    I have enough trouble remembering to put the kickstand down, let alone unhook a jacket that will inflate and immobilize me.

    I can just see it now, at the local bike night: "Hey baby, how you PSSSHHHTTT!"

    Ken, interesting find...

    Phil, I have yet another appointment with my doctor in 15 minutes... so I will keep this short...

    I have a very angry broken collar bone that would very much disagree with you...

    Never said it was a bad idea, I am just concerned with the obvious need for a safety feature to prevent accidental inflation. If it works (which it looks like it should), it would be a great addition to any rider's gear bag. I know that one of the 250GP riders (Alex DeBon?) had one from Dainese that was in use this year, so it is a proven technology.

    Good luck with the Doc.

    They say that a tug force of 55lbs (est) is required to activate it and that if not disconected, (Phil) your scooter can be pulled over causing damage to that sweet ride....

    JK

    55lbs impact load is not really that much, you would defanitley need to remember that your attached.

    Long story. And complicated.


    At this point I will be seriously considering one of those suits for 2009 or 2010...
