    I have been watching videos on these flying machines being tested in China for a couple of years. Some of the earlier ones looked shakey, maybe after they have them flying around for a little while.

    The driver looks tense. Not as relaxed as us on our Roadstars. I’d like to see it running 60mph through some forested sweepers or 40mph desert mountain twisties.

      After they perfect drones delivery of pizzas they could have drones come pick you up and deliver you to places like an uber. Do you think we could be trusted to be flying around free to control our own vehicles without outside intervention? What would happen if I put loud pipes on that thing?

      I think that's already happening Mr. Myagi. Look at Tesla. Only killed, what, 2 or 3 motorcyclists so far? Hell, that's better odds than you'll get from a teen-aged girl with a cell phone. If she had an autonomous driving car than she could stay on her cell phone and only kill the odd motorcyclist here and there. I believe in some of the major metropolitan areas ( Phoenix included ) there are already taxi's with no drivers. You and I probably won't live long enough to see the day when Uber has flying drones coming to give you a ride.

      Last time I was visiting my Pop in Texas, I was looking at the set of Encyclopedia Brittanica my parents bought for us kids back in 1967. I remembered that when I was around 10 years old I caught a big Monarch butterfly and I pressed him in the pages. I thought I put him under "B" or maybe "M", but I couldn't find him. As I kept looking I came across a section about NASA or something to do with space. Anyway, It was printed in there, "Perhaps someday Man will walk on the moon". It took me back to the day in school when a TV was brought into the classroom and we all watched the moon landing together ( yes, in black & white ) I felt so proud to be an American that day. Now, you have all these idiots that watched the movie "Capricorn One" and took it to heart. Hell, there's even websites for people who still think the Earth is flat. I give up.

    I want one! I'd better start playing the lottery thought, then I'd have a 1 in a billon chance to getting one.
    I've always said, riding bikes is the next best thing to flying.

      It would make going "off the pavement" a lot more survivable when riding US550 approaching Ouray, CO...
