Advances in technology are inevitable. May the best robot win.

too funny, But seriously, they have had it for how long in WSB, and motogp, wasn't it inevitable to filter down to AMA? Next stop, traction control for the street.

Awesome, yet another thing to make potentially dangerous superbikes even more dangerous in the hands of the inexperienced. They should make street superbikes harder to ride so fewer squids will buy them. Instead they keep getting easier to ride, lighter, and faster.

Well if it's any consolation the Suzuki system is a bit much for street riding.
They had to do something after the empty threat of seizing any bike found to have TC.

I think it'll be neat, I run errands in the rain on occasion and sometimes twist to hard.

+1

I think they should still row gears on F1 cars. The tech aspect is what leads to 2 very big questions as to who's the greatest of all time in F1 and MotoGP. I think it's clear that Ayrton Senna was the greatest car driver of all time, but I think it's close (IMO) between Doohan and Rossi in MotoGP. I think at the end of the day it's Rossi, but if I have to put my money on one guy to win a 2 lap race it's Doohan or Schwantz for sure.

I guess we'll never know because Senna is gone and there's no way Doohan is mounting up any more, but I think Doohan would have lost his edge in today's tech heavy MotoGP world... the guys who rode 500 GP bikes through the early 90's are among the bravest and most talented ever.
