    Re: the van...I fueled up alongside a lifted Mercedes Sprinter and started having similar “hmmm’s” - room for a bike and a bed. What more do you need? Do I hear “Divorce papers and 7 less years of child support” ?

    It had that twitch throttle and stalling when pulling away from a light issue. The typical KTM lean thing. I found that the EVO1 maps for the Duke were the same number as my bike, so I backed up his maps and . . . then I put my maps in his bike. He now has the world’s first Enduro-Duke. :lol3 With the cold here, he had to set it on the riches setting (#2), but it ran stupid good.

    I had to take my work transit in to the shop a while back, threw my 250 in the back to ride home from the shop. To bad I don't have the cash for my own.

    I did like my 2014 freightliner sprinter much more than I like the 2016 transit

    I'll have to see. It's tempting! This one is nicer than my house:

    My mom has one similar to one of those and she loves it. And hers is a diesel too, as she's in Europe.

    New screen color added to my beta app. Everybody needs a little Purple Rain every now and again.

    Any possibility of enabling it to run in Portrait mode?

    It's very well thought out and executed

    Let me make a note of it and see how strong the request is for the change. It would require a button, and one of the ideas of the app is to keep the interface totally clean with no visible interface. But, if the demand is large enough, I'll make portrait happen.

    Couldn't you just use the "twirl" motion to make a 90 degree turn, instead of a 180 degree turn? Obviously you'd have to have the layout figured out.

    The current display orientation is another of the things which should be saved along with the other state items, such as color, etc., so that it doesn't have to be re-set every time you run the app.

    I'll work on it. I tried that originally along with the flip, and I was getting tons of random crashes.
