Same here man. I think people have been drinking too much of the marketing cool aid about safety systems on bars. Over engineered crap. Best safety system is your brain use it before you rig up.

Hope they keep it simple and adjustable bar length.

Of course I disagree, bar lenght have been adjustable since 2005 or 2006 and the North system is the most widely used one. Safety that goes through the bar to one front line (real front lines, not a Y) have been around for a while too now. I don't see over engeneering there.

I was just wondering what innovations were stolen from WH...

I like it too.... but the Ocean Rodeo is better.
Simple, reliable, repairable at home and versatile.

i had a proto in my hands.
it'll be clean, safe, and smart.

techy enough for the geeks to freek out on but still simple enough for the stoners not to get confused.

Does anyone know if the 2011 bar will be updatable with a kit?

Bye the way, WH website is currently down. Does it mean something on the release of the 2012 ???
