How about a force field. Or an encapsulating bubble where you just bounce out of harm's way. Or a ray gun that's capable of disintegrating large SUV's or just the driver that is talking on a cell phone.
I'm sure I'm not alone in detecting the obvious flaw in this design.... "A coiled wire is attached to the vest and the motorcycle, once the rider leaves the machine a key is pulled and the vest inflates"......
Probably make for some interesting road side ***** stops when your mind is on other things
This is what I call "anticipatory R&D". Honda can now demonstrate to the "fools on the Hill" their committment to innovative MC safety. A completely worthless product, because it has nothing to do with real-world motorcycling, but threatening nevertheless, because we could possibly find this trash-tech being mandated on us in the future. Someone has to get in front of the Motorcycle Industry Council and get these guys to understand the damage they're doing to their customers, while appeasing the bureaucrats with their cleverness.
