I've got a bit of experience with HUD's flying in commercial jets and for that application they are a massive enhancement but for a motorcycle I don't think there's much benefit apart from a speed readout. I've driven a car with a HUD and much the same thing, the only indication I found useful was the speed readout. I'm open to arguments though.

MPH would be nice so I don't have to look down. Had to talk my way out of a ticket because I was focusing on sketchy road conditions and lost track of speed. Maybe gear indicator to help avoid those awkward 2nd gear starts  :rolleyes: . The other features seem too distracting.

If you need to learn how to corner safely get some instruction or at least read a book.
