    Special project in mind, suggestions?

    Hello all,

    I'm new to the site and to building mobile PCs although I've been building desktops for a long time now. I had this idea a few weeks ago and think I am on the right track, but would welcome any suggestions you may have.

    The idea:



    The plan:
    Replace mirrors with rear facing cameras and small lcd screens.

    I'd like to add MP3 capablilities with a bluetooth connected helmet. I'll need to work up some kind of remote control I can use easily without letting go of the bars.

    GPS navigation.

    A camera in the front to record rides

    I'd really love to do dopplar radar and night vision but I don't think that would really be practical.



    So, any suggestions on extra things I should add or things that I should leave out? Has anyone done a motorcycle pc before? I did a search but didn't see anything.

    Cool... but scary. I can't imagine having a bunch of gadgets attached to a bike.

    Using LCD's and cameras instead of wing mirrors has been dicussed before, albeit in regard to a car and not a bike. The main worry is relying on the speed at which a camera and LCD screen would update.

    There is a guy in the UK who has a PC running on his Goldwing.
