I'm new the to the motorcycle scene, but I worked as a data acquisition guy (DAG) for 2 years in SPEED World-Challenge GT and Daytona Prototypes. I never used the GPS type data acquistion as downside of GPS is the accuracy. That really only affects suspension tuning, which is what we wanted the data acquisiton system (DAS) for in the first place. I haven't seen anyone using damper potentiometers or LVDT's on the bike events I attended at TWS (Texas World Speedway) (only 3 events). If your goal is suspension tuning I would look at Pi Research, MoTeC, Stack, EFI, and AIM. They have better software and you can even get wireless downloads on some of them (e.g. Stack). Regardless, some market research and due diligence is recommended. Most of these DA suppliers have excellent tech support and can help you spec out a system that meets your needs. Additionally you can setup the options to expand for say suspension tuning during practice and then trim down the DAS for the race. Finally having the info is only half of the equation. Knowing how to interpret it and apply it to your riding and bike prep is the other half.

Oh you better believe data lies, but it's probably good enough.
