    Companies, Yamaha was one I think, were also testing tank mounted airbags.

    Yeah, I’m not much of a motorcycler myself but I’m surprised I hadn’t actually heard of these until this came onto my YouTube feed.  I do a bit of mountain biking myself and our bikes tend to steal a lot of stuff from motorbikes and adapt them for use on ours, so if they’re doing that for motorbikes I’m surprised a smaller version this hasn’t come onto the radar for us given some of our crashes can involve some fairly serious injury too.

    To me having the airbag built into the clothing makes more sense than the tank bag given the amount of ways you could come off the bike, the tank pad could only prevent you being thrown off in a rather specific dead centre head on collision which isn’t even that common of a way motorcycles can crash, they are most often rear ended, t-boned or run right over.
