Seen it before...wouldn't want it personally. Be too distracting...i'd always have it in my perhipal and it would bug the heck out me.

Hmmm... Well I'd get one if I had $300 to spare (and they were selling it right now...). You'd just have to learn to not be distracted by it. After that, you'd wouldn't have to take your eyes off the road to check speed or anything. Everything would be right there. Not to mention its pimp :D

Seems to me like after getting used to it, it would be a pretty cool and useful thing to have. Lets just hope that in the time it takes me to get used to it, i dont crash and burn and lose limbs...

would be cool to tie other things into the display as well...such as radar detector flashing light. hi temp and low oil pressure flashing lights. shift light too.

I'd have one in a second. How much are they? $300 someone said? The HUD is the way of the future both in cars and on bikes.
Picture a tiny radar unit in the bike that could display a 360 shot of close by traffic. A GPS interface for directions without having to look down at your tank bag. Fuel status, etc.
Embrace the future, my friends.

That's pretty neat if just for the gear indicator. That could come in handy. But also for future expansions like Solly stated.

it would be cool, but i dunno about having the big cube thing strapped to your forehead. Maybe if you could put the "comptuer" somwhere else and have the HUD emitter there would be better.

If they could make it display lap times, average speed, top speed, what gear I was in during my last lap at this point and if I should change or not....sure I'd buy one.....lol.

They will make that the day monkeys fly out of my butt!

No thanks..I think it would be distracting..plus I know what gear I am in by the sound of the engine.

As for speed, I hardly go the limit LOL so I already know I am going fast :lol

I fly with a helmet mounted sight (JHMCS for you mil-types) and it is distracting at first, but once you get used to it, you love it. I'd give it a shot on the bike.

I think it's pretty cool looking. Don't think it would bother me while riding.
