That is pretty cool. Especially the part where the bike follows her.

I expect all cars, and bikes, will be autonomous in the fairly near future. And, seeing drivers fiddling with their nav systems and cell phones while hurling down the road at over 80 mph, maybe it can't come soon enough.


I'm pretty sure my bike is smarter than I am.
And absolutely sure it handles better than I ride.

I suppose there are extremes it can't handle but for normal situations like when coming near a stop and a little bobble happens it would prevent a fall over.

If you have to rely on something like that, I think it's time to think about hanging up your helmet

Back to riding after a 30 yr lay off.. Started with a 86 Magna 750 on to a 02 Shadow 1100,99 Magna 750,91 ST1100, finaly a 93 Wing.. and now an 06 1800 Loven Life...

One problem I see with such automation is "What happens when it fails?".

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"
