Safety has also gone beyond air bags and helmets. Worldwide Riders, a Cheyenne, Wyo.-based motorcycle accessories company, sells vests with protective bladders that inflate as riders are being ejected from their motorcycles,THX

Do they use Helium so you just float away into the sunset?
No haven't heard of this type of vest yet.

We have a couple of companies here that supply those. They have a compressed air cylinder that blows the jacket up to "Michelin" man proportions. You clip the jacket to the bike with a lanyard, as you are ejected the jacket inflates so that you roll or should that be bounce along the road.

May be a problem if you forget to unhook before getting off normally. 8)
