I read today a big wheel at Marysville Ohio was ask why Honda choose "PINK" for the color of the air bag on the GL1800, can anyone guess what his answer was???

Take a guess, I'll post his reply later.

I have no idea, that is a good question though.
Can't wait to hear the answer.

To increase the chances of being seen should the accident occur off the road in a lightly traveled area.

To help cover up the blood since the air bag broke your face shield and cut your face up?

So the airbag (asspad) can crap your face back out of it after the crash. :lol:

and seems Honda's Goldwing uses the same suppliers for their air bags.

So there you have it, but I still don't know why pink for any units, when there are so many other colors to choose from.

Only thing I know, that if own a air-bag model someday, that I never activate it to find out.

If you own one and you see the air bag, the color is the least of your problems. :wink:

So that EMS would see it in case of an accident?
I am afraid that would not work if you had that pink goldwing I saw here last week...

The Harley guys heard of this "pink" airbag and laughed.... They are making thier airbags out of iron so they "look" tougher after an accident...

To entertain themselves while reading the Goldwing owner websites discuss the color.

If it saves my life I couldn't care less what color it is.
