For street easier (read safer) though it gives a false confidence in my opinion.

ABS though, is awesome.
I am quite a fan of riding bikes with no assist whatsoever. It is the essence of the experience.

Imagine a CR 500 with traction control...... I can’t either.

(I did ride one once, not sure I ever got it out of 3rd gear... and even then I wasn’t really on the gas, more in survival mode.). Awesome machine.

Maybe but I don't think it would make an ounce of difference to a professional racer, top racer will always win as long as the machine is good. I don't mind TC though, I remember a few years ago having a conversation with a fella who said it's not like the old days and I just said "What, the days when races were won by minutes and more top riders spent more time in hospital with broken bones?" The fact that these bikes are built with all these safety devices so that they DON'T constantly highside riders over the top of them and into a hospital ward is a good thing, IMO anyway.

I'm with Stoner on this one. The control of the brakes and the throttle should be solely in the hands of the rider.

In racing yes. For general public electronics are a good thing.

Read where Marquez was hauled in by local police and paid a sizable fine for speeding in public on his GP bike during scheduled pr event. How chicken shit is that.
