Really interesting read. You would have thought the moto industry would be scrambling to get on board ASAP. It may take a bit of time but, I bet they will. Thanks for posting.

Interesting , but in a crash the impact comes by side , not from up side... However, bobbers owners do not have brain to worry about...

It a good idea that simply doesnít work. At best itís a gimmick and at worst a very dangerous distraction.
Shame!

Iím looking forward to next generation Head up displays built into the visor and in my opinion small blind spot advisors/monitors should be built into ALL road going bikes. Some BMW bikes already use them and Iím a fan. Sorry to go off topic...
