Of topic here but Apple is on my $hit-list now. Picked up a new Nano Touch and, after getting it home, found that Apple changed to their proprietary "Lightning" mini plug. If you buy one you'll also be spending $39.95 for their adaptor just to use the thing in your car or bike.
Call me Apple Hater in Spokane.

Blackball, don't get me wrong, I don't hate Apples, they are delicious.

On the other hand, that free app from Motorcycle.com is a piece of

Everything that apple released just recently has the lightning charger. Its common knowledge. Do research before you buy. Everything from iphone 5, ipad mini, ipad gen 4, ipod touch gen 5, and the new nano.

You can shove your research advice, smarta$$ - this ain't my first rodeo and I did plenty of it. I also have three other iPods going all the way back to the original first generation.
Apple never mentions the need for any $40 adaptor (that should come with every Nano they sell).
My point was, and still is, that they made it an accessory AND proprietary (pro-pri-et-ary, look it up) so they can fornicate your hiney to the tune of $40 one more time at the checkout line.
No more Apple products for me - my a$$ is too sore.

On of the things I love about small towns and rural countryside is that folks wave. Whether I'm on two wheels or four.

I like people that aren't too cool and sophisticated to be neighborly.

I don't care who they sleep with, and usually can't tell as they go by.

I recently installed the Pingel Ultra-Slam shift kit on my bagger. It's an air actuated shifti kit that is totaly controlled by my bike's ECM. The computer makes every decision as far as shift points. Both up and down shifts. There are 2 modes. Economy and performance. I only ran my bike through the gears once in performance mode. I can't even tell you how horrified I was doing that. This thing was like riding a top fuel bike. My right arm is now 2" longer than my left. I swear to God this kit will double the torque of your motor. That could explain the 5k price of the kit. I won't do that **** again until my wheelie bars are done. In economy mode the kit is awesome. It shifts buttery smooth(compared to performance mode). It takes into consideration whether you're 1 up or with a passenger, road conditions, lean angle, altitude,attitude. sobriety,honesty, traction,grade, income, and a whole bunch of other factors you kids couldn't understand. All in all, I would highly recommend this kit for anyone who asks where and when to shift their bike. The only down side I see to this kit is rebuilding your transmission every 2 hundred miles. But, if you are so stupid you ask a question like this, that shouldn't be a problem. You probably will make it about 3 years.:h ystria:

I don't drink, just saying, darn I do something wrong again, thought you all liked wit and sarcasm.

Don't be so thin-skinned. I was trying to reciprocate with more wit and sarcasm.

Hey, you got me on that one. I actually read the whole damn thing!

I hate when the coffee comes out my nose... but I do enjoy a good laugh in the morning.
