    Never heard of a bike with a "tip over switch".  Neat idea though.  Does such a thing exist?

    No idea how many bikes but does exist. My buddy has a Kawasaki 300 dirt bike. Dropped it and it wouldn't restart. He's old and bike belongs to his son. Called son, he came out couldn't start it either. They retrieved the bike then son all of a  sudden remember the switch and the fact although no key for this bike you have to turn it off, let it  recycle , and bingo it started!

    I can confirm there is no angle sensor on these bikes that cuts the engine. I have had a stationary drop on the F850GS I used to own and the engine kept running.
    I would assume the offroad origins of the GS preclude it as when riding off-road you could bank the bike over and cause the engine to cut off unexpectedly.
    Personally, I've never been offroad riding whilst routinely banking my bike over 90 degrees and cursing it for cutting out!
