    Episode 241 : Which Bluetooth Communicator Do You Use?

    Episode 241 : Which Bluetooth Communicator Do You Use?

    We start with the rides.
    Larry does his for his eyes only loosening  up before his 90 mile ride through the countryside.  Tom has merely trundled about on his  electric bicycle this week. did get new tires for his GS, and rode a few miles to scrub the tires. This leads to Kevin’s question about what does constitute for each of us, and our listeners, what constitutes a ride?  For Tom, and Larry, any distance on the motorcycle is a ride. Kevin asks now what is a quality ride.  Tom says a safe one…Kevin looks for a longer distance, perhaps over 50 miles, to count as a quality ride.


    News:
    We learn that “The Long Way Up” will premiere sept. 18 on Apple Plus TV, and will air the first 3 episodes immediately, and then air the rest on a weekly basis.
    They couldn’t stop the people from coming, but they could have cancelled the rally.  Kevin is hoping for the best, Larry is anticipating the worst.


    Topic:
    With the rise in use of headsets in the helmets, do you ride in silence, with music, or other?
    Larry is happy with his ancient Sena smh10, enjoys silence as well as music, books, and podcasts
    Tom is a headset techie, and currently rocks a Cardo Black.  Likes to listen to music when riding.
    Kevin used to listen to music all the time, but more recently for longer freeway rides.


    Kevin and Tom argue about headsets (jes’ joking)


    Paddock:
    Larry reviews Marquez reinjury trying to qualify for the Jerez race last weekend, and then reviews the results of the Czech MotoGP.
