Well, I’m not really sure what to make of this one.

BMW have released a video of their R1200 ‘riding’ itself around a track. Sure, it’s on a track, but that doesn’t mean it’s miles away from being considered for the road.

Part of me thinks this is blasphemy – one of the main reasons of riding a bike is that you are riding it – not a computer.

But then, if it can help reduce road deaths through motorcycle accidents…you can’t argue.

Your thoughts? Waste of money?

I'm also an Observer for the Institute of Advanced Motorists - trying to do my bit to make our roads safer.
