I have already sung the praises of such programs as CRADAR and Guardian Angel and have downloaded applications that let me keep track of my maintenance. What to do if I am in an accident (complete with a separate folder for photographs of said accident). It even includes my doctor's name and emergency contacts. I'm not in a hurry to test these applications.
There is a large part of me that likes the idea of having all that info at my fingertips when needed. There is even a program that will let me track my route on the bike for future downloads, sadly however that program seems unstable...being designed more for hiking and biking. I could see using a similar program to map out my rides just in case I find something interesting. I may try it again. I recently learned of an application for my android phone called Trip Journal which I will have to try soon. BreadCrumbz looks interesting as well.
An application available through Best Biking Roads which gives me access to available known routes, and living more or less in the center of the state of Florida I seem to have access to various routes, is pretty cool. However at a $9.00 cost to download it I'm not sure if it's worth it to me.
Then again the big question for me...is will I actually use this stuff? I have owned my Burgie for a little over a year and I can count the numbers of recreational rides I've had on it using my fingers. Well I enjoy commuting on the bike daily, it was the reason I primary bought the bike for, I also know that the Burgie is built for riding. That I enjoy exploring back roads and mysterious places. That getting lost is not a bad thing.
First things first however, clutch replacement and a new front tire.
