  1. Sh!t, that thing actually works!
    Now all they gotta do is work out how to get him back down out of orbit...
  2. Apart from where his helmet still smacked in to the top of the car... :shock:
  3. yeah, but an actual rider (not dummy) would be chinning the tank anyway :p
  4. At what speed do you think that would have been done at?
  5. This is problematic for me.

    First thought is that the rider is now heading upwards instead of forwards. Eventually he has got to come down!.

    Likely with his legs astride the bike :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: .

    The second thought is to do with the forces involved in forcing him/her upwards. Now the air bag has a big area, but the forces involved to stop the rider, then send them vertically, at what looks to be roughly the same speed that the bike was traveling, must have imparted seriously damaging injuries to the rider.

    Seems to me, that it's quite possible that the injuries from going over the top of the car could well have been less.
  6. From having gone over a car myself It helps if your knocked out ie :Totally relaxed when you hit.
