Default 2 wheeled volvos do it again

Now I'm not the number one fan of fully dressed bikes, but FFS, don't let the men in suits see this one. It'll be compulsory before you know it.

It is alrady an option on US spec Wings. Quite a few imported this year with the airbags fitted

Can't say I'm against it and it seems to work, but I would have a huge problem if it became compulsory, my worry is that it is the slipery slope...

Not too keen, might trap you on the bike! I think I would rather fall away from the bike than be on it after the smash, and don't get me started on the what if it goes off by accident while you are cornering! " funny questions " does it work when the bike is running and where do you put the petrol? John

Yeah, and how many head-on accidents occur when you're stopped, with your feet on the ground, and holding on, anticipating when the bag will go off, so you can avoid it pushing you off the bike?

Exactly what I was thinking! And did the guy say the difference between 'life or debt?' I could do with something to help with debt!
