white light

ok On some Quality bikes like the BMWS1000RR and the Busa , Quality .... and fast!!!!   will have a Small indicator to let the rider know when the best time is to change gear, this is pretty much standard kit on WSB BSB MOTOGP ETC and moste race cars, 

Now some cheep crap bikes like the over rated R-1  R standing for Really shit  also will have this light but becouse the riders of said R-1 - bikes think they are the beez kneez , when realy all they do is park out side pubs picking up rent boys ,,, they will not use , said light,

Hey Pilkol....

Not sure if your Surprissed or Doubting the ability of most Big bikes including the Mighty Busa to exceed the national Speed limit In First gear????   If you are, then go get a test ride and you will soon be selling your soul to buy one. or get on Youtube and watch MCN test the 08 Busa at Bruntingthorpe. Respect.
