    Lightbulb Video: Motorcyle with an Airbag

    The video looks conclusive... an airbag might save your life if in a collision with a car whilst riding a motorcycle.

    *And a nice intermission photo to help paint the picture clearly.

    The airbag seems like a good idea... i guess broken bones is better than smashed skull. Did they say which bikes they were looking to install it on?

    I'm guessing this is BMW, but not too sure.

    Dang, those hits without the airbag doesn't look good for the neck...

    I just hope that if airbags become available on MCs, eedjits doesn't take it to mean that they can drop the protective gear...

    In 2004, driving an MC were 34 times as likely to kill you than driving a car, and the ratio is rising all the time. Source: NHTSA - US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
