Default Survey

Hello folks,

As part of a marketing course, i need to do some research on motorcycle protective gear. For that purpose i have made a very brief survey. I would really appreciate it if you guys could take the survey. It will probably take less than 2/3 minutes to complete.

Survey provided by FreeOnlineSurveys.com

Here's you're answer all at once. We, the members of MO, believe in the use of protective gear. We don't all agree on the types of gear or the use or non-use of helmets. However, it is obviuous that the use of ANY protective gear is better than the use of none.
Thank you- please drive thru

No we don't! The only protective gear the S. FL contingent uses comes in small, wallet sized packages!

I'm thinking of a foam-rubber inflato-suit that inflates on impact with a car or lamp post, and protects the rider by bouncing him into the next county, away from danger.
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

I like the idea of the Goldwing's airbag. Given the rather distressing choice of color and stitching patterns Honda chose, the airbag reminds me of a rather large womans backside....

I realize it's in poor taste but I'd much rather plant my face in the middle of a portly womans ass than the side of a Suburban, therefore I vote for Goldwing like airbags........

I believe in using a helmet, but I honestly don't see the necessity of wearing full body protective gear.

You just thought of an excellent reason not to ride motorcycles at all!
