Re: The connected motorcycle vs the traditional one
Susan,

I really don't know how to predict/place this trend accurately enough.

I regularly see folks still driving 30-40 year old cars and Bikes on Highways everywhere.

They don't seem to be having any sort of Problems with their Driving Experiences do they?

In any Technological transistion there will always be some Holdouts.

Question is at what point do the transistions become so HUGE that almost everybody becomes an Holdout?

What happens then?

Does the Technology start cannibalizing on itself via AI?

So many questions to ponder in this very interesting space currently.

The connected motorcycle vs the traditional one
How interesting. I suppose there will always be some people who will prefer the old bikes and the old cars without any added connectivity, right? Now, how will that work when all the infrastructure is changed to adapt to the connected and autonomous vehicles? -Susan

Re: The concept
Susan,

Don't worry he follows Tech events quite closely.

Which is why he has self-learnt how to Maintain his Beloved Harley today.

He is quite prepared for an event when everything becomes super-automated;in which case he will stick with his Old Harleys as long as he can ride 'em!!!

Re: The concept
I like how those two sentences sound. Quite poetic. :D Harley is also embracing IoT. What is he going to do if in a near future there are connected Harleys? -Susan

Re: The concept
Susan,

He drives a Harley.

He just adores the way the Wind Brushes against him when he takes that Beast out on the Road!!

A Seatbelt would just cramp his style !

He remains entirely old-school and hands-on unless the need for Tech neccesiates itself.

Re: The concept
Ashish, oh, I thought he might find everything so cool. So, what kind of motorcycle he rides? If he hires an Uber car he has to deal with the technology Uber uses. :D -Susan

Re: The concept
Ashu, your friend couldn't live in the UK where by law you have to wear a seatbealt when you travel by coach. It would be interesting to know what your friend thinks about the Zero connected motorcycle and the Skully helmet. Did you ask him? -Susan

Re: The concept
Susan,

LOL!!!

This is a mega-Howlarious one!

I was recently discusing with a friend about the importance of wearing a Seabtbelt on a Car(especially if you are going to drive at high-speeds);but my friend was so used to driving a Bike(at very high speeds) that he found wearing Seatbelts in a Car very uncomfortable.

It was not untill he was fined repeatedly(for not wearing a Seatbelt) that he changed his behavior!

Re: The concept
Stacey, yes, you are right. I thought more about it after I wrote the comment and it definitely didn't sound like a good idea. :) But well, sometimes bad ideas come out as well. -Susan
