I always wonder when I read these posts about electronics. I mean, the best system for communication with a passenger or another bike, the best GPS, the best hands-free cell phone, the best radio vs various audio players, not to mention radar detectors, and how to integrate them all.

Not for me. I insert my earplugs, pull on my helmet (and that other ATGATT stuff) and ride. I usually forget to take the cell phone too, because I still hardly know how to use it.

Yeah, I'm a neadothal. But all of my attention is on the ride, when I can quiet the voices in my head. Experiencing the ride fully - the bike response, the scenery, is what I seek. And that is enough, for me.

If you are into these electronics, I"m just asking you to consider whether they are really increasing your pleasure or your safety on the bike.
