Sitting there in all its Shoei neotec flip front sena comm Bluetooth newness. The bloody instruction books for the sena is bigger than the book for the bike. Have got it talking to both my phones,including the sat navigation app on my Nokia.  Volume is a bit quiet. Done a whole 15 miles in it so far but riding 600 miles home on Friday and we'll see how that goes.

Very nice! Money's good on this job then  8)

My Sena volume fluctuates annoyingly. My old Autocom was spot on at all times  :(

79000 on Friday on the way back from Amsterdam
Company on the tunnel train

Promised myself a half decent meal but services were closed for refurbished so meal deal and a pee in the bushes.

Final leg from Exeter was a traffic free blast almost zen in places. I've been wasting time on this bike., as an very high speed cruiser it comes into its own. After 450 or so miles down, the final 100 plus got polished off in an hour more comfortably than the preceding couple of hours.

Have sorted my Sena volume issue after a tip from my son but need to practice a bit more

There was a volume setting in the app that I had missed to maximise the increase in volume as background noise increased.  Also a setting in Google maps on my phone to allow the spoken directions volume max "may damage your hearing" that I hadn't found

Love it Martin. Simply love it....

And as for the surreptitious selfie over the shoulder. Just side-splitting.

Been catching up on the record spreadsheet this week. I'm on holiday and have misplaced a few receipts at home, but it appears that the new MRA Vario screen is adding a couple of mpg to the fuel economy on the motorway (2500miles ave mpg +2 ave speed +3mph compared to 3 year average). I recorded my best ever figure doing an M5 M4 M25 M20 trundle to Holland a few weeks ago - a freakish 54.83mpg. This was a Good Thing , because in the same period I also recorded the highest ever price I have paid for petrol - £1.64 a litre in Holland, and £1.55 a litre at Exeter services.

80000 up





On the road from hell somewhere near Gent

After knocking off the 300 miles up from Falmouth to my parents in shropshire on sunday evening, 520 miles from parents in north Shropshire to Haarlem in 8h14m plus an hour in Eurotunnel and petrol stations according to google maps spy in the cab yesterday afternoon.
 I now have a nippy Normans extension lead from the power socket to a ciggie lighter socket and can now plug my personal samsung phone in as a sat nav. However it seems to choose when it wants to talk to me resulting in a few roadside checks of the piece of paper.
The Sena headset will Bluetooth to both my phones which is also handy as most people have my work number.
 I have also invested in a valve extender which makes checking tyre pressures a doddle.
 The new screen works badly in strong crosswinds (M40) well in low position at vaguely legal speeds in calm still air with little traffic turbulence, and well at illegal speeds with blade extended out but still paralell to main screen.The european roads were very quiet last night, most heavies park up, (apart from one arseh*le who tried to tailgate me in a restricted speed section at Antwerp. I nearly tore his mirror off, was a bit annoyed) so cool still air was a pleasure. Screen definitely boosting fuel economy.

Hmmm, that average speed is a bit of a give away. Tricky to get much beyond 50mph average or so on UK roads.
Or is it purely dual carriageway/M'way work?

The only corners I saw all day was when I was frightening the locals around those tight radius junction bends the Dutch and Belgians seem to like. And they have a 130kph limit (here and there officer)
