The fairing that was coming is no longer coming. Turns out the seller was pretty sleazy, reported him to eBay to be dealt with. 2 weeks of being told it shipped, then my order was cancelled. He said he located the “lost shipment” and decided he no longer wanted to sell it to me. He told eBay there was a problem with my address, which our chain of exchanges showed he was lying through his teeth. I spoke with their support, turned the messages over to them. She expressed a ban was in order. Normally, I would just let it go and avoided the seller but this guy pushed some buttons he shouldn’t have. I HATE dishonest people.
New fairing ordered from another vendor. This one is a 4 speaker model. Going to need a marine head unit if someone has a recommendation, would be appreciated. Planning on pairing with either 5” kickers or fosgates.
Driver backrest showed up but it’s cold and I don’t feel like going out. Appears to be a quality quick release backrest from Grasshopper Limited:
bought us both some new half helmets for the commie states. might as well have fun with it right?
Little brother and I have talked for years about video documenting (vlogging) our bike trips. I decided it was time before something happens to one of and can’t ride. I’m pushing 50 and he ain’t far behind. So it’s a thing we are doing now. We’ve both had our own followings in the past, he still does apparently. Guess we are going to consolidate efforts.
Anyway, I bought a DJI Action 3, helmet mount, handlebar mount, 3 battery packs and 2x 256gb cards. Was a tough decision between the Action 3 and the GoPro 11. Thinking about ordering a second camera to get his perspective too. Idk, I’ll have $1000 in cameras if I do. That’s a lot of dough for a hobby camera setup.
That handlebar mount it top notch all metal construction. Ruigpro is what the brand was if anyone is interested. Was like $22, well worth it.
I bought an insurance policy on the camera in the event it flies off at 80mph, costs $19 to replace, up to 3 replacements in 2 years. Works via my phone too… I can see and control it from the phone. This is a screenshot from my phone, viewing the camera pointed at my phone 😂 very cool in deed.
Bought two more phone mounts for gps and camera control. I bought these because it clamps all 4 corners and locks in place. Interstate tested on the VStar. I don’t care for the plastic clamp but it works.
More to come…
