Joel, that was ment as a joke! No spanking intended, just giving you ideas on things to practice.

I have a couple buddies that were riding in West Palmdale after a rain. The fireroad was completely washed out. About six feet deep. The one that tried to jump it cased the other side and crashed. The other got on the brakes and endoed in to the wash. When the one who cased it got up and gathered himself, he saw the other bike but no rider. Found him walking down the road a mile and a half away. Still had his helmet on. Talk about getting your bell wrung.

The spot rep hinted at this at the Long Beach motorcycle show but could not spill the beans. My Droid is ready. The last line of the 2nd page of the spec sheet notes

Compatible with Android platform 2.0 or later.
