I was talking about the signal jamming that 101 was referring to was the bad idea.

Okay, I'm a little bit old school with this cell phone stuff - back in the day when we had bikes that were prone to break down & NEEDED a phone, we didn't have them & we survived. I do take mine with me though ( a dumb-phone) in my saddlebag just for emergency usage or to let my wife know that the short ride I planned will really be longer, lol ! Personally, I am not in favor of any more distractions for me, or cagers OR other bikers while riding. I guess the advantage of GPS & internet access could be nice, but I also have maps for directions & usually plan my route before leaving.

Ride safe, watch out for idiots & God Bless

+1. That is what I do. I find that planning trips using a paper map is part of the fun. I keep a laminated US highway map in my bags at all times and in the house I keep the more detailed area maps that I plan with and only take the ones I need at that time.

I have a Marlins iPhone Handlebar Mount for my iPhone 4s. It is chrome and looks really good, and doesn't take up much space. On eBay search for "motorcycle Marlins iPhone" and you can check one out.

phones are great for rides... look up maps, places to eat, catch up on scores, best of all; you can post pictures on the vulcan picture game

I too am a bit old school. When i go out for a pack of cigs I tell the wife "if I'm not back in a week or so, don't come looking for me cause I've crossed the border already." I don't have one of those new cell phones & my 'bag-phone' won't fit in my pocket. P.S. gps doesn't work where i live.
