Is this a good thing that might be coming to all bikes in the future or is it just insane? I know this will keep someone from going into the bars of the bike... but would they just bounce off to the car? Thoughts anyone?
will not work for dirtbikes or sports bike. Besides, if your about to crash and that thing pops out, well... You're def gonna crash then. And its not gonna protect you when your t-boned from the side or broadsided.
If I'm not mistaken, the most common kind of accident on a motorcycle is when a driver pulls out in front of a bike, in which case this bag would theoretically help. It wont do much for other types of accident, but then again, I doubt it would go off, as sensors will most likely be in the bottom of the front forks..
Heh... if they put the sensors on the forks would that end wheelies? Would be interesting to see someone try and find out. But I agree with Vash better drivers wouldn't be the solution. There will always be idiots on the road so investing in safety is the fastest andbest solution. Or maby we should do the exact opposite... take the safety outta the cages... that way when they dick up, there is one less cage driver lol. Just a thought.
I think the most common kinds of incidents involving cars are of the T-bone variety. Isn't the most common accident "single vehicle"? I guess the thinking is that if you're going to go straight over the bars that you'll bounce/ricochet off of the bag first and thereby slow your flight speed and duration. Maybe it prevents you from somersaulting? [shrug].
Anyway, I hope the flare pants aren't also part of the safety package. I'm not going back there man!
