    Don't have to look at it until unless you want to know what kind twistes/turns coming ahead.

    Kind a like course indicator in video games.

    MikeN has said this also. Perplexes me. i just don't understand how you can watch the GPS for the turns and watch the road for turns and hazzards at the same time. Maybe it's this **** slow coonass processor I was born with....

    I do the same thing as Mike.
    After completing a turn and establishing a straight line, I continue to look ahead and look at the entrance to the next turn.
    Well before reaching the braking point of the turn, I glance down and quickly determine the degree of the turn.
    This doesn't in any way negate the efforts of determining entry speed, braking point and apex setting from me during the turn.
    Rather is simply helps me understand what is coming.

    I can see lines coming off the turn or immediately after the turn indicating crossing roads.
    I can see a decreasing radius turn that is hidden by the turn entry etc.

    I never did it until Mike suggested it to me and now I wouldn't ride in a strage area without it.

    guess you use it the same way i use the riders in front of me. I'm wayyyyy slower on a solo ride due to not having those indicators in front.

    I can't keep up to the riders in front of me. I'm ALWAYS alone.

    Ahh, true. Apparently I'm occasionally faster than I think.
