BMW announces self driving motorcycle.  I guess you need training wheels for the stop.

A gyroscope to aid in stopping will be in production as soon as color choices are verified.

I wept because I had no radials until I met a man who had no splines.

It would have been funnier if they kept filming it slowing it way down and them running to catch up before it fell over.

A somewhat hijack, but I used to be a diver for AUVSI subs. If they started going wonky, we'd have to catch them and pull a magnetic kill-switch before they got damaged. 1 diver per sub, so performance stress was high :)
