New BMW Auto-Parking Feature

So, I've gotten a sneak peek inside one of BMW's advanced testing facilities, and managed to catch a glimpse of some new features slated for upcoming models.

It's still in early development as can be seen in the video, so we're a little late for the '15 models, but maybe this Auto-Parking feature will end up on some of the '16 bikes:

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

No good.
Too much noise. Improper riding attire. They are really testing out back.
I would like to see him try for that on an '09 LT or anything it that weight class.
ride safe
