    Hey Jim,

    How much is your packaging and postage costing you?

    I often use the Priority padded envelope, with costs a flat rate of $4.95, and the envelopes are free.

    Just thought you might like to know.

    PS Shipping is a pain!

    Thanks man! I did not know about the padded envelope, I'll check it out. That might be the way to go for a few multiple-order shipments.

    Here is what I use. link
    I would order some just to have them on hand. They take about a week, and many post offices do not carry them.

    So for those of us waiting for the next batch of cookies, i.e. don't see a JG on that list, what is our expected date of dispatch.

    Said another way, what is the expected date of dispatch for the next batch? :freaky

    Yeah, ghost. I can still have you install mine and I can listen to it purr while I'm on the mend. That's enough reason for me to keep my spot in line. I think i'M ON THE gROUP w BENCH ANYWAY. Oops. Damn broken hand. Damn caps lock. Sorry.

    Slow, I would gladly trade you. This broken leg is getting some kind of old. I had a friend come over to ride my GS. She has not been started in a month. I thought it was no big deal to slide her off the center stand and set on the side stand for my buddy to ride. As the bike rolled left and settled down, my weight transferred left, to my broken leg, &*)($!#&#$)&$#!&%^*#%!#%)(&^%$#@ still hurts. I thought I was close to getting back on the bike for some riding. Maybe 2 more weeks (I hope).

    I didn't hit a deer but a dirt/rock wall. My last time through hill country I noticed a bunch of deer by the sides of the road. Texas is taking a beating, no rain and 100+ temps.

    When you look at the unit, you'll see that one of the four corners doesn't have a thermistor protruding through the epoxy. Choosing that pin uses the bike's internal temperature probe.

    Going clockwise from the non-thermistor corner is -10, -20, -30.

    Don't drop the jumper. You'll never find it. I carry a spare from an old hard drive.

    Good news...My IICE Air arrived today.

    Bad news...I started off clueless as to how to achieve each of the settings, and have become more confused with each explanation.

    BUT. It just occurred to me...JUST as I typed the previous sentence...

    Does the jumper "rotate" around the center pin? That is, the jumper will always be fitted to the center pin and to one of the four pins that "encircle" it? If so, Geoffster, your explanation makes perfect sense.

    Also: Thanks for the caution about keeping an eye on the jumper...I'm going to try to find a spare...my track record at dropping and losing small parts that show up two feet away two weeks later isn't very good. :lol3

    Once again, this is where I mounted mine:

    This position allows the IICE Air to "see the sky" because I have the front of my seat in the high position:

    Pardon me if I missed the posting about this but how is the production schedule looking for the IICE?

    I'm simply wondering if the unit I purchased will ship to me in days, weeks, months or even sometime next year.

    Thank You

    Oh man I forgot that didn't I! :lol3

    Thanks for picking up the ball here Geoff!

    Sometime tonight I'll sketch up a quick illustration of the pin jumper orientation.
