Is that what you would call telepathic steering response? It sort of reminds me of a slogan from a BMW car magazine ad from about 20 years ago: "Your brain thinks 'turn'. The car (motorcycle) responds as if it were eavesdropping."

lol

Im curious to see the outcome. Best of luck Damirio, love to hear your Dakar experience.
Thank you @What? , there won't be any outcome, It's all in the name of fun and humor in these "doom and gloom" Covid and tough economy downturn times ;)

I have enough trouble controlling my hands and my brain. This would mean I'd have to control my brain to control the strap to control my hands to control the throttle. Wearing one on the clutch side too??

Is that a real Heineman's extended range Butt Tank???
Really nice design in the front as well. Looks like you can pee on the fly.
Makes sense if you can do 600 miles between fill ups.
I want one!!

I hear you, I am guessing you also don't play drums 🤣 😂

Clutch side? of course, while hooked on the handle, all fingers are free for clutching, works perfect (y)

You couldn't give me those suicide hooks. If you are going to try using that bike for off road one of the best things you can do is get yourself a Scotts Steering Stabilizer. Good luck, Mel

I can't tell if the OP is serious, a troll or joking. I would NEVER attach myself to a bike. Put an old Yami XS 750 down in 85 or so after front tire blowout. Uncontrollable wobble procession so I laid it down, 45 mph or so, swung my leg over and went for a spinny ride. Came off mainly unscathed, bike was toast but donated many parts over the years. Couldn't do THAT with those hooky things.

I prefer using handcuffs, that way I always know where my bike is. I took all the stickers off, that's called streamlining. I gained at least 30 horsepower.

When things are dark, dire and getting worse I appreciate an attempt at humor to lighten things up. It's really sad how many here cannot recognize a joke when it's right in their face, but maybe it's just a sign of the times we're living in , put down the Kool-Aid, people !

Well said Night*** it was bad before, and now with this Covid scare, less and less people smiling (cause you know it's not appropriate and somebody may get offended :rolleyes:), keeping distance, not even the minimum "Good morning, Have a nice day", kids at school not allowed to socialize or sing or play in the playgrounds, families wearing masks at home watching News and getting confused with contradicting rules, it's beyond sad ...but there is always hope that over time we will all get back to normal, and understand that we shouldn't live in fear, imho this covid thing is blown out of proportions a bit (a good wake up call, but I am afraid with irreversible damage to some people that will always live in fear of "what if"). I sure hope this whole covid pandemic will become just another "ebola,aids,hantavirus,etc" sooner then later.
Hey it's a sunny Sep 17th outside, time to take my two Jack Russel's for a walk, ...here's an idea, maybe I should wear my "extra grip hooks" today in public 😂 wonder how many people will smile back ;)
Cheers !!!
