Honda Develops World’s First Production Motorcycle Airbag System (http://world.honda.com/news/2005/2050908.html)

Unfortunately the rider appears to be kissing some big pink ass.

Don't make much sense to me. Will it stop you from being ejected from the bike...great...now I am stuck to a 600 lbs bike that is sliding down the highway or even worse doing endos.

Methinks the airbag will blow your hands off the handlebars, thereby allowing the rider to be ejected quicker.

I think we should have ejection seats...wired right up to the airbag sensors! :D ...of course I don't know if I would trust a harley dealership to pack my parachute...scary thought

What happens with a malfunction? Most drivers get startled when an airbag goes off and you have the possibility of losing control. What next, seat belts? No thanks!!

That a good idea....an ejection seat with a "panic" button that will eject your ass with a rocket powered seat to send you up 50 feet into the air with a parashute landing..

I big bike like that, a airbag may help. Either way I think Honda needs alot of help in the design departmant. That bikes rear end is ugly!

Aw man...my eyes are watering from laughing so hard. :roflblack

That's almost down right obscene, it even has cheeks. Maybe they should have picked a color other than pink. :spank
