    No, not funbags, get back in your boxes.

    Classic quote though:

    One rider whose experience underlines the kind of injuries that motorcyclists can receive in accidents is 32-year-old Dineth Wijayarathna.

    He was involved in a crash two years ago that left him seriously injured.

    He said: “I was doing about 130mph (210km/h), the rear wheel suspension failed on my motorcycle and I came off, broke my pelvis in two places, broke my back and broke a few ribs.”

    130mph and still alive! FFS!

    Unfortunately not ready yet – still very experimental but a great idea. airbag neck curtain on helmets is a good one as well – stabilise the neck in an accident.

    Could you not wear a self inflating life jacket and attach the toggle to your handlebars?
