IMHO they are going in the wrong direction. For instance, I loved fuel injection after switching from carb's.............until it started "acting up" !
Technology is great when it works......or........even if you can fix it, but when it breaks..........

Yep, I agree with that. Look at modern cars and trucks. Now the Check Engine Light come on and your off to the dealer. You can't fix these things. You're not supposed to.
Bikes are following that model and going the same way. Too bad. It's the end of an era.
