Default Re: Yamaha Crotch Air Bag

So, instead of an air bag, would we call this a tea bag?



...just wondering.

Don't we have enough people in the world already? So why is there a need to protect the abilty to add more to the list? I would prefer they protect those spectacular breasts out there! I think the Harley dudes would concur.

I was wondering the same thing. I sent an email to MO asking about it.



Haven't heard back, yet.



This is the first time I can remember that an article has disappeared from the forum in the past 6-7 years I've been around here.



I wonder what happened?

That was a really good article too! I saw the video at work but couldn't post a reply because of security issues there.



I'm thinking maybe MO is getting hijacked by a hacker?

Nah. I think it was probably something a bit more simple. Maybe a server issue or user error on their part.



We can just blame Pete.

You may have hit the nail on the head. Server got bogged down or something.

Default Open Book Fractures are no joke

Actually, this is probably a pretty good idea. The current fashion on sport bikes for a seat level much lower than the fuel tank is pretty dangerous. The result of many accidents is what is known as an "open book fracture", and it is BAD NEWS. At least with this type of air bag, perhaps you'll avoid having your pelvis split down the middle.
