    Most HATED Farkle or Accessory

    Yeah, my Chatterbox "experiment" was a failure, worst farkle I ever bought. It functioned OK, but not enough volume at any speed over 40 mph. Plus, I got tired of people calling me on my cell phone when I was riding, it was distracting, and I usually had to slow way down, or stop, to hear.

    Russel seat height quick question...

    I am 6'2" with a 35" inseam. My RDL is in the high position (as was the stock seat), and I can attest that the RDL is definitely taller. As others have posted you quickly get used to "scooting forward" on the seat to put your feet down. Also, the RDL seat is so comfortable for distance...

    knowing what i know about gear Now, I would get this instead:

    'Stitch Roadcrafter..............the more miles I ride, the more I like it. I also have Olympic Airglide pants and a Joe Rocket Phoenix 2 jacket. They work great when it's really toasty. The Roadcrafter was initially uncomfortable in temps above about 75 degrees, but I researched techniques...

    lacodfireman, Well, the forum member that bought the McCruise that we installed, had done a lot of research, and he felt they were a high quality unit that came well recommended. And like I said, it was "plug and play". You can read a lot about them on this forum: Copy this into Google...
