I remember adding another switch for something on the dash; pop the cover and plug in the switch. Donít remember what it was but it was a factory switch for some pre-wired factory option.

I did that with a 2009 911 that I had. Wanted the ďsportĒ and ďsport plusĒ option, so bought the switch and the local dealer do the install and reprogramming.

It's the second car he's given to a grand daughter in the last few years. Nice guy.

Can you show him a good report card (with your name on it) ?

Mrs John said I should try and get him to adopt me.

Heís not aware of much these days. Hasnít been for some time.

Iím not so opposed to the built-in nature (competition will often take care of that and make things standard) but no monthly fees. There is no way theyíll make it cheaper. And it portends poorly for those of us who want to keep things a long time.

Staying in a Day’s Inn in Childress for the night. I have gotten too bougie for this.

And Texas still sucks.

And here I thought I’ll be slumming I tomorrow night at a Marriott Courtyard.

Cheapest suite south of the river though that I would consider.

Problem is we werenít sure how far we would get. And we went with the 35/287 route, so along 287 is slim pickings with no Marriott group, essentially. Had planned on a Holiday Inn, but it and others were booked. Any port in a storm, and weíll spend a total of maybe 10 hours here.

Tragic

It’s going to be a hot and humid day. I still would love to do a longer ride, as I acclimate well to these conditions, but my friends don’t share my enthusiasm so we are only planning a 70 mile ride. Good enough.

Last day of riding in Wisconsin. Doing a short 30 miler back to Rhinelander. We’ve had good weather and beautiful roads and to top it off, I dropped my wife yesterday 10 miles from the end of our 60+ mile ride and try as she could, she couldn’t catch. The last 10 miles were pan flat. She didn’t stand a chance.

Driving to Austin in a couple of hours. Will put the Garmin in my pocket and pick up a few KOMs.

Seems like you could have the dealer do the activation based on an ala carte menu, but nope.

Well you have to make it as difficult as possible.

I didn't read the article. I'm just now realizing it's a monthly subscription!
Oh. Not so thrilled any more
