Humiliated on the DVP. /endlifeOh haarrr, haaarrrr. That's so funny, & clever too .
Still...you haven't addressed the point of my post. I didn't say all those things were bad. I questioned the idea of "character" in a bike that does most everything for you.
GP riders don't tell their mechanics "Great... it's fast as fugg, handles like it's on rails. But it doesn't have any "character".
I said every bike has character of some sort. You might find these bikes have character at 300 kph at the end of a GP track straightaway, late braking for the esses. Not so likely on the 401 between the on & off ramps though.
If you are all about improvement & performance, why not a bike with aerodynamic body work ?. Not your style ?.
Some one mentioned " state of the art electronics to make make them practical for the street". Translated that means rideable for people who don't have the location or the skill level to ride them to their full unbridled potential. Sorta like electronic training wheels .
Perhaps they will be totally autonomous one day. You'll look for the one with the most character of course.
I fully support everyone's right to spend large $$ on anything they want. I just think that it's a big expense just to be humiliated by guys with decade old sport bikes & more talent on the DVP. All sounds a bit posey to me .
Alright then... get yer picture book out & look for another hilarious response. Maybe you have an app to do that for you.
