Basspro said:So....anything that may lessen your injury or pain is worth it in this situation, the 1300.00 option will pay for itself in the first 5 minutes you are in the emergency room with an impact like this...so I hope we never need it, but just like a bulletproof vest for a police officer, it is nice to know it is there!
Don't leave home without it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the surface it does look sorta silly, but then I never thought they would be able to make ABS brakes work on a bike either, and now I own two that have ABS.
It will be interesting to see if the air bag appears on any other models and how it works in the real world.
