Interesting read to say the least.  I had no idea they were doing this.
I have big plans...

That is awesome, it's not something I would ever worry about because there is no way I lean my bike anywhere near what a sport bike does or at the speeds they do, I ride for enjoyment, not for speed.

Good point but wheel spin is wheel spin no matter what kind so I wouldn't be surprised if it made its way to cruisers.

True but for me the chances of wheel spin would be very remote, do I see this technology on cruisers, hell yes and every other type bike as well.  It's a great technology that could save many a rider a very bad day.

There is of course the final option. Learn how to ride, so you don't have to rely on your bike to do it for you.
Do not fear the night, fear what hunts at night.

It's cool technology and makes life safer.
The above post is strictly the opinion of the poster, disregard as necessary.

If the above post is in RED then it was a moderator talking, you should pay attention.

I agree.  I also agree with Paladin that if everyone actually learned to ride or didn't ride past their abilities, it wouldnt be an issue but there will always be those that push the envelope. I don't have a problem with that as.long as they do it at the right time and place.
