    5 Shades of Awesome

    I know - it's absolutely not needed. It's another thing to watch. It's an add-on. It doesn't increase performance, help you corner easier, confer immortality, or regrow hair over the bald patch. But still, I wants one my preciousss...

    ek se..." one intuitive and
    distraction-free device. It includes the following
    functionality: navigation, photo and video,
    communication and music - so all you need to
    focus on, is the ride itself."

    Call me old fashioned, but I always considered the very reason we ride bikes, is to get away from all that shit ?

    Cool gimmick with persuasive advertising...
    How do they keep a straight face? Calling it distraction free then listing all the distractions

    Maybe I'm just jealous...

    I wonder about the drag and wind noise it'd create. I'd give it a try though, could work mint in theory.

    No distractions! I liked where the rider looked to the right and took a photo, while approaching a left hand corner.

    Then they show that HD riders need it to follow a long straight road, yeah well maybe they would need it.

    And who gets phone calls from Ken, Barbie?

    Nope, if you want to take a photo then pull off. If you are going on an extended ride look at the road map before you leave and look for signposts pointing at towns you want to go through.
    There are two songs, "Stairway to Heaven" and "Highway to Hell" which I think give an indication of expected traffic flow
