Default I have now seen it all

I was in the cage with my wife when a custom bike with a sort of batwing type fairing passed us. As it passed, all I really noticed was it had a really big front tire on it (tall and semi-skinny with a fat back tire).
My wife, who has zero interest in bikes, asked me if I saw that. So I replied, yea, that front tire was huge.
No she tells me, he had a tv on his bike.
No way, it must be a gps or something. Wife says no, it had a big tv on it.
So of course I speed up to catch it and fortunately we all catch a red light.
mounted in his fairing was a BIG tv.......I would guess a 15" tv, tho of course it could have been smaller but just looked bigger since it was mounted on a bike.

Better yet - it was on and playing !

So here is a guy riding his motorcycle, while he is watching tv !

Of course he will wreck at some point and my wife will say, see, I told u they are dangerous....
yes, they are very dangerous if you watch tv and ride.
I have now seen it all

It was likely a DVD......

A lot of people have installed iPads in their dashboards..... Great just what I need, to be run off the road by a 17 year old playing Angry Birds at 60MPH!!!

I'd be worried about the shocking road vibration to the device.

IPad is flash based, vibration not a problem. Mounting something like on the bike that is a distraction and is a problem in my opinion!

If people say it's just a large gps I would suggest buying a large print version of a paper map, stop the bike and use it, safer and you get a break from the bike. And meet people in the area you are riding. Some of my best conversations are at gas and map breaks.
