Did you see the post where the 7xx had the PSL?
PSL = Post Speed Limit
No, I didn't. I'd be interested to see how that works and how accurate it is. And as I said before, what happens when the speed limit gets changed.
But if it's in there and accurate, that's cool.
Well, like i stated before, a lot of times, most of the times, speed limits are based on the type of road. I am sure that is what Garmin did. It won't be that accurate, but still cool.
And yes, we are going to start getting questions about it and why it isn't accurate...lol
I believe that it is only designed (programmed) for interstate hwys, and we all know that we exceed those (or get blown off by 18-wheelers). Yeh it's cool, but an a tool than anybody can do without........MHO.........
I NEVER EXCEED THE SPEED LIMIT!!!!!
Yeah, because between my house and Richmond, the speed limit on I-64 changes probably 6 times. So like I said, I'd be interested to see exactly how it works.
I'll be sure to keep you posted - having been notified that my 750 is on the way (finally).... If I'd had my druthers (and a deep pocketbook), I'd have gone for the Zumo 550. We all know that one works as advertised. Us idiots (and cheapscates) have to opt for the new technology, and hope that it works! I have been in contact with a beta tester for the 7XX, and can only hope that his testing is definitive of the final (albeit Chinese) product...........(He said with fingers crossed)..

It does?????????? Ooops! I stay at 80 all the time on 64...lol.
Hey Motercycle Momma it looks like you and asianfire live in Virginia too around the Richmond Area.Virginia is a beautiful State and the people here in general are pretty cool. The Politicians here are dopey but then there dopey all over.I,ll be moving again, so I,ll be down for awhile. I had my fourth son build me a house in Dendron Va which is in surry County about three miles from the James River ferry on ten aceas of property. the nearest house is a half mile away. It will be great to get out of Chesapeake, which is like living back in New York with all the traffic. The only Road I will be using will be RT 10 and the speed limit is 55mph all the way back into Smithfield.
We need to find a place to meet and see if our GPSrs can get us there....lol. Some off the wall place
I love to ride out in the Smithfield and Dendron areas!! Sounds like your house is in a great ares.
I do most of my riding meandering around the country roads between 258 and 31 and 10 and 460. Just last weekend I was out for about 5 1/2 hours in that area and rode the ferry and rode along the Colonial Parkway and back. So Howdy, neighbor!!
BTW, I live in Norfolk.
Norfolk is getting really congested now days.
So do you ride with a group or by yourself. My secretary and her husband always go out with their group. She got a brand new harley and he tried to teach her to ride it and she fell over at 4mph and broke her arm, so now she won't drive anymore, just ride.
My travels typically take me opposite of the traffic so it doesn't affect me too much.
I very much prefer riding by myself. That way I can decide when, where, how, and how long I ride. I occasionally go with a small group but prefer riding solo.
Sorry to hear about your co-worker's mishap. I advise anyone who wants to learn ride that they should take the safety course given at the community college. No one should try to learn from someone else. It almost never is successful.
I guess so, she sure was an example of it "not working".
I want to get a bike, but wife won't let me, she said that I will kill myself. Which is probably true. I look at women, trees, and other cars too much.
I used to ride motorcycles years ago and really enjoyed it.I live in the chesapeake area.Be careful out there I just lost a friend a little over a week ago who was riding out in Suffolk and hit a guard rail.You may have read about it.
Yeah, I was on that ride. He was apparently behind us so we didn't find out until we got back.
It looks like a great place to live, Kind of reminds me of the show Gommer Pyle. Really laid back and easy going. The only bad thing is I don,t think they have high speed internet, so I guess I,ll have to go back to dial-up or maybe Satellite. But It will be worth it. When I move in which should be Nov 16 I.ll give you and asian fire my address or any body who wants to stop by. I,d like to see your bike, I used to ride a Harley in Motorcycle #2 off of Howard Beach in the NYCPD back in 1974 but that was a long time ago. It would be great to get together with you Guys.
I had been told they were a lot of riders.He only had the motorcycle a few weeks.We are still waiting to hear how it happen.Right now they are reporting it as a accident while coming down the off ramp.
"I advise anyone who wants to learn ride that they should take the safety course given at the community college. No one should try to learn from someone else. It almost never is successful."
Around here, most go through a weekend of training -learning riding skills and bike safety. It should be mandatory so riders don't put themselves into situations where they could get hurt or killed or hurt or kill anyone else.
Back roads are the most fun and scenic this time of year for us. Leave the house in the a.m come home in the p.m. It's surprising how the same ride in a car seems to go by much quicker on a bike!
I used our GPS to find a great bbq wing place - a little hole in the wall I would have never thought to stop in. Yum! (Wendell's in Norton, MA)
Those "hole in the wall" places are sometimes the BEST places to eat.
