Just an update on how things are coming along preparing for 'our' trip.
We bought the thermometer and clock a while back. We really like them.
We bought new bags. These are a little bigger than what we had and they are better made to stay upright when partially filled. I'm sure they will be full though. :)
I thought it would make for a much better trip if we could communicate easily instead of him turning to holler to me. I have a full face helmet and could never really hear him that well. This communication system is great. The only thing is it allows bikers and passengers to talk and listen simultaneously. That means "I CAN'T TURN HIM OFF! LOL!
He has a half helmet (prefers not to wear one and won't if he doesn't have to) and we were able to hook it up to that too. They said they didn't work with half helmets. Little do they know how resourceful we are. :)
Here is my butt buffer. YES, a butt buffer. With a bad back and boney ass I would get a tad uncomfortable even with Motrin 800 every three hours. We went to Utica and back and it was a much better ride.
Write up from site I purchased from:
Within the Motorcycle Seat Cushion is a special product developed for the medical industry, we’ve found a way to alleviate the stiffness, soreness, and lower back pain that can make a long ride endless. The Dry Polymer Core Inside the Butt Buffer Will Never Fully Compress - This Means Painful Pressure Points Which Can Develop Between You And Your Bike Seat Are Eliminated.
