Okay, you’ve lost me. Jordan writes in the August issue’s “Two Cents” column: “Our favorite part [of the ride to Sturgis] is simply just catching up via Bluetooth communicators while we ride during the day. It’s nice that technology has come so far over the years where we can literally talk for 10 to 12 hours a day when riding without having to recharge our comms until we get to the hotel that night.”
The best part of the ride to Sturgis is… the ride to Sturgis! The best part of the ride to Sturgis is not yakking via Bluetooth for 10 to 12 hours! Get a life! When you start your bike for your trip this year, lose your watch, lose your cell phone, lose your laptop, tablet, and video games. If the best part of the trip is the “comms,” you have lost what it means to be a rider. Maybe you never had it. Have you got an IBA patch? No need to send me anymore issues. If I need an off-season riding hit, I’ll pick up a copy of In The Wind. You don’t see photos of Bluetooth comms in their pictures.
