    I found this very interesting. A full face motorcycle helmet with rearview technology. It looks to be very cool and has an adjustable front optic.

    Here is the link for you to view.

    Reevu motorbike helmets. Reevu - the world's first rear view helmet

    Anyone else seen them yet?

    I'm not sure if I like this. There are enough distractions on the road. For me its like watching a video while driving. There were a few quit interested in this but its not for me.

    I tend to think along the same lines as DangerDan.

    With all the electric gizmodry that already takes away our attention from concentration and focus while riding to we really need one more so we can see where we were before we go off the road????????:newsmile055:

    Nothing beats a look over the shoulder. It just ain't for me.

    Gotta agree with the majority. It is hard enough to keep my concentration on what is going on in front of me.

    Besides, sometimes I don't want to know what is happening behind me.

    The habit of looking over my shoulder is so ingrained in me, I'd probably fall off the bike if I got disoriented by a video. I can't even change lanes in a cage anymore without a quick look around.

    I'd imagine that it would be of interest to sport bike riders though.

    Got to agree with the majority. There is enough stuff going on in traffic to keep you busy, let alone have a visionary distraction of a built in rearview. Not for me.

    That would be the interesting part of that helmet, how large is the "rear view screen"? Like a lot of the majority have said, it would create an added distraction.

    What if something happened in the rear view that may not be an immediate threat, but caught your eye and created a distraction.........could open a big ole' can of worms.

    Thanks for the comments.
