Well, IMO we still have a long way to go before we reach the "after a while" point as far as reliability of fuel injection and fancier electronic gizmos on dirt bikes go... KTM doesn't still run carbs on their x00,000 $$$ factory rally bikes because they handle elevation and temperature changes so well...

But I sure was impressed that the Bergs start and run perfectly from 0 - >20,000 ft without having to touch anything! It's the future for sure.
