Hi Im a new rider starting out after some experience on dirt bikes. Just wondering what everyones thoughts are regarding whether a tacho is definately required for a new rider on the roads. Just noticed a few entry level bikes without them and so far I have been avoiding them thinking that a tacho would be a good inclusion for someone starting out to learn the bike better. Im especially interested because Im a big fan of the Honda VTR and am looking at all entry level bikes reguarly now but the pre 2002 VTR models all seem to not have a tacho. What is everyone elses thoughts?
