Accessories and Products / Re: TomTom sale includes the Rider 550

For anyone that may be interested this is a 5 days only sale and my e-mail notice was dated 12-11-18.  If you don't get the sale price showing there is a place in the shopping cart when the item is added for a voucher code and that code is: XMASallOBSall1812
I already have a Rider 550 so I'm not buying one, but it's a killer price at $319.99 and free shipping.

Noise cancelling earbuds. :745:  Seriously, it may be possible to make it quieter, but I personally don't find the sound from the Trophy offensive.  That being said, I never had a quieter ride than on my friends 2005 Gold Wing.  Almost silence.

Glad mine was in place when I hit the dove last year at 75 mph.  Feathers EVERYWHERE, and some still hanging around in nooks and crannies.

Had more than one of those experiences at more than one large dealership in Texas that is owned by an ex pro baseball player a few years ago before I bought my first motorcycle in years.  Walked in, walked around a new previous year model Gold Wing on the floor, opened up the top case, luggage, did everything but sit on it while a salesman toured a young couple around all the atv's inside and outside in front of the showroom and there were three other sales people sitting in cubicles which all looked up and saw me and never made a move.  ATV guy bids the young couple goodbye without them committing to anything and goes and sits in one of the cubicles and carry on a conversation, both still ignoring me.  I walk immediately next door (same large building) to their other brand showroom and get the same treatment.  Rode on up to Austin and looked at BMW's and ended up with the R1200RT.  I was a cash buyer at the time.  When I emailed the sales manager there because I couldn't get to anyone at Honda USA  for two days he wrote back some malarky about remembering talking to my wife and I, a good trick since she was 25 miles away at home.  I informed him that I knew how obvious his lie was and guess what?  Crickets.  The only places I haven't had that treatment was at the BMW/Triumph dealer I go to and the Aprilia dealer that used to have a shop in my own town.  Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha dealers in other towns around me all offer the same treatment, although the local Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki family owned dealer does have a receptionist that greets people and asks how she can help them.  For that reason I buy accessories from them if they have what I want.  Sad state, but at least I found a good one for the brand(s) I like best.
