    What your thoughts on the MOTOBOT? Crazy to see a Robot actually driving a high tech bike like that. Listen to the sound of the Cross Plane Motor when Rossi gets on her.. nice.

    The MOTOBOT autonomous motorcycle-riding humanoid robot finally meets Valentino Rossi face to face. How does Rossi react to seeing MOTOBOT riding the YZF-R1M in person? One of the engineers behind the project explains MOTOBOT’s current development progress as it begins racetrack riding tests.

    That's a pretty impressive feat of engineering.

    Well if I got training wheels I could ride like that also!!!! I think it would be more impressive if they could build a bike I could not crash in the ditch!! Now that's engineering :drink:a:yam:
