If it was mine I'd ride deployed all the time..........
It's all about the details.
As to the airbag, at some point I'll just drive a car.
My understanding of airbags is that you must combine them with restraint belt usage or they will break your neck from the combination of your bodies forward movement and the opposite thrust of the exploding airbag. Is there something I'm missing here on a Goldwing thats unlike a car situation?
This is kinda off thread but,as for cost of airbags in a car, I'll throw this out for fellow members entertainment: I am currently rebuilding a 2008 BMW 328xi sedan that was totaled by a dealer @ 542K. The airbags that deployed cost me as follows-driver seat side bag$204 list/$175 my cost,driver seat belt pre-tensioner-female$113/$93,left curtain bag and rt curtain bag-"used"$100 each,steering wheel bag"used"-$500,rt passenger bag-dash board"used"$250,Dash board(it blows open a laser cut hole in the dash when the passenger bag deploys) "used"$375,battery positive cable$158/$113(they deploy by separating from the battery).As you can see, these are pricey/over priced items, but do not by themselves cause an expensive car to be totaled even when you factor labor for replacement and the fact is that all to often they don't even deploy when they're supposed to!
The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
