it should be.

    Also, I tried on the medium thinking that would be my size as that's what I (used to) wear in the Custom 500. Turns out I'm actually a small.

    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.

    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 :embar:

    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...

    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).
