Default Survey: using electronic devices on motorcycles

Hi!
I am researching what electronic devices people use on their motorcycles and how do they mount and power them. If you do not mind taking a quick survey on this topic, I would appreciate it! Here's the link to the survey:

Mounting and Powering the Electronic Devices on a Motorcycle

Thanks! ams

We don't need no stinkin' electronics! Rider's aids are for wussies. Real rider's just point and shoot.

I use an electric starter and electronic ignition on my bike though to be honest a kick starter and points/condenser work just as well.

I was one of those guys that couldn't believe they took the kick starters off bikes in the late 70's. I had only owned kickers up to that time.

My '78 XLH was the first electric start only bike I owned, I was pretty sure it'd leave me push starting it at some point but it never did.

I use my brain. Synapses firing left and right, man. I mount it on my neck and power it with calories and oxygen. Protect it with a Bell (silver so it's visible).

-Oh, is that the photo in your avatar? It looked like an apartment complex (with that big green sign looking thing and the house cropped on the right), so I just figured it was your "slightly fortified compound".
