    Post Motorbikes 'to get safe driving aids'

    BBC technology reports 'that motorbikes could soon be sporting collision detection and other safety features more usually found on cars'!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-12266406

    What do you reckon? Might be built in to the Multistrada by 2013?

    Some interesting ideas there.

    Although the much sought after car-seeking missile attachment appears to have been overlooked by Mira

    I am told that some of the collision damage devices (and parking sensors) work on the same laser wave length as police laser speed guns. These can unfortunately interfere with the laser guns and prevent the police reading your speed immediately.

    How terrible would that be? I personally couldn't live with myself. I am sure many other responsible bikers on this forum would agree?

    Down with this sort of thing!
