anyone ever use one of these gadgets?



http://www.escortradar.com/gtimer.htm

it's made for a car, but i emailed and asked them about using it on a motorcycle. they said basically everything but the cornering G-forces work on a bike (lean angle throws it off). this seems like it'd be a nice toy to play with, and much easier than going to a dyno repeatedly (although you probably can't beat a dyno for fuel maps).

Features
-------------
Tracks acceleration times and speeds, including 0-60 and quarter mile times
Calculates peak horsepower
Displays acceleration, cornering, and braking G-forces
Race monitor with friction circle and brake testing*
Mount on windshield, plug in and go
User-friendly, no manual needed
Convenient remote control power cord
Ultra-bright Vacuum-Fluorescent Text/Graphic display*
Stores ten runs in memory*
Shows "best runs to date"
Download data to PC or laptop*

I guess that someone will have to experiment. Meaning, get the number off this vs dyno and compair. I would like to see the results, but personally I don't have experience with dynos or track. I'm interested for the sake of knowing...it may be a viable option, from what I understand dyno runs are spensive...just a lil input from the peanut gallery.

Ok this is less then taking your bike to the dyno 2 times :evil: cool :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup: if anyone is running one please let us know I really really spend way to much time at the dyno as it is ::), I'm on my 5th set of air filters just trying to find one I like and that I don't manage to drop half way through a ride.

Hmm... very interesting. I am having a hard time finding a track nearby and am very curious about my 1/4 mile times...
Thanks for sharing! :bigthumbsup:
