Neat, never even thought about that, Im so used to wrenching 60s gm that I didn't consider anything other than a trans read for the speedo.

Sometimes it seems like I'm arguing, that's just how I work out a solution:.. The other times I'm arguing.

Packy's "Ming-Chow" method was very interesting but shouldn't the measurements be in metric as our bikes are all metric?

What is this 'speedo' you speak of?

Surely there is only:

At rest

Slow

Fast

Sh*t yer pants!

None of which require any kind of additional visual indication......

Im looking to replace the MPH #'s on mine with dollar amounts of the ticket at that speed.
