Self driving motorcycle?

Well, here it is guys, the beginning of the end of we humans just driving for pleasure. First self driving cars, now a robot driving (or is it riding?) a motorcycle.


My take on self driving cars...just take public transportation, a car is not for you.


They'll have to unhook my cold dead hands off my steering wheel and gear shift **** before I step into a self driving car.


Can I get an amen, fellow car driving enthusiasts?

I'm not sure where this research is going, but there's at least one thing that it could be really good for: Standardizing motorcycle tests.

Using a robot as a rider, it could take the human element completely out of the exciting multi-bike shootouts we often see between literbikes, 600s, etc. Then, we could really find out which company makes the "best" one. Of course, these days, the bikes are so utterly great and closely competitive that comparing them often leads to splitting atoms.
