But what is too much?
Many of you know what I am up to in my projects, but I'd like to know your mind.
Below is a poll of what I consider essential technology for motorcycles. GIVEN THAT IT IS DESIGNED PROPERLY SO AS NOT TO DETRACT FROM THE FIRST TASK - control the vehicle, and understanding that it should be extremely simple to use, what technology do you feel you want on your ride?
If your choice is not on the list, please just respond.
I'm looking at device mounting options. I've traded to an Aprillia Scarabeo 500ie and there's darn few mounting options for gps, xm and radar detector. The devices aren't an issue.
