The 12V adaptor is $20, and has the standard 12V car plug. The RAM mount is also $20. Pretty standard accessory prices.

I think it's a pretty terrible GPS for automotive use, but for dirt riding and hiking, it seems great. The weather feature, which is going to run you $10-20 extra a month depending on XM subscription, is just too cool.

I wouldn't put much stock in it working flawlessly, or the ease of use as far as maps go, the reviews are pretty terrible. I think it's worth working around for the price however.

a little ebay research says you won't lose much money on it if you don't like it

I flagged it so it may be gone by now.


Here's the response I got to my email:

Quote:
Hi,
the bike is in great condition, has been properly maintained, has never been laid down or abused in any way. it comes with a clean title and the price I'm selling it for is $3100, which is including all charges.
I used to live in Tacoma but I'm currently working in the UK (London) and I'll be moving here permanently within the next few months and I can't afford the luxury of taking the bike with me so I decided to let it go.
I'm using a privately-held company called Safehouse Ltd. to sell this bike, I left it at their warehouse before leaving to the UK. they are supervising the entire sale process from payment, shipping with a 14-day return policy, title transfer service or/and (if needed) returns and refunding.
if you want to purchase it, let me know and I will explain you how the company works and how the transaction will be handled.
Thanks
I wish they'd at least try to be original.

Damn I just bought those 3 weeks ago for full price, so far I got to say they really don't look that bad and work well. They fit right over the BMW handguards, down side like probably with most any of the mitts is your normal hand movements to use turn signals/horn is not a easy, but no problem for me with brake/clutch/throttle.

Hand mitts, only $10, the best thing I have ever bought for my bike. I paid $15 last year.

AND, these, which have survived a dozen crashes, and work flawlessly, I paid $40 for on sale at Cyclegear last year. They are onsale for $45 at CG right now. You can not go wrong at $31.

Flagged ??

here it is:

Have a bowl full of leftover turkey. Think my family is turkeyed out.

Still good, top layer is getting a little dry - but I'm sure would be good making into a soup or pot pie.

Free for pick, would like gone ASAP
