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 dadís Volare wagon with the slant-Six and the newfangled emission controls on the carburetor that ensured it ran like crap when it ran at allÖ 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.

#1 should be ABS. #2 TC. There really should be no discussion there.

However, what we should discuss is why your website had to split that over 11 fracking pages.

For me a good lid (helmet)

Never owned a bike with, TC, ABS, Climate Control, etc etc

Going from a front drum to disc brake was life changing for me lol

I'm quite happy riding bikes that are bikes and not all newly fangled with buttons, electrics and gizmo's all bells and whistles .... hence owning a Vulcan 750 lol

Sure whatever floats your boat
