In that case i would like to sell you a insurance policy. Its the "pre-op transvestite cuts your penis off with a rusty coffe can lid and then sodomizes you nearly to death with it and then leaves you for dead with dirty anus juice soaked tampons stuffed up your nose" plan.
You can't say that you might not ever need it.
I like where this is going.
Heres the thing... most people who ride motorcycles go down at least once. I don't think anyone has died that way in the history of mankind, except maybe Jimmy Hoffa
If its safer the stigma goes away, more people ride, more $$$ gets put into cool bikes, people become more aware of bikes in general. I went to Paris, there were more motorcycles and scooters than cars
But prob a lot to do with the absence of the stigma of danger, which rider aids could assist in eliminating here
The danger is still there. However, rider education is intensive compared to the half-assed nature/non-existence of it in the US, fuel's more expensive, and if you're living in the city, why not have a bike? It's cheaper and more efficient than owning a car. When I went to Montreal in the spring, there were a shit ton of bikes there, too.
ABS doesn't address running off the side of a road into a tree or an asshole behind the wheel of a cage hitting you. Putting more technology into the bike raises the entry cost. Are people going to ditch their cars that they can use in pretty much any weather condition for a motorcycle? Or is the motorcycle going to be in addition to the car? In that case, people are going to have to use disposable income that a lot don't have to buy it. Having a car and
a motorcycle doesn't save money. The fuel savings get eaten up by insurance and maintenance.
