I like those new Decals. Nice work.

I got out to the garage and mounted up my phone to the bars so I can use the Rally Nav app to check my speed. eventually I'll mess with GPS on the phone or not.

Try out MotionX GPS. There are two versions -- one called "Drive," which is for roads, and then the other, which is a terrain GPS. There is a way to e-mail yourself GPX tracks and download and store maps. I used it with great success on the Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route. I actually could not have done the route without the app.

Tried to take a short cut and just move my bike in the garage a small bit without moving my truck first. Trying to install Touratech side stand plate. This will be the most expensive farkle as a result.

Bike got off balance and fell over away from me. Rear rack sliced the passenger side door of my truck.

Yes I have that app on my phone. I installed it back when I was on business travel so I had something to play with. I'll check out those version. I have not looked at it in a long time.
I had the Track version. I loaded the road one too.

What mount are you using?
Mine doesn't provide for power, but I can pull it and charge it while riding in known areas, or fire up my boost batter thingy. This Wahoo Fitness proteck case is funny they pull it behind a Porsche. The video was too funny not to buy the case. They have a woman holding the case while they hose her down with a garden hose.

Same exact thing happened to me.

When my wife noticed the scratches a few days later, I told her I had no idea how it happened.

Doesn't KTM paint actually improve the value of a Dodge?

That mount was an iPhone 4S Lifeproof case and handlebar mount. The case is waterproof to six feet. I didn't like the face of that Lifeproof case because it puts a plastic cover on the screen that causes an odd reflection that makes it hard to see in direct light -- not what you need in a motorcycle GPS. Now I have an iPhone 5S with the new LifeProof Nuud case that does not have the plastic cover. You just use a normal screen protector, and it's still waterproof down to six feet.

The power comes from a power port that I put in the bike. I bought a hard wired USB port off of eBay to charge the phone while riding. That didn't work out really well. I'm going to install a standard car charger socket and just use an adapter.

One thing I can say after using your setup for a year is that if you are following tracks on your screen, the screen needs to be mounted up higher so that you can see the screen without tilting your head up and down. This view shows me riding on the BDR, and you can see my head going up and down, up and down trying to get an idea of what the track looked like ahead and to see where the next turns were. Dang near ran off the cliff at one point.


I'm planning on mounting my bar mount on a new mount attached to my screen to get it up as high as possible.

I looked at Lifeproof cases then found I could get a cadence and speedo set up for my bicycle so the Wahoo got the call.
The fact that I could use it on the moto was a bonus. Then I got more curious and went back out to the garage and poked at the case. I found a tiny removable panel to access power.
Now, I'll just plug into the outlet in the cockpit and I'm golden.
No more Garmin.

I have no problems with looking at my screens while riding. I ride pretty damned slow. CBDR is probably a four week trip for me.

I am going to get the bar that mounts to the cockpit above the speedo. Touratech part. And use a GoPRo clamp to mount the GPS lockmount for my case.
I put a second socket inside the glovebox and have a double USB plug so I've covered I guess for power besides that one i the cockpit.

It's dry and slippery here in AZ. My TKC 80 and Mefo needed a few more edges to help find traction.

The 19/17 wheels and street tires make it beautiful to ride in the city and on the highway.
