Motorcycle_Crash_Tech.jpgNational Geographic will be airing a documentary called "Motorcycle Crash Tech" tonight at 9pm. It does what it says on the tin, exploring advances in technology designed to reduce the chances of a crash or reduce the severity of injuries sustained in them. Judging by the two previews below, it'll be a high production value tour of some neat technologies -- we're particularly looking forward to the segment on the Alpinestars AST airbag suit -- but looks a little basic and ill-informed. Who knew downshifting was the most dangerous thing you could do on a bike or that riding without a slipper clutch should be left to expert test riders only?  >
