I have thought about this kind of thing before. I can see the advantage in a car. I think mainly it is a luxury, another gadget in a car. Or should I say a convenience? I used to have some little valve stem caps I put on my backhoe trailer that was supposed to tell me when the tires were low, they worked for a time, then the tire could go flat and the little red ring was still showing saying the tire was fine.
My question is this.....on a motorcycle to keep a constant check of your tires is mandatory. It is not like a car. A low tire or a blow out on a car is no big deal. You will survive it, or just ruin a tire, on a motorcycle it can kill you.
So my question is, if one does keep a check on ones tires, check the pressure frequently, and check for damage and wear......will a unit like this be beneficial? Will it tell you a tire is going to blow out or does it just blow due to road debris and damage, would it cause people to rely on this unit and not check their tires?
Those are some of the things that go through my mind about this kind of thing on a motorcycle. Kit
The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike.
