My girlfriend is always freaking out when I go riding, this might shut her up for once lol. Is there anything like this out right now?

i think it's still in development. if it comes out most people couldn't afford it i'll bet. i wonder if it would deploy if you just drop the bike, that would be embarrassing and expensive LOL.

dumb bikers don't get to be old bikers

there are airbag systems on the market right now that you wear as a vest, and they protect your head/neck/upper torso from impact.
that looks friggin awesome. but my first thought is, how will this thing know the difference if i just happen to hit a bump in the road, or i purposely raise up when going over railroad tracks or avoiding a bump or something similar?
