Programming the PC3 while running the bike

I haven't mapped my PC3 but after reading an article about the impact of ram air, I believe that setting the bike using data from real runs will be helpful, accurate and freaking exciting. I think that if I purchase a good A/F meter (digital) and with the O2 sensor in the right place I could gather an accurate data.
How about taking the bike out and ride it (in a safe place) while looking at the meter. I could gather the data and go to my laptop and do changes accordingly. It takes time and it might be dangerous at the high speed/revs, but there's nothing more gratifying than doing things yourself. I will have to replace the PC3 where I could see it to get the throttle position data first (if I am not mistaking the lights at the PC3 tells the throttle position). After 70mph is when the Ram air starts getting important. You could tell me that I am crazy , and I will say, "I know".

Hey I am just writing while thinking, let me know what you guys think.

I haven't seen them around here, plus I don't trust the ability of anyone out here.

I have a Dynojet Wideband Commander on my bike. I used the map that came with pipe and every time I make a change to the bike I make a pass with the Wideband on and check it on the computer, then I adjust the Powercommander to make a good map. I do this at the dragstrip so I can take full advantage of the ram air.

Most tuners will tell you the ram air on bikes don't do as much as most think. Check out this thread. wstaab and ryan are both excellent sources of info.
