How about seat belts and roll bars too? Along with airbags I think we may have the safety thing covered. I mean safety is the most important thing here.

If we add two more wheels we can end that pesky balancing problem and make our bikes really really really safe.

Cool.thanks for sharing the video gear_head. I was thinking the other day how a Goldwing with ABS could be just the thing I need for commuting in the HOV lane. Honda is awesome..

Aren't Goldwings made in the USA too?.

Didja ever see that Mercedes ad from the early 60's that had two 220's crashing head-on into each other at 65 mph? It was filmed at the 'ring. A seatbelt ad. The drivers emerged unscathed.



I feel like a corpse on the 110N at rush-hour sometimes...

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
