I still want one and was thinking about getting the new one that you can access with bluetooth from a smart phone, then I saw how much their messaging plans are... think I'll grab a simple orange one.

Head out West!
I'm going to AZ/UT in May. Or is that to far for the approval of the War Department?

Yeah, too far for this year. Maybe next year.

I'm pretty sure I'd have had to sit there for 10 minutes dazed too! insane. Just glad he didn't follow his bike!

Of course another thing where the spot trumps any phone solution, is when riding places like he was. I imagine cell service can be... nil out there. Of course, you won't catch me riding in places like that so :P

Yes, it could have been a lot worse for him. He seems to have recovered well and I'm glad for that.

Akshooally, that road looked pretty fun! I bet if we could ever get you out there, you would love it!

Yeah, the simple orange ones are what Van's has. I think it's the same as DQ's. I don't see a model number on it, but the copyright on the bottom of the box says 2007; I think it's working fine though. Like Anti, I hope I never have to use it.
