Sounds cool, but how long will it last on the vehicle before someone pilfers it??
And having to carry it around will be no fun, even if it is detachable.[thumbsdown]

I too think it is quite insensible since on bikes it will easily get stolen.And as Aditya said if its detachable and needs to be carried around then theres no fun using it.

Not a biker myself, but are these really a good idea. Most bikers drive crazily anyhow, now this will be just one more distraction for them.
