Or for drivers...

... it might give you a hint to actually *LOOK* for bikers instead of pulling out because you don't see any cars and then utter the pathetic cry of "Sorry, Mate, I Didn't See You"...

Any chance of some incidental information?

Last time I looked the Reg was a tech site...

So would it be too much to ask to have some basic information, like what PLATFORMS does it support and can we have a LINK to the product/site?

More details
