I was asked "why would you go to the expense of putting a Race Dash on a Street Triple track bike?"
Well I started looking for a lap timer, Iíd had a play with Race Chrono and it worked pretty well, but I didnít like the idea of riding round with my phone in my pocket.
Aim do a decent timer for £300, but itís just a timer and the version with data logging is nearer to £500 and then you have to find somewhere to mount it.
The HM Dash is stupidly expensive, but its Plug n Play and you can fit it to pretty much any modern sports bike. All you do is change the back plate, flash the software for your model and youíre done.
I spent a couple of months stalking eBay for one, but there were no bargains to be hadÖ so New was the only option. I chose to buy it through Motodex www.motodex.eu
because their site would allow me to pay by Paypal (I had a few Paypal credits) and the postage was free.
Motodex were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Tony the MD sent me his mobile number and said ring if you have any setup issues, crackin customer service.
The dash arrived in about a week.
plugged it in to the standard connector and ÖÖ.
It just worked, no drama, no button pushing, no manual to read through, just turn it on and brum !! job done !!
Is £800.04 too much to pay for a bit of bling? Probably, but it is a stunning piece of kit and every time I sling a leg over the bike, itíll make the smile that little bit bigger
