It is hard to see via the eye piece sitting so low. When raised it causes too much wind resistance ... and did I mention the fact that you need to see the sun or moon to fully use it - not to mention the "chapmans" that is needed for reference. (Posted on 10/16/08)
This system is technically incomplete. You would need to add a highly accurate timepiece for longitude calculations in order to locate yourself on the earth's surface. For that price you could throw in the chrongraph and make this truly useful. (Posted on 8/23/08)
As a new rider, I thought I'd better use the "tried and true" equipment before worrying with a bunch of new-fangled electronic gizmos. I have enough going on as it is what with the nitrous system and the cupholder.

My 916 seems to color clash with this particular unit. The least you could do is make one in titianium or brushed alloy! But it has served me well at Laguna Seca though, I can quickly calculate my lap times and no need to replace batteries. Is it true next year's update will include deer whistles? (Posted on 3/29/07)
