Do not your helmet, it’s the

More and more often I treated like a criminal, a scumbag who steals, who can not be trusted and should be put away for many years.

It is all done under the umbrella argument of “Your it is politically correct not to question supposedly “sensible” rules on top of each other. But enough is my helmet is a safety devise and we win this argument.

Again and I am refused fuel at service Embarrassingly loud the stations yell for everybody to hear: motorcyclist has to remove his helmet!”, and I am not if from some hidden a sharpshooter is aiming his rifle at me.

Not it is insulting to ask me to remove my helmet, but it is plain dangerous.

In a world of scale CCTV observation it is within limits that the of visitors or intruders can be recorded. At a station, all vehicle registrations are and used in criminal prosecution the customer leave without That is fair.

But to ask me in a further to remove my helmet is simply not First I have no plan to fuel, and the statistics confirm fuel is stolen mainly by of cars and not motorcycles. But not only the operator think I may be stealing, but he implies that I am driving a motorcycle, why else would he need my face on tape.

Ask your friendly fuel operator: more fuel is not by confused elderly drivers by criminal motorcyclists.

This is and goes a step to far. will fuel station ask customers to remove their as boarder patrol officers do at the When will there be a by Shell, BP or Esso to lower hoddies, scarf or burka? You be 15 to shop for fuel, when they impose a upper age refusing fuel for the confused

I am sure that in some corporate back room a is already justifying his employment by such further rules.

But not is this new practise insulting, it is dangerous on numerous accounts:

 it dilutes the visibility and respect of important safety notices at stations. While a warning that smoking is dangerous and engine should be switched off some sense, the back bureaucrat adds symbols activities at a alarming rate: no no eating, no mobile, whats no kissing, no smiling? Recently he no helmets, but what does have to do with safety?

Does he thinks I pull a gun and the safety of his other customers? the fuel ignite because I a helmet?

If the back room would be in touch with the his fuel brand supports and he should know that its a to wear a helmet at some stations for safety reasons.

A is a safety devise, and should not be on a safety board.

Secondly new rule is dangerous for the motorcycle himself. Dear underpaid station operator: a helmet is not like a baseball cap, and to and secure it correctly is a important measure. To ask a rider to remove it the risk that it is not put on again

We all remember that on occasion we to stop after the first few of a ride to adjust the helmet or and now I am forced to remove a perfectly helmet without good

The back room bureaucrat has the law on his to enforce this wrong and rule, it is up to us to make it a economical decision for his company to do so. Luckily not all enforce this rule, but they do, I leave after a friendly discussion without and purchase… and never return.

Like biker friendly and restaurants, fuel station advertise the fact that are biker friendly, and allow you to your helmet on when you accepting that the helmet is a device and you are not considered a thief.

The connector of your Zumo not like salt!

Doing a Google search, I realise many Zumo motorcycle know this message as as I now do:

USB connected to wrong port

and we may all the same way: WTF, the USB is not connected at all, never was and will be. No clear explanation is when reading through all and comments, except for 1 recurring its wet outside, and the problem often once the sun started shining.

in England waiting for the sun to dry things out can be time consuming, it may actually not at all for years in a row. So after wet weekend rides in January I to search for the places that can get and to no surprise, thats nearly but only few are somewhat related to the USB of the ZUMO: a) the cradle unit and b) the Micro USB connector at he end of the cable, the one you unter you seat, or better under your very wet

I am not convinced its the cradle unit, as the are well sealed off by a blue (1) from any moving part, the way for moisture entering the unit is the cable connection (2). but not likely, but keep it dry and greased.

more likely is a short or a creeping current between in the female Micro USB connector you under your seat. one can be exposed to a waterfall of water, and is worse: salty water. This is worth remembering:

TDS (ppm) = X EC (μS/cm) = 640 X EC (dS/m).

EC stands for Conductivity, and TDS stands for Total Solids. The 640 seems to be a important but I have no idea why. some reader can enlighten me, or

If you paid attention in school, you may that distilled water not contain dissolved salts as a result, it does not conduct and has an EC of zero. In other words: put female Zumo 660 USB connector in water, and all works fine. So in it may rain as much as it wants, but as water has a very low salt your ZUMO works on the way to Rome or Morocco.

In winter however, local enjoy throwing salt on the so much that your looks like sugar after each ride, but its not its salt. Add water from the and you have a very conductive mixture that short your ZUMO 660, and all GPS is willing to repeat over and again is:

USB connected to wrong

… while it should be saying:

user, the salt concentration of the you dip my female USB connector in is way to high for and as you seem to enjoy doing I will now spam you with error messages making no See you again in summer.

Some life saving informations on the of EC: interestingly, if the water contains large amounts of salt, the water becomes such an conductor of electricity that an current may essentially ignore a body in the water and stick to the pathway to conduct itself—the of salt in the water. That is why the of … in sea water is less it would be in your bath – if you did not add too much salt.

Whatever, but did we learn something? Yes I if you still want to ride in on wet salty roads, keep female connector as dry as possible, USB that is.

I tried to solve the with as small bag of silica gel (3) you them as addition in the packaging of food product or sensible equipment, and uncooked rice, as absorb humidity very

Wrap them with the and dried out USB connector in a plastic and hope for the best.

Have a ride in all seasons!
