Imagine riding a bike that stands itself up when you get off and walk away. Imagine if you didn't have to wear safety gear or a helmet. As part of the company's 100th anniversary celebrations -- and a look forward to what might happen in the next 100 -- BMW has unveiled what it calls the Motorrad Vision Next 100, the bike of the future.
