So long as the GPS receiver can do that. Not all can!
Personaly, I'd have no problem having a tracker on the bike, but I'd
prefer to concentrate on riding the bike and not hitting anything or
falling off! GPS, APRS etc, even voice comms, can take a back seat
while moving. Thats just my opinion though.
On a technical note. Depending on the actual bike, some of the 12V
systems can have quite wild excursions from the nominal 12 to 14V
compared to a car, especialy the smaller bikes with magneto/alternator
combo's. Also vibration could be a long term factor in the reliability
and stability of the radio/GPS etc. Probably only the big singles, or
older Hog's etc suffer that to a point where it'd be troublesome.
Anyone else on here got a MT500 or 350?
