Any down sides going this route over a gps? Not having the phone in your pocket in case of a accident seems like one.
Your phone won't break in your pocket?
I've had really good luck using mine so far.
Honestly if I had the bucks I'd have a dedicated GPS but it would have to have a big color screen like my phone.

Urals take very few naps. But if they do take one its a doozy.

I am on there now.
My temp warning light is on for just a second at long stop lights.
Maybe change the coolant. Ideas? single rad, fan is running.
There is an air deflector on back side of rad, if you remove it , it will roast your knee?
bike is showroom new, bone stock, factory fill coolant
I did 100 mile ride last night.

Coolant level good still? Could try bleeding it. Could have been an air bubble trapped in it from when they assembled it at the dealership. Some bikes (like my bmw) are a pain in the ace to get all the air bleed out when you change coolant.

Where is this? Any chance you'd want to share tracks/routes?

Dreyer did not check it as claimed.
