Hi folks. Had a great time on the ride in Mineral Wells WV and Ohio, especially offroading with a GL 1800. For the guys on the ride with older GL 1800s, I just ordered the T valve stems from CycleMax but forgot which TPMS you are using. My GL1800A is a 2001 model. Can you let me know which TPMS you recommend. I don't want FOBO as I want to see the pressure as I ride and don't want to keep my phone on the handlebars. Looking forward to seeing you next year on the Third Annual ride. Keep the shiny side up and I look forward to getting your recommendations.

Also, Brian, I can't find the SonyCam 8 on the Amazon website. Does it, perhaps, go by another name?

Cheers,

Jim

Jim, you can use any TPMS system. Browse Amazon (search to TPMS) and you'll find many different types.

Just a note to say thanks for a good time and getting to meet all of you. Great rides, good planning, and always fun to have an unexpected adventure. Those 'Wings can off-road!!

Someone asked about the front turn signals on my Goldwing so I thought I would add the link here: http://www.socalmotogear.com/HONDA-GOLD ... /g18dt.htm

If you purchase them, the installation is fairly easy if you are somewhat mechanically inclined. SoCal has great videos and lots of assistance if needed. Toughest part for me was removing the stock flashed unit and replacing with the LED flasher unit. Tight mounting place behind the windshield mounting.

Ride safe, and ride often

Interesting review of the SJ8 cam shown above.

0 out of 5 starsDO NOT BUY AN SJCAM!!!!
ByAlex Skacelon August 14, 2018
Colour: BLACK
Absolutely Horrible. Don't by from SJCam!!!

I bought the SJ7 Star. I've heard many users are having similar and other issues with the SJ8:

First of all, it has many issues with quality. It is overpriced based on these issues. SJCam provides the worst support of any company I've dealt with. They've basically asked me to install older versions of hte Firmware which resolves some issues but then introduces others. They had me go back from v1.21 to 1.20 to 1.18 to 1.15. That is all they've done and they can take up to 2 weeks to respond to you. Why should I install older firmware. The idea of updating firmware is to improve the product and add new features. Here are some of the issues. BTW, look it up and many people have the same complaints.

1. Can’t record over 60fps (1080p @ 120fps, 720P @ 120fps & 240fps) If you do the quality drops to absolute garbage
2. Camera Freezes from time to time and you have to pull the battery out
It gets so hot that you cannot touch it. It has gotten so hot that it shuts down. I've heard of many melting.
3. Aspect Ratio changes between resolutions (so 720p @ 240fps is like 4:3 not 16:9)
2. Battery Life is less than an hour in 108p, they say you can get about an hour in 4K, bull, I get like 40 minutes
4. You can't change the FOV in certain resolutions
5. I have the SJCAM Remote Watch and half the time it won't work so I don't know if I am recording or not when it's on my chest or head.

I would NEVER buy from SJCam again

Probably can't follow directions or works for GoPro :shock: . Been using SJ cams since the SJ5. Nothing but praise for them. Can't beat the features for twice the price. Just ask MiWinger on how easy his GoPro Hero is to operate :mrgreen:

I just got a new GoPro Hero 6 Black -
I love it -
remote control through my phone app
Easy to use - waterproof in its own case -
High quality -
Anti-shake technology above and beyond anything you've ever seen
GPS enabled so you can over-law a speedometer (once you learn the software)
Not looking back ;)
Here is a video I made - notice the 1080P
This camera will go to 4K if I want
Segway Tour in Sedona a few weeks ago ;)

And one where I overlayed the Speedo - (still learning the program)

As bluethunder mentioned I had issues with using the phone app to control my Hero5Black. However the issue was most likely operator error as I am not real familiar with the camera. The video that I did get was very good quality. I am tech challenged but eventually I will get it.
