Best Scooter of the Year Winner: Vespa GTS Super ABS By John Burns Three-hundred cubic centimeters or so is a very good size for a scooter; fast enough to get you anywhere while keeping you out of trouble, small enough to fit into tight spaces and ensure you keep a real motorcycle in the stable as well so as not to have your man or woman! And while they were upgrading, they gave the Vespa a new multimedia platform to connect a smartphone to the bike so you can track torque output, lean angle, and where you left the GTS parked. The seat was restyled, new instruments now use wheel-speed sensors instead of a cable. Many styling details have been updated, and a new, more powerful ECU runs everything. A short wheelbase, the least weight pounds claimed, with fuel and the sportiest ride helped out. And not just crusty motorcycle people, either. All they want is a simple, reliable, economical and affordable scooter.

Gadgets make for the best of friends while on the run. Seriously, Miss June’s online pictorial won’t just disappear as soon as the clock strikes midnight on July she’ll be strutting her stuff all year long! So what is our hang-up with needing to own the latest wave of technological wonders? The fact of the matter is that convenience, in all its readily available, electronic forms, makes life much more interesting and enjoyable while on and off a bike. During any long trek, it’s always refreshing to have the option of blocking out the sounds of traffic, cranking up the stereo and never once having to hear a song repeated five times within the same half hour.

Also, knowing where you are headed and properly assessing unforeseen detours and road closures is as important as properly utilizing your current surroundings–restaurants, hotels and fuel and service stations can all be tracked through customizable GPS software. If good music and even better traffic directions are important to you, by all means, stick around. Take a minute to navigate your way though the following products and decide which gadget goodies will better enhance your next long-mile run.

Once your new toys have been installed, hop on your bike, turn up the volume, program your favorite bookstore on your trusty GPS, stroll in and read the back of that foldout poster you know you’ve been thinking about since the first paragraph. Hopefully, her turnoffs won’t include big, hairy, tech-loving bikers! If you sadly fit the description, no worries–toss that hag rag aside and reach for the next issue of Baggers instead!

Meaning that it latches on to the chin bar of full-face helmets riders already own. Meaning you don’t have to replace your Batman head gear with a whole new apparatus to be able to keep your eyes on the road and your GPS, your telemetry data, your music playlist, the weather, and notifications that your mom is texting. Don’t you know I’m not supposed to text and ride, Mama?

But in answer to your question, I would like hamburger stew for dinner. From inside the corresponding helmet, all a rider will see is this transparent surface, and the information it displays in the lower right corner of the helmet’s field of view. Additionally, as motorcycle riders are aware, glancing down and back up to view bike instruments requires the eyes to refocus from objects at a distance to those directly in front of them.

I have had this unit since May and have used it in car and RV. The Garmin display is certainly bright and clear under any con dition. I have problems with the curve ahead feature showing up almost constantly and sometimes requiring shutdown and restart to get rid of lockup.

Contribute to our site maintenance fund: Thanks, Mark Cool Vests There are three technologies available. Polymer embedded fabric, Polyacrylamide crystals, and Phase-Change packets. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages. The polymer embedded fabric looks and feels most like a normal vest. The fibers soak up water and cool you by evaporation, so some wind is required.

These vests don’t hold much water, and therefore have limited cooling capacity. Recharge by soaking for 5 minutes in a large zip-lock bag. Polyacrylamide crystals are the thing that make disposable diapers work, and the latest rage in gardening. These crystals hold a lot of water. The downside is that the vests will soak up seven to ten pounds of water, if you let them. Recharge by soaking for 10 minutes in a large zip-lock bag.

The GPS antenna is waterproof and magnetic, so it can be mounted on the roof of the car or anywhere on the dash where is exposed to as much sky as possible.

The fitting simply threads into the back of the gauge like the one on the back of your cable TV box. We asked for a pound range, the larger size, and the look and colors. The LED is for a light that can be set for high and low warning, and day and night brightness. The boost gauge reads a transducer that needs to see manifold pressure.

We mounted ours at the outlet of the compressor housing on the turbo. The wiring is dead-simple.

August 4, 13 Best Scooter of the Year Winner: This job was fun until it got hard. What does it think it is, Rossi? In one stylish, affordable, easy-to-ride package, the Like represents the up-and-coming Taiwanese scooter manufacturers. There are a few contenders in the middleweight scooter arena, but the Piaggio BV is the best one for a few reasons. Despite its soft, scooter-y styling, the BV is much more like a motorcycle than a scooter.

But the motor is what really sets it apart, delivering a claimed Claimed weight is dry, which makes the BV pretty peppy for a vehicle that can also carry a gallon jug of Carlo Rossi under the seat. The broad seat is comfy for a passenger and supportive enough for an all-day ride. But it will get you a really well-built scooter that would probably appeal to a great number of MO readers if they gave it a chance. Cue Dick Ruble in 3 — 2 — 1… DickR will say something mean about me, or maybe my mom.

The Garmin eMap Deluxe ushers in a new, thinner and lighter physical form to the Garmin lineup. It also introduces the use of the same removable data cartridges as the StreetPilot series. Without a data card installed, the eMap has a built-in map of the United States highways and major routes and low-resolution map of the world border outlines and major cities.

This feature alone is superior to most GPS units that were out only years ago. But it’s with the data card installed that the eMap shines.

Along with our Lowrance off-road GPS selection, we can also load your Lowrance off-road GPS with satellite maps for various areas in the U.S. These are not your ordinary off-road topo maps, but these maps also include satellite & aerial imagery up to a resolution of 1-Meter/Pixel.

To start off, pull in the clutch, shift into first gear, roll on the throttle a little, and ease out the clutch. Shift while traveling in a straight line. Shifting in a curve is not good practice, and something to be avoided. Become familiar with the sound of your engine, so you can tell when you should shift without looking at your instruments. When you downshift to a lower gear, you should in one swift, smooth movement be able to squeeze the clutch, rev the engine a little to let it catch the lower gear smoothly, and shift down.

When you come to a stop in traffic, leave the bike in first gear with the clutch disengaged just in case you want to accelerate out of there in a hurry. Who knows what may be coming up behind you. The front brake on your motorcycle can supply as much as 70 percent or more of your stopping power. The single most important thing you can learn about braking is to use that front brake every single time you want to slow down.

Instructions for a Garmin Friction Mount by David Lipscomb Although most Garmin GPS units come equipped with a conventional suction cup-style windshield mount, you may opt for a friction dash mount. Some cities restrict the use of windshield mounts to certain locations on the glass, which may not work well for you.

Garmin friction mounts fold flat, letting you hide the GPS unit in certain high-risk areas while providing a secure environment for your navigation device. A friction dash mount makes moving the navigation device from car to car faster and easier, useful when renting or in a multi-car household. Additionally, Garmin friction mounts mold to your dash, allowing stable performance and low vibration in nearly any car. Make sure to check that your charging cable can safely reach this location without interfering with your steering wheel, shifter or pedals.

Possible locations include directly above the radio cluster or to the left of your gauges, depending on your vehicle’s internal layout. Remove as much residue from protectant sprays and other contaminants as possible. Press the mount’s pliable base to conform as much as possible to the contours of your dash. Your Garmin unit will encounter less vibration the better the mount molds to the surface. Grasp the unit and aim it in a comfortable direction to facilitate at-a-glance operation.

Lock the unit in position with the rotating lock nut.
