There will come a time in your life when trendy technology will bypass you as well. At that point you'll look back upon memories of the days when you understood what was going on and had half a clue of how to fix it. Odds are I'll be fertiizer at that point but remember where you heard it first.

Case in point--the new Beemer G/S. According to the April Cycle World it does everything but shit nickels to pay for itself but I'd like to see you scrotes try to fix it without the aid of a lab-coated technician.

The question is where do you draw the line? Do we stop at electronic ignitions and fuel delivery systems? Or do we want bikes that do the thinking for the rider leaving them just to sit on the seat and work a switch (which is essentially what "fly by wire" is)?
bullshit statement. With devices like the gs911 i can do alot of wgat the dealership can and what i cant i can google.
