Mr. Long needs a friend or a hobby.

Tony Long sounds like an idiot to me. His riding skills are lacking, but he blames the 'death trap' he rides. He apparently learned nothing from his previous "mishap."

Agree, but his point is valid. Cell phones should not be allowed to be used by drivers of moving vehicles, period. We had jammers back in Baghdad. I should have smuggled one home.

Yes, I agree that cell phones are an issue. In most states a DVD screen in the dash/front seating area is illegal. How did the GPS folks lobby around that one! ANOTHER SOURCE OF DISTRACTION!

Cool! I'll take one of them, a radar detector, one of them gadgets that changes the traffic lights to green and a larger alternator. The company I ordered the stealth field generator from still haven't delivered.

I agree about the cell phones. I just hate to think somebody might think that dipstick is representative of motorcyclists.

The traffic light trigger is a felony in some places now I think. Minnesota maybe.

A few months back I had the misfortune to visit a Biker Boyz style hop-up shop and saw a DVD player mounted in the tank cover of a sportbike. Although it was unique for a motorcycle, I think it was for parked entertainment unlike the units found in cars. The DVD players in cars are becoming more and more widespread and will continue to proliferate as prices fall. Will they lead to increased driver distraction? I think so.
