Sounds nice, my KBC has a built in visor tint sensor that will adjust to the UV rays. It also has noise canceling technology so it has no wind noise at all with a built in MP3 player. It has a heads up blind side monitor which would come in handy for you for when bikes pass you. Also new this year is the surface monitor which detects surface inperfections, debris and temp of the road surface as well as the outside temp and wind conditions. The built in Dopplar radar is kind of overkill IMO but a nice selling point. The voice recognition blu tooth is great. KBC collaborated with Go-Pro for a micro 128 Gig camera built in..Handy. Was a good price $249. Very competive since they pay no sponsorships to racing organizations or riders.

Never. I've done that once and I'll never do it again. What a PITA. :bang
