TomTom -V- Garmin Review.

I had me first real experience with GPS while on a trip. I had the opportunity to take along both a TomTom ONE XL and a Garmin nĂ¼vi 265W. The TomTom was lent to me at the last moment, I had already planned to use the Garmin. Both are USB powered so I was able to use one cord for both devices plugged into a USB lighter plug attachment.

I started out the trip with the TomTom in my tank bag. There was no mount included with this version. It’s rounded back made the fit in the pouch of the tank bag a bit aquard. It’s touch screen was a little rough to use with gloves but honestly I didn’t think it would be very good to begin with. The keyboard was touch but it was not QWERTY so slowed me down. I didn’t have time to try any software so I was using on the fly route planning on the device.

More sleeve progress

Started on the Color of the first Koi in my sleeve.

It’s looking great!

Sleeve in progress

I have begun the transformation of my left arm into a sleeve tattoo by my buddy Aaron Ocheltree of Body Grafix Tattoo.

The design has a cool story of which I’ll post more later.

Here are the first 3 parts to be done.

New tires on the bike!

Last night I installed new tires on my Sabre.

There was much drama leading up to the tire purchase. Some cheese ball internet tire shop screwed up and sent me two rear tires of the brand I really wanted.
Come to find out that Pirelli quit making the front tire for my bike and I wasn’t going to have much luck finding one.
So I stick local and have Mike order up a set of Avon Venom-X tires and mint them on the wheels.
I got to put the wheels with new tires on last night.
I took her for a quick spin and could tell the difference right away. These are going to be some nice tires.
I rode to work today with the ground still wet from this mornings rain storm. The tires, dispute being so new, felt pretty good. I’m taking it slow to break them in and wear off the new goo. But so far with the two quick rides I like what I am feeling.
Here are some pics from after the first ride last night.
