Stay out of ND!

I went through ND a year ago. It was...terrible!!! The smell from all the oil drilling/refining was horrible! Traffic was bad...hotels were very expensive. My suggestion, for what it is worth, is to...

After reading a lot about the new Sena 20 several people have suggested getting the "newer" model number. What do you look for when buying a set? Obviously, dealers will want to dump their older...

iphone 6 & Sena 20?

If you have this combination could you give me some insight(s) on how well the Sena 20 works. I understand that there is a newer version of the Sena 20 due to some early difficulties.

2014 Tenere

I looked at the '14 ES for 15,100...plus state sales tax. I think the basic '14 was 14,100. Why buy an older bike without the "fixes" and cruise control for a grand or two less. I wouldn't!
