NTSB for anti-lock brakes and stability control standard on US motorcycles

I'm not sure how I feel about this. From what I understand, anti-lock brakes have been required in Europe for a long time. I ride exclusively classic bikes, but adding these systems to smaller capacity bikes will certainly increase the cost of entry level bikes. The anti-lock braking systems may be a good idea. I don't know that much about stability control on motorcycles.

you want to get to the real reason? see who is lobbying for such a law. how many franchises are left in America to worry about the asian (and small european) market competing with them?

Two kinds of riders, beginners and experienced. The beginners did some dumb stuff but the experienced was able to do dumb stuff at a higher rate of speed.
