And the best thing about cruise control is to use it on a twisty road and let the bike take you through corners at a slightly higher, but constant, speed than you would have done with manual throttle application.

If we want to take about technology that is unsafe we need to talk about those bloody Ipads all the fancy bikes and cars have in place of speedos.

The information readout of a vehicle or bike needs to be concise, clear and not distracting. These Ipads with all the functions and menu screens on them i find super distracting. I don't even run a GPS on my bike for that same reason.
Jy gaan nou uitgekryt word as 'n dodo... maar ek stem saam. :thumleft:

I love all the tech. Wish my car and bike had more of it. Apple car play was a revelation to me as well. Don't worry, my car has collision avoidance too  :lol8:

No, absolutely not.  Well, it is maybe not the best thing about it but it sure as hell is great fun.

Yes exactly, nothing suicidal or stupid, just a bit harmless fun.  You are so used to rolling off bit and then accelerating hard that this makes for a nice change.
