Re: A thread about nothing...

Well...the originator of this thread has elevated (slightly) his esteem, in my view, by acknowledging he has posted a "thread about nothing!" I belong to several forums and have seen many threads about nothing and the person posting clueless that it was a thread about nothing.

Since this is a thread about "nothing", I have "nothing" to add!

I left the amp in-place; not sure if it's needed for anything else or if the system will go bonkers without it (i.e., give out a bunch of warnings on the dash). I already see some errors when I run a scan with a 911 telling me something about the speakers not working or what not.

I have a HaloCam M1 dashcam on my bike and I have installed the DVR unit inside the right stowage bin. I removed the wiring from the bin, covered the connectors, and ran the wiring back towards the front of the bike. The DVR isn't waterproof but has a silicone sleeve that helps protect it a bit. So far, in several rides with some considerable rain, the DVR has never gotten wet.


Oh dammit...now this thread HAS BECOME SOMETHING!

Six inches is usually a light dusting in lake effect West Michigan. This happens to be wet, heavy, and slippery. I was glad I had not gotten around to removing the snow tires from the cars yet. The BMW will stay in the garage a day or two.

Re: A thread about nothing...

I will echo Hopz. I have the music stick working, Nav VI talking to the helmet com, got new tires on last week. My new-to-me 2014 R1200RT is ready for its first long adventure.

And there is six inches of snow in west Michigan.

Re: A thread about nothing...

I was going to follow this thread, but since my bike 2014 is great... she has no issues, no problems I think I won't.

The link to my USB Stick works as it should. Link from my Nav 5 is perfect. Battery is 4 years old and perfect too. Starts at the mere suggestion. Radio AM/FM perfect.

New tires (Pirelli Angel GT's) are really sweet.

Thinking of going back to something with more... issues....

Enjoy your day.
I know what you mean.
