For my purpose the thresholds of 1.70 bar are both ideal -> with that pressure you can go easly another 100 miles (if the pressure isn't descending further) and safety is ensured too.
I prefere a little lower air pressure for more grip - even in winter conditions.
Thats why this TPMS fits my personal needs very well.
And the alarm sound is quite good.
I just bought a much more mobile air compressor than my old one.
The new one weighs under 10 kg and with a 6 litre tank volume it's always enough for adjusting car or bike tire pressure. So from now on I always check my bike BEFORE driving after it has been unused for a while.
Thanks for the link to the Kraftfahrt Bundesamt.
I had no idea that they make this information public.
I appreciate your posts about the stuff you put on your bike.
I seriously had no idea that there are TPMS for bikes out there.
I am a bit allergic to vehicle automation, since it makes us people even more stupid and complacent.
But.... after 32 years of riding and also maintaining my bikes and cars maybe I deserve a bit of the convenience of seeing the tire pressure at a glace.
It is safer that is for sure too.
I'll buy the pressure system as soon as I receive my bike in about two weeks from now.
Check out the video link on this webpage about the PV market. http://thesolarinstitute.org/solar-power/
It is an old report, but still informative.
I had no idea that Germany is such a leader in PV. Well, maybe not anymore, since this report was from just after 2000 I think.
I have a similar small compressor for tires etc.
I don't know if you know this, but the US is retarded when it comes to one of the most important safety aspects of motor vehicles.
Nationwide, gas stations don't offer air for free anymore, instead, they contracted air out to companies that set up air coin and card air machines.
They are mostly broken, so I see at least one or two cars in front of me every day with low tire pressure.
It's already hard enought to get car drivers to check their tire pressure, but it became evern harder now that most air machines are still coin only machines, and who nowadays has still coins in their pockets.
It is so aggravating that I wanted to write the authorities, but I am tired to fight stupidity in our society.
The one good thing though, most modern cars come with TPMS now.
I do believe that an early adoption of TPSMs would have prevented more traffic fatalities than air bags, since they would have prevented roll overs due to blown tires in the first place.
But that is just my humble opinion.
But I digressed.....
Take care and I'll see you around and all of you here in the forum.
Thanks for all your input and sharing.
