New to me- very interesting.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

Very interesting stuff. This kind of technological advancement is what motorcycling needs. How many tankslapper fatalities will this invention prevent in the future, I'm all for a safer bike.

Then you need a bike with ABS.


I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.

Believe it will be years away....counter steering is the basis or the holly grail for 2 wheels to go fast around a corner and you learn that from the first time anyone learns to ride a bicycle fast or motorcycle and now it is going to control it somehow with this device if so it seems you may have to re-learn everything you know already. Seems to me the best way to get faster is what all the racing organizations concentrate already on...better suspension/brakes/gearing/ etc.....but messing with the laws of physics on the race track now or road. ...so, yeah..should be interesting.

That's kinda harsh. You're implying that he needs it because he doesn't kow what he's doing. ABS takes over in panic situations, compensating for untalented riders. Hence greater safety in "most" cases, at the expense of real control, prefered by experienced riders.

On the other hand, RRRotors simply create the effect of an ultralight wheel, and remove the cause of tankslappers, as opposed to the "band-aid" approach of a steering damper.

If it works as claimed, this is actually a Good kind of safety. Not like HP limits (shudder) that give a false sense of safety to legislators and ill-informed parents.

Thou Shalt Respect Thy 10, And Revel In It's Power, For It Is Good, And Plentiful.

Amen brother! To imply that one would need something like this because he doesn't know how to ride would be a mistake. 44 Years I've been on planet earth, 30 of those riding bikes, and not one mishap on the street, never laid a bike down, and I ride to work everyday. Raced in the Pro class SRAC motocross in the 80's, which taught me tons in how to control a motorcycle, so I don't need ABS, nor do I want it, BUT I do embrace technology that makes for a better handling motorcycle.

You have never laid a bike down because you don't ride hard enough. I want to know where my limits are and there is only one way to find out. Keep riding like you're 80 and you will be ok.

There are 2 groups of riders...Those that HAVE crashed and those that are GOING to.....

If you're not living on the edge, your taking up too much space!
