Looks like a cool tool. I love the large screen. I was reading the specs and they say it has A-GPS? Does it read satellite signals too?

Yes, it's a real GPS. Supports both GPS and the Russian Glonass system. And if you've never seen a Glonass, you've never seen an ass. . .

What's going on? ADV in decline?

I'm posting this here because I know many of the people who have responded to this thread, and trust your opinions.

I've noticed that there is a lot more hostility and general BS going on in this forum (not in the Canada thread, you guys and gals seem to have been brought up properly for the most part.)

I joined ADV because a lot of the posturing, dick-swinging, and malevolent behavior I'd seen elsewhere didn't exist here. Riders didn't care what you rode, as long as you were riding. If you had a problem, someone was willing to help you out. Over the past years, it's been a genuine pleasure to ride with many of you, and host you at my home from time to time.

Reading the ride reports from motorcyclists all over the world and penning a few of my own has been a further pleasure.

I've been seeing a lot of threads and/or responses to threads that are really disturbing. For example, the "my bike is great and yours sucks" contingent. Worse, there are people who dispense with the bike issue completely, and seem to revel in personal attacks.

This has got to stop. Either we'll need to start condemning this sort of behavior as inmates, or it is going to damage the forum. We can't expect the mods to do the job alone. Everywhere this has happened on other forums, it's damaged the experience as a whole.

Thanks for listening.

I don't know which threads you're reading but all the ones I participate on are very well moderated. People trying to take sides and put down the nasties only inflame the battle, IMHO, no matter how well intentioned the responders may be.

If there's a need to report a post, I just click the "Report!" at the bottom left of the post in question) and do so.

But we'd already determined that my bike is better than yours, hadn't we?

Not only is your bike better, you're a far more experienced rider than I, and have a keen eye for poetry, wine, and the fair sex. We're gentlemen all, and there's damn few of us left.

However, if I have to read another post that indicates that I need a million horsepower and sixty inches of suspension to enjoy myself, I may take up crochet and stick at home just to piss 'em off.

Aw shucks.

Take up crochet? You're not already an expert? After all that knitting machine chatting with Stephanie at the KOA in Renfrew, I assumed you were a master in all the creative arts.

Me? I'm a bloody fookin' genius in the fiber and woodworking fields. If you saw my rugs, you'd be in awe. I do Krokbragd.

Crochet is not my mettier. The interlacement is very complex and the process too slow for my taste. It was the last of the fiber arts developed, and only came into its own under Queen Victoria in the late 19th century. It has some parallels to an early Viking technique called naalbinding (may very well have misspelled that), but is not completely similar.

Aren't you glad you asked?

Now can we please get back to dick swinging, horsepower and suspension?
