Honda brings supersafe 'brake-by-wire' to bikes

Excerpt:
Quote
I hit the brakes on a black Honda CBR600RR as hard as I could ?? usually a recipe for disaster ?? but instead of the wheels locking the bike simply stopped, in a straight line and under control.

Just like that. With none of the juddery pulses of car-type anti-lock brake already on motorcycles from a number of bikemakers - including Honda.

I do not think that dying is a good idea.
Living doing something that you love is a good idea.
Living until you die is a good idea. If living happens to kill you it means you made a mistake, but we are human, and humans make mistakes, so go for it, enjoy it, live until you die, rather than not living for your whole life.
