    Why does a motorcycle need radar? The bikes we are riding continue to get infused with more and more electronic gear that doesn’t enhance the ride whatsoever. The majority of these “improvements” do nothing but raise the price of the bike along with the maintenance costs!

    Designed by engineers for engineers. All the electronics distract the riders from looking where they are going and situational awareness. You will see the accident rate go up.

    The motorcycles need radars so that their riders can devote much needed attention to their handlebar-mounted “smart” phones and other attention-grabbing e-gadgets installed by the motorcycle manufacturers (fiddling with riding “modes” on the fly, setting cruise control, etc.). Vicious cycle (pun intended, indeed!)

    If you fly by gauges you’re not watching the road.

    Hehe, some comments have me envisioning an Amish inspired biker club that shuns all technology beyond 1968 ;).

    matt w. – technology that takes the place of rider involvement is not what many people want in a motorcycle. not to mention the added cost. nothing to do with amish bashing or those whom love their pre 1968 motorcycles. most riders today couldn’t even start a bike from that decade. and really, those that cant shouldn’t even be on the road. kinder, gentler motorcycles are appliances. i will invest in a new fridge.
