Stupid Idea! No types of electrical locks or anything to do with a key!
First I often push my bikes off to side and don't have my key handy, so why should I have to go in house to get one, or worse drive 10 miles to get the key at the house just because I want to roll a bike 30 feet over at the shop! Or what if I can't find my key, what then leave my drive blocked for a few days while I look for it? I have more than 1 or 2 bikes and I don't always carry every key to every bike I have!
Some I don't ride often have a dead battery once in a while, turning on the key would do nothing so what then if the stand is locked?? Can't even roll the bike over to charge the battery! Might have to roll it around to be able to get to it for a jump from a car, nope can't do that either if stand locked.
Gee just think, stuck parked in odd spot with dead battery on a trip, stand locked, no way to roll bike and not able to get a car up to it where parked to give it a jump. Great!
What would be next, anti slip paint for car hoods and roofs so kids don't fall off when using the windshield as a sliding board? Yes I seen that also!
