Top 10 Moto Innovations Of The Last 30 Years



Quote:
Looking back 30 years at things auto- and moto-motive is like stumbling into those caves in France with the caveman art. I remember my dad’s Volare wagon with the slant-Six and the newfangled emission controls on the carburetor that ensured it ran like crap when it ran at all… Actually Japanese motorcycles were way ahead of cars at the time, but the miracle of modern electronics and the computer chip has rendered everything of that era antique. And the rate of progression of the last decade or so, if it keeps up, makes it impossible for my Cro-Magnon brain to even imagine what lies ahead. I tried anyway.

Among other systems. While I wouldn't put it on the top 10 list, it is a significant innovation well appreciated by people running around in hotter lands.

This isn't a motorcycle innovation by the way.
I ran around in hotter lands and didn't give AC a thought.
I recall my trip of 340 miles in one day scooting around Rachel Nevada and the Groom Lake road.
The Next day was spent exploring the Valley Of Fire State Park.
Temperatures in the shade were up to 110° at that time.

Great trip, the only AC was in the casinos.
