BMW HP Race Datalogger, £530
Time used: Four months
What’s good: This plug-and-play datalogger lets you keep on enjoying your 2010-2012 S1000RR long after you’ve finished riding.
Designed for the track, after each session or race you just plug a memory stick into the back of the bike to download the data, then upload it on to your computer – it’s as easy as that.
The GPS logger draws a map of the track and gives you 32 channels of information from speed, to lean angle, gear position, revs, traction control intervention…the list goes on.
As well as graphs, there are also easy to understand colour-coded track maps to digest.
Created by 2D it’s the same system MotoGP/WSB teams use, but more user-friendly for us amateurs. It’s very addictive and a useful tool for figuring out how to go faster.
What’s not: Now other people can see your secrets. It’s expensive, but if you’re serious enough about your data, it’s an outlay that will see you through many seasons of racing.
