Tire Pressure Monitor?

After barely keeping up a high speed fishtailing blowout in a tight turn, this early warning system is very compelling. I'm wondering how noticeable is the flashing red display. Anyone have a TPM with emergency "experience"? Ideally it would scream "FRONT FLAT!!!" in your ear bud, maybe version 3.

Monitors make really good safety sense. Will watch this thread with interest...

Its been a while, but remember it well. I was riding a rural Montana highway on my CBR600. LUCKY there was no oncoming traffic on the two lane highway with a sharp right turn! To keep the bike up while sliding sideways waay too fast, I went through the opposing lane, its gravel shoulder, and finally stopped UPRIGHT against a pasture fence! While catching my breath with opposing cars passing, I kept thinking what a miracle! Then I patched the big hole and completed 780ml that DAY, to return to work the next.

If I had a TPM, and noticed the pressure dropping prior to the corner stress failure, I would have aggressively braked early and missed the white knuckle excitement.

PSA: Replace your tires waaaay before you really need too!
