SPRING AS SPRUNG! At least for us out here in California! And we have the photos to prove it.
The whole Corbin experience will be showcased below in photos.
RKA has two new events, see what they are about, where they are at, on our updated schedule, and there is a short update story below
The photos on the right show why we have them for sale. No cards no special trip to celebrate our 30th year of marriage on Monday the 27th of April.
|LETTERS TO THE EDITOR|
Purchased a SMH 10 from you about two years ago and all is working well as it has been used for Bluetooth GPS and BMW radio only and no communication with other riders.
Question: Will this Sena product sync to a BILT CycleGear unit for communications. Not able to do and guess it may not?
Please let me know and if it will- what is the trick?
Thanks for all that you do for the motorcycle community.

Yes you can but it’s a bad deal sometimes for the SENA and ALL the time for the other guy. You need to have the latest firmware upgrade that has included the “Universal Intercom function”
Then follow the instructions. BUT bottom line is the other guy has intercom to you for driver passenger or bike to bike, but I suspect the BILT will go about 10 feet ;-/
You can have an intercom conversation with non-Sena Bluetooth headsets using the Universal Intercom function. Non-Sena Bluetooth headsets can be connected to the Sena Bluetooth headset if they support the Bluetooth Hands-Free Profile (HFP). The working distance may differ depending on the performance of Bluetooth headset that it is connected to. In general, it is shorter than normal intercom distance since it uses the Bluetooth Hands-Free Profile. The Universal Intercom affects both the phone call connection and the multipoint connection (mostly used for GPS connections for riders). You cannot use a multipoint connection device while you are using the Universal Intercom in case as below.
1. If a non-Sena headset doesn’t support a multipoint connection, it cannot use a phone call connection while using the Universal Intercom.
2. As for Sena headsets, the Universal Intercom affects the multipoint connection.
3. If non-Sena headset (already paired as Universal Intercom with Sena) is turned on, then the multipoint connection is automatically deactivated. And the non-Sena headset is automatically connected to Sena headset as a Universal Intercom. So you cannot use multipoint connection devices such as GPS, while a non-Sena headset is turned on.
4. Even though you disconnect the non-Sena headset as a Universal Intercom, it will not automatically restore the multipoint connection. To restore the multipoint connection, you should turn off the non-Sena headset first, then try to connect to multipoint device manually from the device screen or simply reboot the device so that it automatically connects to the Sena headset.
See what I mean? Not so cool, but nobody else can even do it at all. ;-)
In my opinion not worth the trouble.
A NEW SMH10 is $ 156.75 / A NEW SMH5 is $96.75 slightly shorter battery life, slightly shorter bike to bike range but at WORST much better than what you want to do
I’m just saying ;-)
Hope this information helps
Thank you Richard.
Think we will do old fashion communication with hands and tell my friend to purchase good stuff from you.

|EVENTS / SCHEDULE|
Be sure and view our 2015 Schedule and visit us on the road this year. The schedule has been updated recently and we have added TWO new events:
The VStrom Western Gathering Rally.
Previous rallies have been held in South Dakota, Montrose Colorado, Boise Idaho, the Dalles Oregon, Ventura California and Silverton Colorado. This years main rally location will will be in Fortuna, California just a mile or so from the coast. There are many great motorcycle roads in this area. Come to Fortuna and experience the camaraderie, rides and fun. Good sites to find out more about Fortuna and Humbolt County are http://www.redwoods.info (they even have a motorcycling information page) and http://www.sunnyfortuna.com/
Besides the information on this site there are also threads running on Stromtrooper and ADVRider. Visiting these sites maybe you'll find some to ride with to the meet or tips about roads on the way.
Saturday dinner is at Eel River Brewing Taproom & Grill.
6 pm Saturday July 11 it's time for dinner. The outside patio have been reserved for 20-30 people. Please let me know if you're planning to attend as we need to let the brewery know a head count by the end of June. For any groups over 8 they only do one bill, so we'll have to remember what we ordered and split it on-site.
The brewery is within walking distance from the camp ground and all hotel/motels listed on the lodging page. The address is 1777 Alamar Way, Fortuna, CA 95540
