Now THIS is an interesting concept. Instead of having a motorcycle with an optional airbag (i.e. Honda Gold Wing)......how about a JACKET with an airbag?

Air Bag-Like Jacket Saves Motorcyclist's Life

This was on CNN's website this morning so it looks like the traffic on the company's website today may be responsible for the sloooowwwwwwww response time. As a result, I haven't had a chance to read any details of the product.

WOw Very Cool! A little less than $500 but compare that to a trip to the hospital, prescriptions, etc and $500 is nothing.

This product was discussed last year on the board. One of the guys from Arizona wears one.

Do a search on the forums and see if you find the thread.

Nope, look at my post above lol. I know I would do it and hopefully it is a simple co2 cartridge replacement to fix the problem lol.

That was cool. Kind of makes him look like the Michelin man when it blows up, but he lives!

Poooofffff, hell.
If it inflates fast enough and tight enough to do any good,
it might be more like BOOM/OOOFFFF!!
