IDEA: Born To Be Wild

tz said...

I have a motorcycle that I've been running various things to link to the internet (Nokia N810 + Cradlepoint PHS + gps and obd) and log data from the engine and GPS. Vibration, thermal shock, humidity...

Sounds like a really interesting setup. We have friends who keep a close log of miles, mileage, gas prices, oil changes. What's the motivation for monitoring your motorcycle so closely? Just curious.

Actually, this conjures the mental image of a certain Eighties TV crime fighter with a teched up Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. (humming title melody)
