    I’m guessing in case of theft? I just saw this on YT:

    https://youtu.be/7o2CrMwGjOU

    he actually reviewed a gps tracker that is disguised as a generic relay but it required a cellular plan to operate. Had some cool features though.

    For that money you could just use an apple gps thing that all the you do kids are using these days.

    There’s this one too that Blockhead spoke highly of. Also had cool features.

    one thing to consider is that most thieves don’t steal bikes to keep, they steal them to strip. So unless you recover the bike immediately after being stolen, chances are you might not get it back in one price if at all.

    yeah for sure. There is one called monimoto which seems to have decent reviews it’ll notify you within 5mins of it moving since it utilizes a key fob that “unlocks” the sensor if your in proximity. Else any movement gets triggered.

    With the rampant theft for everything these days I am debating getting a tracker and was wondering if anyone had first hand experience.

    Wonder if you can get an insurance discount. Might make the $49 a year even more palatable

    If you live in a dense city honestly an apple airtag might make the most sense for a bike tracker. They're what, $25-30 with no subscription fee? You don't need to keep it charged or change a battery so you could bury it pretty deep in the bike where noone could find it.

    I imagine it would. At least Geico asked me if I had any gps tracking

    Transmission never shifted right, I built the bike outside of the engine itself.
    Pretty sure the builder had set the cam-plate incorrectly. Sometimes the new gears are too tight so while I had it disassembled I swapped out some new for old gears. It’s been a nightmare but I can finally find all 4 gears plus neutral. One of the most frustrating things I’ve ever worked on.

    Mounted up a cheap box for fishing gear. Waiting on rod holders to arrive so my little beach fishing rig can come together

    State inspection. :rofl:

    Around here at least, I think we’d be better served with them doing driver inspections. :D

    How do you like the 701? It was pretty high up on my list at one point in time.

    If you put every motorcycle ever made on a spectrum from dirt to street, the 690/701 is the dead center dividing line between the two genres.

    I purchased this 2019 701 specifically for a 2-week on/off road ADV camping trip around Lake Michigan, and it was 100% the best bike for that purpose.

    If I had to have only one "do all" bike for the rest of my life, it would be that 701, however you do have to be OK with the compromises (slow and difficult on single track, not comfortable for extended highway cruising).
