      I've got a thing about touch screens and vehicles, especially bikes.  Truth seems to be that tech sells vehicles to some and repulses others, I think it's a great way for mfrs to make old tech look new and cutting edge again.  It seems to be a generational divide.  I want a computer running EFI, IGN, ABS and ride modes, a single switch controls that, no touchscreen needed. I've seen washer/dryer sets and fridges with smart screens, cant think of many more reasons to keep the Kenmore 60 series for another couple decades. I happen to be in agreement with you, it's largely needless, expensive and often counterproductive to try and automate things that just don't need to be "smart". Sometimes simple is good and less is more.

       

      Right there with ya. Wife n daughters have all those touch screens, proximity keys, back up cameras, yada yada yada on their vehicles they somehow convinced me to buy for them. I drive a 20 year old Chevy 4x4 that I can wrench on. I trust that truck over them all, won’t hesitate to go anywhere in it.

      Hey I resemble that.

    • Well, it sure missed some.  Still though, the old maps didn't add anybody at all, you had to manually add your pin so I guess it's a little better anyway.  Did you move your marker?  

    • Me thinks the map has a hick up or three. it shows Robin and me in Davenport Iowa, should be port byron ny.

    • I decided to ride the Goldwing to work today instead of the Venture, not a wise move. When I went to leave the Goldwing turned over but would not start, however it push started just fine. I rode home and the bike has started every time since.  I had a similar issue a year ago but all you had to do was put it in gear and nudge the engine a little then hit the start button and it would fire right up.  I attributed the issue last year to the batteries age but not sure now, the battery is only a year old and I actually had to get someone to help me push it to get it started.  

      Any clues as to what the issue is?
