Test: TomTom Bandit and RIDER

IMG_5599Time to go more in-depth with the products from TomTom I’ve been hanging onto for some time now. We are talking about the TomTom Bandit action camera and the TomTom RIDER 400, their new motorcycle specific navigator. I brought them both on the amazing trip to Grisslehamn this weekend to see how they stood up against the Garmin Montana and GoPro… Fortsätt läsa Test: TomTom Bandit and RIDER

AFK – adventure awaits

AdventureIt’s time for my first overnight offroad motorcycle adventure. We’re talking sleeping bag, tent, fire starting tools, the whole lot. Now this only for the night so it’s more of a trial-and-error-tour to see how to pack and what to bring. I already know more or less what to bring since I’ve spent more than a few nights in the woods but I haven’t brought my stuff on a bike before… Fortsätt läsa AFK – adventure awaits

And she’s done!

11750620_10153074551565922_5241922655967020140_nIf the devil is in the details, then everything I do must appeal to the other guy because I am really thorough when it comes to details. Like for example soldering the wires to the crimps because I don’t trust them enough. That’s what I did today when I installed the electrical section of the TomTom RIDER 400 bar mount… Fortsätt läsa And she’s done!

TomTom RIDER 400: Unboxing and first look

IMG_5604I did it! After having procrastinated  for a week – I’m on vacation after all – I finally pulled through and did an unboxing video of the TomTom RIDER 400 Navigation (GPS). Or an attempt at least. Editing in iMovie isn’t exactly the most exact science. But here it is, I hope you enjoy it.  Fortsätt läsa TomTom RIDER 400: Unboxing and first look

Sneak peak: TomTom RIDER 400

IMG5813The things I do for you, readers all over the world. The kind people at TomTom Sweden, and the even kinder people at their PR-agency (Cloudberry, thank you!) sent me this to review over the summer. Tomorrow I’ll try to edit an unboxing video which will be followed by a First Look and, later on, an in-depth review. Does that sound all right to you…? Fortsätt läsa Sneak peak: TomTom RIDER 400

Waiting for the good times

1468615_10152864618160922_4369698682482131712_nIf you came here to read about the TomTom Rider 400, you’ll have to wait just a little bit longer. I still haven’t got it yet but it’s probably due any day now, and I promise I’ll make it up to you, okay? There are no riding reports either, not even anything mechanical. Bad weather combined with finishing up some stuff at work before I go on a much needed vacation hasn’t really left me that much time to do either. In the meanwhile, I’ve been occupied with watching biker build offs on YouTube. Fortsätt läsa Waiting for the good times

Another test coming up

19228_10152917210493037_3030931799266313770_nThinking of which GPS to get for your bike? So do many people and let me tell you, it’s a jungle out there. For the last couple of weeks, we’ve been using my friend’s Garmin Montana, supposedly the best GPS for the offroad adventurer there is. I can’t speak for it’s efficiency in that sense but for the onroad adventurer it does have its flaws. Like finding places for example. For that reason, I’ve decided to test another competitor… Fortsätt läsa Another test coming up

Review of Scala Rider G9/G9x

67197_10152460021835922_4603229511506469716_nBeing an enthusiastic motorcyclist is expensive. It’s like one, or in my case two, huge money pits have suddenly appeared in the middle of my bank vault which was pretty empty to begin with. Passing the test set me back quite a few bucks, buying the beasts were cheap relatively speaking but still set med back even more. To that comes all the gear, spare parts, custom parts, gas, insurance and so on. The list keeps growing. But there is one investment that I’ve never regretted: My Scala Rider.  Fortsätt läsa Review of Scala Rider G9/G9x
