I must be a pussy because I have power steering and think it's fantastic.
But I enjoy riding through rugged terrain with lots of trees, boulders & other obstacles thus requiring a lot of steering wheel movement. It can be tiring with one arm after a few hours.
Guess it would have little or no value on a machine that seldom sees an obstacle, just miles & miles of wide open area. Cruise control would be more appropriate for those conditions.
I think that their flight from and hatred of technology is self-defeating. The Buddha rests quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of a mountain or in the petals of a flower. To think otherwise is to demean the Buddha--which is to demean oneself.
