One question. Does the monitor display the tire pressure on start up or do you have to drive a few blocks for the monitor to show the pressure?
You have to drive a few blocks. The monitor on this particular model is always on - it lights up if you bump the bike or move it even when you are stopped. When stopped, it displays the last data it had stored before the bike stopped. The sensors are based on the tire revolution so the data refreshes once you get going again (probably a quarter mile or so).

This thing just paid for itself yesterday. I was puttering around town at low speeds in stop'n'go traffic, and I was just about to turn on to the interstate and open it up, when the rear tire pressure monitor changed from 42 to 20 (and gave me a flashing alert). Sure enough, when I stopped and checked, I had a big nail in the rear tire. The nail had plugged the hole sufficiently so that the tire did not go completely flat, and so at low speed I was unable to feel the difference. If it wasn't for the monitor, I would would have gone on the interstate and would have been in for an adventure.
