You’ve forgotten all that haven’t you, but you still remember the wind rush, and that feeling when the engine turns over and kicks into life, and that feeling of pure freedom when you’re out on the road. Of course you do, because that’s what biking’s all about, but there are some things that you should be aware of before you re-launch yourself into a two-wheeled frenzy.

This little device which is mounted onto the dashboard helps us to find our way around unfamiliar cities by telling us where and when to make a right or left turn, or by finding the best route to a certain location.
