If in the future I find that they are features I would like then they should be available as an option, not a requirement. I really don't understand what is difficult to understand about that. I'm not saying that these 'rider aids' are bad or that they have no place in the sport. I'm saying they are not good for all and should not be forced on all. Those who want it should have access. Those who don't want it shouldn't have to have it thrust upon them. By not making it available at all, you put out the people you want it. By making it required you put out the people who don't want it. By making it an available option, no one is put out.
Let's also keep in mind that one of the largest dangers to motorcyclist on the road is the other vehicles and drivers. With this in mind, I propose a few more mandatory rider aids...
An additional set of wheels; this will aid the rider in maintaining an upright riding position if acted on by an outside force.
These additional wheels should also have anti-lock brakes.
Some type of barrier between the rider and outside elements.
A large clear visor to protect the rider from wind and other elements.
Now that there is a protective barrier protecting the rider, we need to protect the rider from the barrier. Some type of strap should be used to keep the rider in place in the event of a collision.
I think you can see what I'm doing here. I'm ruining the sport of motorcycling by forcing you to drive a car.
