Hey Beemakilla, could you provide some more info regarding the case you have your GPS in? I am looking for alternatives to the overpriced Garmin motorcycle specific units and am still looking for a suitable weather resistent / vibration reducing solution.

Great pics, by the way. They really make me miss Calgary alot, but Calgary isn't the same for me since it exploded in a mess of poor urban planning and an ocean of SUVs. What I wouldn't give for a Calgary with 750k people, and an Oilers/Flames rivalry that still meant something.

Great unit and solidly built. I agree with your assessment of Calgary, but I live in a community adjacent to Fish Creek Provincial Park and the house is 1.5 blocks away from said park. We don't have through access to anywhere else so if you turn into our area you live here or are visiting someone who does so it feels like a small community which is nice. The sprawl has gotten out of hand though!

Hmmm, i should stop crying and put some scratches on it to cover the chipping up.

Love the color scheme of your 950!

Been thinking about that myself. Looks like I have the same puppy problem that you do. Keep me posted if you make any progress.

Thanks,
Jack
