Rumor has it Yamaha is tired of dealing with whiny, overpaid, spoiled factory riders. Their answer is to develope a riderless autonomous bike that never bitches, threatens to leave, gets injured, demands more money or anything else. It will be an unbeatable cyborg bike. Once again, Yamaha leads the way. Actually, this is pretty cool. It is an entry in a competion to develope an autonomous vehicle that can drive itself from Barstow to Vegas (offroad) without a human operator. I think it was the only motorcycle in the competition. Here's a like to the site. ghostriderrobot.com The sad thing is, I bet even this thing could smoke me.
