the fact that its so high in your field of view really makes it no difference to looking down at your gauges. The idea is to not have to take your eyes off the road... looks like you have to look up to see the information.

Its a step forward I guess though.

Schweet, and not outrageously expensive as you might expect - though very nickable.

I treat my helmet like a prized possession anyway, so I'd hardly find it nickable.

I'm with Klink on this one. A HUD should actually "obscure" your field of vision with useful data, but be translucent enough to see through. Fuck having to move your p.o.v. off the road ahead to see what gear your in, roadspeed, cops proximity from your rear wheel, last roots phone number, shopping list, latest share prices....
