Not sure if this has been asked before but being that the ABS cannot be turned off will the center stand trick work on the DL like it works on the S10?

Put the bike on the center stand and run it in 2nd gear for 10-15 seconds. It will trick the ABS into thinking there is an error and it shuts off. It resets next time you start the bike.

That's cool, but who figures this stuff out?

When I was in college, there was a guy that figured out that if he went behind the vending machine and got a shock by putting his fingers on 2 terminals. he could get a free ice cream. He'd even take the zap for some of his closest friends.

Intercom systems... What y'all use on the Stroms? Mostly just for two riding... Something wireless maybe. Bluetooth?

Yep Sena is great. All day power, and I mean all day of listening to music and talking to riding buddies, crystal clear sound, durable. I'm a fan obviously. Get the headphone adapter and a pair of klipsch and road noise becomes a distant memory.

This lets you use your own headphones with the Sena.

Make sure you talk to Adam at RocketMoto for the ADV discount.

These are Klipsch headphones, widely popular.

Looks great but I'm not real sure how them things would stay in my ear while putting the helmet on and/or comfy they'd be after a few hrs. I tried some ear buds hooked to my iPhone before and after 15-20 min had to pull em out...

I use the Sena with foam earplugs. Keeps the wind and road noise out and the music sounds just fine.

Exactly what I use. I was using the speakers and ear plugs and that's a good solution but the klipsch setup is the best solution I've had on a motorcycle. Put them in upside down and they will stay out without moving at all. I don't feel any pain till 4+ hours and I've had them in for all day rides with minimal discomfort. Sound quality is perfect.

I used the Klipsch ear units and put the material (self forming) I aquired from Radians ro make custom molded units that completely fill my ear & keep the Klipsch's in a VERY secure ear position. Sound quality is Supurb & fit is literaly custom for You!
