A REALLY SCARY THOUGHT...
COULD AI (ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE)
MAKE MOTORCYCLES OBSOLETE ?
(Or even ILLEGAL to own or to ride ?)

  January 10, 2018    by  Bill Fairbanks     

Recent news about advances in artificial intelligence, GPS,  and the use of these technologies in the development of driverless cars has brought predictions that soon, within a few years (not decades), cars  will have no steering wheels or controls that allow humans to directly operate them.  Supposedly, they will be safer to ride in with computers in control.
Oh, Really?? 

Of course, this raises a multitude of side issues. Who will be required to insure  them?  There is no "driver"  to hold liable. Laws requiring  the manufacturer to insure them would never get past the lobbyists or bribe payers.  Driver licenses could become obsolete. What would happen to NASCAR?  Would your eight year old be able to jump into your car and say "Computer, take me to Grandma's house."  (or "to Los Angeles" ?

Now, here's our  question... Could people be banned from riding motorcycles? What about off-roaders or rock climbers? Artificial Intelligence could never learn to "drive" a motorcycle because of the amount of full body movement required for balance and steering. Besides, what's the joy in not being in control of your scoot?  Frankly, it would scare me to death. There are numerous methods government could use to force you off your ride. They could make your insurance unaffordable or refuse to license you. Use your imagination. We know they'll try to get it done.

THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW !
WE NEED TO GET OUT FRONT OF THIS ISSUE !

Get yourself informed. Google the subjects (A.I., driverless cars), and follow the links.  Keep in mind that motorcycle riders will certainly be affected in one way or another.  If we delay, other people who don't share OUR concerns and values will beat us to the draw. We will be left standing at the starting line holding our cranks.

For this reason we are forming an advocacy group:
ORACLE - Your Voice for Freedom of the Road
.

If you share our concerns and would like to be a charter member of this group please let us know. You will enjoy the gratitude of future and current U.S. bikers, off-roaders, and sport drivers.

OUR IMMEDIATE GOALS -
*  Find lawyers who ride and who will help explore our legal remedies and
    protections.
*   Raise funds for a website.
*   Start a mailing campaign to contact related businesses  (bike shops,
    clubs, etc).
*   Create a list of politicians who enjoy riding and could be our voice
     in government.

A BUREAUCRACY, LIKE ANY LIVING ORGANISM, MUST CONSUME TO SURVIVE.
DON'T LET IT CONSUME YOU.
