    Now if it were parked outside and could keep itself righted during a wind storm instead of blowing over I'd like that.

    Or fight a thief.

    It's just a showcase of the technology that almighty H is capable of producing. Like hydraulic clutches? Or disc brakes? Fifty years from now riders will be looking back at us and thinking, "How could they ride without X." Innovation is where it's at.

    That is true in most cases, but there are always a few people that want the older tech.

    Perfect example - I love manual transmissions, here in the US, the vehicle fleet is made up of 99% automatic transmissions. Enough said...

    This is a statement that I think most of you would agree with and could probably be talked about for 1000 pages.

    How about an automatic, pressure sensitive, adjustable throttle/transmission motorcycle? It's selectable, manual or auto when you want it; you could shift based on what rpm you select depending on the pressure you applied to the throttle: more pressure, shifts at higher rpm, less pressure, gears would change at a lower rpm, for highway cruising for example. In any case, you wouldn't need a clutch and would still maintain rider-selected parameters. Still want a clutch?

    Sounds just like the automatic in the Express van I have to drive at work. I prefer to have my throttle inputs separated from shift points in the transmission.
