I agree with that. I had it on one of my Pontiacs and it was actually less distracting. It would switch the display around if you made inputs to the radio from the steering wheel telling you what station and volume level as well then flash back to speed. I never had to look down and always had my eyes on the road.I keep laughing at some of the responses.
The US Military uses HUD on their aircraft. Why??? Because it allows the pilot to check the display then shift his attention back to flying much, much faster than looking down at the instrument panel.
I would think the same would be true on a bike. Having only to shift your eyes a few inches to see the speedo allows more time with your eyes on the road.
I whole heartedly concour! Just the other day they were showing a new device, or maybe it was software to be downloaded, that will alert drivers to real time locations of LEO's. Now that's just what everyone needs, something else to play with while driving.:XNO !! Something else to take your eyes from where they should.......the road and your surroundings. NO !!! 100+ years of motorcycles WITHOUT it. No NEED for it. Just another toy. ( distraction )
