So- it comes with a tiny computer on it, huh? When your not trying to look your coolest you can surf the web, email your mom or watch a movie- ALL WHILE RIDING! Clever..........

Re: CTL-ALT-DEL

Our worst fear: A Windows motorcycle.

When you countersteer left, the bike will keep going straight until you click YES in the dialog box that pops up and asks, DO YOU WANT TO GO LEFT?

When you turn the key off, it will keep running and a dialog box will pop up saying ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO SHUT DOWN YOUR MOTORCYCLE? ENGINE WILL STOP.

kpaul predicts and then it happens

kpaul thinks it's cool. The GPTB is too set in it's way kpaul suspects to accept any of the cool technology that this bike uses. kpaul predicts flat screens with multiple modes (vies) will become the next thing in both cars and bikes. Just look at the ****pit of any jet fighter or 787.. Intel is fine but contrary to KrebCycle, kacid, Microsoft and real-time/embedded don't mix.. At least from kpaul's experience. Kpaul never had a real-time Unix lock up to where he had to reboot (soft or hard) i.e. the process may die on Unix cause kacid had code that tried to use a null pointer or walked off an array but the OS never went to mama like Microsoft OSs do. Maybe the stuff is better but....kpaul never had a Mac go south on him either..

Yep I don't trust Microsoft for embedded apps like this either.. Remember the classic Abort Retry of Cancel thing that you had to hard boot the system to get out of.

Well, there's a real high tech/low tech dichotomy. There's nothing wrong particularly with installing a load of electronic tricks on a bike. But mounting it all on a chopper is a bit dicey since the vibration is gonna make the rider have to reseat the freaking circuit cards constantly. Shoulda put all this fancy stuff on something smoother. Maybe this.

Too bad they left off the fancy image recognition software so that the bike could tell when a stranger was messing with it and give him a 500,000 volt shock.
