    Yamaha says it is developing a motorcycle riding robot which will challenge Valentino Rossi
    Trouble is, looking at it on the news, their robot still rides a motorbike with training wheels.

    How hard can it be to design a motorbike which balances itself? Just have a weight which moves right when the bike tilts left.
    And make sure it does not kick out at any motorbike coming too close to it. :)

    Is there something I am missing which makes this more complex than it sounds?
    How would you approach this problem because I feel like starting with a little model scooter getting it to balance while it rolls downhill?
