I'm personally gonna hook a bungie cord to the backrest and with some slack to my rear belt loop. Then If I'm thrown forward, hopefully I'll bungie back right before I collide with anything hard.
I have to wait for my wrecked 650 to be fixed before trying this though. May be sooner than I thought, though, as they don't have to replace the frame. The only part of the main frame damaged was a metal tab that the fairing support frame mounts to. It was bent over a little. They think they can bend it back, and will re-inforce it if the weld is cracked or any fatigue is apparent.
So, anyone else want to bungie? I can get a discount if I buy a LARGE supply of cord... you know, the kind people use to jump off bridges with. :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:
Saw this on TV yesterday. They showed a guy sitting on the wing with the airbag deployed. It filled the whole area between him and the windscreen and looked like it was pushing his arms away from the grips. I'm not sure I would want that.
If that airbag goes off, it means you have hit something solid. I don't think it's gonna make much difference if your hands come off the grips. IMHO I'd rather the air bag push me right off the back of the bike than allow me to go flying over the front, cutting my jugular vein on the windshield as I go over.
