I still haven't figured out why I'd want a wifi connected motorcycle.

What's that saying? Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

The comments on that post are rather clever!

We need to come up with a clever acronym or symbol for the things we deem "Just because you can doesn't mean you should."

Bikes like this are going to give electric motorcycles a bad name.

I wonder how many USB 2.0 ports it has? Instead of tuneups, you'll download a new Service Pack. "Yeah, I got Rev. 2.0.3 last night. Figure it's good for another 15 hp."

I can hardly wait!

The extra 15hp come when the owner upgrades the battery pack.

Hmmm, an electric motorcycle from England...why does this sound like a bad idea to me?
