Ya, it looks like the guys head/Helmet hit right at the top of the door.FireEater said:Very interesting. So one would live an extra 15 seconds, if that long, with an airbag on a crash like that.
The reason that rider would have been hurt is that he was NOT wearing "above the ankle boot" plus he looks like a dummy!J-mac said:Ya, it looks like the guys head/Helmet hit right at the top of the door.FireEater said:Very interesting.

I think in this case Honda would have been better off installing an ejection seat :roll: :banghead:
You beat me to it. I have no idea what makes people think that laying a bike down is a good thing - even if it were something they were capable of (I wonder how many people practice this maneuver).Smitty said:Laying the bike down is the last thing I'd want to do! The brakes don't work very well with the bike on it's side.
Ummmm duhhh... if you were paying attention and had the time to think about laying it down or jumping off the bike, you already blew your wad! Most experienced motorcyclists would simply hit their brakes and stop, or would swerve to avoid the collision.Landtuna said:Three alternatives:
1) Evade the collision.
2) Lay the bike down.....fast!
3) Jump as high as you can (hopefully, over the obstacle). Won't leave you free of injuries, and hopefully another vehicle doesn't run over you, but is likely to be less injurious than ramming into the side of the car.
Both assume you are paying attention and have time to choose.
