I spent the day yesterday on my Wing, at the MSF ERC class. I can't count the times I wanted to check the timebut couldn't, because the bike was turned off and I was wearing a "Joe Rocket" jacket which has fairly stiff sleeves and prevented me from 'pulling down' the sleeve to check my wristwatch.
By the way, I had a great time in the class, aced the U-turns, etc...
At the same token, to read the screen on my Wing to tell the time makes me take my eyes off the road and locate the time on the screen. It only takes two seconds but that just might be the critical time between an accident or not... An analog clock set fairly close to the windshield might let me glance at the time and not take my eyes fully off the road...
