Crash-testing airbags Is a hard job, but someone’s got to do it. This motorcycle airbag crash test video from Bering is the latest salvo in the ever-escalating motorcycle airbag war. The best part is that the stuntman in this video didn’t sacrifice himself for scientific testing, just a press demo. Ouch.

    Didn’t slow a beat right up to the fender. Impressive.

    The best part is that he lands on his hips, not the airbag.

      I would pay to see the science types come over after the fact and tell him to do it again, and try to land on his neck this time.

    painful to watch. how does he not crack an ankle?

  • Steve

    Looks as if he stood on the pegs a bit at the last minute. Smart if you don’t want your pelvis broken open like a book.

    Off topic: are HFL usernames not unique?

      They’re differentiated by email address in our back end, looks you you and the other Kevin share a name.

        So I guess we shouldn’t try to pull that ‘I am Spartacus’ bit with you guys, huh?

        Wes, you shouldn’t keep valuable info in your back end. I’ve always found pockets work better than being a mule. :)
