BMW develop a riderless motorcycle
on: September 14, 2018, 11:48:21 PM
Just came accross this article and video... :005:
As the development team mentioned, it will assist in working out additional safety features...
I would imagine, collision avoidance and automatic breaking if obstacle recognised... as long as they can be disabled, it seems a good step into rider safety.

What do you guys reckon...?  What features would you like to see on the XR? :305:

I reckon I'm all in.

My personal credo is to NEVER touch alcohol if I plan on riding the motorcycle. 

This changes everything.  Riding around Oktoberfest never looked so possible.  :030:
