Mine was orange so gen 1?

They have undoubtedly been improved if there are 2 more generations of the thing.

I didn't know Mel was tracking us? Should have told Di so she could track us too.

Yep, I rode to work a couple days...lol. Other than that sadly, No. Life has been interrupting my bike time. It mostly involves family and the grandson so I'm not too disappointed.

Gen 1 was orange and quite a bit larger than the Gen 2 and 3. And I will admit that the gen 1 was a bit spotty for me also. To be fair tho I kept the thing in my trunk, not in the open as they suggested.

On the Strom I keep it in the tank bag or in my jacket pocket. Tank bag seems to works much better.

On the Wing, I started keeping it in the front right fairing compartment if it's not in my jacket pocket. The fairing pocket was where we had it on our recent NE trip and it worked flawlessly. I've also left it in the trunk before with good results.

Yeah, the Gen 2 and 3 I used the strap on my left fairing pocket to hold them with a carabiner.

If I'm riding by myself, I will put it in my jacket pocket so if I am separated from the bike and would need the emergency button in case of an accident it's available.

Otherwise it's on the bike
