Air bags

Attachment 11564
Motorcycle Airbag Enters Production
Naturally, safety research also plays a key role in motorcycle design, exemplified by the world's first production motorcycle airbag system now available on the new Gold Wing motorcycle shown on the stand.

By conducting extensive crash tests at its indoor omni-directional Real World Crash Test Facility, applying advanced computer simulation technology, and leading the way with the introduction of motorcycle rider test dummies, Honda has gathered and analyzed a wide array of data on the behavior of motorcycles during collisions. The motorcycle airbag is the result and it can help lessen the severity of injuries caused by frontal collisions

This safety crap is getting out of hand. Instead of putting airbags in cars, they should mount a big, sharp spike in the middle of the steering wheel pointed at the drivers head. Then people would either quit running into stuff, or be removed from the gene pool quickly and humanely. I gaurantee this would improve the quality of drivers on the road. The last thing we need to do is give motorcyclists a sense of "I'm protected by an airbag."

great idea...... i like it....


the airbag on the goldwing was put there in 08.... it is designed to work with the most common type of motorcycle accident... the 20-30 mph tbone.... *(where the car pulls out in front the bike)... it is effective...

i really like the idea of the spike on the steering wheel of cars... they are too safe.... back in the days the cars had no seat belts and big ass metal dashboards... you payed the price when you did something stupid...


thin the herd.. there are too many breeders....

maybe a computer controlled spike in all cars that determines who is at fault in a accident and spikes them through the forehead

did you guys happen to see the segment on the Isle of Mann series on Discovery HD Theater about race suits with airbags in them? Cool concept. I think it is made by Dainese.

EDIT: Here's a link to a video of their progression with the concept and actual crash footage.
