Alright Grinch! I go into lock down with my Sales Team for a week and boom, v.2.0 up and going. I'm only bummed because i was hoping to go with "Beyond Tastee Freeze".

Enjoy the ride everyone ... heading up the coast for the weekend on my big ass bike.

Is it a sign you're getting old when the cheesburger just sounds better than the double-double?

The miles keep pouring on with the GSA, over 750 this weekend covering what seemed like half the state. Saw my first wild boar road kill on the way up to Lake something or other this morning. Yesterday took pics of elephant seals testing each other to see who king of the beach was just north of some little town on the central coast.

Riding home with a dead ipod and no way to charge it totally sucked balls. Gotta fix that problem ... the charging the ipod part.

Left mine in my bike jersey, sure enough it went thru the wash. Looks fine, but dead as a knob. Didn't realize how damn important it was until I didn't have it anymore. New one coming tomorrow, thank you Amazon.

I need to figure out how to add a couple of charging ports for my phone and camera batteries. Having both die on the second day of the trip sucked.

I can't ride long rides without earplugs and turning the ipod up doesn't help. How do you guys do it? Custom earplug/headphones? The regular earbuds have me cranking the volume so high, I'm def from wind and Alice in Chains.

there are quite a few custom ear plug companies and they all usually can do them into headphones/earbuds.
i've seen them at the bike shows, but they're spendy.

i just googled it and came up with these.....

http://www.earphonesolutions.com/beeaformori.html

I've had a pair of customs, I thought they sucked the big wangaloo.

I use Etymotic E6-i's, had a couple of pair and they are just flat out awesome.

Give Etymotic a look. Link

Cycle Gear has a 12v power outlet with all the wiring, inline fuse and a mounting bracket for under $20. Super easy to wire up to the battery. Get a USB 12v outlet plug with 2 slots in it and you're covered.

RAZR is dead on about the custom plugs/ear buds, the right set and it's awesome, but pricey. My buddy works for Skull Candy and gave me some new ear buds to try out, There stuff is pretty low end but these new ones I have are pretty damn good, I'll find out the model and let you know.
