  2. Well, at least there's no blue, green, yellow or red on there. That's the main thing they got right... :p

  4. I noticed that last week. Thought I was at the wrong site!! I kind of like it and i am sure we can get use to it soon enough when the colours get darker with the cooler weather coming up.

  5. The old site colors just didn't print right so hopefully these background colors work better.

  6. I like the fact that there are now sixteen grades rather than only six/seven. I thought there was only six grades anyway - not raining, very light rain, light rain, rain, heavy rain, f*#king bucketing it down.

  7. I wonder if it can now detect rain better...

    lol, I thought I was the only one who checked the radar, must be a bike thing.

    Cagers don't check their mirrors, let alone the radar

  9. WTF? what kind of a waste of bandwidth and memory is this thread?

  10. I liked the old colours better, but I can see the advantage of having more sensitive increments... so I guess I'm... undecided :)

  11. I'm offended by that.

    1. I mirror & head check,
    2. Watch the radar in the background on the work laptop if it's a wet day to decide when to dash out to the car so I don't get wet.

    Once you get the hang of how it works it's actually quite a good tool.
