What do you wish was more accesible on your bike?

While riding?

Trying to see what riders wish they could see or use easier when they are riding? Cell phone? Ipod?

If you could have a holster for your cell phone for say about $75 would you buy it?

I wouldn't pay for a cell phone holster for my bike. I'm not going to answer the phone while riding anyway.

I dont mean while your riding. Some people like to see if somebody calls them or whatever. But it sounds like nobody would. (im talking more BB, iphone) kinda thing.

I saw some dude cruising down LSD on his gsxr1k with no gear (as you'd likely assume) holding his flip phone on his shoulder with his head cocked to the side having a legit conversation while in heavy traffic.

for me, no phone, no music on the bike. perhaps i'd consider a headset on a multi day multi hundred (or thousand) mile ride to listen to music.

I think they have a cell phone holster already for gixxers. It holds the iphone in the front plastic part of a gixxer gas tank. Perfect for stuntin squids so they can listen to tunes, make and receive calls, view their gps all while doing mile long wheelies between cars on the highway wearing sunglasses, shorts and sandles and smoking a cigarette. I'd get one but i don't have a gixxer.

I'd like to be able to get at my iPod more readily... currently, it lives in a pouch on my windshield.

A crash safe place for a conceal carry pistol would be great.

Or a nice pocket for caltrops.

I would like my bike to be able to carry one extra gallon of gas. If there were a clever, safe solution that didn't make the bike look like shit I'd be more than willing to pay $75+.
