Does a sportbike sit higher than a G-Wing? If so, would the higher seat height make it easier for the rider to be thrown over the roof, possibly avoiding smashing into the top of the car in an accident?

I would guess they have some kind of sled that it rides in until it is up to speed, then the sled stops, and the bike continues on.

Bikes are very stable, once moving. If it wasn't for the loose nut behind the wheel (handlebars) they really wouldn't crash. It will just keep going straight, until it slows down too much.

Hi All-

It would weigh too much for a sportbike, but it's gotta' be a bit more comfy sustaining a crash with airbags as compared to a traditional motorcycle.
