No, just set your friction throttle lock and use the rear brake to control speed.

That's how I take moving pictures, really freaks people out.

You must have missed the part where we said to use the lanyard.

Oh great - another techno geek with a "new" idea. I bet you use a gps and abs too. You sir, are ruining motorcycling. Why not just have a machine that rides your bike for you? Then you could just play it safe and stay home.

Real men hold their phone and text while riding, only pausing to sip their beer.

Dakez - for shame! next you will be in the pro ABS crowd!

A lanyard? what an old tech solution. Only put my old british pistol or my whistle on a lanyard. Besides, when it gets caught in the chain or wheel it is going to hurt.

I prefer to tape it with duct tape to the left handguard or mirror stalk.

SIP?

Your BEER? Good grief.

Can I get you some lace texting gloves? Or would it be too hard to get your Hello Kitty crackberry out of your purse?

At least you have a beer holder.

Eric, too

Well how else are you going to drink out of a camelbak? Suck too hard and you'll just end up with a mouthful of foam.








High, slow, and right over the plate.....

I like to use my left hand for sexting, it leaves my right hand free, but I have premature punctuation.

I saw a guy try this in the Moroccan coastal desert when I was traveling to Essaouira a few years ago.

Didn't end well. Pissed off the camel, and before long, foam was the least of his worries.

Busted! But I forgot mention that I sip the beer mainly to get rid of the aftertaste from the crack pipe, and since I smoke crack the whole time I am riding - I gotta make that beer last. Usually I am texting a dealer........

I find these to be vital as part of a good text riding setup.
