Fewer reasons to reject "Motorcycling" as a viable option..

There was no mention of the new "stratofreeze air-conditioning" and "auto-pilot"... there's some GOOD news!

I wonder... did the author of that piece ever ride through timezones while dealing with the elements or discuss with a Motorcyclist who's ridden for a large portion of their life?

The guy's a retard:

"For years, motorcycle buyers were famously slow to embrace innovation."

Huh? Oh yeah, those Japanese manufacturers sure languished 'cuz no one wanted their new innovative machines. What an ignorant cretin!

"Even now, some companies continue to build machines with the same basic technology as bikes built after World War II"

Ahem. Er, no, I contend it's only one single company headquartered in Milwuakee, WI, (counting out minor players like Ural or Royal Enfield). Hey, my K1200LT was built after WWII. So, I guess he's technically right.

I guess it's about all you could expect from a self appointed spokesperson for the knob-polishing "custom bike" crowd.
