I had 244's on my WR250X and loved them on that bike, also. I had TKC80's, K270's, Tourances, T63's, Mefo's & 244's.

Damn, those Shinko's are cheap!

I have the S3 and just upgraded my wife's phone and tablet to the Note 3 (replaced 2 units, an S3 and a Galaxy Tab 7). I considered upgrading to the Galaxy Active but am happy with my S3, so maybe later but not right now.

I recently bought a couple windows phones(Nokia 520), for my daughters. So far so good with those. Very fast, great on screen typing response but limited apps(not bad, just not as good Android). If someone gave me an iPhone, I would sell it, trade it or give it away. I certainly wouldn't dream of buying another.

I have the Iphone 5s, and i am pleased with it. Unless there is a quantum leap in technology between operating systems I think it is not worth the effort to transition to a different one. I will probably catch Hell for saying this but, at the end of the day, both Iphones and Androids are capable of doing the same things, just differently.

It is hard to beat the bang for the buck on 244s.

FYI those red motorcycle lifts are on sale again at Harbor Freight tomorrow thru Sun for 299.99 and I think I have found a code for an additional 25% off which makes it 224.99. If that's the case, I'm getting one.

I remember that feeling after seeing an x-ray of my leg in '08 after hitting a deer on the bike.
