The Germans originally tested with fresh corpses and prison inmates (the inmates were promised reduced sentences if they survived). That is the practical way to do it, and a lot more interesting. Whatever happened? Did remorse set in? Was it too hard to prop a corpse ona Goldwing?
I should have mentioned that the use of corpses & inmates was in the early days of auto airbags. I saw a video of an inmate driving his Mercedes off the road and into a telephone pole - the airbag worked and he survived, but seemed a little shaken.
LOL good one.. Naw the XB12R is a for fun bike... Although with ABS and its great torque it could be a great commuter bike in rainiy Seattle. For commuting on the freeways in Seattle you need something big, agile and visible..i.e. a bright Yellow Goldwing. with ABS
