Audio Video systems going obsolete...

And when you are all done, you realize that almost nobody can tell the difference between a quality upscaled 2K picture vs native 4K picture at normal viewing distance.  The HDR mode can be interesting, but the resolution really is not; almost all marketing.  If needed, just upgrade the TV only.  :)

"landline"? I know not what that is.

We live out on the boonies, no cell service out here. It is either a landline, semaphore flags or flare guns...

It looks like it is using a combination of sensors which are now cheap and in most cell phones.  They are using an accelerometer, a lean angle sensor, and probably a magnetometer.   They defeat the holding action of the switch with foam inserts to convert the switch into a momentary one.  I so rarely forget to cancel a turn signal, nor find it a hassle, it doesn't interest me, but it is a cool mod for someone that does.
There are a lot of factors to consider.  Assuming you were ready to lay out 2 grand to fix a 10 year old 95K bike, it is worth considering buying a newer used one with much lower miles, especially if you can part-out the old one for 1K.  You could then transfer most of the farkles you want (seat, windscreen, risers are easy...  muffler not that hard.... suspension, that would be harder.)   But you could end up with something worth more and with far more years of service available.  Quickly found a 2010 with 25K miles, carbon muffler, AND HELIBARS HORIZONS for $5,200!

To me, 10 pretty much trouble-free years on a bike with 95K miles on is a great run, no matter how I look at it, even if it meant going out and just buying a brand new 2017 Concours :)

Audio Video systems going obsolete...
I bought a Bluray movie the other day and it's a 4K movie which means I now have to buy a new 4K TV and...a new 4K disc player, so I started researching the newest TV's and decided I wanted an OLED TV (seemingly rated as the best picture) and as I researched the TV's I discovered that the new 4K movies are encoded with HDCP 2.2 (a new copy protection scheme) so I started researching HDCP 2.2 only to learn that all of the components in the system must comply with HDCP 2.2 or the movie won't play...great so now this means I also will need a new I found a receiver that I want and while researching receivers I find that there is a new sound format called Dolby Atmos, so if I want the new movies to sound as intended I need new speakers...I figure somewhere around $10.546 to have an upgraded system ready for 4K movies with Dolbt Atmos sound tracks...but I know that at next years Consumer Electronics Show something even newer and greater will be revealed.
I don't know what came over me! :D
