So, if they do outlaw motorcycles in the UK, we have plenty of room for you guys over here and you're more than welcome to move here. The more the merrier.
A lot of us have more than one, so those stats are going to be skewed. It's probably closer to 1 in 70 if we average two. I have three that are registered right now.

It matters who that human is and what he wants your new 'autonomous' vehicle to do.

It can 'autonomous' lock your doors and deliver you to the nearest policestation because you made a traffic violation or to the bank because you are behind with your payment...etc...etc...The technology is available, just wait for it and buy that car with all it's 'benefits'.

Well, if you think on it a bit, cars driven by people are always trying to crash into us now.

We have learned to live while being a constant target like in a video game. Most likely artificial intelligence will be somewhat better. We will still have to ride with the knowledge that any vehicle at any time can come flying out of a third story window and land on our head.

Wifi may turn out to be more reliable than texting teenagers, or older girls applying eye makeup, or old guys falling asleep.

The future is really in Telepaporting. (Teleporting with telepathy). Think it and be there! Where we are going there are no roads. (Stolen from Back to the Future).

It can be skewed the other way, too. I live in North Dakota and there are a LOT of unregistered bikes here, too, whether they're off-road or small town.
