According to this theory, your speedometer would distract you the same, if not more... unless you dont care about how fast youre going.Honestly I think an indicator would distract me more than helping me since I'll be looking down to see what gear I'm on and next thing I know the next turn is up. But, to each of his own. You could have it installed at home by getting an aftermarket kit.
Haha ya I mean, it's a nice addon, but not necessary. The pani indeed do have it so does the Diavel (from what I recall)Prepare for a bunch of guys to respond with "you don't need a gear indicator, you should know which gear you are in by feel"
I think that's bullshit. I agree with you that the bike should have come with one - the Pani does.
Honestly, sometimes I don't.. between 4th,5th,6th really, one way to know is when you're following your RPMs... Having driven a standard car in the past does help but you know... how much is it to add 1 square with N,1,2,3,4,5,6 lolYou don't count them when you shift? If you are lugging, go down. If you are revving, go up.
in the track I usually use the masking tape to tape the speed part because when I see how fast I go I get scared and shut off the throttle--According to this theory, your speedometer would distract you the same, if not more... unless you dont care about how fast youre going.
Especially with such a tiny tank, but even then around 100 miles I expect my 'find a station yesterday!' light to come on.A fuel gauge would be sweet though.
^That metal tank would be sweet. If I had only wait for the SPEspecially with such a tiny tank, but even then around 100 miles I expect my 'find a station yesterday!' light to come on.
I know I'll get laughed at but frankly I'd rather have a good set of grip heaters than a gear indicator. Or a metal tank that will work with a decent tank bag (and not expand).
Well i mean, we are the customers and without no customer, there's no company.What's the point of this thread? It doesn't have one because it doesn't... either do the GIpro mod or just count like the rest of us. It has nothing to do with "this bike is expensive so it should come with one."
I'm much more pissed about the magical expanding tank issue. Obviously Ducati Motor Holding cares fuck-all for their customers...Well i mean, we are the customers and without no customer, there's no company.
So I see it like if the customers dont say anything, then nothing will be done (that is hopefully if Ducati listens!)
And I agree with a fuel indicator!! why not that as well!!
And heated grips.... oh and a radio... and some cup holders.. and, and, and a backrest for my pillion - no wait that's a GoldWing!!!I second that a fuel gage of some sort would be great.
