FJR1300 Safety Feature

This video shows a real world example of Yamaha's new soft-water crash landing technology. Will this become standard on all motorcycles soon?

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...

Re: FJR1300 Safety Feature

Looks like the water detection module needs some work though. It found the dock instead. At least it ejected the rider into a nice boat to keep from drowning him.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

That's not getting the side case off the bike, that's getting the bike off the side case . . .
