Yamama introduces air bag for motorycles - for your crotch

  1. That's a bit scary; if a car's airbag can break your nose, what's that thing going to do to you?
    I can see it being popular amongst the Oxford Street leather set.
  2. Beats hitting the steering column.
  3. It should prevent the suction cup effect for the other sex :rofl:
  4. Not as silly as it sounds, a while ago i read an article about the rising occurance of testicle damage in accidents due to the increasing size of fuel tanks on bikes :shock:
  5. No doubt about that, VVP. That wasn't my point, though. Airbags have been known to go off in suituations when the occupant of the vehicle was in no danger of hitting the steering column or anything else - such as hitting a kangaroo or guidepost, or when the vehicle has been rear-ended. In some instances this results in a broken nose when no injury would otherwise occur.
    Jokes are never funny when you have to explain them.
