I would say it was removed so it could be viewed from all angles. MO

Re: Air Bag

That air bag deployed so fast while the bike was stopped that the rider was catapulted off the back of the Wing and took the trunk with him! :)

Interesting photo. I assume they took the trunk off so that the viewing angle was improved. I wonder why they took the windshield off. Do you think it was becuase the windshield may get broken by the airbag upon deployment?

It makes one think about the saftey of larger windshields.

I wish the bikes trunk and rear backrest snapped off easily. I think the bike looks much better

The Photo looks like it was from Honda Homecoming. If I remember correctly, the bike is a pre-production test mule with over 125,000 miles. The trunk and windshield were removed for visability during the air bag deployment demo.

looks like the trunk was removed to make way for the visibility, but also to hook up some wires under the seat in order to set off the air bag?

Yes they had a remote activation unit for the Demo. They did the demo at least twice that day at Honda Homecomong.
