    Computer In A Bike - Pictures Inside

    Sorry for the crappy pictures, but I saw this in a magazine... It caught my eye because it was a Lilliput screen on a motorcycle.... Very cool idea...

    Riding a motorcycle is dangerous enough, (I've been riding for years). Do yourself a favor and skip the comp in the bike, us riders know we have enough to pay attention to with all the 4-wheeled demons controlled by cell-phone obsessed, make-up applying, idiots that don't pay attention to anyting when they are driving. Besides, theres really no way to completely secure the screen.

    It could be a trailer queen show bike that never gets ridden.

    It still looks silly, IMHO.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    that's honestly one of the most ridiculous ideas I've seen.

    There was a guy on here a while back that did it in a Ninja 500 (maybe a 250?) his excuse was that it was some sort of EMT thing, I dono.

    When you're on a bike, you're on a friggin bike! You don't get on a bike to worry about other things, you get on a bike to GET AWAY from other things.

    Leave the bike for it's intended purposes....lol
