The dealership in Maryland where I bought my Aprilia had to cancel all of their orders for these things... apparently the Maryland DMV does not classify it as a motorcycle :/

I like it, i think it would be fun as a first bike for me and my fiance to ride around on. Especially since most of my ride is either stop and go or open road.

I think these are pretty cool. I see one at the gym almost every day but it's not cool enough to make me want to spend 9 grand.

I think on the cobblestone streets of Rome the MP3 would be a real benefit.

I've got mixed feelings about these things. On one hand, I think it's pretty ingenious. On the other hand, I'm not interested in idiot-proofing motorcycles, if it actually qualifies as a motorcycle. It just gives the idiotic an excuse to stay that way.

It may keep them from falling over in a corner, but it's not going to help much when they run into a bus.

Saw two here in Tucson a couple of weeks ago. I'd own one if I were more affluent and did all my work travel at surface street speeds.
