Sportvue Heads Up Display

Hello all,

I'm a new member, don't own a bike yet but in the throws of some extensive research and have begun to look at this product and adding it to my list of starting ( standard ) equipment. I tried the search function a few times and haven't seen any threads on this product. Any comments? Reviews? Is it so new that not many are away of it yet? It, to me, sounds like a 'very' useful product and can assist in keeping one's head up and level with the horizon, especially in corners!

http://www.sportvue.com/motorcycles.php

Short background...
I'm a new member and this is my first post. Don't own a bike yet and will be taking my MSF course soon. I'm mid thirty, athletic and enjoy the faculty of all my limbs so I'll be doing alot of training ( including slow speed ) investing in gear and "listening to those with experience". I'm currently reading Proficient Motorcycling ( basically the "Stick and Rudder" book for our sport ) and I've done some heavy reading on safety gear, helmets etc. So, hello and I look forward to an enjoyable and safe ride.

Sean,

First, welcome to Pashnit, you are in for some fun. While the HUD looks interresting, all it displays are things you should become aware of without one. A quick downward glance (eyes only) does not take that much away from your visual horizon. I'd suggest MSF, gear, and motorcycle...THEN have fun with gadget land.

+1 ^^

i agree with Mark on this - also I think that once you get to know your bike better, you will know your relative speed & gear by the sound of the engine. I never had a bike with a tachometer, so i am used to shifting by sound & if you dont know what gear your in then you need to get to know your bike better...

that & i can think of better ways to spend $200 on moto gear...

welcome aboard... sit back, keep your hands ouside the vehicle at all times & enjoy the ride!!

No Gadgets on Motorcycles..... Tooo dangerous....

Oh, that's right I have a few, AM FM CB CD XM Radio Intercom Weatherband HeatedSseats Heated Grips GPS

Ok, I guess gadgets are ok.

However, I agree with Mark 100%. MSF, Gear, Focus on learning to ride well, Then think about taking pictures & cool gadgets.

Ride Safe!
