Great post. Thanks for turning up. :dozey:If you have never ridden a bike with one, you won,t understand. :burnout:
Suspected translation into English =
For what it's worth - I've ridden plenty of bikes with a rev counter.I can't begin to try and explain the possible benefits of a rev counter because of one of the following options -
1) I don't actually understand why it might be better, but some bloke told me they'd be great for some reason or other and I believed him.
2) I do understand why they are useful, but I'm despicably smug and can't be bothered to try and explain to you in case there's an error in my logic and I'm shown to be a fool
3) Ooooh - shiny stickers on ebay.... oh sorry - what was the question again?
I generally try to look where I'm going, not at the dash (well, unless I'm trying to get directions from the sat nav, or check my speed as I pass a camera).
When the engine's revving its nuts off, I change up. When it's labouring, I change down.
The chances of it making the slightest bit of difference as to whether I make those changes within a few hundred rpms each time is frankly minimal. I tend to adjust shift points depending on riding conditions and my frame of mind anyway.
The chances of me riding better by looking where I'm going, instead of down at the clocks... is pretty high.
So.... what's your point?
