Apps on the iPhone have become a good way to curb boredom, save lives and generally increase the knowledge (laziness) of people. Here are the Top 10 essential apps for the motorcycle owning iPhone user
New link: Visordown's free motorcycle news app for Android and iPhones10. Car Incident Assistant - £free
Motorcycles are easy targets for crashes and this app lets you log any incidents for insurance purposes. The developers have created a simplistic app that allows you to take multiple photos of an accident scene, capture the location through GPS and record third party details amongst others.
09. MotoGP 2010 Official Live Timing – Premium Pass £11.49
Although rather expensive for an iPhone app this live timing app is a must-have for any MotoGP fan. This is the only app that provides the same data that the pit-wall receives in terms of split times, so as you are following the free practice, qualifying or racing on the TV you can get real-time results. Also, there is a interactive 3D map to view the riders on the track, so you can see a virtual representation of the gaps in the race.
08. Decibel - £0.59
Worried that your bike is too loud for the impending track day but you haven’t changed your exhaust, well you can test the decibels of your bike to make sure it is not too loud to make it out the track. Top Gear endorsed this app as Clarkson used it to measure the loudness of a supercar on the show.

M Simmons wants an app to tell him the 'best biking roads'. In other words, he seems to be reluctant to use a map and decide for himself.
There's a lot of this kind of attitude around - people being unable to choose for themselves, but needing to be told. They won't think for themselves.
I think it's against the spirit of biking, which should be about individuality, independent thinking, and not following the herd. Especially if that goes against the grain. Better actually.
But increasingly, riders want to be led by the hand, and to do what every other rider does.
Look at these chumps with their Harleys - all decked out with tassles, bandanas and santiago boots etc. They're just sheep, paying for a false image of rebel. It's a kind of uniform.
