EXACTLY! and the data isn't always reliable! The GM version outputs 4-5 sec. precrash data, usually velocity and rpm, as well as whether the brakes were applied (lights were on) and when the airbag went.



Its a pretty nice feature for cars, but I don't see it going on bikes until they put AIRBAGS on bikes!

This stuff isn't totally new. At least as far back as the 70s some commercial trucks carried graphing machines that would record their speed and time. When I worked for UPS in the late 70s the semi drivers had to file these charts at the end of every run along with their paperwork. The management told us that the state police could use those graphs to hand out tickets, but they never did that I am aware of. I have also heard of police handing out tickets based on time-stamped toll tickets in some states if you get to the last stop too quick, but again I have never actually spoken to anyone who has received one. Cops are using roadside cameras to catch red light violators and toll scofflaws in Chicago. There is at least one car rental company that will fine you when you return the car if you speed using their rental cars. I believe they use GPS for this, but I'm not certain. They got a lot of pretty bad press about it when it broke a couple of years ago. In any case, the trend is well underway.

no problem for me--my hawk gt tops out at 120 mph, and 100 was scary enough (not that I've ever done 100

Yeah, but is an avalanche of propaganda links actually an argument? An implies a give and take of opposing views not an attemot to overwhelm with insults and distortions.



Then it's just contradiction, not an argument.

Ah, yes. The war on drugs. And now the never-ending war on terrorism. It's 1984 alright. At least I think it is.

There is a long commentary/story on Janklow in this month's Motorcycle Consumer News. Apparently, in addition to many, many, reckless driving and speeding infractions, the guy was convicted of sexual assault at age 17 and again accused of it later, only to have the complaining witness found dead after being run over by a car, apparently following a severe, possibly fatal, beating. He's appealing his manslaughter conviction, of course. It's the responsible thing to do.
