Pride Comes Before A Fall


Just let me clarify my position. No matter how much this device would save me from potential injury, there's NO WAY I'm wearing one. It looks fucking ridiculous. I have my image to think about.

I wish I could watch it but this new fascist firewall we installed is blocking it out.

What is it some kind of inflatable jock strap?

If it's that, I am fer it, because you can never protect the twins too much.

Inchy said...

It some sort of bizarre air-bag arrangement that deploys around your neck and shoulders. I can only assume that it's triggered by some sort of lanyard or cable that you attach when you first get on the bike.

Knowing my luck, I'd forget about it when I park up and trigger it at the exact moment that some hot milf walks by dreaming about men in leather.

Oh--I thought it was for Chang and Eng.

Yes, an accidental deployment would be fatal to any MILF that walked by--because that sounds like something your REAL MOM would make you wear.

Well, I guess that guy has the safest shoulders on the road, but the rest of his body will get beat to shit, right?

Cool site!

Knew those eighties shoulder pads would come in handy one day...

My boy, thinks he looks like a character from Ben 10...

Inchy said...

Dr Ken - Welcome onboard the Falcon.

Steve - Not having any kids I had to google 'Ben 10' but I can see where Junior is coming from.

Your image to think about? C'mon, you could wear that down the local and folk would be saying "that Inchy must've hit a midlife crisis, he's fairly smartened himself up"

Looks like he's being attacked by the Pillsbury Dough Boy.

Ron, apparently said...

The "crash" seems to be occuring at about 10 mph. I'd like to see a mannequin come off at 100mph+ and see how it performs. I'd wear it if it worked. Looks fine if it doesn't deploy.
